For centuries it stood, until the Babylonians captured Jerusalem and destroyed the Jewish temple. The devastation was both physical and spiritual: the Temple was an awesome structure, but it was also the place of the Lord's presence with his people, the place of worship.
About seventy years later, the people returned to Jerusalem and built a second temple. It wasn't as spectacular as the original, and those who remembered Solomon's golden pillars, wept over the difference. Yet it was the house of God to the exiles who came home.
Some 300 years later, Herod the Great, one of the greatest builders in the ancient world, renovated and expanded the second Temple and made it famous, rivaling the finest monuments of that time. This is the temple where Jesus was dedicated as a baby, where he honored the widow for giving all she had, and where he threw out the money changers.
The Temple is important, both as a historical and architectural masterpiece, and as a spiritual symbol of God's desire to dwell with his people.
This full-color book gives a complete easy-to-understand overview of the history of the Temple in Jerusalem. People who enjoy Bible study will love the fact that it answers many questions about how the Temple looked during biblical times. Bible scholars and professors will enjoy the well-annotated text. The author is archaeologist and professor Dr. Randall Price. He has spent more than 30 years exploring the Holy Land studying the Temple.
This book has more than 100 images, charts, diagrams, photos, and illustrations, many of which have never published before. It covers the span of time from Abraham to modern day.

"As former architect of the Temple Mount Excavations, following the 6-Day War, and as one who has, since then, been engaged in intensive Temple research, I highly recommend this book. Its lavish illustrations, which include color maps, diagrams and authoritative reconstructions, coupled with clear verbal descriptions, offer unique insights into the subject of the Temple. Christian leaders and visitors to the Holy Land will find it provides an invaluable overview of the topic from the time of the Tabernacle to the present day." - Dr. Leen Ritmeyer
The Rose Guide to the Temple provides an excellent blend of research of literary sources, archeological evidence, and architectural calculations of the Temple structures. It is based on painstaking research into all the technical details provided by Scripture sources, as well as ancient literary descriptions. Its precision and visual clarity make this Guide into an indispensable source for our knowledge about the ancient Temples. The student of Scripture as well as of religion will learn much from the clear and beautiful presentation of details that cannot be easily visualized when reading Scripture passages. This book also clearly lays out the relation between the few remains of the Temple with reference to the original buildings. This is an absolute must for the modern student and visitor to Jerusalem. - Dr. Emanuel Tov, J.L. Magnes Professor of Bible, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Robert Acevedo5 Stars Out Of 5Temple at its best!August 10, 2017Robert AcevedoQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This over 250 page book covers all aspects and information regarding the Temple. It includes beautiful illustrations, my favorite feature, timelines and artist concept photos, element I particularly enjoyed. All Temples construction, infrastructure and architecture detail will make a great impression on any person who uses the book. The amazing collection give you a living experience on how this great place looked like in each of the construction events it underwent.
Historical background and context tie how the permanent praise location was built relating it to its pre existing mobile facilities known as the tabernacle. Also references the destruction of the first temple and its causes, the rebuilding of it into the second temple, the destruction of the second temple after Christs ministry, the actual temple mount site and the future building of the future Temple.
All this information is tied to the biblical symbolism and theological meaning in one easy to look place. This makes the book a treasure to keep for times to come.
Any study group will benefit from its information and illustrations will help any person relate its importance to our worship today. This book is a winner among winners!
