Reviews - What do customers think about The Splendor of the Temple?
Very informative Nov 9, 2006
This book has innumerable quality photographs. It has more information than Edersheim's, which also contains the temple services etc. Its a little hard to find things since the chapters don't have subtitles within them. It's not scholarly, but for the interested reader. I think the pictures alone are worth the price of the book. There is information on every court, internal gate, external gate, the Holy & Most Holy Places, etc. Well worth the price.
A Wonderful Book May 1, 2006
Mr. Garrard has done a labor of love and a remarkable service in constructing his 100:1 scale model of Herod's temple mount. The book is beautiful with many pictures of the model that make you feel as though you are helicoptering above Jerusalem in the time of Christ. There are also many helpful maps that show the layout of the temple itself as well as the Herodian extentions to the temple plaza. While on a recent trip to Israel, I found the book very helpful in visualizing what the old temple would have been like in pre-Dome-of-the-Rock times.
a model example of a building which no longer exists Mar 29, 2006
I cannot recommend this book too highly to readers intrigued by the decribed structure and functionality of the Herodian Temple in Jerusalem. The author has done two magnificent tasks: first, creating a scale model of Herod's Temple based upon descriptions from Flavius Josephus, the Midrash, and Scripture. second, writing a considered text to accompany excellent photos of his model, intelligible to anyone who can read English. His text and terrific color photos are unencumbered by "should-be" tradition, and the book makes a compact valucable addition to any Jerusalem scholar's library. Freemasons should note the shape of the main building from above. Tau for two?
