The use of Solomon's Temple is described as a foreshadow of salvation through Jesus Christ.

This edition is the George Offor text including his introduction and notes. "Every part of the building, including the foundation, its altar, its courts, the holy of holies, all the utensils, and the ark, were types of that more glorious system which, in the fulness of time, appeared as the antitype, and perfected the Divine revelation. The temple becomes therefore an object of our special attention as a light to guide us while searching into gospel truths."-George Offor

More About John Bunyan
John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England,
and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he
believed God had done for a special purpose.
John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher who is best known for his allegorical novel The Pilgrim' s Progress, published in 1678. Bunyan' s faith was profoundly influenced by two books owned by his wife: Arthur Dent's Plain Man's Pathway to Heaven and Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and he turned to preaching following the death of his guide and mentor, John Gifford.
In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of
Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years. Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress.
After his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.

Reviews - What do customers think about Solomon's Temple Spiritualized?
A Bible Student's viewpoint. May 7, 2010
First of all it is John Bunyan --- how could it not be a book of spiritual depth and truth? As he declares in his introduction, he sticks to scripture and personal revelation of its interpretation and shares the truth he has gleaned from his vast biblical knowledge with his readers.
Highly recommended for anyone who desires to connect the Old Testament with the New and find the fulfillment of Christ as seen in the law and in the construction of the temple. It is not a difficult book to read, and there are many references given to scripture passages used in his interpretations so that the reader can cross reference and compare. It would make a great individual study or group study.
I would also recommend it for pastors --- no matter what the degree of their education. It is a tremendous book for comparing the development of a church with the building of a temple. Example: Bunyan speaks of those who built the temple and those within the church today. "All sons are servants, but not all servants are sons." It is not enough to enter the "outer court" --- that doesn't cost much. The "inner court" is the place of sacrifice. I would think a presentation of this would be a great way to challenge any congregation to examine their place in worship.
