"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 [Rose Guide to the Temple]. 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."

"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."

It is a real pleasure for me to describe my joy and deep appreciation for The Rose Guide to the Temple by Dr. Randall Price. Lay people and scholars alike will find that the narrative script, the graphics, and the pictures are most scintillating and beautifully carried out throughout the entire book. I have not seen anything that compares to this work of academic responsible research and superb aesthetic taste. Not only does this text cover all periods of history in which the temple was part of those times, but it carefully and irenically explores the question of a future temple in Jerusalem with a fairness to all sides in the debate.
Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
In Randall Price's Rose Guide to the Temple, the Bible student is introduced to the fascinating subject of the history of the temple both in Judaism and in its future expectation. Rarely is one book an accurate, beneficial and aesthetically beautiful yet short volume. If you are reading about the temple and its impact on the worship of Israel, this book is absolutely essential. I rejoice in making this volume available here at Southwestern Seminary and encourage you to add it to your personal library.
Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, TX
This book has more photos, images, time lines, maps, diagrams, and floor plans of ANY book on the Temple I've ever seen. Stunningly beautiful. A must-have for any Bible student or traveler to the Holy Land.

on 8/10/2017 Guide to the Temple: marvelous!
This 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 it’s 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 Christ’s 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!
on 12/11/2012 Rose Guide to the Temple
Dr. Price's Rose Guide to the Temple is an extremely informative piece on the archaeology, history, and significance of the temple mount in Jerusalem. This work clears up much of the confusion as to the actual temple (though not its meaning, the debate will continue) encountered in the Biblical texts. Dr. Price does well by sticking to the facts of the historical temple. He also explains historically why the temple mount is so disputed in modern times. Dr. Price uses extra-biblical texts, visual aids and time lines to help the reader understand the physical dimensions of the temple, its history, and its significance. The text is more than informative as to the different theories on the placement and size of the temple. The illustrations of the temple and its precincts have given me a new insight into the structure and the relevance of its size and placement in today's disputes. The time lines were some of the most helpful tables explaining the importance of certain dates.
on 12/7/2012 Rose Guide to the Temple
As a seminary student, I have the privilege of taking the course, "The Temple in Bible Prophecy," with Dr. Randall Price this year. I read through "Rose Guide to the Temple," and in addition to a reference tool (even the creative display with overlays displaying cut-outs of the Tabernacle and the Temple contributes both academic and visual interest and depth to the book), this slim volume is thorough--replete with charts with biblical references, blueprints, maps, timelines, and archaeological discoveries that I find insightful and informative for all students. Dr. Price's book is thorough: its four sections are organized according to the Temple and temple phases in chronological order--beginning with Eden (the first sanctuary) through the Temple Mount today and Future Temple. Each section, then, provides, along with a myriad of helps for students (perhaps visual learners like myself), in a logical layout, a better understanding of the centuries of conflict built up around the Temple.
on 12/7/2012 Rose Guide to the Temple
The Rose Guide to the Temple is an incredible book. Its perfect for visual learners because of its detailed pictures and diagrams on every page. I enjoyed how it brings the temple to life with the pictures, being able to see what the items it talks about look like adds so much to the experience. The book is easy to understand and is reliable. Dr. Price's biblical references prove to the reader that this book is based on true accounts in the Bible and isn't just made up. This book is full of incredible pictures, paragraphs of incredible information and diagrams such as timelines, maps, and cutaway pictures. The layout of the book is very neat and appealing to the eyes. The print is easy to read and the colors are vibrant. It is truly and incredible book.
on 12/7/2012 Great Read
I am a student at Liberty University, and I had the privilege of having Dr. Price as my Old Testament professor. He is a genius and explains the history and the temple in such a way that many different age groups can understand. This book was not a light read in the slightest, but it was very informative! Overall, it was a very good book. I definitely learned a lot. I really enjoyed how it went through history and it explained how the temple changed. My favorite part was the aesthetic portion; the book is very well put together with illustrations and pictures to help readers better visualize the things in the temple as well as the temple itself. Excellent book!
