ENDORSEMENTS FOR ROSE GUIDE TO THE TEMPLE:
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
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.
Leen Ritmeyer, Former architect of the Temple Mount Excavations
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

Jerusalem Time Line
Don’t Travel to Israel Without This Time Line
Do you have trouble keeping all of those Bible people and events straight?
Even the president of a Christian publishing company can visit Jerusalem and walk away confused. It’s hard to imagine what Jerusalem was like during King David’s time…or during Jesus’ time, and it’s tough to keep Bible people and events in chronological order.
Here’s what you’ll discover by using this time line:
- The key people and events during biblical times: King David and Solomon.
- How the Temple was built and destroyed, and rebuilt and destroyed.
- How the Temple looked at the time of Christ.
You’ll also understand today’s news better. You will—
- Understand why Jerusalem is one of the most fought-over cities of all time.
- Learn the fascinating history of the modern State of Israel.
- Know the history of the Crusaders and the Islamic Sultans.
This Jerusalem Time Line is perfect for travelers — It’s a slim pamphlet that will fit in the back of your Bible, inside your camera case, and in most purses. Or, if you have an iPad, buy the PDF version!
