Product description

In this 48-page book, Dr. Roy B. Blizzard presents a historical view of the Mountain of God (the Temple Mount), the individuals associated with it, the structures that occupied the site, as well as the present condition and future implications. Perhaps no other spot on earth is considered so sacred or is surrounded by so much tradition and/or legend as Mount Moriah - the Holy Mountain, the Mountain of God, the "Mountain of the Lord." Dr. Blizzard describes the First and Second Temples in detail - their location, construction, furnishings, and inner courts - citing biblical and historical sources throughout. A vivid picture emerges as he explains the political, economic, and social forces that led to the rise and fall of the Temples, their destruction, and the building of the Dome of the Rock and El-Aqsa Mosque. In conclusion, Dr. Blizzard considers these important questions: Does anything remain of the Temple? What happened after the destruction of the Temple? Where was the Holy of Holies really located? The Mountain of the Lord paints an intriguing picture of the intertwined history of Israel, Jerusalem, and the many religions that have battled for the Temple Mount. (Length: 8,000 words).
