This stunning book, with its 160 illustrations, most of them in full color, is a history of the Temple or Temples in Jerusalem from Solomon's time to the present. The book reads like an archaeological excavation, digging deeper and deeper at one site. Starting with a discussion of the Palestinian denial of a Jewish Temple, the book proceeds to explore the Islamic Dome of the Rock, the little-known Roman Temple of Jupiter, Herod's massive Temple Mount, the Temple built by the exiles returning from Bablyon and finally, Solomon's Temple. With a lively and informative text to accompany the pictures, "Jerusalem's Temple Mount" is replete with archaeology, history, legends (Jewish, Christian and Muslim), inscriptions, biblical interpretations and more
