Jerusalem's Temple Mount: From Solomon to the Golden Dome

Customer Reviews:

Temple Mount, Dome of the Rock, al- Sharif, Aqsa, Quds

By William Garrison Jr. - January 3, 2008

This 2007 book about the Temple Mount/al-Sharif in Jerusalem/Quds is a very worthy update of archeological research regarding this site holy to the three religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Yes, numerous other books have been written about this site, and one wonders: "Can another book REALY add anything NEW to this subject? After all, isn't all of this Mount stuff over 1,500 years old? What is its relevance today?" Nonetheless: "YES," is the clear answer in promoting this book. What is refreshing about this book is that the author does present a rather straight-forward "This is what I think" about some topic, but he also CLEARLY and OBJECTIVELY presents alternative views about some disputed aspect of the Mount. The author looks at the current claims by Muslims that Solomon's Temple never existed (in their attempt to deny Jewish claim to Jerusalem), and discusses the changing boundaries of the Etheral City. He loudly laments the excavations undertaken by the Muslims without... read more

A Mountain of Praise

By O. Paul - December 1, 2007

This was the most excellent and comprehensive look at the temple mount that I have ever read. I used it for a research paper on the temple mount and it was by far the most helpful and interesting book. It is very well written and includes beautiful pictures. It is fairly unbiased and really gets into the details of every issue and facet of history it covers. Would make a great coffee table book as well as research book. I am so glad I own this book and I will lend it out and read it myself many many times. If you have ANY interest in the Temple Mount I highly recommend this book.

Well Written and Fascinating Look at the Temple Mount

By Charles Foster Kane - March 11, 2009

Hershel Shanks has written a fascinating and lively history of the Temple Mount. The author takes us backwards in history, beginning in the present day, and traces the history of the Temple Mount back through the Islamic period, the Second Temple period, the First Temple period and to the time prior to Solomon's Temple. The book is well-written, lively, beautifully illustrated, and absolutely fascinating for someone interested in this subject. The author manages to cover the most compelling biblical and historical issues surrounding this most venerated parcel of real estate. One only wonders what archeological discoveries lie beneath the Mount itself, currently off limits to researchers by edict of the Muslim authorities.
