Review:

"An exciting and accurate account of the discovery and the decipherment of the Copper Scroll, bringing to life the intrigue and controversy surrouding this buried treasure." Church Building "stunning...The book reads like an archaeological excavation, digging deeper and deeper at the site." Reviewed in Church Building, 2008 "This is a wonderful pictorial history of one of the world's most famous sacred areas ... Readers interested in the debate about allegedly forged or perhaps authentic inscriptions will enjoy the discussion of the so-called Yehoash inscription that came to light in 2003. Although the book is meant for the non-specialist, scholars will benefit from using its fine plates, bibliographical notes and index." International Review of Biblical Studies, vol. 54:2007/08 ."..a publishing tour de force."-Biblical Archeology Review "In this beautifully illustrated volume he lends his charismatic writing style to one of the most fascinating and contentious topics in religion, archaeology, and history...The work does not present any new evidence or theses, but rather consolidates research published in BAR and in academic journals, offering the material in a condensed and very readable manner, perfect for a popular audience. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-and upper-level undergraduates and general readers." S. H. Werlin, CHOICE, April 2008, Vol. 45, No. 8--Sanford Lakoff "Shank's book is a masterpiece of haute vulgarization. He begins his narrative with the Temple Mount as it exists today and works backwards from there, digging deeper and deeper into the past, until he gets to Solomon's temple. The colored photographs are beautiful, and the architectural projections illuminating...It will help students- and teachers- visualize Solomon's great building program." Lawrence S. Cunningham, Commonweal --Sanford Lakoff "Many readers will gain much enlightenment and enjoyment by perusing this attractive volume."--Sanford Lakoff "Journal for The Study of the Old Testament " "The colored photographs are beautiful, and the architectural projections illuminating. The text distills a great deal of scholarship into readable prose...A few years ago I mentioned favorably in this column Simon Goldhill's The Temple of Jerusalem (Harvard University Press), but if I had to choose between the two, I'd go with Shanks' book, if only because it is so beautifully illustrated. It will help students and teachers visualize Solomon's great building program." Lawrence S. Cunningham, Commonweal, February 29, 2008--Sanford Lakoff "Filled with interesting full-color photographs, reconstruction drawings, and charts accompanied by excellent descriptions, this is a useful survey of the history of the Temple Mount, by the founder and editor of "Biblical Archaeology Review". With a journalist's eye for what is interesting, Shanks takes the reader backward through the history of the area, from the current state to its early period. The book is replete with archaeological details, history and legends, inscriptions, changing interpretations, and even discussions of forgeries. One learns of the various rival, overlapping, and fluid claims of Muslims, Christians, and Jews, while following how the archaeological details illuminate the various historical developments in clear, concise language geared to the non-specialist." -"Jewish Book World"

Synopsis:

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 forgeries.
