Editorial Reviews

Review

An English farmer and lay preacher devoted 18 years to creating a unique 1:100 scale model of this temple.The Splendor of the Temple is a lovely pictorial monument to that man's work, and it gives a running explanation of the temple's history and all of its items and rooms. (Baptist Bulletin 2004-06-03) --1

About the Author

Alec Garrard is a lay preacher in Norfolk, England. Each "brick" of his model was baked in their family oven. His 1:100 scale model of Herod's temple is so large that it occupies a barn adjacent to his sixteenth-century farmhouse.

Mr. Garrard has done a labor of love and a remarkable service in constructing his 100:1 scale model of Herod's temple mount.

This book has innumerable quality photographs. It has more information than Edersheim's, which also contains the temple services etc. Its a little hard to find things since the chapters don't have subtitles within them. It's not scholarly, but for the interested reader. I think the pictures alone are worth the price of the book. There is information on every court, internal gate, external gate, the Holy & Most Holy Places, etc. Well worth the price.

I cannot recommend this book too highly to readers intrigued by the decribed structure and functionality of the Herodian Temple in Jerusalem. The author has done two magnificent tasks:

first, creating a scale model of Herod's Temple based upon descriptions from Flavius Josephus, the Midrash, and Scripture.

second, writing a considered text to accompany excellent photos of his model, intelligible to anyone who can read English.

His text and terrific color photos are unencumbered by "should-be" tradition, and the book makes a compact valucable addition to any Jerusalem scholar's library.

Freemasons should note the shape of the main building from above. Tau for two?

I do not have the ability to judge the acuracy of the written contents of this book but Alec Garrard's architectural model is simply amazing. Garrard spent three years on research and fourteen years constructing this twenty foot by twelve foot recreation of Herod's Temple. "The Splendor of the Temple" is beautifully photographed and it is a real joy to own. This book is tribute to one skilled craftsman's love of a subject. Highly recommended.

Mr. Garrard has done a labor of love and a remarkable service in constructing his 100:1 scale model of Herod's temple mount. The book is beautiful with many pictures of the model that make you feel as though you are helicoptering above Jerusalem in the time of Christ. There are also many helpful maps that show the layout of the temple itself as well as the Herodian extentions to the temple plaza. While on a recent trip to Israel, I found the book very helpful in visualizing what the old temple would have been like in pre-Dome-of-the-Rock times.

For those of you who are interested in old archeological times and histories, this books for you. Written by Mr. Alec Garrard, he gives you a backstory from the time of King Solomon's first temple and to the Babylonian destruction to the return of the Jews to Israel after the Persian victory. He gives you step by step time frames and a chronological timeline of it's entire history even up to muslim rule and finally to the rebirth of the state of Israel. Plenty of pictures on almost every page with closeups and his own miniature scale model of Herod's temple and temple mount built from years of research and investigation. The man constructed every tiny brick in his family's ceramic ovens to complete his rendition of Herod's temple. Excellent, thorough book on the Jewish temple!
