According to the introduction, the majority of these essays are original to this volume and about half of them were given at a FARMS conference in 1993. Not only are there three essays by Hugh Nibley, there are some ground breaking topics such as Donald Parry's notion of Sacred and Profane space that has been discussed more frequently in recent years. All of the essays are solid and interesting. There are also a number of insightful illustrations that amplify the points the text is trying to make.
Yes, this is a big book. However, you don't need to try and eat it all in one sitting. Since it is a series of discrete essays, you can read them at your leisure and take your time thinking through what the author is saying. I think you will come away with new insights and a deeper commitment to the work of the Lord in the temple.
