Book Description, Modified from Amazon:
See the interior and exterior of both the First Temple (Solomon's Temple) and Second Temple (Herod's Temple at the time of Christ). This highly detailed diagram by acclaimed Bible artist, Bill Latta, shows both Temples: The one constructed in 960 BC and the one expanded in 62 BC by King Herod the Great. Reproducible worksheets on the back for classroom use.

My Review:
Temple Cutaway Wall Chart is a 26" by 19" poster showing the exterior and interior of Solomon's Temple and Herod's Temple. It's for use in Sunday school or Bible study classes. For Solomon's Temple, the courtyard shows the temple, brazen alter, brazen sea/laver, and ten bronze basins. Labeled on the interior drawing are the golden lampstands, table of the bread of the presence, the altar of incense, the veil, and the Ark of the Covenant.

For Herod's Temple, the courtyard shows the brazen laver, altar of burnt offering, place of slaughter, temple and porch of the temple. Labeled on the interior drawing are the double-folding doors and outer veil, golden lampstand, table of showbread, golden altar of incense, the inner veil, foundation stone, and chambers of the inner sanctuary.

On the back of the poster are reproducible worksheets you can copy and hand out to class or study participants. These worksheets include a smaller, black and white version of each temple shown on the front. There's also a sheet for each temple giving further details about and Scripture references for each of the labeled objects. Between these worksheets are ten trivia Q&As about the temples.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
