This book has quickly become one of my favorites! Reading this book has given me a much larger appreciation for temples, and the sacrifices that are made to build them. Chad Hawkins has done a wonderful job including individual facts and stories about each temple! I have also learned more about the church and members from around the world by reading this book. I will definitely keep this book in mind when giving gifts to friends and family!
This is a wonderful book although I am still in the process of reading it. In my copy there two temples so far that I know of that did not have a sketch. There were two maps for each instead of a sketch and a map. They were the Las Vegas and Birmingham temples. I like the idea of the hidden images even though some were hard to find. Hopefully the above issue can be resolved some how.
We absolutely LOVED this book. The drawings are wonderful, the information very informative. We loved the hidden pictures in each drawing! A great book for the whole family!
What a fantastic book! Chad Hawkins has spent years and years not only drawing these temples, but researching their individual histories. Each temple carries with it a powerful story with many different facts. This is a must read and a great reference for any Latter Day Saint who truly wishes to strengthen his/her testimony of the divinity of our Father in Heavens earthy home.
