I loved what I thought the concept of this book was which is taking a temple and investigating how it uniquely uses symbolism. While it does this to some degree, it did it in a very round-about fashion. I think this is partly because the author didn't want to force feed certain interpretations.

In this photo essay, Hansen discusses the exterior symbols on 11 LDS temples and compares them to passages in the Book of Mormon in an attempt to help readers better understand the symbolism of temples and the ordinances performed therein, particularly the endowment ceremony. The photographs in this book are stunning; the writing wasn't quite as impressive.

by Gerald E. Hansen, Val Brinkerhoff. This book was well written. My husband and I enjoyed how the scriptures were related to the temple. This was given to us as a gift and we were a little hesitant because we didn't want to focus too much on the outside of the temple. We were pleased to find that the book dealt with the doctoral aspect of the commandments. By Marjorie, Submitted on 2015-02-25. Next to Temples of the Most High I rate this book the best.

Gerald E. helps us see that both LDS temples and the Book of Mormon have symbols and "voices" that you may never have noticed before. Both books and buildings have voices. But rather than using the letters of an alphabet, buildings use towers and spires, columns and buttresses, mosaics and paintings, glass and geometric figures, and statues and friezes to speak volumes. However, the message of a building can often be difficult for most of us to recognize. For Latter-day Saints, temples are the most important and symbolic buildings in existence. Through temples, the unique doctrines of the restored gospel are communicated.

The symbols in the temple are left to our own interpretation, with help from the Spirit. But occasionally there are special symbols incorporated into the exterior design of each edifice that have traditional, historical meaning- symbols that, once understood, can enhance our spiritual experience during our temple visits. Here are just a few on the Salt Lake Temple.
