Unfortunately, modern evolutionary thinking in astronomy has caused many people to disconnect from the Bible's view of history, as they are taught that the universe is millions or even billions of years old. This book shows that the billions of evolutionary years taught in public schools are unnecessary and that one need only to look to the Creator of the Bible to explain the origin of the stars and the universe. Dr. Jason Lisle discusses and debunks popular evolutionary concepts such as the big bang and answers biblical questions like how the speed of light affects the Bible's account of history.

The Bible's mentions of astronomy are examined in this book by astronomer Edward Walter Maunder, whose work advanced the study of sunspots. This premium edition includes the original illustrations. As a professional astronomer working in a scientific environment, Maunder was also fascinated by how human understanding of astronomy improved throughout history. As the son of a Wesleyan minister, the author was raised in a Christian environment and had experience with the Bible during his youth. This book sees him revisit the Old and New Testaments to explain how astronomy was understood and used in the Biblical era. The ancient peoples witnessed and described many astronomical phenomena in their writings, and the Holy Bible is no exception. The sun and moon are frequently referred to in the scriptures, are as astronomical phenomena such as comets and meteorites. Eclipses fascinated the ancients, and various spiritual attributions for all manner of events in the sky are present in the Bible. The importance of the heavens is clear in the nativity tale of Jesus Christ, in which we hear of the Star of Bethlehem. At the time the Bible was written, the ancient peoples of the Middle East were already familiar with the constellations established by the Egyptians. As Maunder demonstrates, these would receive reference in the Bible also. Later in the book, Maunder investigates how astronomy influenced the ancient calendar and the measurement of time. The passing of the weeks and the marking of the festivals was aided by the phases of the moon and length of the day, giving astronomy a practical importance. Although working in science, the author maintained his lifelong Christian beliefs. One aim of this book is to show that religious beliefs and scientific observations of the stars can be reconciled. This edition of the text includes the crucial charts and illustrations, helping readers to understand the points raised in the text.

Excerpt from The Astronomy of the Bible: An Elementary Commentary on the Astronomical References of Holy Scripture Why should an astronomer write a commentary on the Bible? Because commentators as a rule are not astronomers, and therefore either pass over the astronomical allusions of Scripture in silence, or else annotate them in a way which, from a scientific point of view, leaves much to be desired. Astronomical allusions in the Bible, direct and indirect, are not few in number, and, in order to bring out their full significance, need to be treated astronomically. Astronomy further gives us the power of placing ourselves to some degree in the position of the patriarchs and prophets of old. We know that the same sun and moon, stars and planets, shine upon us as shone upon Abraham and Moses, David and Isaiah. We can, if we will, see the unchanging heavens with their eyes, and understand their attitude towards them. It is worth while for us so to do. For the immense advances in science, made since the Canon of Holy Scripture was closed, and especially during the last three hundred years, may enable us to realize the significance of a most remarkable fact.

Finally available, a high quality book of the original classic edition of The Astronomy of the Bible. It was previously published by other bona fide publishers, and is now, after many years, back in print. This is a new and freshly published edition of this culturally important work by E. Walter Maunder, which is now, at last, again available to you. Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Astronomy of the Bible: It will be noticed that the Classical age did not commence until about the time of the completion of the last books of the Old Testament; so we do not find any reference in Holy Scripture to the astronomical achievements of that period, amongst which the first attempts to explain the apparent motions of sun, moon, stars, and planets were the most considerable. ...We cannot for a moment expect that any [7]supernatural revelation of purely material facts would be imparted to the writers of sacred books, two or three thousand years before the progress of science had brought those facts to light, and we ought not to be surprised if expressions are occasionally used which we should not ourselves use to-day, if we were writing about the phenomena of nature from a technical point of view. ...For by these words they were taught that all the host of heaven and of earth were created things-merely 'things, ' not divinities-and not only that, but that the Creator was One God, not many gods; that there was but one law-giver; and that therefore there could be no conflict of laws. ...It was then pointed out that, so far as the narrative was concerned, there might have been a period of almost unlimited duration between its first verse and its fourth; and it was suggested that the six days of creation were six days of twenty-four hours each, in which, after some great cataclysm, 6,000 years ago, the face of the earth was renewed and replenished for the habitation of man, the preceding geological ages being left entirely unnoticed. ... Other commentators have laid stress on the truth revealed in Scripture that 'one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day, ' and have urged the argument that the six days of creation were really vast periods of time, during which the earth's geological changes and the evolution of its varied forms of life were running their course.

The origin and study of astronomy is as old as mankind. The names of constellations and stars and their meaning are older than mankind. God gave Adam the responsibility of naming the animals, but God named the stars and constellations and gave them each a meaning. God instructed the first humans in these meanings. These meanings have been preserved and transmitted from antiquity to the present for us to know and understand. Though much has been lost throughout time, much has been rediscovered. Discover the real meaning of the stars and constellations. Discover the past, present, and future. Discover the story of the Gospel in the stars.

Excerpt from Astronomy and the Bible The writer of the following pages, throughout his active life, has been a close student of nature, and the starry universe all about us has had its full share of his attention. He has gathered a fine assemblage of most entertaining facts; and the reader, whether a believer in the Bible or not, will be interested in observing that the astronomy of the Bible is far in advance of the time in which it was written, for only after some of the latest research with telescope, spectroscope, and camera, have seemingly obscure and meaningless passages of the Bible been understood. Dr. Reed has been a popular writer for magazines, as well as of books; and one of his major themes has been the astronomy of the Bible. The popularity of his astronomy magazine articles, and the urgent demand that many of them be printed over and over again, has led to the preparation of this book. Vibrant in the pages that follow is the sentiment of the inspired poet that "the heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge. There is no speech nor language; their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the sun." Ps.19: I-4.
