The Witness of the Stars
by Dr. E. W. Bullinger
The Psalmist said, "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork."
E. W. Bullinger shows in this work that the statement of the Psalmist is true in far more than just a general sense. The major constellations, planets and stars are viewed as being vehicles of God's natural revelation and are examined with a view to deciphering their message to us.
Ancient astronomical investigations are considered along with those current at the time of the book's original edition, and in a unique way, Bullinger endeavors to establish how the stars themselves witness to the accuracy of prophetic truths given through God's special revelation, the Bible.
More than forty charts and celestial diagrams are reproduced to give vivid support to the claims and interpretations of the text. Numerous footnotes add Biblical and scientific facts not normally in possession of the casual Bible student.
Although the author deals with an intricate and delicate subject he does exercise careful restraint and demonstrates a considerable amount of "common sense" in the application of truth.
In a day when the eyes of Christians are being turned upward to look for His coming, The Witness of the Stars provides both information and encouragement.
