Biblical Astronomy Book Restores Lost Traditions christian
you know that the equinox is actually part of the LORD’s created order,
a seasonal signpost for measuring time over the span of the year? Why
isn’t this taught by secular education and pop media, which focus
instead on evolutionary theories? Many such topics are finally
explained in “Signs & Seasons” by Jay Ryan, newly published by
Fourth Day Press.
In “Signs & Seasons,” Ryan explains that the Sun, Moon and stars
were created for the purpose of measuring time…”for signs and for
seasons, and for days and years.” (Genesis 1:14). For centuries, the
God-given lights in the sky were used in this way, as did the Founding
Fathers of the United States. Somewhere down the line, our connection
to the “forgotten sky” was broken.
“Very few people today understand why the days grow longer and shorter
over the span of the year,” says Ryan. “More people have heard of
‘black holes’ than understand how the seasons change.”
It was for such reasons that Ryan wrote “Signs & Seasons,” to help
our generation reclaim its lost astronomical heritage. Lavishly
illustrated with over 400 images, “Signs & Seasons” shows the
reader what to look for in the sky.
Most importantly, “Signs & Seasons” is created to the glory of God,
with ample quotations from Scripture. Many other historical sources are
also quoted, literary and scientific, to illustrate the extensive
astronomical tradition throughout western history.
“Signs & Seasons” shows the astronomical elements behind Biblical
feasts, how Passover and Easter and calculated from the cycles of the
Sun and Moon. “Signs & Seasons” also debunks popular misconceptions
about astrology, demonstrating how this ancient superstition has stolen
and distorted elements from legitimate science.
Though created as a homeschool curriculum, “Signs & Seasons” is
very useful to adults seeking to better understand this formerly
well-known science and glorify the Creator who placed such a wonderful
order over our heads.
Published by Fourth Day Press, “Signs & Seasons” is available
through many book sellers. “Signs & Seasons” can also be directly
