“The Witness of the Stars,” by E. W. Bullinger, is one of the best works available on Biblical astronomy. Bullinger is very concise in his Biblical interpretations of constellations and star names. His book is very informative as to where the constellation pictures came from—a masterpiece that brings ancient light to a new generation. In addition to teaching the constellations, Bullinger’s book gives insights that build faith in God. The fact that most of the stars ancient names can be found and were used in the Bible to convey messages in one word adds even more credence to the truth of God’s Word and that fact that God is still in control. The “witness of the stars” as explained in this book may well be a fulfillment of that passage in Romans 16 where Paul states that God has revealed the gospel to all nations. For centuries, men have looked to the stars for navigation and signs for successful farming. By showing the Biblical symbolism of the constellations, Bullinger, a respected Bible scholar, shows how the stars are also God’s blackboard in the sky. Readers who desire untouched evidence of God will find it in this historical account in the stars from ancient civilizations on the message God sent back then to us. “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” (Psalms 147:4) The stars reveal God’s glory, His power, and His truth.

Building upon ancient astronomical sources and current scientific data, E.W. Bullinger displays how the constellations bear witness to the accuracy of biblical prophetic truths. Numerous celestial charts and diagrams are provided to lend vivid support to his conclusions. With the psalmist, one discovers that "the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork," thus encouraging Bible students to look upward for the coming of Christ.
Dr. Bullinger takes Psalm 19 and, using it as a base, expands the understanding of astronomy to include confirmation of God's word. This book is of value to the advanced student of Christian evidences, and for the average Christian it will give greater appreciation for God’s handiwork in the heavens.About the Author:
