The Witness of the Stars: The Twelve Star Signs of the Heavens and Their Role in the Biblical Lore, the Psalms, and God's Promise to Christians (Hardcover)
The Witness of the Stars stands as one of the best explanations of the constellations in the context of Biblical wisdom. This edition includes all of E. W. Bullingers original charts and illustrations of the heavens above. To compose this book, E. W. Bullinger used his Biblical scholarship alongside research of the origins of the astronomical constellations. He demonstrates, through a close reading of the Old and New Testaments, how each of the star signs relates to the Bibles stories. Gradually, it is revealed how God makes himself known to us through the Bibles astronomy. The symbolism of the star signs are shown as important in the Bible. Their presence in verse relates not simply to their appearances, such as Libras scales or Aries as a ram, but also the way in which Biblical figures behave after looking at the heavens for guidance. The Book of Job is highlighted by Bullinger for being significantly influenced by the stars.
