    The Gospel in the Stars

    Discover how the night sky reveals the presence and majesty of God--and always has

    The ancient wise men from the East read the skies and journeyed to worship the Christ. Do the heavens that reveal God’s glory also reveal his plan of salvation? Yes, says Joseph A. Seiss, who contemplated the strange figures of the zodiac and studied the writings of astronomers through the ages.

    After extensive research, Seiss looked into the night and became convinced that God had etched his good news there, so that people in darkness might see and have hope. Drawing upon scientific, historical, and biblical sources, Seiss assembles persuasive arguments supporting his thesis that the gospel of Jesus Christ can be seen in the stars. This illustrated study of the heavens confronts the false teachings of astrology to reveal celestial players acting out the epic drama of creation and revelation: the virgin, the coming one, the scales of justice, the toiling deceiver, the scorpion, the ram, and the lion. Popular since its first publication in 1882, The Gospel in the Stars continues to illuminate discussions of the heavens, the gospel, and the careful hand of the Creator who intertwined the two.
