Reviews - What do customers think about Witness Of The Stars?
Whew! What a mindfull! Oct 25, 2005
Reading this book through was a chore that put me to sleep any number of times. Granted, I fall asleep easily, so this should not reflect on the excellent quality of the information contained. The writing style is somewhat out of date, and the author's tendency to break into preaching or praise tended to be distracting.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what God originally intended for constellations and stars to mean. There is a ton of information here, symbology, astronomy, and theology.
Cannot share the same Enthusiasm Aug 16, 2005
I bought this book a number of years ago for apologetics purposes-- While I would agree with other reviewers that it holds a high view of Scripture, and the book definitely represents a lot of research, I think that the approach to symbology used here can be problematic. The entire book is a study of constellations, and how they display the Gospel in the Stars. While this is an interesting study I think there a oouple of underlying problems with this approach. 1. Constellations and star names are simply assignments that man has assigned to stars. Usually pagan cultures in association with their pagan mythology. Although this does not completely undermine such a study it does call it into question. 2. A second more serious problem is the same problem which underlies numerology and other allegorical approaches-- they can often be made to say anything the author even while at the same time appearing scholarly. Those looking for apologetics in the cosmos should consider investigating the "anthropic principle" which tracks evidence of God's design of the universe. One such book would be "Show me God" by Fred Hereen. In terms of our faith, In my opinion, God's Word itself furnishes a lifetime of study without engaging in speculation of symbols which we really can't prove one way or the other.
The Heavens Declare the Glory of God! May 10, 2005
How thrilling it was to discover this site had 'The Witness of the Stars,' available for review. Published posthumously, the work displays the integrity of E.W. Bullinger's efforts to apply several major disciplines of scholarship as he introduces this edifying unveiling of God's Glory proclaimed across the sky. Mr. Bullinger entered the Lord's presence nearly a century ago in 1913!
'The Witness of the Stars,' provides scholastic, historical, and Biblical insight into God's own testimony as to the past, present and future of mankind. What a wind of refreshment in a world seemingly helpless and out of control.
A first mention of the thesis that God has written the Gospel in the Stars was introduced to this reviewer while in Bible School by since graduated Evangelist Lester Roloff. Mr. Roloff had been inspired to examine this field partly because, as a traveling evangelist, he actually flew his own plane from meeting to meeting. He testified to ever being humbled during night flights across the earth. Having been introduced through Scripture's own declarations concerning God's setting the Heavens to declare His Glory, Psalm 19:1, Mr. Roloff went on to pen his findings.
And then how encouraging to read the reviews already given. Only the first handful of entries were able to be perused, yet, they proved the depths discerned on a mere first reading of 'Witness.' This book is a must purchase for any seeking truth.
One reading simply whets the appetite to discover and plumb the depths of Mr. Bullinger's myriad offerings.
Kudos to this site for making this book on eternal truth available to the world. Salutations to all in the Lord that have confirmed one's own impressions were in perspective.
To God be the Glory!

The Witness of the Stars May 1, 2002
This is one of the best works available on Biblical Astronomy. I have been a student of Biblical Astronomy for over 25 years. This is the book that first got me interested in the field. It is very concise in its Biblical interpretations of the constellations and star names. The book is also very informative as to where the constellation pictures came from. The Witness of the Stars is a masterpiece that brings ancient light to a new generation. I am now a full time Biblical Astronomer and have myself written a book on the subject which concerns recent celestial events. I would not have had a clue of where to begin if it were not for this work by E.W. Bullinger.
Eye-opening Jan 16, 2000
As we started our study of space with our kids a friend brought us this book to use. It is so refreshing to read an alternative, Godly view versus what we are force-fed in schools and society. This books helps put God back in knowledge. We are currently ordering our own copy.
