Item description for The Gospel in the Stars by Joseph a. Seiss...
Overview 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 comtemplated 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 the darkness might see and have hope. Drawing on scientific, historical, and Biblical sources, Seiss assembled persuasive arguments for his thesis: the gospel of Jesus Christ can be seen in the stars. This illustrated study of the heavens answers 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel In The Stars?
Over my head Mar 29, 2007
I'm a Christian and I believe God made me, the Earth and the Universe and all things are held together in His Hands. But I'm not very scientific and know very little about astronomy. So this book went right over my head and I never got passed the first chapter. But I did pass it on to my bil who knows more about it and finds it interesting. So, my rating is based on the fact that, as a novice, I couldn't get a handle on it. It didn't catch my interest. It is not based on whether Seiss is right or wrong or technically correct about his ideas.
Signs in the heavens Oct 8, 2006
I disagree with the reviewers who quote the Berean Call where other "preachers" state that we are very God as in...(54. We are 'little gods' and even part of God with all the power of God; and we are 'little messiahs,' everything that Jesus ever was." (Hinn, The Berean Call, 1992 Media Spotlight Special Report, Feb 94).
The Word of God still speaks with authority about the signs in the heavens, and that has not changed.
I believe this is a thought-provoking book that should be compared with scripture for the complete picture.
words have meanings Nov 25, 2001
Having read many books on this subject, including the book by D.James Kennedy, I consider this the best. It does in fact take into consideration the fact that the stars have moved since the ancient names were changed to the modern. Also the MIRRACLE IN STONE, BY SEISS, was in conjunction with his study of the Temple at Ein Gaihdi, which depects the ancient zodiac of about the time of the flood. The simple fact overlooked by Hunt is that in the ancient languages, the stars tell the gospel. And the original purpose of the materials he drew from were actually a study in lexiconography whose purpose was to prove the existence of an original language on earth,,,and only happened to lead to the larger realization that the mysteries were a corruption of the ancient zodiac, and not as is commonly believed, that christianity drew on mystery sources. This is a must read for the Christian.....
The most highly trusted and authoritative source.... Jul 29, 2001
This book is certainly the most authoritative and trusted source on the subject of Biblical Astronomy. Having owned more than one copy of this text, as well as multiple copies of other manuscripts of this type(and having a background of Theological study), I can say without a doubt that this book is an absolute MUST HAVE for anyone interested in Biblical Astronomy.
The Gospel In The Stars Jan 1, 2001
I agree with Dave Hunt, perhaps the Charles Spurgeon of our day, who wrote in his May, 1989 issue of The Berean Call about "The Gospel of the Stars" by Charles Seiss. Hunt wrote that books such as this set aside sound doctrine in favor of myths. "Seiss' book asserts that the signs of the zodiac were originally designed by God to communicate the 'gospel'; that this 'Gospel in the Stars' was known to those living before the flood; that it was later corrupted into asrology; and that the alleged recovery of the 'gospel interpretation' of the zodiac is a great witness to God and His Word." However, Hunt goes on to say that "not one shred of historical evidence can be offered in support of this theory. It is based not upon fact but speculation. Seiss even admits that the insights leading to his thesis came 'in connection with his studies of the marvelous wisdom embodied in the Great Pyramid at El Giza' (p5). The alleged 'Gospel in the Stars' is simply a "Christian' interpretation of astrology and occultism, in the same class as pyramidology--and equally dangerous." For more information on this book, and on E.W. Bullinger's "Witness of the Stars" one should request a reprint of Hunt's May, 1989 article from The Berean Call. Both Seiss and Bullinger are spreading mythology under the guise of Biblical Christianity. James Beeson
