Dr.Werner Gitt weaves an amazing amount of information in Stars and their Purpose - Understanding the Origin of Earth's "Nightlights". My first impression of this book was that it is geared for anyone interested in the stars, not just beginner astronomers but also backyard enthusiasts.
However there is so much more in Stars and their Purpose!
The introduction reminds us that Psalm 19:1-6 starts with: The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands...
Exploring the origin of our Universe from the "Big Bang theory" through Biblical Creationism, Dr. Gitt demonstrates his remarkable understanding of our universe. Using Old and New Testament passages, he clearly explains the order of the movement of planetary systems.
I totally immersed myself in the names of star systems, distant galaxies and black holes including the perfect balance of Earth, and the moon and sun system.
Dr. Gitt goes on to show this incredible star system could only have been created by a Supreme Being and clearly not just by accident!
This is truly a family orientated book and a perfect answer to the many questions younger family members are certain to ask about the stars, constellations, high tides and their particular effects upon the land.
Very well written, difficult to put down and extremely interesting, this book is translated from German into English by Professor Jaap Kies, Cape Town, South Africa.
A great addition to any family library, this one is a perfect 5 stars!
