Recreations in Astronomy
by Henry White Warren
Publisher: Project Gutenberg
This book has been written not only to reveal some of the highest achievements of the human mind, but also to let the heavens declare the glory of the Divine Mind. In the author's judgment, there is no gulf that separates science and religion, nor any conflict where they stand together.

This review presents a brief summary of a few of the highlights of HST discoveries, discusses their physical implications, and identifies unsolved problems. A broad range of topics is covered, from our own solar system to cosmology.

Why should an astronomer write a commentary on the Bible? Because commentators are not astronomers, and therefore either pass over the astronomical allusions of Scripture in silence, or else annotate them in a way which leaves much to be desired.
