The Astronomy of the Bible by E. Walter Maunder

Large book cover: The Astronomy of the Bible

The Astronomy of the Bible
by

Publisher: Richard Clay & Sons
ISBN/ASIN: B0027P88CI

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