Meant as a companion book to The Created Cosmos: What the Bible Reveals About Astronomy, The Expanse of Heaven: Where Creation & Astronomy Intersect, picks up where that book left off. Whereas the previous book was a discussion of all biblical passages that touch on astronomical phenomena, this new book is an application of the biblical model of creation to the science of astronomy. It begins with the history of astronomy, moves on to the appearance of the sky, a survey of the solar system, and stellar, and galactic astronomy, before finishing with modern cosmology.
The Bible doesn’t provide us a lot of technical details about the contents in the expanse of heaven above our heads, but professional astronomer Dr. Danny Faulkner in this book systematically explains what we do know using our God-given urge to investigate. You will be enthralled with this must-read book as you explore the wonders of God’s creation and grapple with understanding the technicalities through the lens of Scripture.
