Descripción del producto
I've always looked forward to the "new earth." This enjoyable book makes me look forward to the "new heavens" more than ever. For this I'm deeply thankful! * -Kevin Flannery, senior pastor, Church of the Saviour * This book is a primer on the current best science on the universe. It illumines our thinking, helps us grasp our Creator's comets, stars, and meteors, and shows us how we may better love God, the scientific enterprise, and the detailed wonders of the heavens and earth that this enterprise reveals. * -Robert G. Duffett, president, Eastern University * This book is a celebration of wonder. In plain, accessible language, Bradstreet and Rabey show us how beautiful and mysterious the universe is. This book helps us love the artistry of our great cosmic canvas. * -Dean Nelson, coauthor, Quantum Leap: How John Polkinghorne Found God in Science and Religion * This book will capture the imagination of all who hunger to see God's majesty, creativity, power, and love with fresh eyes. Read this book and you'll never see the heavens the same way. * -Terry Linhart, author and professor of Christian ministries, Bethel College * We live in a time when cosmologist Sean Carroll claims that "the evidence is pretty incontrovertible" for atheism. This book reminds us that for those who ask why there's any beauty in the universe, the heavens still declare the glory of God. * -Douglas LeBlanc, author, Tithing: Test Me in This * This book combines an engaging and informed romp through the cosmos with a deep conviction that the heavens declare the glory of God. Bradstreet and Rabey make the case that we live on a privileged planet in a remarkably designed universe. * -Karl Giberson, scholar-in-residence in science and religion, Stonehill College * Too many people see science and faith in conflict. Leading astronomer David Bradstreet explodes that myth in this outstanding, highly readable book that shows how science has enriched his faith and how Christian faith has enriched science. * -David Wilkinson, author and professor of theology and religion, Durham University * A close read of this inviting book will open your mind to see the amazing work of God in an amazingly massive universe. You'll be dually awed by the majesty of creation and the action of the Creator. * -Andrew Root, Carrie Olson Baalson Professor of Youth and Family Ministry, Luther Seminary * A sweeping account of how the heavens and heaven go hand in hand. Even if you don't completely accept the authors' theological worldview, you will encounter many intriguing insights you won't find expressed so clearly elsewhere. * -Owen Gingerich, professor emeritus of astronomy and of the history of science, Harvard University * This book declares the glory of God and invites us to see in the heavens his handiwork. This is a great resource for anyone who wants to help young people see that science and faith can share the same space! * -Dr. Duffy Robbins, professor of youth ministry, Eastern University * This book is an engaging and personal tour of the universe from a respected astronomer who also loves the Bible. Come along for the ride! * -Deborah Haarsma, astronomer and president of BioLogos * Astronomy elicits awe and wonder from those who gaze into the vastness of the universe. Religion elicits even greater awe and wonder of the infinite Creator of such vastness. This book beautifully balances both experiences of wonder. * -John Michael Talbot, bestselling musician and author *

The heavens are beckoning us, telling us that this wonderful, mind-boggling cosmic display is indeed the work of the creator. And now, using rovers and satellites, we're venturing further out into the vastness of space than ever before. In Star Struck, Christian astronomer David Bradstreet and writer Steve Rabey take readers on a guided tour of the biggest story ever, offering both intriguing science lessons and powerful spiritual insights: As we discover more about cosmos, we understand more about the character of our Creator; The more we see the vastness and complexity of the universe, the more we experience awe, wonder, praise, gratitude and humility; Hundreds of Christian astronomers blaze the way into deep exploration of the universe today, discovering and proving God's work in the heavens. Combining a respect and admiration for mainstream astronomy with a zeal for uncovering new details about God's celestial handiwork at its core, this book about stars, planets, asteroids, nebulae, comets, dark matter, and the other fingerprints of God will tell you that all of the worlds around you are God's and this world is his home for you.Ver Descripción del producto

Dr. Bradstreet’s “Star Struck” rekindles my growing-up-geek memories, things I haven’t thought about in decades. He restores my scientific wonder and worship of the creator. His book reads fast, never heavy or heavy-handed. I love the style of current scientific understanding and personal biography intertwined with pop culture and biblical references. I appreciate how he balances faith in God and pursuit of science. He’s love of exploring God’s divinely artistic work is compelling. Next I plan to get outside with my daughter’s abandoned Meade telescope and set aside the next cold clear winter night to sit in the hot tub and count meteors and satellites.
From the Big Bang to binary stars and beyond, the authors cover a lot of ground but do so in a way that makes the rich history and often complicated science of astronomy approachable and easy to understand. If you know nothing about the heavens, this is a wonderful introduction. If you are a veteran astronomer, Star Struck can rekindle your passion and remind you of the true glory that upholds it all.
The authors do a masterful job in taking an interdisciplinary approach to astronomy and creatively relate the science to familiar cultural icons of our time. The heavens will certainly seem more real and more relevant to you than you ever thought possible.
Dr. Bradstreet writes with a pastoral heart. After four decades of studying astronomy, he is as eager to be studying the heavens as he was as a child. He is a compassionate teacher and loves his students and those qualities sparkle through the pages of Star Struck like stars glistening in the trees, giving the book a very warm and personal atmosphere. It is not a science text talking down to its readers, but a great story in and of itself that ends up really as one of the truest reflections of heavenly glory I have ever read.
The authors reflect a true Christ-like candor from start to finish. It is an very encouraging and delightful read that directs our attention to how Christ Jesus and a careful study astronomy are fully compatible. I highly recommend it.
After reading four memoirs by astronauts who walked on the moon, I was delighted to discover "Star Struck" and quickly purchased several copies for friends. Reading his personal reflections within this packed journey through the "wonders of our cosmos" is akin to sitting in on Professor Bradstreet's astronomy classes at Eastern University in PA. The humor, intelligence, and clear teaching of Dave Bradstreet and Steve Rabey, an author and theologian, are wonderfully reflected within the pages of this enthralling and profound book -- you'll love it, cover to cover!
This timely book reveals discoveries about the universe made through the ages; where God has allowed humans a small peek into the mysteries of His cosmos. Your faith will strengthen at the scope of revelations from early Babylonians and Greeks all the way up to today's fascinating space explorations. The knowledge that humans have about our vast universe and places we have never been is simply amazing. Even more amazing is the Creator and Sustainer behind it all. The book is especially helpful for amateur astronomers who also want some history of cosmology, teens, middle schoolers, adults who want to dramatically expand their views on God and the universe, and even elderly grandmas like me who matured with the space age and just like to know things!
