The Forgotten Heavens:
Six Essays on Cosmology
cos-mol-o-gy [koz·mol·uh·jee] –noun
1. the branch of philosophy dealing with the origin and general structure of the universe, which attempts to establish a framework that integrates time, space, the planets, stars, and other celestial phenomena.
Our modern cosmology suggests that the universe can be explained through astronomy and mathematics. But this seems far too simplistic, not to mention rather dull. Are stars angels? Do satyrs truly exist? What does a seraph look like? Can demons tell the future?
What does God's creation contain beyond the visible realm? We are not living
in a world that can be easily dissected in a laboratory. Our universe is filled with intelligence and life, and the creativity behind it can only be understood fully through the Creator. As you read these essays, sit back and enjoy learning a few things you never heard about in Sunday school.
