Publisher Comments:

In Signs in the Sky, Adrian Gilbert builds on the quest begun in his popular The Orion Mystery with a fascinating examination of biblical prophecy.

The prophets of the ancient world, in their search for a fixed calendar on which to inscribe the dates of events far into the future, looked to the skies. In this world, the revolution of the stars and progression of the constellations of the zodiac were means of measuring the passage of time more accurate and lasting than any of man's invention. As markers on this calendar the prophets set the great monuments and buildings of their era. The astrologically aligned pyramids record the progress of the years, counting down to the end of an age. As the proverb tells is, Man fears time, but time fears the pyramid.

In a riveting archeological detective story, Adrian Gilbert takes us back — from the wisdom of the ancients through the early Christian world and the geography of the Bible — on a quest to unlock the mysteries of the prophecies of the Old and New Testaments. The constellation of Orion, the figure of man set in the stars, has now arrived at its northernmost point — a journey that has taken nearly 13,000 years. At the same time, the summer-solstice sun, in the hand of Orion, has just crossed the eastern and western sky exactly over the Egyptian Khafre pyramid. The belt of Orion has risen over the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem; and on either side of the Orion constellation seven planets of the ancients (the seven angels of prophecy) will be visible. Could this be the Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven described in the Book of Revelation? And if so, does it signify the end of the present age?

Synopsis:

Is this the beginning of the Apocalypse? <BR>In a riveting archaeological detective story, Adrian Gilbert takes us back — from the wisdom of the ancients through the secrecy of the early Christian world. Using the same techniques that unlocked the secrets of the Egyptian pyramids in The Orion Mystery, Gilbert penetrates the mysteries of prophecies set forth in the Old and New Testaments. <BR>In Signs in the Sky, Gilbert brings his acute understanding of esoteric astrology to his investigations of ancient Egypt, the pyramids, and the Bible. He explains how the constellation Orion, known to the ancients as the primary symbol for "the Son of Man in heaven," is the key to understanding many of the prophecies contained in the Book of Revelation as well as other books in the Bible. In this startlingly original book, he provides answers to some of the most profound questions of our time such as: Are we now at the end of one of history's great ages? And what does the next one hold in store? Buried within the Old and New Testaments, Gilbert has found what might be the key to our future: the signs in the sky.
