Though the view of the biblical cosmos that is described in this book is not new, what is different about it in Presutta's presentation is that, rather than quoting only a verse here or a verse there to make the point, he takes a long, extensive look at a very large number of verses in the Bible that have anything to do with biblical cosmology. Through a step-by-step process of examining the relevant passages, and by using Hebrew and Greek lexicons, Presutta virtually reconstructs the biblical view of the cosmos as the ancient writers of the Bible must have perceived it. The large amount of evidence that he presents in the process also shows that the biblical view of the cosmos is consistent from Genesis to Revelation and is also consistent with what many others have said about it.

According to that biblical view of the cosmos, the earth is a flat, immovable disk, supported by pillars, and covered by the solid firmament of heaven. Presutta also shows that several puzzling verses in the Bible make sense only in the context of that view, and that the verses that Bible believers often quote in an attempt to show that the biblical cosmos conforms to modern cosmology actually conform to the above mentioned flat-earth view.

To provide a counterpart to the biblical view of the cosmos, the book also contains an introductory section that takes an informative look at the modern view of the cosmos. This section provides the reader with an effective contrast to the biblical view of the cosmos.

In an appendix, Presutta also examines the Book of Enoch, which was written within about two centuries before the birth of Christianity, and he shows that it explicitly describes many aspects of the biblical cosmos.

This is a great book for anybody wishing to look deeper into the first books of the Bible or just learn more about early Christians. It clearly goes against modern apologists who continue to come up with new translations for things that are made pretty clear once the original Hebrew or Greek are discussed.
