Past events in the Bible often have a verifiable historical or archeological basis. Though Christian fundamentalists may recoil from scientific exploration of what they believe to be unfathomable, sacred words, some experts have presented convincing theories for reinterpretation of Biblical occurrences and predictions. Jeffrey Goodman, along with other scientists who preceded him, proposes that comets made an appearance in the Old Testament, one of which caused the Great Flood...His book addresses pertinent information lost in bad translations of original Hebrew manuscripts, clarifying key words, and demonstrating the likelihood that his astronomical explanations make more sense than other potential causes such as nuclear war.
to someone tied up in interpreting the book of Revelation it would make for stay up all night reading.

I was truly captivated by the force of your central idea (that cometary phenomena explain much of the apocalyptic literature in Scripture), the strong scholarship, and the goodness of fit, if you will, between a number of your proposals and the way scripture reads . . . after reading only one chapter of your work, I went back and reread Chapters 8 and 9 of Revelation, texts Ive studied for almost 20 years, and found myself saying Of course! You really are onto something monumental here...I am deeply impressed with your work.
I finished your MSS and want to commend you on your incredibly original thinking and excellent writing style… Your premise is probably true, that the miracles of the Bible are often the result of comets.

Genesis 7  In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Job 38  Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,  Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
Job 38  Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
 The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
Psalm 148  Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
From these and other verses, Dr. Goodman uses word studies and scientific evidence to show that some of what is being referred to is comets. He builds a credible case that comets made of frozen water, gases and other material are in a storehouse at the edge of the solar system now known as the Oort Cloud. From this "storehouse" God summons comets as messengers of judgment in His "day of battle and war" (Job 38:23).
Dr. Goodman is to be commended for study he has done to reveal this and other information contained in his book. However, at this writing other reviewers have offered no critical observations. This I would now like to do.

However, I disagree that the Rev. 13 empire will be the Revived Roman Empire, and I disagree that most of the trumpets and bowls in Revelation describe comet impacts. Some do, most do not. He also does not see nuclear war and ignores statements in the verses that contradict his belief, such as in Joel 2, where he says Joel's army is comets. But it says they "leap over mountain tops" which comets do not do, but missiles and rockets do (see Discoveries in Bible Prophecy, by Michael D. Fortner).
I took off one-half star for taking things too far, and one-half star for poor writing. I am also a nonfiction writer, and would give the writing a C- . It should be rewritten to consolidate the information instead of spreading it out through many chapters. You can read about Noah's Flood in detail in several chapters, for example. He should also condense it because he repeats things a lot and it makes it way too long and repetitive.

Good read. Not complete in his assumptions. He takes many verses and squeezes them a little to hard. Still a good book. Many ideas I had never considered.Published 22 months ago by S. Moore
Excellent and very informing. Exciting to read the scientific findings which are being revealed and to know that much of the
bible is being proven
Though I find his findings intreaging and certainly plausible he does not maintain the biblical view of a young earth.Published on April 28, 2014 by William Sutter
