ForeWord Reviews
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.

THE CHRISTIAN POST

It has received over 10,000 hits showing that many people are interested in the subject of science and the Bible. We look forward to reading and posting your future articles.

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.

Tim LaHaye
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.

About the Author

Jeffrey Goodman received a professional degree in Geological Engineering from Colorado School of Mines, a M.A. in anthropology from the University of Arizona, a M.B.A from Columbia University Graduate School of Business, and a Ph.D. in anthropology from California Coast University. He was accredited by the former Society of Professional Archeologists from 1978 to 1987. His books, AMERICAN GENESIS and THE GENESIS MYSTERY, included accounts of his discovery of an early man site in the mountains outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. Four seasons were devoted to excavating this site, the last of which included archeologists from the University of Alberta. In part, The COMETS OF GOD tells of the linguistic and scientific discoveries Goodman made within the pages of the Bible. Goodman is the Publisher of Archeological Research Books.com

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I learned so much from it and it all makes perfect sense! It is great to finally read a logical explanation for some of the unexplained events in the Bible. The best part is that Goodman is not using science instead of supernatural, he is backing up the supernatural with science! Who knew science and religion could work together? It's great!

This is a really terrific book. Dr.Goodman clearly and concisely shows how God uses natural phenomenon to accomplish His will. I e-mailed the author and asked about Velikovsky's work in this area and he responded by saying, "Velikovsky was the first to champion the idea of the Earth and the solar system having undergone sudden and violent catastrophic changes. He was correct when he looked at comets as being important instruments of change...." A really fascinating book. If you've ever wondered why ancient man would worship little lights in the sky, you'll have your answer!!

First, I am glad to have read the book. The author has enlightened me to the make-up of comets and pointed to Scripture that supports his view that God has and will use comets in judgment against rebellious mankind. For instance, here are some verses that support his teaching (from the KJV, other versions may be clearer):

Genesis 7 [11] 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 [22] Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, [23] Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

Job 38 [29] Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
[30] The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.

Psalm 148 [4] 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.

Some things that will concern readers such as myself will be that Dr.

I agree with the author that Noah's Flood was likely caused by a comet, that other Old Testament disasters were likely caused by comets. I also agree that the Gog and Magog war is the Battle of Armageddon. I liked learning about ancient cultures that recorded details of comet impacts.

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.

Excellent resource for the serious student of Bible prophecy, especially Revelation. The science seems to be well documented and incredibly informative. This explanation makes more sense out of the Trumpets and Bowls of Revelation than any theory I have encountered (except my own which came to the same conclusions) and I have encountered many.

This book earns the author an attaboy, a slap on the back, and kudos galore. It's an easy read, but it is not a flawless read. First, the punctuation is abysmal, the writer never having mastered something as simple as the parenthetical intrusion. These intrusions obviously interrupt, right? And they are set apart from the rest of the sentence by commas, e. g.," Joe's big dog, a Great Dane, really loved to eat." All through Mr. Goodman's book the second comma, the one ending the intrusion, is left off, suggesting the author didn't feel the need to find an editor who knew how to help him present a book more intelligently. Other grammatical mistakes happen throughout, such as extra spaces between words, incomplete sentences, called fragments, and footnotes presently so sloppily at the bottom of the page that it renders the entire book a work by amateurs. This is sad, because the book is worth reading, even though there are enough silly ideas and comments to give the serious reader pause. For instance, the writer tends to swallow camels and choke on gnats. When he wants you to believe him he tends to repeat himself ad nauseum, as if that will convince the skeptic. One laughable example is the idea, which is seized desperately upon by the writer, is that the lamp that passed between the pieces of meat in Abraham's sacrifice was, you guessed it, a comet! Makes me ask just how big, or how tiny, comets can be. And wouldn't Abraham have noticed and commented on the fact that a comet approached earth, entered our atmosphere, and zoomed headlong toward the Middle East, and then charred his meat -- and himself -- to a crisp.Read more ›
