Fall is finally here and to celebrate the cooler weather, we’re talking about a really cool book!  To get ready for this month’s party, the Moms of Master Books and their kids have spent September getting to know the universe with the help of  The New Astronomy Book.
With Creation itself as a launch point, we’ve been exploring the mysteries and marvels of space. From constellations, to quasars and everything in between, the universe is an amazing declaration of the glory and power of God! Beautiful and breathtaking in its scale, the vast expanse of the heavens is something we struggle to study, understand, or even comprehend in terms of its purpose and size.
In The New Astronomy Book, you’ll learn how to observe the heavens through a Biblical lens.  Up-to-date astronomical data and details on recent discoveries will help you to learn about the dynamics of planets, stars, galaxies. What we know pales in comparison to the full glory of God’s Creation as is evidenced by the fact that we’re still working so hard to learn more about planets, moons, and comets within our own solar system.
