Book Review: The Great Christ Comet by Nicholl


I found this book to be fascinating! I was surprised by the great detail of science that was involved but it just made it more interesting. To be honest, I didn't understand all of the astronomy but it is necessary for the reader who does understand this type of intellectual study. Either way I enjoyed it.

For the lay reader, this book will inspire you toward worshiping our Savior. If this book is accurate, the fact that God lined up every detail of the Heavens to orchestrate this world changing event, the birth of the Savior, is astonishing!

The book details Scriptures that highlight this event and addresses it carefully considering records of astrological events during this same time period. The book even includes beautiful pictures of comets that were captured through time. It also compares other theories of this great star. It is quite beautiful to study.

The fact that through this comet God was already reconciling those who would be His to Himself by showing Himself to the lowly shepherds and catching the attention of the gentile magi. Addressing the Scriptures of a destroyer at the virgin birth all played out on the stage of the sky. It truly is amazing to think of.  This book is a great read in considering the great sovereignty of God.

One thing this book brought me was a renewed sense of wonder at God's splendor in all of creation. In our modern day of lights, I often forget about the stars. This renewed a sense of reminding me of their presence and the splendor of God's glory they declare.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

You can get a copy of this book from Amazon here.
