Is this the beginning of the Apocalypse? In a riveting archaeological detective story, Adrian Gilbert takes us back -- from the wisdom of the ancients through the secrecy of the early Christian world. Using the same techniques that unlocked the secrets of the Egyptian pyramids in The Orion Mystery, Gilbert penetrates the mysteries of prophecies set forth in the Old and New Testaments. In Signs in the Sky, Gilbert brings his acute understanding of esoteric astrology to his investigations of ancient Egypt, the pyramids, and the Bible. He explains how the constellation Orion, known to the ancients as the primary symbol for "the Son of Man in heaven," is the key to understanding many of the prophecies contained in the Book of Revelation as well as other books in the Bible. In this startlingly original book, he provides answers to some of the most profound questions of our time such as: Are we now at the end of one of history's great ages? And what does the next one hold in store? Buried within the Old and New Testaments, Gilbert has found what might be the key to our future: the signs in the sky. From the Trade Paperback edition.
