Psalm 50:6 tells us that even the heavens proclaim God’s righteousness. Could it be that what the heavens communicate is far more glorious, far more intimate than what the casual observer has ever dreamed? The Stars Speak is a welcome return to the central theme of the heavens and how they declare God’s glory. From asteroids to the star of Bethlehem, Custer reveals not only the Creator’s grand and masterful designs but also His matchless and loving condescension. The book contains lots of excellent photos and drawings, a planetary fact sheet, a concordance of astronomy in the Bible, an index to the constellations, and a topical index.
Stewart Custer received a BA and MA in Bible and a PhD in Greek text from Bob Jones University. He began teaching at BJU in 1955 as a graduate assistant in Greek. Besides teaching biblical theology, methods of bible exposition, and advanced Greek courses at BJU, Custer was the director of the university’s planetarium and produced programs for public viewing. He was chairman of the division of Bible and editor of Biblical Viewpoint, the journal of BJU’s School of Religion, until his retirement. Custer has been in demand as an expository preacher, visiting many churches to present a series of expositions on a single book of Scripture, or to speak on specific topics such as the fallacies of evolution or the inspiration of the Bible. He currently serves as the pastor emeritus of Trinity Bible Church in Greer, South Carolina.
