Detailed Description
Astronomy is the most ancient science. Throughout all history, people have told time and found direction from the Sun, Moon and stars. This is the purpose for which the LORD created the celestial bodies - for signs and seasons, and days and years (Genesis 1:14).

Signs & Seasons is an evolution-free homeschool astronomy curriculum that teaches the traditional, historical basis for timekeeping and navigation, as understood throughout history, and also as taught in the Bible. Topics include:

  • The Phases of the Moon and the Passage of the Seasons;
  • Finding the Traditional Constellations and identifying the Visible Planets;
  • How our Calendar is based on the Sun and Moon;
  • How the times of Passover and Easter are derived from their cycles.

Signs & Seasons is lavishly illustrated, with images that depict the appearances of the night sky, to prepare you for what you can see outside on any clear night, at home or anywhere you might travel.

Learn astronomy through the quoted words of Scripture and many authors - ancient, medieval, and modern, Christian and secular alike - from Aristotle and Cicero, Augustine and Basil the Great, Martin Luther and John Calvin, to Shakespeare and Leonardo da Vinci.

Importantly, Signs & Seasons sets the record straight about supposed “pagan influences” in astronomy, and offers challenging explanations that distinguish the legitimate science of astronomy from the ancient superstition of astrology.

Signs & Seasons also includes 40 pages of Field Activities. These activities accompany each chapter to enable the student of the sky to make systematic observations of the Sun, Moon, stars, and planets. These field activities will assist in creating a field journal that enable a high school student to establish work hours toward high school credit. These activities can also be used by younger students under parental supervision.

Signs & Seasons also includes an extensive Glossary, a Biographia of Quoted Authors, and Astronomical Tables to assist the reader in finding the constellations and planets. Read Signs & Seasons and rediscover your forgotten astronomical heritage!

(Recommended ages - 13 and up but usable by all ages. Please read the FAQs.)
