5.0 out of 5 starsAnswers My Life Long Questions!
Reviewed in the United States on October 26, 2017
While In high school I had the question "What does it all mean?" I pictured the universe when asking this question. After graduating high school I found the Mormon Church, received a testimony and my question began to be answered. I study the mysteries of God in the scriptures, I took astronomy in college, and I keep up with the pictures of the Hubble telescope. This book does a wonderful job of bringing the scriptures, the quotes from past prophets, and modern day astronomy together in a way that exceeded all my expectations in finding the answers to my life long question...What does it all mean?
Well, what can I say about a book that uses very dated science, should have been a 2 page blog post on some speculative fantasy LDS theology website where potentially sarcastic theories are written as real, is repetitive and basically a silly theory to think that one can grasp the vastness of God and his place in all existence, by limited him to our puny Galaxy. I was very surprised anyone would even publish this book, but looking at the cover it was self published! That alone is a pretty good sign about the quality of the content.
Although some astronomers evidently not happy with the author's ideas on creation, the truth is they do not even agree with themselves on many things.
I really liked his ideas and they were presented in a very logical manner. It was actually quite easy reading considering the fact it is an astronomical discussion, and I agree that much of what he says is quite possible. Is it going to affect my testimony if proven wrong? No! But it does seem logical.
4.0 out of 5 starsThis book was a pretty good read

This book was a pretty good read. I think that he has a very good hypothesis of how he thinks the galaxy is set up. It definitely makes you think. However I feel he didn't really make it very scientific, it was more he just interpreted some scriptures and wrote down his interpretations of them. The scientific evidence he did have was very out of date. That being said he had an interesting idea, and since the lord hasn't revealed the way it works we can't that its not true. Worth reading once.
5.0 out of 5 starsMind blowing. Thought provoking.

The author declares that this book is not to be seen absolute truth. A honest declaration.
The book is well written and clever. It may be not accurate, but it certainly makes you see God in a different light. For example, it portrays God as a person, rather than a being who sits on the cloud and so on.
Take a sample and read it, the buy it if I were you.
