So fun
Review by Jessie
This is so fun. I would've loved to be able to have a year of astronomy in school. There is so much practical usage with this book on how to actually study the sky and use telescopes and view eclipses and take photos, etc. I haven't read every word but have skimmed through the entire thing and you don't see any mentions of billions of years. It doesn't seem to have scripture or biblical references throughout, but it does have a mention in Job of Orion and the author using the last page to give God credit. I love it and will enjoy learning alongside my child. I recommend.
Wonderful resource for astronomy
Review by Heather
I bought this book based on the beautiful pictures inside, but it turned out to be a wonderful resource full of information from a biblical perspective. The included planisphere was an added bonus!
Mesmerizing photos of our universe
Review by DW
We used this book as part of our high schooler’s Astronomy course. This book was absolutely beautiful with so much depth and clarity on our world and our universe. Always pointing back to the One who created it. Absolutely recommend this book and Astronomy course through Master Books! We’re back for a second year of Science we loved them so much!
Review by Holllie
This book is beautiful! Not only that, but full of great information. We all enjoyed hearing about the things our son was learning. He loved this science! Was a nice break from the more rigorous lab sciences. Will definitely be keeping this on our shelf!
Absolutely beautiful

Love it so much
Review by Pamela
I love this book so much. We have a telescope to it has been wonderful to have and learn more about how to use it. So well written and the pictures are beautiful. It has so much information in it and I am so glad that we decided to do this class. This book will be used over and over in our home.
Truly amazing!
Review by Essie
I love the resources we have from Dr. Lisle and this book is no exception! Most books out there on outer space are written from an evolutionary perspective and so I'm very thankful for Christian scientists who put out work that actually glorify God. This book is not to be missed! I love having it in our home library!
MB Does It Again!
Review by Kelley
MB's textbooks offer terrific value, and this is no exception. Hardbound, glossy pages, beautiful full-color photos, illustrations, and charts plus the Planisphere. And a Christian perspective I trust. All this at a great price. Wow, MB!
Fell in love with Astronomy
Review by Kari
My daughter was hesitant in wanting to study Astronomy this year. It only took a few lessons and she fell head over heels in love with Astronomy. Thank you MasterBooks. This curriculum is gorgeous and so well done.
Amazing Resource
Review by Kristi
I bought this as part of a curriculum set, but oh my, so much information!! It is very accessibly organized, but not for the youngest learners as the concepts would be beyond them. Excellent resource for upper elementary to adult. Additionally, it is just simply a BEAUTIFUL book. Don't miss it!!
