“THE COMETS OF GOD-New Scientific Evidence for God: Recent archeological, geological and astronomical discoveries that shine new light on the Bible and its prophecies” by Jeffrey Goodman, Ph.D.
  • I was truly captivated by the force of your central idea (that cometary phenomena explain much of the apocalyptic literature in Scripture), the strong scholarship, and the goodness of fit, if you will, between a number of your proposals and the way scripture reads . . . after reading only one chapter of your work, I went back and reread Chapters 8 and 9 of Revelation, texts I’ve studied for almost 20 years, and found myself saying, “Of course!”  You really are onto something monumental here . . . I am deeply impressed with your work. --Clifford W. Kelly, Ph.D., Liberty University.
  • Jeffrey, I have been reading your book in small batches (sort of rationing it out!) and I want to tell you how much I enjoy it.  You have done a remarkable job …thanks for your wonderful labor of love —John S. Lewis Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Planetary Science at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory.  Lewis is recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on cosmic impact.  His book “Comet and Asteroid Impacts: Quantitative Modeling of Hazards in a Populated Earth,” is a bench mark for the field.
  •   I finished your MSS and want to commend you on your incredibly original thinking and excellent writing style . . . Your premise is probably true, that the miracles of the Bible are often the result of comets...--Tim LaHaye, Author of LEFT BEHIND series.
  • Good Reads  'It is worth reading if you have an overwhelming interest in the NT book of Revelation . . . to someone tied up in interpreting the book of Revelation it would make for stay up all night reading.' Richard Williams
  • ForeWord Reviews  Past events in the Bible often have a verifiable historical or archeological basis. Though Christian fundamentalists may recoil from scientific exploration of what they believe to be unfathomable, sacred words, some experts have presented convincing theories for reinterpretation of Biblical occurrences and predictions. Jeffrey Goodman, along with other scientists who preceded him, proposes that comets made an appearance in the Old Testament, one of which caused the Great Flood, and states that cometary activity will change the Earth throughout a protracted, devastating bombardment. Based on his definition of dire prophesy in the New Testament Book of Revelation, he has laid out a blow-by-blow description of what he anticipates will end the world that presently exists. His book addresses pertinent information lost in bad translations of original Hebrew manuscripts, clarifying key words, and demonstrating the likelihood that his astronomical explanations make more sense than other potential causes such as nuclear war…
    This astute writer knows how to present his hypothesis in a concise delivery backed by an extensive bibliography, notes, and citations. Fascinating and threatening, this text will appeal to every reader with an inquiring mind, even the old-fashioned skeptic who refuses to acknowledge newcomers on the traditional religious scene. Though intended for a general audience, “The Comets of God” will attract the traditional reader predisposed toward the Christian church and fundamental teachings...This time-intensive work is intriguing and recommended reading for anyone with an interest in linguistics and anthropology.
