In "Signs in the Sky", Adrian Gilbert builds on the quest begun in his popular The Orion Mystery with a fascinating examination of biblical prophecy.

The prophets of the ancient world, in their search for a fixed calendar on which to inscribe the dates of events far into the future, looked to the skies. In this world, the revolution of the stars and progression of the constellations of the zodiac were means of measuring the passage of time more accurate and lasting than any of man's invention. As markers on this calendar the prophets set the great monuments and buildings of their era. The astrologically aligned pyramids record the progress of the years, counting down to the end of an age. As the proverb tells is", Man fears time, but time fears the pyramid".

In a riveting archeological detective story, Adrian Gilbert takes us back -- from the wisdom of the ancients through the early Christian world and the geography of the Bible -- on a quest to unlock the mysteries of the prophecies of the Old and New Testaments. The constellation of Orion, the figure of man set in the stars, has now arrived at its northernmost point -- a journey that has taken nearly 13,000 years. At the same time, the summer-solstice sun, in the hand of Orion, has just crossed the eastern and western sky exactly over the Egyptian Khafre pyramid. The belt of Orion has risen over the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem; and on either side of the Orion constellation seven planets of the ancients (the seven angels of prophecy) will be visible. Could this be the Sign of the Son of Man in Heaven described in the Book of Revelation? And if so, does it signify the end of the present age?
