Translated by Robin Alexander

No one has written about the Sun like this! It is neither scientific in the usual sense, nor religious from an establishment view. Georg Blattmann integrates these disciplines in a form that may annoy, stimulate, anger, or cause wonder in the reader.

Beginning with simple observations of the Sun and our own feelings for its life-giving power, the author examines its corona, temperature, and surface to arrive at startling conclusions about the inside of the Sun. He shows it as something "completely different."

Using projective geometry, he provides a basis for a mathematical and physical understanding of the Sun. This enables us without too much difficulty to enter the spiritual realities connected with the Sun. And, using examples from the history of art, from astrophysics, and from the Gospels of the Bible, Blattmann shows the hidden connection between the Sun and the Christ.
