Description:
These are the notes that have grown out of an introductory graduate course the author have given for the past few years at the IfA. They are meant to be a 'primer' for students embarking on a Ph.D. in astronomy. The level is somewhat shallower than standard textbook courses, but quite a broad range of material is covered.

by - Richard Clay & Sons
Why should an astronomer write a commentary on the Bible? Because commentators are not astronomers, and therefore either pass over the astronomical allusions of Scripture in silence, or else annotate them in a way which leaves much to be desired.
