A Review of The Constellation of Omens

I originally intended to review this book for my March review Month, but I changed my mind and decided to save until April; I felt it was an appropriate post for Easter weekend.


My review of The Constellation of Omens by Deborah Simpson:
The Constellation of Omens by Deborah Simpson is about belief and faith, both the author’s and those that believe in God, delving into subjects often untouched in today’s world.  It is an absorbing look at the author’s interpretation of Bible prophecy.

The Constellation of Omens is a stark, frank look at the Apocalypse and End of Days prophecies, shown through the visionary words of the author.  Deborah Simpson explores very relevant issues of the human race, as well as the essence of true hope and faith.

“Antediluvian scripture, as written by the greats of ancient province, had the great ability to prophesize and forewarn because much of the infections of modern civilization were not in existence.”

Some might find the book controversial, but the themes the author discusses within the pages are intriguing and powerful.  She addresses her points in an edifying and laudable manner; opening more than one stimulating line of thought.  The tone of the book does ramble a bit, skipping about from topic to topic; more linear structure would have benefitted the book’s cohesion.  Still, the book is a challenging and stirring read.
