The Bible is the world’s best selling book of all time, and yet, some of the greatest mysteries have remained un-deciphered…until now. This is not speculation—the Wheel of Stars is real—the mathematics within this publication have been verified with scientific precision. Roth will show you, in graphic detail, how this “lost” information has been in the Word of YHWH all along, passed down from Enoch to Moses to David, to Ezra and up to the time of Messiah. Scripture tells us that hidden knowledge would be revealed, our computer age has confirmed something magnificent. If you thought “Torah Codes Research” was amazing, you haven’t seen anything yet! Join Roth on an adventure that deciphers clues scattered across the world and forgotten for millennia, only to re-emerge with one of the greatest life-affirming messages Scripture can give us about ourselves, our role in the Cosmos and the ultimate fulfillment of all our hopes! This is something that no work of fiction could match because this is real, it is true, what has happened in history is happening now! Wheel of Stars shows how the sun, moon and stars set dates in ancient times and how and why information about the calendar was suppressed by the priesthood. Roth employs an eclectic approach that brings astronomy and the prophetic calendar to a whole new level.

Sure I could be wrong. But until I'm proven wrong Andrew is wrong for me. The purpose of his book is to teach certain concepts and that means you at least have to try to explain away that 'next verse' that confronts your theory.
Even worse he sometimes just ignores a very obvious keyword.
"Following the order which we have adopted, we proceed to speak of the third festival, that of the new moon. First of all, because it is the beginning of the month, and the beginning, whether of number or of time, is honorable. Secondly, because at this time there is ***nothing*** in the whole of heaven destitute of light."
The author's comment on that quote from Philo is:
"The beginning is "destitute of light" the opposite-poetically and scientifically-of the Full Moon! Poetic justice indeed!"
I must add I have the same view as the author on this point, but again he cherry picks and doesn't even attempt to explain what the word 'nothing' is all about.
He also likes to bow on his Aramaic scholarship to prove some of his views. I can't read it so I just have to take his word on it. Or... I google a bit for his other work, a Bible translation from Aramaic. The reviews aren't all raving. That combined with the above example I'm not very willing to believe his interpretation.
In all fairness I must say there are also very positive reviews.
The reason I bought this book is because I heard Roth on God's Learning Channel & was somewhat amazed to learn that he says astronomical calculations make 2030 Resurrection Day to be "highly significant." (He demures from saying just how significant but I think one can read between the lines.)
Before I ever heard of this book, I read conflicting research on when Yeshua, aka Jesus, was crucified but had decided it was probably in 30 A.D., and Roth agrees with that year.
I noticed 30 A.D. would give 40 years before the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D., 40 being a highly significant number in Scriptures. It also made sense to me, personally, that the time of the Resurrection would be a turning point in caclulating Biblical historical time. I assumed Yeshua was resurrected at the start of the 4000 year period in history, the 4th "day", and that 2000 years later would bring the completion of 6000 years, the very last "day." ("A thousand years is as a day...") Those calculatins bring us to 2030 Resurrection Day.
Again, Roth seemed to be providing scientific astronomical backup for my own informal calculations, so I'm very intrigued. But the book is just too dry & unrelentingly technical for me, personally, to work through. (Maybe some day.)
I give it 3 stars not 5 for that reason.
However if you are more patient than I am, and especially if you are into astronomy, you could find it quite fascinating. Maybe it would help, though, to go to Roth's website & see the GLC interview first?
[Edit just in case someone might be interested...
I now believe Messiah was crucified on April 3, 33 A.D. This is based on fairly recent studies of earthquake evidences in that area, plus analysis of the Bible and Jewish history of the time. It would seem that Messiah was baptized "to fulfill all righteousness" at the age of 30. This would bring the time of the destruction of the Temple to 40 years later if counting from when His Ministry, apparently, began. Mho the first 4000 years of 6000 would end at Passover, or at the Resurrection, or at the Ascension. Mho again, I think it would be at the Ascension. I am not pre trib but pre wrath, but there still is a rapture and it seems to me you could say Yahushua was raptured 40 days after Passover, thus truly ending His Ministry on earth while in the flesh. Just giving my speculations for whatever food for thought they might provide.]
