…by James A. Connor is an interesting book. I haven’t finished it yet, but here’s an excerpt from page 43:
“…Oddly enough, this ease with astrology puts the sensibilities of the seventeenth century at some distance even from those of modern Christians. Although liberal Christians follow Newton and wave off astrology as empty pseudo-science, conservative and fundamentalist Christians fear it as a manifestation of the occult, as dark superstition. How different this is from the ideas held by the founders of Protestantism and seventeenth century Christians in general, who saw the stars and their movements as divinely created sacraments, windows into the mind of God.”
I’ll keep reading.
