DVD and book reviews
Lambert Dolphin, Physicist, Santa Clara, CA: Studies of the Star of Bethlehem often appear around Christmas time, many merely rehashing old legends and reviving antiquated speculations. Barry's marvelous all-new study, on the other hand, is head and shoulders above all the rest! The science is thoroughly up to date, the Biblical background information is deep and rich. This is not merely a "seasonal study" for the holidays it's a classic stand-alone study which I heartily recommend for all audiences.
Rev. Tim Barnhouse, Pastor North Mill Creek Baptist Church, WV: A very enlightening study that every Christian needs to see... Barry does a great job of stripping away traditionalism, and replacing it with the truth of Scripture. I will be using this DVD for our November Bible Studies.
Gwyneth, Wales, UK: I have just watched a remarkable DVD it is called `The Christmas star`. It shows through scripture, history and astronomy proof of the Christmas story. I thoroughly enjoyed it , and my husband , who can be a bit sceptical about these matters was amazed at the depth of study and accuracy of facts in this DVD which when put together seem to have dispelled some of his doubts.
Doug McIntosh: Just wanted to send a note of thanks after having had a chance to view the entire Christmas Star video. It is absolutely wonderful, so packed with information. I'm sure I'll watch it again and again
Norma Ramey: My friend and I watched the DVD last eve and we were very impressed. Your research is so enlightening and answered questions I have had for a long time. Also it dispelled some misinformation that is in Christian circles. Both of us agreed we needed to watch it again. Thanks so very much for your years of research and study .
from a pastor: The Christmas Star DVD was awesome, my church watched a segment a week in our Sunday School leading up to Christmas and it has really enhanced our December!
The Judges review in awarding "Anomalies" the 2015 award for Best Pioneering Lecture Series:
Larry Uland, Indiana: "I am enjoying the DVD's thoroughly; and remain amazed at how Barry is able to comprehend the BIG picture, synthesize it into a unified concept, and then simplify it so laymen (like me) can grasp it."
Christie Michas, California: "I watched all 4 parts of Barry's Anomalies DVD this evening and thought it was AWESOME! My degree (1976) was a biology major/chemistry minor so I have minimal physics or astronomy background. However, Barry's presentation was so clearly explained that it really helped me understand the basic ideas. I am looking forward to reading your book about the Bible and Geology. Thank you for all your dedication, hard work, and commitment to seeking the truth. I am deeply appreciative and grateful to be able to learn from the fascinating material you have produced."
"This is a masterpiece! Your approach is fresh and attractive as well as presenting the reader with a whole new sensible approach to earth’s geological history. Using atomic time for the main part of this report means any secular geologist will surely feel comfortable with the new geological order you make so plain and clear."
Ruth, North Carolina: "I have delayed in thanking you for the program you sent me to download: "The Bible and Geology." It is most interesting and absolutely true. I wish everyone could read it."
"Your writings 'ding the bell'; re your new 'signs of the times'. Nobody had so well explained prophecy in all my years of trying to get a grasp on what Daniel et al were saying beyond Alexander and his four generals.
"I've already watched all of it. I've studied end times prophesy interpretations a lot over the years, but it was always Euro-centric as far as the anti-Christ was concerned. Barry's teachings about middle east wars, Islam, and Turkey are much more up to date and compelling.
"I studied Physics and Astronomy in college and grad school largely because I had a deep desire to learn about the origin of our universe. The atom and the universe were amazingly complex to me, and beautifully designed at every level, yet none of Stanford's best professors knew anything more than I did about the existence of a Creator. I knew there was no such thing as "chance." Such intricacies and order everywhere (both microscopically and macroscopically) point to a living designer. Half a dozen years after grad school I became a follower of Jesus Christ. Reconciling science to the Biblical account of fiat creation was now a very daunting task for me. These were for me life's biggest questions.
