“Bible Meteorology” by Prof. R. R. Kelkar

As Prof. R. R. Kelkar says in his preface, the main purpose of his book is to present a synthesis of the current precepts of the science of meteorology and what the Bible has said about the weather, and to show that they are not in conflict. In fact, he feels that what we read in the Bible is complementary to modern science and it should even provoke us to think a little differently and to do research in new directions.

Genesis, the first book of the Bible, begins by declaring that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Revelation, the last book of the Bible, ends with a vision of the new heavens and the new earth that God is going to create. In between these two descriptions, there are hundreds of references that touch almost every aspect of weather, in the real or physical sense as well as allegorically. However, these numerous references bring out one common theme that all of nature does God’s bidding. God is in full control of every natural event that occurs on earth and every process that operates in the earth’s atmosphere. Nowhere in the Bible is there any thought or suggestion that the elements of nature are God-like or worthy of adoration and worship. Only God, who created the universe, is to be worshipped and not his creation, even if it appears awesome, has great beauty or demonstrates mighty power.

This book does not contain any theological arguments and the science of meteorology has been presented in the simplest manner possible. It has the following 16 chapters, which are related but also make sense independently:

01 The Sky Above
02 The Four Winds
03 Chasing the Wind
04 The Clouds of Glory
05 The Pillar of Cloud
06 Showers of Blessing
07 The Dew of Heaven
08 Whiter than Snow
09 The Plague of Hail
10 The Voice of Thunder and the Flash of Lightning
11 The Storms of Life
12 No More Floods
13 Famine and Drought
14 The Four Seasons
15 God, Man and Nature
16 A New Heaven and a New Earth
