This volume presents three revelations of supreme importance, con­cerning the origin of the Zodiac, the Labors of Hercules, and the relation of the Sun Myth to the Christian religion.
Why is the Zodiac divided into 12 signs and not some other number?  Why should there be only four elements, earth, air, fire, water?  Why should each have three manifestations in the Zodiac?

All the myths and allegories involving 12, such as Jacob and his 12 sons, also the 12 Disciples of Jesus, and the 12 months of the year etc., are all based upon the 12-fold division of the Zodiac.  But nowhere in print have we found any philosophical and scientific rea­son why the division into 12 was chosen, save in this volume.  Truly a momentous discovery.

Why should the peculiar animals used be applied to the Zodiac when the forms of the constellations they embrace in no way resemble or even suggest such animals?  The reason is found only in this volume.  Vitally necessary for all students of astrology.

Nowhere in all literature can the interpretation of the 12 Labors of Hercules be found.  In this volume the authors not only give the interpretation, but connect each labor with its proper zodiacal sign.  This one feature might well form a valuable book in itself.

The Universal Sun Myth has been the basis of the life-narrative of every Sun God or spiritual Light Bearer sent to humanity.  This volume shows that this is more than a myth and why it is a spiritual reality.  These chapters are a direct challenge to the so-called "higher critics" of the Bible and a complete refutation of their chief claims against the Bible story.  Of great importance to all students of com­parative religion, to ministers and to Bible students generally.

These are only a few of the many revelations of this truly wonderful volume.
