David W. Mathisen investigates the evidence that the world's ancient myths, scriptures and sacred stories are speaking a language of celestial metaphor which is based on the heavenly cycles of the sun, the moon, the visible planets, and the stars and constellations. He is the author of six books exploring this language and these connections, including the multi-volume series Star Myths of the World, and how to interpret them , as well as Astrotheology for Life and The Undying Stars . He also publishes a blog, videos, and other material at www.starmythworld.com. David Mathisen graduated from the US Military Academy at West Point and has a masters degree in literature from Texas A&M University. He has taught in the Department of English and Philosophy at West Point, and has had a love of the ancient myths and the stars in our night sky since he was a young child.
