More About the Author

Elizabeth Clare Prophet (1939 - 2009) was born in Red Bank, New Jersey on the eve of the Second World War. As a young girl she attended various churches in her never-ending quest to find God and a closer relationship with Jesus. Her search brought her to The Summit Lighthouse and meeting Mark L Prophet in 1960.

In 1973, with the transition of Mark Prophet, Elizabeth continued the work of The Summit Lighthouse, holding conferences around the world and authoring cutting edge spiritual books until her retirement in 1999 due to health reasons.

Elizabeth said of her work, "I am the servant of the light in all students of the ascended masters and in all people.

My books and writings are intended to give people the opportunity to know the truth that can make them free - so they can find God without me.

I do not claim to be a master nor do I claim to be perfect in my human self. I am but the instrument of the Ascended Masters.

My mission is to take true seekers, in the tradition of the masters of the Far East (which Jesus exemplified), to the level of consciousness where they can meet their teachers face to face."

Elizabeth Clare Prophet's books cover a wide range of spiritual subjects, from angels, ascended masters, the violet flame, karma and reincarnation, new age family life, twin flames and soul mates to using meditation and decrees to connect to your holy Christ Self and effect positive change in your world.

The Summit Lighthouse continues to hold quarterly conferences on the teachings of the ascended masters at their headquarters in Corwin Springs, Montana and seminars around the world.

Customer Reviews

I found this book to be very informative.
Truth Seeker
She and her lot do nothing but detract from the credibility of an otherwise logical and historically sound genre.
Ian Driscoll
The entire actual book of Enoch is in the book and you can read for yourself to make up your own mind.

Did you ever wonder about the "sons of God" in the sixth chapter of Genesis? Well, it was a few lines summing up the book of Enoch, likely written prior to Genesis even. This book argues that Enoch is Scripture and also explains why that is so. But since as the cover reads the church fathers suppressed it, we don't find it in our Bibles today. But by drawing parallels to it and our Bible it concludes Jesus had thorough Enochian knowledge. Not only that, but that all the characters of biblical times knew of the Watchers' fall, and the adulteration of our race with Nephilim genetics. They also believe that there were 2 'falls' of the angels rather than one, as commonly thought of as result to Lucifer's fall. The first, out of pride, the Nephilim fell. Second, out of lust, did the Watchers. And as temptation befell the Watchers to incarnate male homo sapiens, the daughters of ancient man gave birth to giants, reputed to be 300 cubits tall by the books translation of Enoch. That also adds to this books value, it has the complete book of Enoch and the book of the secrets of Enoch, and excerpts from the book of Jubilees and the testaments of the twelve patriarchs. Last of all, the book has many illustrations of angel related scenes portrayed. Not a likely best seller, but a worthy read for those interested:)

This is not the space for comment on the author. Anyone wanting to know about Elizabeth Clare Prophet, her Church Universal Triumphant, and the Summit Lighthouse organization can very easily search for her own web pages on the net and form their own judgement.
One thing you will not find in this book is a cogent examination of 'Why church fathers supressed the book of Enoch'. To write on such a subject one would have to know something about the formation of the Hebrew canon - an area in which Ms. Prophet clearly has not even taken the trouble to read the standard texts (such as Leiman, Wurthwein and Tov), and then on patristics (where R.H. Charles gives a decent summary of Origen, Jerome and other fathers' views on Enoch).
However, on the positive side, for those who are looking for a copy of the Book of Enoch, some alternative suggestions:
If you are looking for a general read about all the various traditions about the Enoch mentioned in Genesis and then taken up by various Jewish, Christian and Muslim writers since, the book for you is probably 'Enoch A Man for All Generations' by the eminent professor James Vanderkam, chairman of the Society for Biblical Literature.
If you are looking for a scholarly and accurate translation of the original text of Book of Enoch as quoted in Jude 14, then the book for you is either the 1912 translation by R.H. Charles published (still) by SPCK, or the Old Testament Pseudepigrapha Volume 1 ed. J.H. Charlesworth, and published by Doubleday 1983. Avoid the elderly 1821 translation by Rev. Richard Laurence if possible. If the SPCK version is out of print, there seem to be various 'reproduction' copies available from American New Age publishing houses.

Format: Paperback
Fallen Angels and the Origins of Evil is an immaculately well researched book detailing not only how evil came into this world, but also how Church Fathers in early Christianity set out to destroy the Book of Enoch and its teachings. This was despite the fact that Enoch's ancient scripture had been revered by the biblical patriarchs throughout the Holy Land for hundreds of years. Even today the Vatican considers the Book of Enoch to be heretical and it is not included in the Bible.

For those persons who are unfamiliar with the Book of Enoch, it is one of the earliest scriptures ever writen which describes how 'son's of God', or fallen angels, rebelled against God and took 'daughters of men' to be their wives on Earth, as outlined in Genesis 6. It also has many other detailed teachings including, who first taught mankind how to build and use weapons of war, and also the prophesy of God's Final Judgement.

Elizabeth Prophet's splendid book is one of the most important books ever written about Enoch's scripture. It is a wonderful buy and contains many sections including, the entire Book of Enoch, Concealed Biblical References to the Watchers (and Nephilim) and also Biblical Parallels to the Book of Enoch which show exactly how these fallen angels have been "from the beginning the spoilers of the dreams of God and man".

If your interest in suppressed scripture and early Christianity was sparked by reading Dan Brown's Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code, then you will love this book. It is a compelling body of work and a must have for anyone who wants to learn about the true origins of evil and its continued existence into present day 'civilization'. The conclusions this book offers are both shocking and controversial and are perhaps more important today than ever before.

Format: Paperback
I decided to give this book two stars because it offers a basic introduction to 1 Enoch and similar texts; it is also a cheap alternative for people wanting to read the apocryphal text without spending a great deal of money. However, I found the book to be quite disappointing and I can't consider it to be recommended reading. The majority of the book is nothing but Richard Laurence's translation of 1 Enoch and other related texts (such as The Book of Jubilees), so Prophet herself does not really offer any major content or insight. On a positive note, Prophet does provide some useful cross-references, footnotes, and chapters detailing parallels between Enoch and the Biblical texts (otherwise I would have given this 1 star). However, some of these are better than others, so readers should be careful when evaluating whether or not the parallels actually exist or if they are imposed upon the texts by the author.

I also disagree with most of Prophet's theories regarding the Watchers, the Nephilim, and the ongoing (perceived) struggle of good versus evil. I'm being somewhat kind to say that she's doing nothing more than offering "speculation" because there is really no support (archaeologically, scientifically, or even scripturally) to demonstrate concrete evidence of her ideas. For instance, she writes that human beings have continually been demonically possessed by evil fallen angels to carry out their dirty work and to aid in the ultimate destruction of humankind. While I'm sure that some people might find this argument believable, I find it very unconvincing and completely dependent upon adherence to superstitious beliefs. I consider it especially ridiculous when she tries to argue that this is happening even in our current day with political leaders and other important figures.
