Editorial Reviews

Review

"Sitchin is a zealous investigator into man's origins . . . a dazzling performance." (Kirkus Reviews)

" . . . a mind-boggling revelation sure to overturn current theories about the origins of humankind and the solar system." (Suzette, reviewer, sci-encebooksarchaeology.blogspot.com,  Dec 2008)

"Exciting . . . credible . . . most provocative and compelling." (Library Journal)

"Sitchin's works are outstandingly different from all others that present this central theme. His linguistic skills in the languages of antiquity and his pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photographs and line drawings appearing in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, and seals." (Rosemary Decker, historian and researcher) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

Science and Myth
Are they one and the same?

• Has a prehistoric space base on Mars been reactivated?

• Was Adam the first test-tube baby? And was Eve the original beneficiary of organ transplant surgery?

• Did nuclear weapons destroy Sodom and Gomorrah?

• Did computer printouts exist 5,000 years ago?

• How were the ancients able to accurately describe details about our solar system that are only now being revealed by space probes?

• Is humankind, in catching up with ancient knowledge, also repeating ancient incidents as that of the Tower of Babel?

The awesome answers are all here, fully documented with the latest scientific findings, in this important companion volume to The Earth Chronicles series. Having presented evidence of an additional planet as well as voluminous information about the other planets in our solar system, Zecharia Sitchin now shows how the discoveries of modern astrophysics, astronomy, and genetics exactly parallel what has already been revealed in ancient Sumerian, Egyptian, and biblical texts regarding the enigmas of the heavens, Earth, and the creation of life. Genesis Revisited is a mind-boggling revelation sure to overturn current theories about the origins of humankind and the solar system.

Zecharia Sitchin was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. He is distinguished by his ability to translate and interpret ancient Sumerian and other ancient texts. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor for many years prior to undertaking his life’s work--The Earth Chronicles. He now lives and writes in New York City. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.

This book will open your mind to a truth that will astound you.

I am an amateur astronomer, so I was very interested as well as concerned when I first started to read this book.

Mr. Sitchin shows how the bible and the ancient text work together to explain our origins.

This is probably the best of all Sitchin's work, since it essentially summarises the 5 Earth Chronicles books. The basic hypothesis is the same - Earth was probably visited in the distant past by extraterrestials who genetically engineered Man as a mining slave. Sounds whacky yes, but Sitchin's scholarship is unchallenged by most. For those who don't have the patience to read his 6 or 7 other books on the subject, this one will do nicely. Read it with an open mind and remember, what he says at least presents a scientific alternative to blind acceptance that Man was divinely created. And for those who want to pursue more about Man's past, read "Forbidden Archaeology'' by Michael Cremo and Richard Thompson. Your worldview will never be the same again

This man doesn't just want to sell books; he's on a lifelong quest for the truth that he's willing to share with us. He's is the unique position to do this because of his intellect, his education and his cultural backround.
The Bible is so full of riddles that it provides more questions than answers. In Genesis Revisited, Zecharia Sitchin asks the right questions and puts the pieces of the puzzle together in a way that makes more sense than anything I've come across in my life with respect to the Bible.

This book changed my life. Sitchin writes with authority and insight and provokes a great deal of questioning about the origin of our species, what we know of god, the geological formation of the planet and the essence of human nature. Very powerful. I would give anything for the ideas put forth in this book to become widely recogized and debated. This book will open your mind to a truth that will astound you.

As person of strong religious conviction, I read this book with an open mind knowing that should the author stray from the bible's context I would know it both mentally and spiritualy. For me the book of Genesis has always been the most facinating book on earth, and long before reading Mr. Sitchen's work I myself have sat down and with a concordance found many of the words suspect of far deeper meaning and import. It has always been my personal belief that the truth of it all is far more fabulous then any of us could possibly imagine. Mr. Sitchen's affection for the book of genesis is obvious from the first chapter. With his decisiveness and scholarly approach, he vindicates it. The things learned in this book for me are not about entertainment, but about facing a reality about our existance and our purpose and even our fate that goes far beyond the end of my mere nose. And yours too.

I have to admit at first i was sceptic, but i like to think about myself as an open minded individual so i read it. I couldn't put the book down. Granted some of Mr. Sitchin's ideas are to say the least, provocative, but what if he's right? If you are religious individual it will make you reread the bible time and time again searching for the things he talks about, and if your are not it will make you pick up a the bible and do the same thing. In any case it was and still is a good book, as are all the Earth Chronicle books.

I am an amateur astronomer, so I was very interested as well as concerned when I first started to read this book. To start off, I agree with the premise we are not the only beings out there, (or even within our solar system). But, his knowledge of Ancient Sumerian does nothing for his astronomy. For one thing,Uranus & Neptune & Pluto & Charon(Plutos moon-oh yes, it has one) are not made of H2O, but of Methane, Ammonia & other very toxic gases. Uranus was indeed known in ancient times, & there is the possibility its phases (like Venus) were viewed. There are several Egyptian & Babylonian & Greek & Chinese astronomy charts that show it moving across the sky, although in some cultures it was not thought of as a planet. After all, there was no such thing as our infamous-- Light Pollution. The other idea of Nabiru being twice the orbit of Pluto, & the planet not only being there, but viable for life, is unlikely in the extreme. Although, as Pioneer I & II and Voyager I & II showed, truth is usually stranger than fiction. He does though save his best for last, especially his comments on the unusual features of Mars. I truly wish it would show ancient pyramids with compounds of jet fighters & all sorts of alien apparatus & the Face! My lord, what a Face! This book is a little outdated, as the real Face showed up recently under the Mars Surveyor. It did not look like anyone I would care to know. But all in all, what he does do is get a lot of people excited to start looking into astronomy,(NASA has a great web site by the way, and you can download lots of incredible pictures, from Hubble and others) religion & our past. That is not a bad thing.Read more ›

Honestly, I'm not a big book reader. Seldom do I find a book that is able to hold my interest from beginning to end. Genesis Revisited is one of the very few I have actually read entirely. The book is such a beneficial read for your mind and comprehension of our species, regardless of whether or not its true. After reading it though, I found it hard to believe the detailed story of Genesis found on the ancient Sumerian tablets was in any way a man made myth. Friends, I highly recommend this book to all of you. It is to be considered an asset in the search for the true self.
