Every Christian needs to know a little something about Transhumanism. Unless one is part of the esoteric group of Christians prone to study and watch the development within secular society, it might not suit your palette to ingest a great lot of knowledge about something that doesn't ring your bell. That is what's so great about this book.

This book isn't a in-depth study of Transhumanism. It is more of a "get-your-feet-wet" kind of book that makes it easy to not only glean the tenants of Transhumanism from, appropriately biased to the Christian perspective, but to see it from many perspectives and various viewpoints. For a more in-depth study, I would point one to Tom and Nita Horn's Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, and Human Enhancement Herald The Dawn Of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare.

This book is actually a collection of essays written by multiple authors. You will take away from it a "better-than-basic" understanding of the real-world definitions, pursuits, and implications of modern efforts in Transhumanism. Some essays are written purely on a scholarly level, while others are certainly more jocular and less refined. One thing every author is is serious about their subject. Their approaches are all distinct, and you will need to prepare your mind for reading at different levels of both linguistic and cognitive skill levels. Stretch those mental muscles before undertaking.

Keep in mind, almost all these authors are cut from the same Christian cloth. They are those Christians who tread on the more metaphysical (and controversial) ground of Christianity than your average Sunday-School teacher. Some flirt with the fringes of conspiracy, and, most unfortunately, almost all present ideas that are well beyond what the mainstream Christian denominations would consider "respectible". These are the same people you will hear teaching the NON-Sethite view of Genesis 6, that is, all about the Nephilim, Watchers, Giants, etc, from the antediluvian world, and their potential return in Christian eschatology. These are the ones watching the Papacy right now for the potential fulfillment of St. Malachy's prophecy. Chances are, your Church leadership will not approve. But you do need what these authors have to offer. In my opinion, these guys are the cure from the insipidity and superficiality today's Churches seems so fond of propagating, but this is not the proper medium for church-bashing, so I will digress.

I am not trying to discourage you from buying the book (nor am I encouraging you to). I am only making you aware that these guys tread in deep waters. Read anything ANY of these authors have published and you are bound to walk away realizing you have been wading in the shallow end of the pool of Christian theology and ideas all these years.

Before reading this book I had a somewhat superficial idea about what the term 'transhumanism' means. Now I have a more solid grasp on the topic. Different Christian authors wrote each chapter, so there is a strong faith-consensus backing this well-researched material up, yet these topics are generally not covered in mainstream churches. Read this book to learn what you are not likely to learn in your local church! And yes, the information is needful. We are supposed to labor in prayer. More topics were added to my lift list after reading this book, and I trust the same will be true for many people of faith.

This book reminded me of a fictional book I read some years ago by Ellen Gunderson Traylor: Noah. In it, Noah encounters genetic hybrids and chimeras. When I first read Traylor's story of Noah, I felt tempted to resist the idea that genetic tampering could have been part of the ancient world. Subsequent research led me to accept it, and Pandemonium's Engine solidified it even further for me: As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be... [Matt 24]

And it's Ubermensch (meaning Superman) in the title, not bermensch.

This book is fantastic! Very informative, enlightening, shocking, really. I never heard of any of these things! Everything is in great detail! In fact it makes me want to get involved in this movement to get Christians educated about how things affect them, and motivate other Christians to oppose aspects of it that will destroy Christianity. I am passing this book to my sister and other friends. A "MUST READ" book!

The book shows us how close we are to the coming man of sin or the Anti- Christ and the rapture of the church. The freemason, illuminati banking /Jesuit NWO satanic superstructure is very effective in the art of deception and disinformation.
I was shocked by the naked half human half beast transsexual sculptures at Stellenbosch University which shows you what the freemason intellectuals are really up to. Away with God From our Universities, what we want is to worship and deify ourselves and to remake ourselves into immortal superheroes. No longer created in Gods image but recreated into the rebellious beast's image.
The Holy Spirit is busy unwinding the spirit of lawlessness. Soon fallen man will fall into gross darkness and demonic perversion because they've rejected God. Be ready for the Rapture.

One of the qualities of this book is it is not reduced to the opinions of one man. There are many contributors who are well respected in the Christian community, who have researched their material well for this book. This would not be an easy read for the first time reader but might get them started in the direction of '' The Study of the End Times" . I would like to note with the resignation of the Pope, Tom Horn & Chris Putnam`s book Petrus Romanus is also a must read. We are truly in interesting times and the days ahead deserve much Prayer and Scrutiny.... An old soldier of the Cross.

This an amazing exposure of the earliest attempts to alter the human DNA in ancient pre-flood times. And also an exposure of the huge, but little known DNA experimentation going on right now in countless laboratories at universities in the USA, Europe, and elsewhere. This book also reveals what many of the goals are for such research. It's all mind-blowingly amazing, even hard to believe, in that you wish it were not acually happening as you get more and more into it all...

For the past several years I started to take notice of the trends discussed in this book, but didn't know there was a "name" for the phenomenon. The authors of this collection of essays have clearly put much thought into transhumanism, which is certainly real. One of the most obvious examples of transhumanism shows up in the news almost every day: Google Glass. Although currently just a gadget, the developers of this product make clear their intentions to transition toward a hard-wired interface between Google Glass (a digital computer) and the brain. There are benefits and potentially very serious drawbacks to our ability to advance science toward such ends. I leave it to the reader to determine what he believes. As for the essays themselves, they seem to start strong, the better essays are at the start of the book, but then slowly degrade to the point where some are boring and unreadable. The book would have been stronger with better editorial control over the writing style and technical detail, with an aim for consistency and quality throughout.

Thomas Horn's books are fun speculation on matters currently being researched and discussed by those who want more than silly platitudinal answers to the disturbing world events events. I do not mind the sometimes way-out speculations Tom offers, but he responsibly tells us he does not sets dates to things he feels will surely happen. Neither does he claim prophetic knowledge.

Unlike one dissenters using the same line in all his many Tom Horn book reviews, that his "dad reads the worst forms of crap." Come on! A book review is not an in-family argument.

Tom Horm is very interesting in his radio interviews as well. Take that which is worth hearing, and discard what seems too much -- at least until it shows up on your doorstep.

This is a series of essays by leading experts on the subject of transhumanism. This was my first encounter with the subject and found this to be well documented and enlightening. Mind blowing. Highly recommended.

This is not what I would call, an easy read, but I am go greatful that this author and the other authors he mentions, have researched and provided us with the information we need to be prepared for iminent changes in our world. We may only be able to be prepared psychologically and emotionally, but at least we will have that, as we look for Christ's return.
