The last three chapters attempt to provide new insights regarding Jesus as Messiah, the Last Supper, the Bible Code, the number 666, the Piscean age and symbology, the Holy Grail, the origins of Islam, the Nazca lines, the moons and orbits of Uranus and Neptune, the Phobos moon of Mars, nuclear holocaust past and present (Armageddon(s)), Divine time versus Celestial time, and concludes with various theories on predicting the time of the "end of days" which mark the return of Niburu and the Anunnaki.
Unfortunately, most of the topics in the last 3 chapters are treated in a short and superficial manner, resulting in less than convincing arguments in some cases. Consequently, one wonders if Sitchin is out of his depth here. Also, Sitchin's comments regarding the origins of Islam and the present state of Islamic sentiment towards Israel are the premise for his assertion that we are facing a potentially history-repeating nuclear holocaust (Armageddon again). Some may find controversy in these "political" comments.
Other interesting points in this book: 1) As in his previous works, Sitchin avoids the whole issue of Anunnaki technology; 2) In previous books, the Sumerian reference to the "black-headed people" was said to refer to the peoples of Africa.Read more ›
Sitchin's gift is his ability to tie together information from diverse disciplines like linguistics, astronomy and ancient texts. He shows clear examples of how they are in agreement that have not been previously mentioned. This points to explanations that sometimes diverge from what is academically accepted. Conventional archeology is increasingly straining too hard to incorporate recent discoveries in its narrative. New scientific disciplines may soon push the envelope into a revolution in our concept of history. When that happens I suspect they will find that Sitchen was on the right path already.
I don't agree with everything Sitchin writes, but do appreciate this book's synthesis of knowledge. It is thought provoking and well written. Unless you've read some of his previous books it may be difficult to grasp his overall concept. I highly recommend it.

Sitchin is fascinating. This entire series of Annunaki analysis is worth buying.
I ordered all books in one batch and they shipped and arrived on time.
The real tragedy of this book is that even though it is a piece of apocalyptic fiction, readers may credit it as a valid introduction to the Ancient Near East. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Book Maven
