I really enjoyed this book! Obviously he took a lot of creative license when writing the novel, but the key elements were based in scripture and other Biblically-endorsed texts, which made for a fun and informative read.
I enjoyed the reference section at the end as well, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it spurred me to start doing my own additional research on the topic, while giving me great places to start looking.
While it was well written and enjoyable, it wasn’t the best novel I’ve ever read. I felt like some of the story was rushed and the key plot points were wrapped up a little too quickly. I think he cut some of the story short just to accommodate the large reference section and not end up with a book as thick as a Matthew Henry commentary.
Overall I enjoyed the book and am well on my way to reading the entire series! I would recommend the books to anyone!
Chronicles of the Nephilim Series by Brian Godawa is a Wonderful, Amazing Adventure series based on the Bible. The Series contains 8 books which are;
Noah Primeval (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 1)
Enoch Primordial (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 2) A Prequel to Book 1. (I read this one first to stay in time order, But you can do it which ever way your prefer).
Gilgamesh Immortal (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 3)
Abraham Allegiant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 4)
Joshua Valiant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 5)
Caleb Vigilant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 6)
David Ascendant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 7)
and the soon Coming Jesus Ascendant (Chronicles of the Nephilim Book 8)
Brian Godawa is an author who entertains and educates. We get the Biblical Narrative as well as many ancient beliefs and myths (Babylonian, Assyrian, Philistine, etc.,) all put together in a wonderful coherent story that stays true to Biblical narrative and at the same time is a fast paced action packed adventure drama with superheros and super villains deluxe.
In a way this is like Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, but instead of taking biblical truths and setting them to a myth it takes the Biblical stories and fills in the blanks with "myths". Godawa takes mythical concepts and makes them real in the books such as Leviathan and Rahab. But he has done his research and this fictional story may be closer to the truth then many expect.
Godawa deals with Angels, Fallen Angels, Nephilim, The Giants in Scriptures, Demons, Giant Slayers, etc., There are additional pages of special appendixes that provide an explanation of Biblical concepts all 7 novel's such as the Divine Council, the Nephilim, Leviathan, and the ancient Mesopotamian Cosmography in the Bible, Number of Israelites who left Egypt, Styers, Dragons, etc.,
IF you like Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, Harry Potter, really any fantasy writings you will like this as well. This is an adult series though. Not for the very young. I really hope they make the whole series into movies.
Journey with Enoch, his son Methuselah, and grandson Lamech as they battle giants, chimeras, werewolves, siren-like enchantresses, and the gigantic Behemoth. Plus get a peek into what the Holy Council of God could be like and why Enoch the prophet was taken from the Earth to serve in it.
I thoroughly enjoyed these books and look forward to the rest of the series. Good job, Brian! For an in-depth interview with Brian Godawa check out our podcast, The Theonauts, where we talk about the book series with him: http://gctnetwork.com/chronicles-of-the-nephilim/
