This work really gives the reader some solid insight on how giants potentially thought, developed, and interacted with non-giants. I personally enjoy seeing another person's thinking about how giants potentially thought and lived -- the culture that giants lived in is largely unexplored and this book expands my thinking about how to develop and think about that culture. I use it as inspiration for writing about giants and the ancient Levant.
Great job, Demmon! I can see you did a lot of research in this and I appreciate it.
(side note: if you're easily offended by Scripture being used incorrectly in a fictional work, you probably shouldn't read this book)
These transcribed writings really are full of all kinds of, as Father Martin quotes, "..Blasphemy". All of the book is approximately only 100 pages but it's really heavy, yet very enjoyable to read.
Demmon transcribed and laid out this book in sections and sequences that are easy to digest in format. In subject matter.. is another story. As I mean that in a sadistically positive way. As King Og shows his hatred for the circumsized Nephilim, Nimrod. I'll leave it at that.
Not giving anything away, but if the transcriptions of King Og are not dark enough for you, the afterword from Father Martin is flat out bone-chilling.
Make sure you have [Chaser and Driver] when reading this blasphemy.
Before purchasing the book, I had to be honest with myself and acknowledge that these are the writings of a giant from antiquity. Do I believe in giants? How much do I believe in the Bible's telling of the giants? That is the rack that all readers have to find to hang their hat upon. I went in as a skeptic and came out the other side with a wealth of deep concepts and long-buried original concepts. I am still unsure if giants actually existed in Biblical times, but oh boy, this book really tipped the scales towards such a reality.
The Lost Book of King Og presents a violent, Baal worshiping, female-less society of Rephaim giants directly before and after the Biblical flood in Genesis. The notion that the Vatican would suppress such a text makes complete sense as one reads through the text. The blasphemy is extreme, spiritually perverse, ancient and complete. Most puzzling is that there is no real sexual perversion in the translation because the giants have been rendered useless in that department due to their lack of women. The concept of giants having sex with human women isn't even addressed. Probably because it was a physical impossibility.
I think what sold me on this book was this quote on the back by Father Martin:
"The Book of King Og is the densest Christian blasphemy that I have ever read."
The quote is a hard-sell, but it is accurate if you are familiar with your scripture. An example of this is that King Og puts on the whole armor of Baal before physical warfare on the battlefield. In some ways is the armor is similar to the armor of God spoken of in Ephesians 6. Leaving the reader with the question of the spiritual armor's existence in the first place. Does the concept of King Og's armor pre-date Paul's letter to Ephesus? I'll tell you that I am highly persuaded to think so.
By the way, verse numbers throughout the text make it easy to cross-reference and make notes (I made plenty).
I found that the most interesting chapters are those that can't be found online ( www.thelostbookofkingog.com ). I read through what was available online before I purchased the book, because I wanted to make sure the 20 bucks that I spent wasn't being wasted. What is missing coupled with what is available online is definitely is worth the price. Those exclusively for the book are chapters where the giants are named and their spiritual and physical deformities and gifts (sort of like the "begats" in the Bible) are expounded upon before they go the "Hundred Thousand Giant War," which historically happened before the great flood.
Father Martin, the actual translator of the book is afforded 2 key quotes (including the one above that is on the book jacket) and an afterward in the book that is really insightful. Father Martin reads like he is the throes of a personal spiritual crisis in his "Satan's Work Is Done" essay at the end of the book.
The Lost Book of King Og is short, but incredibly dense. There is so much going on here that it is going to take me another reading. I took a lot of notes. The concepts of "The Unspeakable Mistake," "smaller selves," "The dark and bright ones," "The Driver and the Chaser," "The Moonchild", the sacrificing of infants to Baal, and the origin of the concept of circumcision are all on display. The world presented is one that I never, ever considered.
As a student of the Bible, I feel driven to it to determine which came first, The Book of Og or The Bible. What seems to be apparent is that the writers of the Bible had access to this forbidden text.
The Lost Book of King Og is definitely a must-read if you are looking for more information on the world that surrounded Noah in Genesis 6, or Moses in Numbers 21.
If you don't believe that the text is original, it certainly won't take from this absolutely fascinating presentation.
I suppose that in the end, this book is a great read and activates your brain in areas you didn't ever consider. Is that not what reading a book is all about?
Now I have to go back and read the Book of Enoch and cross-reference even more!
