If you've never broached the "Ancient Aliens" subject, this is good introduction. The writing is decent, the research is good, the breadth of coverage is good.

Here are some things I like about the book:

* Scott doesn't throw out the baby with the bathwater. He believes in the Creator, and he believes the stories and testimony of Jesus. This is a wise but all too rarely held position in Ancient Alien circles. This is why he gets my respect.

* He covers all the right subjects, with emphasis on the seminal Book of Enoch, which is really about the only thing you need to read to understand Ancient Alien theory.

Here are some things I was disappointed with:

* He declares the book of Jasher as "lost". It's not lost any more than the Book of Enoch is lost, and it has some good information on the subject. To his credit, though, he does reference the Book of Jubilees, making good points.

* He's apparently completely overlooked the Dead Sea Scrolls' "Fragments of the Book of Noah", wherein Noah's genetic qualities are described as very un-human-like, even supernatural. This is a serious omission. To his credit, though, he does explain what the bible means when it describes Noah as "perfect in his generations". It's surprising how few people even know that. But then again, unless they've read the Book of Enoch, they couldn't hope to know. We have Constantine to thank for choosing to eliminate the one book that makes the entire book of Genesis understandable.

* Personally I grow weary of the pandering to the larger, not-so-well-informed masses. For my money, I would prefer the author gets to the meat of the matter and quick. I got so bored towards the end of the book, I just put it down and declared it read.

This title caught my attention, I have heard Scott Roberts on several radio shows and was curious on his position. After reading his book I found myself questioning many concepts I had been taught to believe What I appreciate about his writing is that he does not try to brow beat the reader into his thinking, but spends a great deal of time debunking current thought in church beliefs. Scott presents his findings through a unique and honest thought process, extensive research, with a vast array of historical documentations of his opinions. Without using any preconcieved beliefs, he takes you along for the ride as he answers his questions and questions his answers, and allows the reader come to their own conclusions. This book is thought provokling and refreshing for the casual reader or the professional.

This book gives you something --- actually a lot of things ---- to think about and ponder.

Scotty Roberts is a great writer and excellent researcher in to the long forgotten books of the Bible and the stories that have crossed the paths of many cultures and civilizations.

Who or what is the Nephilim? Fallen angels .....
Or ... Where the angels actually aliens from another world? How are they tied to the Gods of Olympus? plus much more .....

Scotty does not promise to give you all the answers, but he will make you think long and hard about what you think you know and what you were taught in Sunday School.

The Rise and Fall of the Nephilim gives a great account of the mysterious 'watchers', the ones who were called the sons of god who looked upon the daughters of man, which apparently started all the vice on Earth. It's not much of a stretch to speculate that lust for the beautiful earth women is what caused the downfall of even the 'sons of god', because lust seems to be what drives our society even now. Just look at advertising, or a Victoria Secret catalog and you'll see that lust is what drives us to buy-buy-buy, and can even bring down a president.

Scott Alan Roberts pulls together the threads of the story by way of Biblical references, where he certainly knows his subject. While apologizing way too much for stepping on the toes of believers, in my humble opinion, Roberts shows how the passages of the Bible, and the Book of Enoch can be made much clearer if you insert real beings for the 'watchers', instead of angelic beings. This makes sense, since imagining a being made of spirit, giving up his lofty position just for sex, does seem a bit silly.

Pros: Roberts gives up a great Biblical background to the Nephilim, and even includes the ancient astronaut theories. He includes Stichin's theories, giving us background into how the translations were amiss. I can't vouch for that since I don't read ancient languages, or more than one modern one for that matter.

Cons: I didn't feel as if I learned anything new with this book, though I had just been reading The Genius of the Few, by Christian & Barbara Joy O'Brian, two authors who define this research.

Roberts does back up his work with a very thorough, notes, bibliography and an appendix which will come in handy to fellow researchers. This book is a good introduction to the subject of the Nephilim.

I liked the idea of this topic and was hoping for more empiricle evidence. Too much biased logic, summary, and opinion and not enough historical and cultural evidence. I was skipping pages at a time because of "fluff".
