Mr. Godawa has made careful and thorough research on the subject of the Nephilim which is only briefly mentioned in the Bible. He has broadened my understanding of little known facts about the giants and the pagan beliefs of other cultures. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased that a Hollywood screenwriter would do justice to the teachings of God. I do disagree with him about his ideas about satan - I believe he is an individual spirit being and the leader of the other angels that revolted in Heaven. In the New Testament we note that he is ruler of this world John 12:31, he transforms himself into an angel of light II Cor 11:14 and he is also a roaring lion 1 Peter 5:8.
I am not totally finished with this book yet but I am hoping that there is information on Nimrod.
I would recommend this book for Christian readers who want Bible information 'fleshed out' and explained and about the sons of God, the Nephilim etc.
It's loaded with a lot of information on strange subjects in Scripture. The author has obviously done a lot of research and this book is a collection of appendices from his novels.
The information on the books of Enoch was very good as well as various interpretations of the "Sons of God".
I think the author's definition of "Elohim" is the best I have come across so far.
One aspect of this book that I appreciate a lot is that Mr. Godawa shows that there are differences in various translations of Scripture. The Septuagint differs significantly from the Masoretic in some passages.
Some of the subjects that really piqued my interest were:
+ Mt. Hermon as a locale for the Fall of Watchers and how Bashan relates to that area.
+ Satyrs and what they may have been. Verses on this subject demonstrate translational differences.
+ Ariels. What were they?
+ Rephaim and other clans.
+ Other possible identities for Nimrod.
+ The Name Yahweh.
+ The Book of Jasher.
I highly recommend this book on the subject of Giants in the Bible.
It's on par with Giants: Sons of the Gods
Godawa's collection of appendices from his fictional works are a treasure trove of information. It is well footnoted. He gives credit where credit is due. I enjoy his writing style as well. Enjoyment of this work is a matter of perspective. If one has an inquisitive mind, you will be rewarded. Skeptics on the other hand will think of it as fodder, and miss out on the real meat of the matter.
