Présentation de l'éditeur

Explains the links between the Bible and ancient Sumerian texts, probing the age-old question of the relationship between humanity and its creators.

• Challenges scientific maxims of the basis of human life.

• Draws fascinating parallels between the leaders of the Anunnaki (from the 12th planet) and Yahweh.

• A comprehensive new look at the history of man.

• First time available in hardcover.

In Divine Encounters Zecharia Sitchin draws on basic Judeo-Christian texts to analyze the creation myths, paralleling Biblical stories to the myths of Sumer and Mesopotamia in order to show that humanity did not evolve without assistance. Sitchin daringly hypothesizes instead that Enki, one of the leaders of the Anunnaki from the 12th planet, created humanity as a "primitive worker." Furthermore, Sitchin suggests that the extraterrestrial encounters of today demonstrate the continued interest of the Anunnaki in the Earthlings they created.

Biographie de l'auteur

Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Is doesn't matter at all whether it`s science, it still may be true... 5 août 2005

All books by Mr. Sictchin are very good and unusual, IMHO. But this one in a way surpases them by far. I shall not go into a detailed description of the contents but the last chapters of the book have striken me with their unorthodox approach and analysis. I shall give just one example - the meaning of the Hebrew word 'olam' (world, universe): this word appears a lot in the Bible, both by itself and in two strange combinations 'le-olam' ('for ever'!? what's the connection?) and 'me-olam' ('never') - this ethymology always looked queer to me - and here comes Mr. Sitchin and makes this 'space-time' connection simple and clear.

And at the end Mr. Sicthin tries to find out who really was the God of the Bible - and arrives to a conclusion you would never expect!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Yahweh Revealed? 18 mai 2008
Par Charles Malcolm - Publié sur
Divine Encounters is essentially a rehashing of Sitchin's earlier works, but this time with a renewed focus on whether encounters with ancient gods were divine or extraterrestrial in nature. The last chapter is the most interesting, because it is here that Sitchin finally addresses the question of whether or not Yahweh is one of the Anunnaki. This is a point Sitchin has previously been silent on, despite being able to associate almost every other ancient god with the Anunnaki. Surprisingly, Sitchin concludes that Yahweh is not just one of the Anunnaki, but in fact is the god of the Anunnaki. Is Sitchin being politically correct here so as not to upset the establish religious orthodoxy of present day Judaism? After all, it is one thing for Sitchin to suggest that Judaism has its roots in the pagan (let alone extraterrestrial) beliefs and practices of ancient Mesopotamia, it is quite another to suggest that Yahweh is just an extraterrestrial from another planet! Clearly, Sitchin seems to be playing it safe by concluding that Yahweh is not only the one true god of Judaism, but also the Anunnaki, and quite possibly of other worlds in the universe. However, if one looks closely at Sitchin's own writings, the evidence to decipher the identity of Yahweh can be found - it is none other than the Anunnaki god Enki. The reasoning is too long and complex to go into here, and I will leave it to the interested reader to do their own research, and reach their own conclusions. Regardless of whether you agree with Sitchin's theories or not, his theories are compelling, and he is without doubt one of the most fascinating writers of our time.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 INTERESTING BUT NOT HIS BEST 6 décembre 2000
Par Pieter Uys - Publié sur
An in-depth look at divine encounters (contacts, dreams, visions) from Sumerian, biblical and other ancient sources. This book does not have the flow of his Earth Chronicles but is interesting nevertheless. For many pages the author speculates about the Hebrew tribal deity YHWH and where it fits in amongst the Sumerian (Annunaki) gods - but the speculation is so endless that I must confess I cannot remember the conclusion he reached. Another great book in the same vein is Colin Wilson's From Atlantis to the Sphinx.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not on a par with Sitchin's earlier works 17 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
Generally an interesting book although not as illuminating as Sitchin's previous works. The entire book is tainted somewhat by Sitchin's conclusions as to the identity of Yahweh. Sitchin clearly allows his own religious beliefs to influence his conclusion in that regard. There is a complete lack of historical evidence to support Sitchin on this issue and despite his statement (p. 374) that his conclusion is "quite logical on reflection", it is in fact totally lacking in logic. Those who are truly interested in a thoughtful analysis of Yahweh's identity should direct themselves to Alan Alford's "Gods of the New Millenium".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great contribution to the series--stunning ending! 5 décembre 2007
Par David G. Eoff - Publié sur
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
This contribution to Sitchin's Earth Chronicles series would stand on its own as one of his most interesting books. But Sitchin really buries the lead in this book. The last chapter is called an endpaper, and is the most stunning of chapter of any of his books.

Without giving away the ending, Sitchin goes through the entire pantheon of ancient astronaut "gods" we've come to know through him and shows how the Yahway of the Old Testament isn't any of these figures. His unexpected conclusion is mind-boggling and really changes the meaning of all of his previous books. I don't know why this wasn't the thesis of one of his books, and is instead included as a footnote to this book.
