Présentation de l'éditeur

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 (1920-2010), an eminent Orientalist and biblical scholar, was born in Russia and grew up in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. A graduate of the University of London with a degree in economic history, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years prior to undertaking his life’s work--The Earth Chronicles.
One of the few scholars able to read the clay tablets and interpret ancient Sumerian and Akkadian, Sitchin based The Earth Chronicles series on the texts and pictorial evidence recorded by the ancient civilizations of the Near East. His books have been widely translated, reprinted in paperback editions, converted to Braille for the blind, and featured on radio and television programs.

Is doesn't matter at all whether it`s science, it still may be true... 5 août 2005
Par M. Sharkansky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
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!

Yahweh Revealed? 18 mai 2008
Par Charles Malcolm - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
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.

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.

Not on a par with Sitchin's earlier works 17 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
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".

Great contribution to the series--stunning ending! 5 décembre 2007
Par David G. Eoff - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.
