Descriptions du produit

Two years ago, Art MacKenzie was a respected newspaper journalist with a wonderful family and a bright future. Now he lives alone, fighting the temptation to drink and trying to survive as a freelance writer. His faith in God, humanity, and virtually everything else is gone. All that's left is a pile of bills and the ache of his son's death. Then comes the opening of the new wing of the multimillion-dollar Westwood Medical Center, the assignment to cover it... and a distraught patient's fantastic tale of alien abduction. So begins a media story with international implications - and more trouble than Mac has ever imagined.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book unnerves the readers more than they will admit... 21 décembre 1999
Par Jay Sever - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
It is very clear to me after reading through the reviews, "Nephilim" is quickly dismissed by those that want to believe their own innocent (and equally unprovable) ideas about UFOs... And it is loved by those that either simply enjoy good "fiction" or by those that have truly studied Biblical prophecy. Hmmmm... either way a book that is only loved or hated deserves to be read. In the case of "Nephilim", it unearths some possibilities that are intriguing.
I quickly dismiss the criticisms from the UFO lovers community because this book steps all over their romantic notions of UFOs. The fact that they hate it is all the more reason to read it.
For the Prophecy community, the more steeped in scripture you are the more slowly you will be apt to dismiss the theory surrounding the storyline. Nothing L.A. Marzulli comes up with in this book is able to be disproved by a sole on this planet.
Regarding the use of the Book of Enoch, don't be too quick to be offended... This book was found in the caves of Kumran along with the rest of the Old Testament books that sealed the near thousand-year gap from Christ's birth to the King James translation. It has massive credibility.
The Left Behind series has been excellent and biblically accurate reading so far. "Nephilim" goes one deep step further in attempting to answer the question that "Left Behind" seems to gloss over - how will those left behind be deceived regarding what really happened at the rapture?
Cheers Marzulli! For a first time effort, "Nephilim" is BRILLIANT!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Intriguing Idea 15 mars 2001

Nephilim is one of the better of the Christian-Fiction genre. I found it more engaging than the Left Behind series but not as good as The Oath by Frank Peretti. The premise is similar to other ancient-astronaut spin-offs but a few nice surprises along the way equal an overall good rating. I hope a sequel is in the making. For a serious look at the same subject I highly recommend Tom Horn's book, The Gods Who Walk Among Us, also available from Amazon.com

L. A. Marzulli, Nephilim: The Truth Is Here (Zondervan, 1999)

I have no idea what sort of odd conjunction has been having me reading so much Christian fiction this month. I had no idea what Nephilim was when I put it on hold at the library, and after picking it up and reading the back, I figured this would be an easy one: bite off fifty pages in an hour, hate it, throw it against the wall, write a scathing review of any Christian book that doesn't know how to correctly interpret Genesis 6:4 on its back cover.

More fool me.

Nephilim, which is an obvious satire on/parody of/homage to The X-Files given the subtitle, is the most subtle piece of Christian fiction I've read since the last time I picked up a Madeleine L'Engle novel. Marzulli's raison d'etre is to tell his story, and the preaching never once gets in the way of it, not even during the main character's conversion to Christianity halfway through the novel. This fact alone is enough to put it head and shoulders over most of the other modern Christian fiction I've found in my hands.

Second, it does address the differing interpretation of Genesis 6:4, and while the evidence used to back it up fills only a single paragraph in a four-hundred-fifty-page book, it's evidence that at the very least Marzulli realized that the interpretation he was using as the basis for the novel's action was controversial enough that he had to justify it at all.

Third, the novel does, in fact, have a plot. Art "Mac" MacKenzie is a former LA Times reporter who's been down on his luck since the death of his son, Art Jr. He's gotten divorced and turned into a hardcore drunk who gets just enough freelance assignments from the paper to pay the rent and keep him in Grand Marnier (those must be some nicely-paying freelance assignments; the guy buys it by the case). One day, the bone he gets thrown is to cover the opening of a new wing of a local hospital. While doing so, he hears rumors about the government keeping alien abductees on the sixth floor. What he finds when he sneaks back in sends him halfway around the world, unsure of whom to trust, to find out whether the so-called aliens are really extraterrestrials or demons working to subvert the second coming of Christ.

No, there's nothing new here in the wonderful world of the paranormal. Not that there usually is. But Marzulli's writing is solid and readable, his characters are well-enough drawn to at least make an attempt at three dimensions (well, most of them, anyway), and while the ending is predictable, that's only the case because of the novel's Christian slant (one assumes the author will not have his just-converted protagonist go breaking the seventh commandment at will, and one is not disappointed).

Certainly not the best book I've ever read in either the world of Christian fiction (L'Engle, of course, towers over most other authors of modern Christian fiction; she's easily in the same league with Francois Mauriac and his contemporaries) or paranormal/sci-fi action (early stuff by Greg Bear, especially Eon and Blood Music, are recommended for the Marzulli fan who wants to branch out), but it clicks very nicely on both levels, and left me wanting to read the other two books in the trilogy. ***

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can't Put It Down 17 octobre 2002
Par Richard D. Cappetto - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have been a UFO buff since my youth (around 30 years ago) and entered a quest (then) for the truth with an open mind. I read magazines and 100s of books on the subject, before I came to my own conclusion. My conclusion is much the same as the one that is expressed in This Book Nephilim; and it is obvious to me that the Author L. A. Marzulli has read the same kind of source materiel and documentary evidence that I have over the years; he has done his homework as one of the reviewers already said. On top of that this is an excellent book, its very exciting, and is like a roller costar ride from cover to cover. It also sets out to teach and I think does a great job at that. I won't give away the plot but I will say that those who have made up thre minds that UFOs our are friendly space brothers need to read this book desperately also I would say any and everyone interested in the UFO and Alien Phenomena should read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unique and exciting 17 juin 2004
Par Jackie Tortorella - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
What a great cross between science fiction and Christian fiction! I am hard to please in both genres, but Nephilim delivers good "aliens among us" suspense combined with a demonic plot to destroy Christianity. The main character "Mac" is a middle aged reporter who has lost his faith for the past two years following the death of his son and the breakup of his marriage. He has fled to the bottle for his comfort, and is on the brink of losing his damaged career entirely. Mac gets a chance for the story of his career, involving secret government installations and mysterious claims of alien abduction. He travels to Israel to see the remains of an almost-human giant referred to in the Bible as "Nephilim." His lukewarm interest turns into commitment to saving the world. The characterization is excellent. The plot is far-fetched, but hey--this is science fiction. So...get this book and sit back in your easy chair for an enjoyable mini-vacation!
