Présentation de l'éditeur

Nephilim Giants, Watchers, Archangels. This is Not Your Sunday School Noah’s Ark.



Noah Primeval is a speculative retelling of the beloved Genesis Bible story of Noah for a new generation. In an ancient world submerged in darkness, fallen angels called Watchers rule as gods and breed giants called Nephilim.



Mankind is enslaved to evil. Noah, a tribal leader, has been prophesied by his ancestor Enoch to bring an end to the rule of these Watcher gods and save humanity from coming destruction. But Noah’s wife and son are captives of these dark forces. To rise against this supernatural evil and rescue his family Noah will need an equally supernatural army. But why has God told him to build a huge box out of gopher wood?



Noah Primeval is the first book in the series, Chronicles of the Nephilim, that reveals an amazing storyline in the Bible that is too often missed: The War of the Seed, a battle between the Seed of Eve and the Seed of the Serpent. This spiritual war starts in the Garden of Eden and leads to the unholy hybrid giants of Genesis 6, the Nephilim. It affects every major Bible hero from Enoch all the way to Jesus Christ. When you read this series, many of the strange and bizarre oddities of the Bible will finally begin to make sense.



Learn About the Historical and Biblical Research Behind the Novel



There seems to be a Nephilim craze these days. A great interest in the Watchers and the Book of Enoch and Giants. Lots of books out there about the End Times and Nephilim in the modern day. But Noah Primeval and Chronicles of the Nephilim Biblical Fantasy Series tells the original story from the ancient past that all began with Genesis 6. Godawa shares the scholarly research that undergirds the fictional adventure. Noah Primeval has appendices that provide an explanation of Biblical concepts in the novel such as the sons of God, Watchers, Nephilim, Giants, Leviathan, and the ancient Mesopotamian Cosmography in the Bible.



Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology



Noah Primeval is written in the spirit of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, making it come alive in a new way, while staying true to the original spirit of the Bible story. It’s like filling in the story between the lines of what the Bible tells us.



ENDORSEMENTS



“Wizard schools and teen vampires are child’s play. This is the origin of sorcery and vampire tales. Noah Primeval will keep you on the edge of your seat with its primal struggle of good and evil. It reads like a Blockbuster movie!”
Ralph Winter, Producer, X-Men, Planet of the Apes

“A great, spiritual fantasy full of thought and imagination. The cinema-like action and suspense will keep you turning pages until you are finished, while the themes and concepts will remain long after you’re done.”
Bill Myers, Bestselling Author, The God Hater

“A stirring tale of gods and men that confronts us with biblical reality through mythical fantasy. Noah Primeval is what Tolkien called “sanctifying myth” that we need in our own place and time.”
Michael S. Heiser, PhD, Hebrew and Semitic Languages; Academic Editor, Logos Bible Software

“Imaginative yet well-researched. Such a fictional adaptation may be a big problem from some religious believers with strict views of the Bible, but in my book, Godawa brings to the surface the drama of the original story. He gives to us the Noah of the Bible in a fresh and provocative way.”
Peter Enns, PhD. Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Author Inspiration and Incarnation

I had listened to an interview with Godawa on Derek Gilbert's "View From The Bunker" webcast and it caught my interest. I'm about half-way through the book and can't put it down. Very well done. Good plot.

While I love the story so far, the theology is going to take some time to sort through. But, so far, I haven't found anything that contradicts scripture despite being a largely "extra-Biblical" novel. Godawa has woven scriptural principles throughout while combining Biblical, Apochryphal writings and an edgy reimagination of pre-flood Noah and the depraved world he lived in.

I would like to emphasize he paints a new picture of Noah compared to traditional views (which the Bible has not defined either, these traditional views are just tradition.) But, he does not redefine Biblical Principles of faith and righteousness and good and evil.

So far, I give it 5 stars.

Continued...After finishing the book, (I actually finished the book the day after I wrote the original review, sorry for the delay) I still love it. I would keep the 5 stars that I gave it half-way through.

It's a fast paced book that reads like a screen play. It left me wanting more, I think that's a good thing? For the past month I have been continuing research on the subjects of the novel, I appreciate the information and leads the author provided in the appendices. I love a book that brings something new to the table and this book left me with some concepts that I had to dig deeper and research. I probably will be looking into this stuff for a while.

I am looking forward to the next book in this series, I'll definitely read it.

Disclosure: I did receive an offer for 2 free Kindle versions of Noah Primeval for friends from the author for reviewing the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Get Peter Jackson to Direct the Movie 3 décembre 2011
Par Derek P. Gilbert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Brian Godawa transforms the grandfatherly, gray-bearded Noah of Sunday School stories into a warrior chief who'd give Conan the Barbarian a good fight and won't take orders from anyone -- not even Yahweh. Working with the little the Bible actually tells us about Noah the man, Godawa fills "Noah Primeval" with details that are admittedly speculative, but within the bounds of Christian theology.

And why not? The Bible has all of the elements a gifted author needs: Angels, demons, monsters, sorcerers, mighty kings, powerful warriors, gods, demigods, love, sacrifice, heroism, betrayal, and epic battles. Godawa's skill as a scriptwriter is evident; the novel unfolds like scenes on a big screen, and there are moments you will recognize as the place you'd stand and cheer in a movie theater.

Others have favorably compared "Noah Primeval" to "The Lord of the Rings", and I would as well. Imagine Methuselah and Tubal-Cain as Legolas and Gimli, and you have the idea.

It's a fresh and exciting take on a story we think we know. And for those who want more background, Godawa has included appendices in the back third of the book that delve into the mystery of the Nephilim and recent research into the Divine Council -- a concept that will change your understanding of the Old Testament.

Highly recommended, especially for teens who may appreciate Godawa's high-energy approach to the story -- enough, hopefully, to read the scholarly research into the history behind it.

Par Steve Taylor - Publié sur Amazon.com

I can't remember when I read a book that contained such an exciting story. It contained heroes, villains, monsters, demons, angels, adventure, suspense, thrills, war and a plot that is much more unpredictable then one would expect. The tag line is "This is not your Sunday School Noah's Ark" which is either a crack on Sunday School or a comment on how different this version really is. I think it's the latter. In this version Noah is a young man that is leader of a nomadic tribe that worships the True God (Elohim) and hides from the evil world that is controlled by fallen angels that have set themselves up as gods. Not only are the demons and demigods bad news the demons have mated with women to create the giant Nephilim and even bred animals with humans to create a superior race of soldiers. Noah and his small band are way outnumbered and outweaponed. Does this stop Noah? Read the book and find out.

As for the Biblical interpretations of Brian Godawa I'm not buying most of it (not because of Sunday School but because of my own research into the fascinating topic). He explains some things before the story starts and has given over 100 pages of theology at the end of the book to explain where he has received his viewpoints. I give him a hearty thumbs up for the explanations even though I disagree with a lot of them. Brian has also written an extensive and informative article entitled "Retelling Biblical Stories for a Modern Audience". The link on his website doesn't work but if you search the title it will come up. I suggest reading it if you question whether this book is for you (or even if you don't). In my opinion this book is more of a fantasy then reality but as any good Jewish/Christian fiction should be, God should be lifted up and evil exposed for what it really is. This book clearly does both of these.

Brian originally wrote this story as a screenplay but then decided to turn it into a book to get the interest going. To do this story as a movie correctly it would fall into the BIG budget category. When reading this book it's easy to picture it as a movie, however it would be more graphic then I would be willing to watch. It would be hard to keep the rating under NC-17 or at the R level. I didn't find the book necessarily graphic but what one can creatively work around in novel form it may not be so easy to do on the big screen.

Highly recommended.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the books page. In doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Noah Primeval: Chronicles of the Nephilim Book I 9 décembre 2011
Par Glenn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
A tremendous book on a subject that has interested me for years. Godawa has a great ability to capture the imagination and draw you in with what most likely is closer to the truth than what we have believed. It sheds new light on many puzzling passages of Scripture. It is a book that is hard to put down. Looking forward to more.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Very weak 14 mars 2012
Par Bernard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I honestly can't understand how so many people gave top ratings for this book.

Let me start by saying the author has some great conceptual ideas. The devil lies in the execution however.

The characters are hardly developed at all. Everybody acts and talks like they were modern-day Americans out of a Hollywood movie. An example ? Angelic beings dish out wisecracks and roll their eyes at their tasks. Noah is supposed to have lived 500 years but acts and talks like a 25 year old.

There are huge problems with the storytelling. Godawa spills out the beans right from the start. The nature of the vilains, their motivations, past history and goals, everything is revealed in the first chapters. The author seems to be in a great hurry. He rushes through the introduction, the descriptions, the combat, the dialogues, everything.

This is not a good book. Somebody mentioned Tolkien in a review. I am sorry but there is no comparison whatsoever. To give 5 stars to this book voids the whole rating system of its purpose.

I gave up on it before the end so maybe it suddendly gets a lot better but I doubt it.
