    Recommended for the open minded.

    The author seems to be putting together the suspicions of many people. It is a topic not touched on very much in mainstream, organized religions, probably because of the questions that will undoubtedly arise... especially in this more enlightened society.

    Flip flops are for beaches

    I was dismayed by the organization and contradictions within this book. At first, I felt the book was going to be full of evidentiary information. I do understand the subject of Nephilum is more controversial than simple science, but at least organize thoughts into easy to digest sections.

    For example, the author mentions that several ancient mythologies mention Giants, yet with the exception of the Greek titans, he does not give any other examples. Why did he not mention the legends of the ant people of the Hopi, or the Norse legends of Giants, and how they were said to be from the realm below the humans? Instead, he references several different viewpoints odd the same stories - those of the Bible and apocryphal texts.

    It is obvious the author attended a Seminary school, but does he have to bring it up with every other page? Yes, his education should place him a bit ahead of the curve for information regarding the Nephilum. But I felt he was doing more justification of his choice in writing about the subject than he was actually writing about the subject.

    Another thing that annoyed me was the contradictions within his own words. One minute, the Watchers are the "lesser gods" who decided to come down to the planet, the next, they are the demon spawn of the lesser gods, the spirit essences of the Nephilum. I know this is a controversial subject, but please make up your mind before writing about something what you are using as a definition.

    Along those same lines comes the proofreading. Translating Hebrew into English can be tricky; I understand this. But when, in the same sentence, the name of a city is spelled two different ways, it is obvious someone somewhere dropped the ball.

    I purchased this book believing it would be a great reference for my own interest in theological studies across several cultures. However, the purpose of this book is part. It is neither persuasive nor informative. The author seemed to not know where he wanted to go, so just filled gaps with his own philosophical journey.

    I do not know any more about the Nephilum now than before I read this book, and yet, I am certain with my ability to research, proofread and write concisely, I could do a much better job.

    This book was meticulously researched and the author does a very good job of bringing you from point A to point Z. Not written to impress, but written to put forth the fact that there is more to all of this than we have been taught and that we have been lead to read. An important contribution to this fascinating topic!

    O well

    He fails to mentiin thst middle esstern languages one being a postion of ststus and the othe referring numbers, sort of alludes to iy but misses a very mry point.

    He fails to mention thstt there is smple proof of giants. Most otherd define Nephiam as gianrs - appears the authers understsnding of Hebrew is wesk.

    Puts a lot of faith in Moshe being the author of thr Torah and thus it is slanted toeards zmoshe ego' but the writting shows something else.

    Within the first thirty pages or so the author showed his world view and i archieved the bbok. Might go finish after the Quran and afew oyhrr books.
