    Informative!

    I've been a believer all my life, and I'm impressed with the authors' biblical insight, their knowledge of Jewish history and culture, along with their ability to link extra-biblical eschatological sources along with scripture. I look forward to reading their next book.

    Disappointing

    As an evangelical protestant for many years, I have read several books relating to this theme. This one was disappointing on a couple of levels. The most obvious is that the text bears little relationship to the title. Devils/demons/nephilim is not addressed until halfway through the book, and accounts for maybe a fifth of the total text. The authors, although well-intentioned, I think, instead use this text as a primer for their forthcoming book(s). So, the title may be appropriate for the entire series, however long that turns out to be, but certainly not for this first volume. Secondly, the authors seem to have trouble staying on task...that is, the book jumps from point to point without any real cohesiveness. The early chapters deal with the various types of covenants, then they move to a brief treatment of the title topic, then on to festivals and the meaning of the Jewish menorah. All interesting in themselves, but it seems as though the authors felt that they had many different points to make, so they just put them all in one book with a catchy title and a promise to tie them all together in later books. Also, while the book makes some good points relating to the Jewishness of the scripture, the authors do make some assumptions that are either not completely accepted by the evangelical community or at least not fully proven. Finally, their use of the Book of Enoch from the apocrypha may be o.k. for historical use, but it is not part of the Holy Scripture and should not be treated as if it is. The authors seem to believe that it should be part of the Bible and it is only through the deviousness of some early Christians that it isn't. If God had wanted it to be included in the Scripture, He would have done so, relardless of the machinations of the Catholic Church or any other organization. In summary, the authors have, by their own admission, penned this as the first of at least two volumes and, they say, reading this first volume is apparently necessary to understand the following texts. Maybe, but as a stand alone book on devils/demons and nephilim, there are better ones available. If you want to read one book on the topic, this isn't it. There are much better ones out there, by better writers.
