Overview

The Forefather and Patriarch You Thought You Knew.


After the Great Flood, the giant king Nimrod builds the Tower of Babel and unites the world in rebellion against the Creator.


But God has other plans. He causes the confusion of languages and disperses Nimrod's kingdom upon the earth. He then chooses a simple nomad Abraham as next in the line of the Seed of Promise.


But Nimrod is not dead. He sets out on a course of revenge to find Abraham and kill him in order to thwart God’s plan forever.


Abraham is in the land of Canaan, a land that is filled with the Nephilim giants of Genesis 6, and the Watchers rule as gods. And Sodom and Gomorrah is the flashpoint for the Watchers’ next diabolical plan. The Seed of the Serpent vs. the Seed of Promise.


The War of the Seed is rising.


Part of the Biblical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Nephilim


Abraham Allegiant is the fourth book of the Biblical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Nephilim, an epic story that begins with Enoch and Noah and tells the Biblical storyline of the Genesis 6 Nephilim giants, hybrid offspring of the angelic Watchers mating with human women.


In Abraham Allegiant, you’ll discover:


• The true identity of the Mighty Hunter Nimrod from the Bible.


• The legendary Semiramis, Nimrod’s ravishingly beautiful and cunningly ruthless queen.


• The fascinating rise and fall of the infamous Tower of Babel from Genesis.


• The heart stirring romance between Abraham and Sarah.


• What really happened to Sodom and Gomorrah.


Though Abraham Allegiant can be read on its own, the reader will have a much more rich experience reading the book within the Chronicles of the Nephilim Biblical Fantasy Series. Everything is connected. Everything.


Learn About the Historical and Biblical Research Behind the Novel


Author Godawa shares the scholarly research that undergirds the fictional adventure. Abraham Allegiant has an appendix that explores the Biblical and historical background of the ancient Book of Jasher mentioned in the Bible, the Tower of Babel, Nimrod and Semiramis, Sodom and Gomorrah and other Biblical oddities.


Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology


Abraham Allegiant 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 connecting the dots and filling in the story between the lines of what the Bible tells us.


A NOTE ON THE AGE APPROPRIATENESS OF THE NOVELS


Some Christians have asked what “rating” the novels have in terms of the portrayal of sex and violence. I would say the series is rated PG-13. The Chronicles do deal with evil behaviors that would be appropriate for mature teens and above. The violence in the Chronicles is like the book of Judges. The sexuality is like Song of Solomon, alluded to poetically, but obviously. The description of sexual evil is like Ezekiel 16, sometimes shocking, but never glorified. There is an occasional profane word or vulgarity like in Ezekiel 23, revealing spiritual wickedness
