Are there Giants, Gods, and Monsters in the Bible?
New Novel about Biblical Hero Enoch says, “YES!”

Brian Godawa, the award-winning screenwriter of To End All Wars, began a new saga series of Biblical fantasy novels last year with his release of Noah Primeval to phenomenally positive reviews across the internet and on Amazon.

The wait is over. The 2nd book in the saga Chronicles of the Nephilimis now available in paperback and on Kindle: Enoch Primordial.

Enoch Primordial is the prequel toNoah Primeval. It’s the story of Enoch, a wisdom sage called by God to pronounce judgment on the fallen angelic Watchers and their giant progeny, the Nephilim, before the Flood. It opens generations before Noah with the original fall of the Watchers from heaven and their secret plan to defy God and dominate the world. When Enoch’s parents are killed in an uprising of giants that threatens the land, he and his family escape to a secret hidden city where their ancestors Adam and Eve reside. Enoch and some of his family, including his wife and son Methuselah, will discover the secrets of the angels and embark on a journey that will take them through deserts, mountains, and the waters of the Abyss to fulfill a special calling as God’s first Giant Killers.

Talking Points for Enoch Primordial:

• The prequel to last year’s Noah Primeval about the world before the flood. Fallen angels, giants, sea dragons, ancient battles, romance, and God.

• A Biblical epic that uses the fantasy genre to express theological truth. Just like Lewis and Tolkien did.

• Maintains respect for the Biblical book of Genesis, while filling in some gaps with imagination based on Biblical images and metaphors.

• Partially based on the fascinating ancient Book of Enoch that is quoted favorably in the New Testament.

• The origin story of the fallen angels breeding giants that led up to the judgment of the Great Flood. Enoch was the first prophet to denounce them.

• Return of some characters from Noah Primeval, but in their younger years: The randy feisty Methuselah, the snarky archangel Uriel, as well as the villain fallen angels Semjaza and Azazel.

• An appendix that provides the interesting Biblical and ancient Near Eastern research behind the imagination in the novel.
