9781604776577: The Ninth Generation

THE NINTH GENERATION Conquering the Giants In the preflood world of unspoiled beauty, a Sethite tree-village is gripped by a strange terror. Another daughter has vanished from the valley. Tracks point to the south-a mysterious continental island-the land of the Nephilim giants. Methuselah's son, Lameck, is forced into a desperate rescue journey that turns romantic, but encounters supernatural opposition unleashed by the angelic adversary, Lucifer. Only Enoch-the one who walked with God-could free Lameck and prepare him to face and overcome the fortresses of evil. ____________________ For those who have ever tried to imagine what the earth was like before the Biblical flood- Step back into Genesis-the antediluvian earth that once existed-walk among the behemoths with Lameck, the father of Noah, who lived at the time of Adam. Learn wisdom through the creation, and faith from the fathers, while considering the mystery of the Nephilim and the most dreaded creature, Leviathan. Through Enoch, the glory of Heaven and horror of Hades are also glimpsed. But the greatest revelation to be gained is what the fathers knew about the blood sacrifice that continued from Eden to Calvary-the coming of the Conqueror. The Ninth Generation is more than a suspenseful adventure set in an epic time-frame of history. It contains the classical elements that are found in memorable stories-tragedy, love and redemption. While categorized as historical fiction, it follows the Genesis account and includes additional insights from early historical records and creation / flood research. It is a novel that is designed to entertain and reward in an edifying way.
