Video Lecture by Brian Godawa

Many Christians are afraid to attribute truth value to ancient books outside the canon of the Bible. They fear that somehow the authority of Scripture will be compromised or worse, other texts may be falsely considered as Scripture. The book of 1 Enoch is one of those controversial books that has a long history of squabbling over its veracity and influence on Bible interpretation. This talk will be an introduction to the ancient book of 1Enoch, its content, its history, its affirmation in the New Testament, and its acceptance and rejection by the Christian Church.

$39 videos
$29 audio

There are so many Christians teaching outrageous things about Bible Prophecy these days. It’s enough to frustrate the serious Bible student. What would you think if you found out most all of it is simply mistaken? What if you found out that the ancient mindset of the Jewish writers was influenced by the Old Testament imagery of the past, and not a crystal ball gaze into our modern future? What if you found out that everything that modern prophecy pundits are looking for, Antichrist, The Beast, the Tribulation, the Rapture, was not what they thought it was, but something different?

These lectures of Bible Prophecy and the End Times deconstructs the popular “Left Behind” interpretation and reveals a redemptive historical preterist view of the Book of Revelation and the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24.

Includes lots of colorful and helpful Powerpoint visuals, charts, pictures, and film clips for a much richer presentation of the material.

Enoch Primordial

Chronicles of the Nephilim the Lost Book Two
Biblical Epic Fantasy Novel by Brian Godawa

Before Noah, there was Enoch. Holy Man. Wise Sage. Giant Killer.

“Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.” That’s all the ancient manuscript of Genesis tells us about this enigmatic holy man of the primeval generation.

Another ancient Book of Enoch tells us that he pronounced judgment on the fallen Watchers and their progeny, the Nephilim giants of Genesis chapter 6. What if that holy calling meant that Enoch was a giant killer?

This second novel in the series The Chronicles of the Nephilim is a prequel to Noah Primeval that tells the story of the Fall of the Watchers and the rise of the Nephilim many generations before the Flood.

You’ll meet some of the beloved characters from Noah Primeval when they were much younger, including Methuselah and Uriel, as well as the origin stories of the lead Watcher gods, Anu and Inanna.

An appendix provides some of the Biblical and ancient Near Eastern research behind the mythopoeia in the novel.

In this companion volume to Joshua Valiant, the story of the conquest of the Promised Land of Canaan continues. Moses has died, the Israelites stand poised to invade Canaan. Their first target: The impenetrable mighty walls of Jericho.

But God has been preparing a pagan harlot named Rahab to help Israel. They soon discover through prophecy that she is a crucial link to God’s plan of redemption for the Seed of Abraham. And she has fallen in love with an Israelite warrior whose child she bears.

Unfortunately, the Anakim giants of Canaan have also discovered Rahab’s identity and have sent assassins to take her out.

Now Joshua and Caleb must protect Rahab at the same time as they assault the Anakim stronghold and face the tallest, most ruthless of all giants: The brothers Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai. Worse yet, the patron deity of the Anakim is the storm god Ba’al. They’re going to need the archangels help or they haven’t got a chance.

David Ascendant

Chronicles of the Nephilim Book Seven
Biblical Epic Fantasy Novel by Brian Godawa

Six Giant Assassins. One Target: King David. Goliath Was Only the First.

Everyone knows the story of David. Or so you think. No one has heard it told this way before.

In the days of Samuel the Seer, the Philistines are at the climax of a long war with Israel over the land of Canaan. There are still giants in Philistia left from Joshua’s search and destroy mission of holy war generations earlier. Their numbers have grown.

The young Philistine giant warrior Goliath steals the sacred ark of the covenant from Israel. But Yahweh’s curse upon Goliath’s people for that deed sets in motion an obsession of revenge and the creation of an elite warrior gang of giants, The Sons of Rapha, whose sole ambition is to kill the promised messiah king of Israel.

The only problem is, Israel’s King Saul is not that chosen one, because he is possessed by the evil spirit of an ancient malevolent ruler who seeks to kill that same unknown and spiritually anointed king.

They both discover it is David, son of Jesse, a young insignificant shepherd musician who woos the girls, and who miraculously slays Goliath in a battle contest. But now David is running for his life from both family and foe, gathering outlaws as allies, and eventually hiding in the one place no one would ever dream of: Goliath’s home town, the Philistine city of Gath.

With David in the Serpent’s lair, the queen of Gath trying to seduce him, King Saul and the Philistine giants trying to assassinate him, and David’s three wives all vying for his attention, this gritty romantic action adventure story will take you places in the Bible you’ve never seen before.

You think you know how it ends. But there is so much more to the story than you ever realized.

Biblical Epic Fantasy Novel by Brian Godawa

A Theological Novel of Christ’s Victory Over the Powers

The story of Christ like you’ve never heard it before. Told through the eyes of the two thieves on the cross and the spiritual warfare hidden from mortal men.
It starts with the temptation in the desert by Satan and ends with Christ’s descent into Hades, his resurrection and his ascension. In between, we see Jesus’ ministry in the context of the Biblical motif of Christ taking back the inheritance of the nations from the rebellious Sons of God. The demons that rose up in that day were not random but were evil spirits with a purpose, part of a comprehensive battle strategy between Christ and the Powers. When it comes to spiritual warfare, Jesus was no pacifist.
Jesus Triumphant explains why most people misunderstood the deliverer to be a worldly warrior king instead of the suffering Servant he was. He was a warrior, but it was a war they could not see with mortal eyes. In Jesus Triumphant, we now see it.

Diversity in higher education has been defined in terms of race, gender and class. Critics say this has resulted in a new tyranny of anti-Western prejudice. They claim education has turned into indoctrination of political ideology that undermines the university’s goal of intellectual diversity and freedom. Supporters say this is a triumph over white European patriarchy that has unfairly dominated and distorted education with a Western prejudice. They reveal an underlying systemic structure of oppression against minorities in traditional definitions of “knowledge.” Who is right? Who is wrong? Where does the truth lie?
