Publisher's Summary

The well-known and acclaimed work of Dr. Joseph Lumpkin has been enlarged to include new research on the Books of Enoch, Fallen Angels, the Watchers, and the Nephilim. After presenting extensive historical backgrounds and brilliant translations of The First, Second, and Third Books of Enoch, Lumpkin takes time to piece together a historical narrative of Fallen Angels, the Watcher, and the Nephilim, using his extensive knowledge of ancient texts.

The history of the fallen angels is sewn tightly together using such books as Enoch, Jasher, Jubilees, The Book of Giants, The War Scrolls, and many others. The story will astonish you.

New information on the First Book of Enoch is greatly expanded. Lumpkin describes the calendar of Enoch and its pivotal place in the prophecy of Daniel. He takes First Enoch apart, section by section, to describe its history, the time frame of authorship, and its contents. Copious notes are included throughout.

This volume, containing The First Book of Enoch (The Ethiopic Book of Enoch), The Second Book of Enoch (The Slavonic Secrets of Enoch), The Third Book of Enoch (The Hebrew Book of Enoch), and The Book of Fallen Angels, The Watchers, and the Origins of Evil. Expanded commentary is included for the three Books of Enoch, as well as the sections on angels, prophecies, and the Enochian calendar. These sources are found here, all in a single source.

Dr. Joseph Lumpkin is the CEO of Fifth Estate Publishers and the author of over 20 books. He appears regularly on LA talk radio and the show Rain Making Time as an expert guest on the subjects of religion, theology, and church history.

Look for other books by Joseph Lumpkin such as The Book of Jasher, The Book of Jubilees, Lost Books of the Bible, Banned from the Bible, and the Encyclopedia of Lost and Rejected Scriptures. A complete catalog can be seen at fifthestatepub.com.

Fascinating, intricate, ancient spiritual text

These are fascinating books for those familiar with the Christian Biblical texts and probably with Jewish or Islamic texts, but since I don’t know the latter two, I’ll only comment on the connection with the Christian Bible. The text and its Notes clearly point out similarities and many connections with canonical texts. I recommend these to someone who studies Biblical texts and are very familiar with them. Since either these texts or their sources obviously influenced the writers of the Bible, they are informative. It also was obvious to me why these would not have been acceptable to the church fathers who decided upon the Canon. If as a Christian I had to incorporate an understanding of these texts into my faith, that would be complicated and very difficult. Still it is interesting to see how Evil is described as being established on the earth, to hear an explanation of why there were giants, to be told of God’s displeasure with the “fallen angels” who became evil spirits, yet he allowed them to exist on the earth and draw humans into evil.

That being said, these are not books that would interest someone who is not familiar with, nor interested in, Biblical texts because they are mystic in nature and repetitive and full of almost impossible to pronounce names of human characters and of angels. For his smooth rendition of these hundreds of names (though sometimes different than what I grew up calling these characters), I commend the narrator Dennis Logan.

However, I was often distracted by Logan’s mispronunciation of common words, for example: prophesy or prophesied, Yea (as in “yea or nay”) pronounced as though it were yeah, quiescence, back and froth (instead of forth). These were mostly found in c 48A, but there were too many throughout the entire text.
Also, I disliked the too common repetition of phrases to improve the inflection or emphasis, but the first reading was not edited out. Proofing should have found and removed those repetitions.
The punching of words, and gaps between too-short phrases, made a staccato or percussive effect through the entire 17+ hours. It was easier to listen to the delivery at 1.5x speed or faster, in fact, 1.0 speed obviously was slowed down from the actual speed when recording. I don’t understand why that would be done.
The echo effect put me off at first, but as I realized it was used for titles and notes and parentheses, it was helpful to understand the text while listening, not able to see those textual elements. I wished it had less extension of the echo, which seemed inappropriate – didn’t fit with the nature of this scholarly translation of historical texts.

Completely Unlistenable

I made it through five minutes before I had to give up. The fact that the narrator mispronounces words constantly is something I could live with, the awful effects added were not.

I'm super disappointed because I really wanted to listen to this book, but until a competant narrator gives it a go that will unfortunately never happen.

Amazing!

Joseph Lumpkin has compiled very detailed yet easy to follow information he’s gathered to give a more complete story. The narrator Dennis Logan reads this story like he wrote it. I wish all of Joseph Lumpkins stories were read by Dennis Logan just because it’s a great pair! 6 out of 5

Very, Very Interesting

I really enjoyed this book. It was quite interesting and informative. To learn and contemplate the history involving Enoch and the many Angels. What each Angel stands for, the qualities and their background. I knew there were countless angels, but it was interesting to hear the names. I got whole lot of information from this book. For those who are interested in what this book lists as, The Angels, The Watchers and The Nephilim, then this book is a must read/listen.

Waste of time

This should be a good listen, an interesting listen, but there is no way I could tolerate another minute! Why is it narrated like this? Completely ruins it, and would go in the digital bin, or sent back for a refund!

Great for history buffs

I really enjoyed this it can be difficult to focus with such an amount of information. But will Really shed light on why the Abrahamic religions have such a confusing current state of faith and history. Just awesome for those who love history. Probably a nightmare for the religious

poorly read and pitiful structure to the book.

A mind numbingly boring book. Reader monotamous and utterly boring to listen to. No structure to the book. Did not finish. Gave up on it half way through.

An awesome book

I love the book of Enoch. I only wish it were a different reader. this reader's voice can become rather low and annoying.

Long winded

So many biblical references you lose track of the story which is Enoch’s record of his history
