Makes me want to read the series

I wasn't aware of "The Chronicles of the Nephelim" series, but now I want to read them all. This had been one of the richest books I've ever read. Full of imagination, solid research and truth. I'm glad that people like Brian are using their gifts to show us the mostly hidden storyline of the Bible and the"cosmic war of the seed"!

Thought this would be more about the Giants

This book had all the makings of an interesting story but kept repeating the same passages of the bible and book of Enoch. It had its good points but at times was like a boring lecture.

great truths

i ve already hear from the previous series all the appendix and im pretty much convinced maybe with few ? marks that all of these are facts and all is for the final battle onto Gods Glory and those that have been elected by His grace to be part of His victory and rejoice for ever in His presence! Amen.

very disappointing

very disappointing. nothing new about the Nephilim no conclusions about the Book of Enoch. This seemed to be about selling his other Titles. Which I will not be buying.

i needed more

After reading the book Noah Primeval this was the second book I purchased. Brian Godawa has a way of creating an explosion of questions as you read his novels. I needed answers and he provided the resources. When Giants Were Upon the Earth is a fascinating book for information. It is one that I’ve actually listen to multiple times and finally had to purchase just to satisfy my need for more knowledge. this book is not one that you will buy read and put on the shelf and be done with. It’s become part of my study toolbox. I highly recommend it along with all the other resources at Brian Godawa.com

Untenable Conclusions

The author reaches untenable conclusions at certain points of his discussions. He seems to grasp for straws that seem to have little foundation outside of the literal interpretation of the scriptures. I couldn't continue the book once I figured out that his summations were skewed and antithetical to the original meaning of the truth of the scriptures. It started out OK but eventually took nosedive.
