Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Brian Godawa has been a professional filmmaker, writer, and visual artist for many years. His creative versatility was born of a passion for both intellect and imagination, both left-brain and right-brain. The result: Brian is an artisan of word, image, and story that engages heart, mind, and soul. Just think, “Renaissance Man.” Brian Godawa is the screenwriter for the award-winning feature film, To End All Wars, starring Kiefer Sutherland, and Alleged, starring Brian Dennehy as Clarence Darrow and Fred Thompson and William Jennings Bryan. He previously adapted to film the best-selling supernatural thriller novel The Visitation by author Frank Peretti for Ralph Winter (X-Men, Planet of the Apes), and wrote and directed several documentaries, including Wall of Separation for PBS. Mr. Godawa’s scripts have won multiple awards, and his articles on movies and philosophy have been published around the world. He has traveled around the United States teaching on movies, worldviews, and culture to colleges, churches, and community groups. His popular book, Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films with Wisdom and Discernment has been released in a revised edition from InterVarsity Press and is used as a textbook in schools around the country. His book Word Pictures: Knowing God Through Story and Imagination (IVP) addresses the power of image and story in the pages of the Bible to transform the Christian life. His main website is www.godawa.com.

Love it 17. November 2011
Von JAH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I had listened to an interview with Godawa on Derek Gilbert's "View From The Bunker" webcast and it caught my interest. I'm about half-way through the book and can't put it down. Very well done. Good plot.

While I love the story so far, the theology is going to take some time to sort through. But, so far, I haven't found anything that contradicts scripture despite being a largely "extra-Biblical" novel. Godawa has woven scriptural principles throughout while combining Biblical, Apochryphal writings and an edgy reimagination of pre-flood Noah and the depraved world he lived in.

I would like to emphasize he paints a new picture of Noah compared to traditional views (which the Bible has not defined either, these traditional views are just tradition.) But, he does not redefine Biblical Principles of faith and righteousness and good and evil.

So far, I give it 5 stars.

Continued...After finishing the book, (I actually finished the book the day after I wrote the original review, sorry for the delay) I still love it. I would keep the 5 stars that I gave it half-way through.

It's a fast paced book that reads like a screen play. It left me wanting more, I think that's a good thing? For the past month I have been continuing research on the subjects of the novel, I appreciate the information and leads the author provided in the appendices. I love a book that brings something new to the table and this book left me with some concepts that I had to dig deeper and research. I probably will be looking into this stuff for a while.

I am looking forward to the next book in this series, I'll definitely read it.

Disclosure: I did receive an offer for 2 free Kindle versions of Noah Primeval for friends from the author for reviewing the book.

Get Peter Jackson to Direct the Movie 3. Dezember 2011
Von Derek P. Gilbert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Brian Godawa transforms the grandfatherly, gray-bearded Noah of Sunday School stories into a warrior chief who'd give Conan the Barbarian a good fight and won't take orders from anyone -- not even Yahweh. Working with the little the Bible actually tells us about Noah the man, Godawa fills "Noah Primeval" with details that are admittedly speculative, but within the bounds of Christian theology.

And why not? The Bible has all of the elements a gifted author needs: Angels, demons, monsters, sorcerers, mighty kings, powerful warriors, gods, demigods, love, sacrifice, heroism, betrayal, and epic battles. Godawa's skill as a scriptwriter is evident; the novel unfolds like scenes on a big screen, and there are moments you will recognize as the place you'd stand and cheer in a movie theater.

Others have favorably compared "Noah Primeval" to "The Lord of the Rings", and I would as well. Imagine Methuselah and Tubal-Cain as Legolas and Gimli, and you have the idea.

It's a fresh and exciting take on a story we think we know. And for those who want more background, Godawa has included appendices in the back third of the book that delve into the mystery of the Nephilim and recent research into the Divine Council -- a concept that will change your understanding of the Old Testament.

Highly recommended, especially for teens who may appreciate Godawa's high-energy approach to the story -- enough, hopefully, to read the scholarly research into the history behind it.

Boatloads Of Stuff Great Stories Are Made Of 7. Februar 2012
Von Steve Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I can't remember when I read a book that contained such an exciting story. It contained heroes, villains, monsters, demons, angels, adventure, suspense, thrills, war and a plot that is much more unpredictable then one would expect. The tag line is "This is not your Sunday School Noah's Ark" which is either a crack on Sunday School or a comment on how different this version really is. I think it's the latter. In this version Noah is a young man that is leader of a nomadic tribe that worships the True God (Elohim) and hides from the evil world that is controlled by fallen angels that have set themselves up as gods. Not only are the demons and demigods bad news the demons have mated with women to create the giant Nephilim and even bred animals with humans to create a superior race of soldiers. Noah and his small band are way outnumbered and outweaponed. Does this stop Noah? Read the book and find out.

As for the Biblical interpretations of Brian Godawa I'm not buying most of it (not because of Sunday School but because of my own research into the fascinating topic). He explains some things before the story starts and has given over 100 pages of theology at the end of the book to explain where he has received his viewpoints. I give him a hearty thumbs up for the explanations even though I disagree with a lot of them. Brian has also written an extensive and informative article entitled "Retelling Biblical Stories for a Modern Audience". The link on his website doesn't work but if you search the title it will come up. I suggest reading it if you question whether this book is for you (or even if you don't). In my opinion this book is more of a fantasy then reality but as any good Jewish/Christian fiction should be, God should be lifted up and evil exposed for what it really is. This book clearly does both of these.

Brian originally wrote this story as a screenplay but then decided to turn it into a book to get the interest going. To do this story as a movie correctly it would fall into the BIG budget category. When reading this book it's easy to picture it as a movie, however it would be more graphic then I would be willing to watch. It would be hard to keep the rating under NC-17 or at the R level. I didn't find the book necessarily graphic but what one can creatively work around in novel form it may not be so easy to do on the big screen.

Highly recommended.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the books page. In doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.

Noah Primeval: Chronicles of the Nephilim Book I 9. Dezember 2011
Von Glenn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A tremendous book on a subject that has interested me for years. Godawa has a great ability to capture the imagination and draw you in with what most likely is closer to the truth than what we have believed. It sheds new light on many puzzling passages of Scripture. It is a book that is hard to put down. Looking forward to more.

Noah is not a nursery decoration 20. Januar 2012
Von Michelle Van Loon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
We've turned a story of a flesh-and-blood man standing apart from his own decaying culture into a nursery decoration.

Brian Godawa has torn the cutesy pastel version of the Noah story off of the nursery wall in an attempt to help modern-day readers remember that Noah and his family were three dimensional people struggling to live counter-cultural, obedient lives in the years leading up to the flood. Noah Primeval: Chronicles of the Nephiliim (Embedded Pictures Publishing, 2011) is definitely not your Sunday School teacher's Noah story.

Godawa, a respected screenwriter and author, pondered the inciting events described in Genesis 6:1-4 that led to God's decision to flood the world he'd created. Who were these characters and what was the nature of the evil that existed on the earth? I've never heard a sermon about Nephiliim or the mysterious Sons of God who hooked up with human women, have you?

Noah Primeval tells the story of the final days of the human rebellion against God before the flood. Noah's family is under assault and eventually separated by the bloodlust of the idolatrous human (and not-quite-human) warring tribes of his day; he struggles to keep his faith in Elohim, the one true God, especially as his losses mount. Blood-lust, orgies, idol worship and violence - lots and lots of violence - fill the world in which Noah and his family live. Noah is not serenely building his ark and gathering animals two-by-two as the story opens:

"(Noah) walked upright and kept separate from the pollution of the city gods who came from heaven and sought to mix their blood with humanity. Noah's tribe and the other human tribes of the West refused to worship these pretenders to the throne of Elohim, and refused to participate in their corrupting sorceries.

"But this was not enough for Noah. Though he knew Elohim was Lord of creation, he sometimes felt that there was little difference between the servitude Elohim expected and the servitude that the city gods demanded of their subjects. A god was a god after all, and in either case man was a servant.

"Noah did not like being a servant. He yearned for freedom in his breast."

Freedom for Noah came at a very high cost. Nephilim assassins - half-man, half-god - were sent by the ruling god and goddess of the land to consolidate their power and kill the Chosen One, Noah, to foil the revelation of the one true God. The rotting culture and the supernatural characters and practices of these gods and their "associates" scattered Noah's family and forced him to action.

Godawa really knows how to tell a story! The epic nature of Noah's journey hints at Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings without being derivative. I could not stop clicking through the 268 pages of Noah Primeval (I read the Kindle version, which is my favorite way to read fiction), and I am not even a fan the speculative fiction/fantasy genre.

Even though Bible readers already know how Noah's story goes, I'd guess that few of us have ever spent much time imagining his life "pre-ark". Godawa's narrative shattered my own un-considered illustion that Noah and his family were living in some isolated valley building the ark for 120 years before the rain started falling and falling and falling. Though I enjoyed the story, the non-fiction reader in me especially appreciated the nearly 100 pages of appendices at the end of the book. He includes extremely well-researched discussions providing an overview on current academic thinking about the Sons of God, Nephiliim, Leviathan, and Mesopotamian Cosmic Geography in the Bible. (The latter is just about worth the price of the whole book, in my opinion.) These appendices helped me think through the truths in the fiction I'd just finished reading.

If you're a spec fiction/fantasy fan, I'd definitely recommend Noah Primeval to you. And if you're not, you may just want to add this to your reading list anyway.
