Publisher Comments:

In this companion book to the Earth Chronicles series, Zecharia Sitchin takes the tale of Man and gods a major step farther. Having shown that humanity did not transit from hominids to Homo sapeins unaided and that the Anunnaki, in need of workers, jumped the gun on evolution through genetic engineering, Sitchin now tackles the delicate issue of human-divine contacts and probes the age-old question of the awkward relationship between humanity and its creator(s).

The book encompasses biblical tales of Enoch, who was taken to the celestial abode; the theophany at Mount Sinai; Sumerian tales of Adapa, who was taken to another planet; and Egyptian pyramid texts of heavenly flights. Sitchin cites instances of oracular dreams and three-dimensional visions as some of the means whereby Man was given access to extraterrestrial secret knowledge. He furthermore suggests that the continued interaction between Anunnaki and Earthlings can explain today's UFO phenomena.

Sitchin's research and fact-filled theories, illustrated with ancient artifacts and modern maps, chronicle a magnificent and inspiring journey through history, from the dawn of time into the new millennium.

Zecharia Sitchin (1920-2010) was born in Russia and raised in Palestine, where he acquired a profound knowledge of modern and ancient Hebrew, other Semitic and European languages, the Old Testament, and the history and archaeology of the Near East. He is distinguished by his ability to translate and interpret ancient Sumerian and other ancient texts. A graduate of the University of London, he worked as a journalist and editor in Israel for many years before making his home in New York City.

Synopsis:

"Divine Encounters" draws on basic Judeo-Christian texts to analyze the creation myths, paralleling Biblical stories to the myths of Sumer and Mesopotamia, in order to show that humanity did not evolve without assistance.
