    The Windows of Heaven is a 5 novel epic retelling of the Biblical account of Noah and the Flood The epic s premise is that much of the Sumero Akkadian mythology and language is revisionist history by a polytheistic people Author K G Powderly Jr seeks to creatively rediscover the pre Flood world by unraveling the corruptions committed by later post Flood peoples Powderly has certainly done his research Drawing together the Biblical account with findings from archaeology particularly out of place artifacts, or OOPArts technology that should not exist among primitive peoples as far as the evolutionary version of history is concerned , apocryphal works like the Ethiopic Enoch 1 Enoch , Slavonic enoch 2 Enoch , the Lamech Fragment of the Genesis Apocryphon, historical works such as Beowulf and Josephus Antiquities , and Sumero Akkadian myths, he creates a possible pre Flood world full of intrigue, tragedy and adventure Some folks will be put off by the fact that elements from apocryphal works, the Talmud, and polytheistic myths are used to flesh out Biblical details I d like to underscore a point that the author makes in the Appendix This is a work of exploratory fiction The Biblical creationist assumption of history is that other myths and religions are derivative corruptions of the pure history of the Bible As such, it makes sense to attempt to incorporate elements from early myths under the assumption that they contain a core of Biblical truth While the Book of Enoch is apocryphal, meaning that it is not part of the Biblical canon and therefore not inerrant, it is quoted from in the New Testament and is considered important to understanding the Bible The bottom line is, of course, that this is a work of fiction and that the author intends to honor God, the authority of the Bible and the veracity of Biblical history So give it the benefit of the doubt and keep in mind that you re reading what might have been, but not necessarily what was Some may find the names used in this series distracting at first You re not reading about Noah his name is A Nu Ahki, a Seer Prince of the line of Seth Q Enukki That s Enoch Muhet Usalaq is Methuselah And so on Inevitably, you find yourself translating the book as you read it I found this a little difficult at first, but as I quickly got engrossed in the story, I forgot I was doing so at all One of the advantages of the name changes is that you get to read the story on its own merits This book is not for younger teens It contains frank discussion of sexual sin, a character s sexual disfunction within marriage, and accounts of the horrors of war One could argue that these elements also appear in our Bibles a valid point , but there is also a vision scene near the end that is disturbing on a level that reminds me of similar elements in Peretti and Dekker s House I enjoyed House just as I enjoyed this book , but I wouldn t recommend that a younger teen read it Now down to brass tacks Powderly has given us an awesome novel Most of this book takes place against the backdrop of a war between the giants of Samyaza and the titans of Lumekkor, who each claim to be descendants of the new gods, fallen angels It is not a war between primitive peoples with swords, spears and arrows There are zeppelins, rockets, guns, airplanes and even a tank that looks like an Anklyosaur And, yes, swords, spears and arrows also Powderly admits that the level of technology my novels attribute to the pre Deluvians is purely fictional They were not cavemen, but they need not have had flight, electricity, and other exotic technologies I have given some of them for this story But they do make for a fun read I also love the way he incorporated pre Flood dinosaurs into the story Dinosaur is of course a modern word, so Powderly uses ancient terms for these beasties, using some of creationist Bill Cooper s research from After the Flood Powderly gives us behemoths sauropods , amphipteres non crested pterodactyls , gryphons pteranodons , cockatrice sickle clawed raptors , firedrakes Parasaurolophus , marsh drakes duck billed hadrosaurs , gryndels T rex , unicorns Monoclonius , tricorns Triceratops , wyverna horned or crested carnosaurs and vulch gryphons Quetzalcoatlus which is to say he doesn t skimp on the dinosaurs Look for one scene that definitely plays homage to Beowulf Powderly also has a take on Cyclops and Cherubs that I found intriguing Powderly s Noah, A Nu Ahki is a likeable and believable protagonist The story line takes us through adventure, peril and tragedy Ultimately, it paints a convincing picture of how a world of fallen men infested with the offspring of fallen angels became a world so corrupt that God judged it with a world covering Flood Parts of Dawn Apocalypse Rising are also polemic in nature Powderly does an excellent job of using the pre Flood world as a foil to examine our own time which is only right if the last days will indeed be as the days of Noah I definitely recommend Dawn Apocalypse Rising and I can t wait to start reading the next book in The Windows of Heaven You can buy this book on or find out about the series at

    Reading this book is not like reading the biblical narratives that we are used to Powderly uses both familiar biblical texts and ancients works to bring about a story that is raw, in your face, and a plausible view of the world before the Flood.One thing that struck me in this book was the correlation between the long life times of our ancestors and their increase in technology The technology, as the book projects, is different from what we see but it is still advanced in ways not too dissimilar from our own As I read the book, it struck me that since our fathers lived long lives, it would make sense they would develop sciences, ideologies, and probe their world as they do now An aspect some may like is the angelic rebellion The all controversial verse of the sons of God taking women of earth For a long time, I held a view that the sons of God were the godly line of Seth But as Powderly opened up the world of his imagination and what he gleaned from his research, the idea isn t as far fetched as I once thought There s a scene when God is talking to the angels and tells them they were not created for the desire of women The reason why they would desire women is brought forth in the book as well I d never thought of it this way and it leaves me intrigued.Another aspect how Powderly uses the mass amnesia this world has The people before the Flood were closer to Eden, as it were, than we are today So the idea one could travel and see the Garden of Eden is absolutely fantastic The encounter with the Angel guarding the Garden I thought was spectacular Imagine being able to see Eden for yourself, even from a distance Yet, as time went on they forgot There s a scene in the book, right before the Seth character dies of him speaking of his mother, the Mother of us all She remarks about how little her offspring understood of world and how it is wrecked The scene replays in my mind long after I finished the book Adam and Eve knew the earth in perfection To see it wasted must have been horrific.Lastly, which brings me back to the point of angels, is the integration of angels and man as perceived in Powderly s world It is commonplace in the book The angels are sometimes worshiped but their presence, in various forms, and their offspring, are normal This, of course, is not seen in today s world Another thing I have to think about Even the way before the Flood, if as Powderly s book seems to suggest, the people were able to see God in ways we can only fathom To feel His presence in a tangible way that we can t comprehend The book is richly detailed and the Noah character is one you can relate to It will take a bit to get used to some of the words and terminology because Powderly uses different names for the biblical characters we are familiar with Having said all that, I think you will enjoy this take on the Creation story and the world right before the Flood A fascinating read and a great story.
