Hollywood Screenwriter Pens Controversial Novel: Noah Primeval,
Did God Wipe Out a Race of Giants with the Flood?
LOS ANGELES, CA (EPB) - Brian Godawa, the award-winning screenwriter of To End All Wars, says, “The most bizarre passage in the Bible that I never understood was Genesis 6:1-4 about what led up to the Great Flood. I mean, angels mating with humans and creating giants? What is that all about? Can that be real?”
But when the author of the popular book Hollywood Worldviews studied the passage in depth, Godawa soon discovered that not only was it real, but it was an important narrative thread that weaves through the Bible all the way to the New Testament. The Nephilim giants of the Bible have been a hot debate by scholars and religious leaders through history. In his research, Godawa found new insight into the ancient Near East that sheds light on this controversy.
Godawa decided to write a Biblical fantasy novel, similar in vein to The Lord of the Rings, about this wild discovery. That novel is titled Noah Primeval. It’s the first in a series called Chronicles of the Nephilim and is now available in e-book and paperback formats on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.
Noah Primeval is a fantasy retelling of the beloved story of Noah for a new generation. In an ancient world of darkness, fallen angels breed giants and enslave mankind to evil. Noah, a tribal warrior, has been prophesied to save humanity from the coming destruction of the world. But Noah’s wife and son are captives of these dark forces – and he’s not going anywhere without them.
Godawa is known as an author who both entertains and educates. He has included special appendixes in the book that explain the Biblical research behind the novel such as the Sons of God, the Nephilim, Leviathan, and the ancient Near Eastern Biblical worldview. Reputable Biblical scholar and author of the book Inspiration and Incarnation, Peter Enns calls the novel, “Imaginative yet well-researched.”
Noah Primeval joins a growing body of creative output from those in Hollywood who are examining Biblical stories and themes including the forthcoming films Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, Scott Derrickson’s Goliath, and producer Dan Lin’s Moses.
The novel is already getting the praise from scholars and Hollywood heavyweights alike…
“Wizard schools and teen vampires are child’s play. This is the origin of sorcery and vampire tales. Noah Primeval will keep you on the edge of your seat with its primal struggle of good and evil. Supernatural fiction, fantasy, and Biblical speculation all as a cinematic novel. It reads like a blockbuster movie!”
- Ralph Winter (X-Men, Planet of the Apes)
“Anyone who has read the Lord of the Rings trilogy has silently mused about how fantastic it would be if it were all real—a place on earth that transcended our own mundane reality, a time when the unseen world was tangible. Noah Primeval made me stop wishing and start believing. Brian Godawa re-imagines the supernatural storyline of the Biblical Noah blended with Mesopotamian epics. The result is a stirring tale of gods and men that confronts us with biblical reality through mythical fantasy. Noah Primeval is what Tolkien called “sanctifying myth” that we need in our own place and time.”
