Divine Encounters: A Guide to Visions, Angels, and Other Emissaries
Publisher : Inner Traditions/Bear & Company
Description
Explains the links between the Bible and ancient Sumerian texts, probing the age-old question of the relationship between humanity and its creators.


• Challenges scientific maxims of the basis of human life.


• Draws fascinating parallels between the leaders of the Anunnaki (from the 12th planet) and Yahweh.


• A comprehensive new look at the history of man.


• First time available in hardcover.


In Divine Encounters Zecharia Sitchin 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. Sitchin daringly hypothesizes instead that Enki, one of the leaders of the Anunnaki from the 12th planet, created humanity as a "primitive worker." Furthermore, Sitchin suggests that the extraterrestrial encounters of today demonstrate the continued interest of the Anunnaki in the Earthlings they created.





Praise and Reviews
"Exciting . . . credible . . . most provocative and compelling."
Library Journal

"Sitchin is a zealous investigator into man's origins . . . a dazzling performance."
Kirkus Reviews

"An extremely thought-provoking book that chronicles the fascinating history we humans have. . . . Sitchin shows us how vast and mysterious our human origins are, and what we might expect if and when the Anunnaki come back for a return visit."
UFO Magazine

"Sitchin's works are outstandingly different from all others that present this central theme. His linguistic skills in the languages of antiquity and his pursuit of the earliest available texts and artifacts make possible the wealth of photographs and line drawings appearing in his books from tablets, monuments, murals, pottery, and seals."
Rosemary Decker, historian and researcher

"In Sitchin's well referenced works, we witness how his towering intellect . . . allow him visionary access to ancient works in their original languages."
Bodhi Tree Bookstore, Winter 2002/Spring 2003
