CCR 045: Interview with Brian Godawa

Play

ep 45

THE BIBLE IS FULL OF EXTRAORDINARY AND SUPERNATURAL EVENTS! Yet many of our church goers and cultural Christians focus only on our own personal stories while ignoring the greatest epic God is writing out in human history. In fact, it is so fantastic that only the genre of science fiction will suffice in communicating what it may have been like in the days of Enoch and Noah. This is the goal of author and award winning screen writer Brian Godawa. In his The Chronicles of the Nephilim book series, Brian fills in the gaps of what we read about in the Old Testament with scenarios that we are just beginning to understand through the discovery of many ancient text from the Ancient Near East. Influenced by Dr. Michael Heiser and his work on the Divine Council, Brian has created an exciting and intriguing way for people to engage in the conversation about the Sons of God from Genesis 6 and the Nephilim. We also hear from Basil who is traveling the vast lands of the U.S.

    What a fun interview. Brian makes a convincing case for his views. He’s certainly made me stop and think about how I think of the narratives and imagery in the Bible.
    I’ll be checking some of his books out for sure.

    1. Hey Jonny,

      Glad you thought it went well. It was a great discussion to have as well and I wish we could have gone longer.

      I like that he stays ambiguous in certain places, because really, there are many missing pieces to the puzzle. Fiction is a great genre to display some of these ideas as well.

      Of course sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

      1. I found Brian a little hard to listen to but his heart is in the right place.
        Having Basil jump in later was a good respite.

    Love the interview.

    With regards to make-up, my take is that the Fallen taught man about it to increase our abilities to seduce each other. For an example, here is an article about porn stars with/without make-up.
