The Ancient Epic of Gilgamesh Brought to Life
The epic Journey of the great Mesopotamian King Gilgamesh who sought eternal life after Noah’s Flood.
In the primal age after the Great Flood, the sons of Noah fill the earth. But God has given man over to his wickedness.
One giant warrior king named Gilgamesh sets out on an epic journey to seek eternal life in a world filled with death. Accompanied by his only friend, the wild-man Enkidu, his quest takes them from a giant’s forest, to the mountain of the gods, to the Path of the Sun in the Underworld, and ultimately to a distant magical island to find the one man granted divine favor during the flood: Noah.
And the secret Gilgamesh discovers will change history forever.
Gilgamesh Immortal is an adaptation of the oldest written hero story in history. And yet it is timeless in its universal themes of friendship, courage, purpose, the pursuit of immortality and the meaning of life.
If you read and liked the original Epic of Gilgamesh, you’ll LOVE Gilgamesh Immortal.
If you are fascinated with the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark, you’ll find Gilgamesh Immortal an eye-opening sequel that ties in ancient history with the Bible like you’ve never read before!
Part of the Biblical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Nephilim
Gilgamesh Immortal is the third book of the Biblical Fantasy Series Chronicles of the Nephilim, an epic story that begins with Enoch and Noah and tells the Biblical storyline of the Genesis 6 Nephilim giants, hybrid offspring of the angelic Watchers mating with human women.
Though Gilgamesh Immortal can be read on its own, the reader will have a much more rich experience reading the book within the Chronicles of the Nephilim Biblical Fantasy Series. Everything is connected. Everything.
Learn About the Historical and Biblical Research Behind the Novel
Author Godawa shares the scholarly research that undergirds the fictional adventure. Gilgamesh Immortal has an appendix that examines the Epic of Gilgamesh and compares it with Noah’s Flood story in the Bible.
Biblical Fantasy Based on History and Ancient Mythology
Gilgamesh Immortal is written in the spirit of The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings, blending fantasy and mythopoeia with history to retell the Biblical narrative with a fresh perspective, making it come alive in a new way, while staying true to the original spirit of the Bible story.
It’s like connecting the dots and filling in the story between the lines of what the Bible tells us.
A NOTE ON THE AGE APPROPRIATENESS OF THE NOVELS
Some Christians have asked what “rating” the novels have in terms of the portrayal of sex and violence. I would say the series is rated PG-13. The Chronicles do deal with evil behaviors that would be appropriate for mature teens and above. The violence in the Chronicles is like the book of Judges. The sexuality is like Song of Solomon, alluded to poetically, but obviously. The description of sexual evil is like Ezekiel 16, sometimes shocking, but never glorified. There is an occasional profane word or vulgarity like in Ezekiel 23, revealing spiritual wickedness.
