"THERE WERE GIANTS IN THE EARTH IN THOSE DAYS; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."   - Genesis 6:4

The Novel
Ted D. Berner
A controversial verse in the Bible sparks college graduate student Ty Larson’s curiosity causing him to stumble onto the faint trace of an ancient advanced civilization that’s been all but lost to the sands of time. It soon becomes apparent that he’s not the only one with an interest in this long-lost civilization, but the others who share this interest and what their intentions are remain a mystery. Wading through legends and folklore, clues begin materializing that lead Ty down a bizarre path, uncovering the secrets of the massive stone structures scattered across the globe from the distant past. From the timeworn ruins in the high mountains of Bolivia and Peru to the colossal megaliths in Baalbek, Lebanon to the Great Pyramid itself, Ty unknowingly inches ever closer to unearthing the disturbing truth of the origins of mankind.

Although this novel is fiction, it’s based on fact, Biblical scripture, texts found in the Dead Sea scrolls omitted from the Bible, and many other stories from around the world that millions believe to be true.

Ted Berner grew up in the Mountains of Montana where he and his wife currently live on a ranch with several four-legged furry friends. Besides raising horses and Bernese Mountain Dogs, Berner is also an airline pilot and spends a few hours each week traveling around the country at thirty-five thousand feet.

Ted started his writing career in 2010 when he became fascinated with a mysterious civilization that is only briefly mentioned in the Bible. The topic of the Nephilim, the giants from the Bible, is such an intriguing subject that Berner has been a guest speaker on several shows, including Caravan to Midnight with John B. Wells and Late Night in the Midlands with Michael Vara.

Who are we and why are we here? How did this world that we live in come into existence? The Bible may shed some light on these issues, but is there even more to it? What happened all those eons ago to put all of what we know into motion? Who or what is God? Ted believes life is a gift and plans to use his to get to the bottom of some of these age-old questions.

"It was this verse in the Bible, Genesis 6:4, that fueled the fire in me to pursue some answers and continues to be a passion of mine to this day. The only thing I can say for sure is there appears to be fingerprints everywhere I look of something much greater." T. D. Berner

Proof the Novel


This book isn't just for Bible readers.  It is just about a verse from Genesis 6:4 which will make you stop and think.  Think about it, fallen angels mating with human women, producing giants, Nephilin.
There is the thought that the flood God sent was to destroy the earth, because of all the evil in it.  But let you mind go in a different direction.  What is the flood was to destroy the Nephilins?
 The Bible at times is open to interpretation.  That is what the reader can do as the pages turn.    When you start looking farther into the past, you're likely to discover some very interesting, some very strange, things.  Even though the book is a work of fiction, it's based on facts, things that some believe, some studies and some myths.  I became very interested in the Nephilin. What became of them?   Did the flood destroy them or did some live?  As you read you start to come up with more questions and more questions but the answers needed to be found, if they could.  All that happened long long ago, put into motions what is today.  I had a little problem with the ending. It left you hanging.  Perhaps the sequel that the author is working on will answer some questions.  Some of the questions will be answered, I'm sure.
Think as you read at the possibilities.  Open your mind and just think it may have been possible!

 I was given a  copy of this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.

As an FYI in case it is of interest, I have chronicles which early Jewish and Christian author held to the “Angel” view of Genesis 6 and which did not:
