I just finished reading a book called The Ninth Generation by John Owens. (I'm on spring break from school and have time for such things ...) I was introduced to the book itself by the author when he saw my novel And The Beat Goes On on line and noted that it also dealt with the Nephilim. I guess it goes to show you that somebody, somewhere out there is reading something I've written! In any case, I did enjoy this book for a number of reasons, although I do also have a few criticisms. Let's deal with the positives first.

The book is set in a pre-flood world and centres mostly around a man named Lameck, the father of Noah. Owens has done a fabulous job of painting a very descriptive and believable picture of what the earth was like at that time. His imagery is rich and thorough. It is obvious he has done extensive research on the topic, and he presents the earth, as it would have appeared under a young-earth model of creationism, in a detailed and imaginative way. I also appreciated the way he constructed an explanation for the presense of the Nephilim - the giants of old. There is lots of debate among Biblical scholars about who these 'men' really were, but Owens takes a stand on the side of the supernatural, which gives his version that sense of fantasy not unlike those metaphoric 'giants', Tolkien and Lewis. I also saw glimpses of Frank Peretti's classic This Present Darkness, as he delves into the spirit realm, although Owens treats the existance of spirits and angelic beings in a much more literal way. Early humans could apparently see and interact with supernatural beings on a daily basis. This aspect of the book certainly appealed to me since I do love the fantasy/Sci-fi genre and Owens delivered on that score.

Fascinating page-turner that stays with you May 15 2010
By Maggie Jarpey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This fascinating, original story manages to be completely believable even though it deals with amazing events. The author's imagination is huge but never crosses the boundary of biblical possibility. Thoroughly enjoyable and at the same time spiritually edifying. It stays on your mind, and I plan to reread it in the future.

Very intriguing Sept. 3 2009
By Tina - Published on
Format: Paperback
I don't usually read alot of these types of novel, but I have always been intrigued by earth - life way back when - before Noah's Ark and all the biblical references. It is almost impossible for me to imagine what that world could have been like.

Enter THe Ninth Generation: Conquering the Giants. What a fascinating look at the world before any of us knew it. Full of mystical and supernatural, intertwined with unimaginable hardship, mixed with romance and suspense. This book has it all and gives us a totally imagined and intriguing point of view of how the world was in the beginning.

I loved the writing and the author does a wonderful job of moving the story along - dealing deftly with the mixture of all the possibilities -making me really sit back and consider the possibilities.

I really enjoyed this book.

This Book Should Be A #1 Bestseller! Jan. 25 2014
By tranz4md - Published on
Format: Paperback
John L Owens is a very imaginative writer as he captures for his audience what it might have been like back in biblical days. The Ninth Generation: Surviving The Giants Of The Pre-Flood Earth was a dynamite read! It's been a long time since I've read a novel. I am more of a non-fiction reader and writer. But when I noticed the title I imagined there had to be some truth within its pages. I was delightfully surprised to find a great deal of truth throughout this book.

The MC is Lameck. He has to come up against many antagonists which makes it a very thrilling journey. Midway through the book he becomes vengeful because of the death of Talisha whom he wanted to marry. Because of his weak spirit and distant relationship with 'Holy God' he is tempted to make a covenant with Satan and he succumbs to that temptation in order to satisfy his revenge on Talisha's murderer.

This totally changes Lameck's character (he actually becomes embodied by the Nephilim giant Trog whom he and his brother Aril killed during a fishing trip to the coastlands) and his grandfather Enoch sense something is very wrong.

Lameck had been chosen by God to defeat the Nephilim and rescue his Sethite family line from the danger of annihilation by these giants but how does this happen if he has made a covenant with the devil. You'll have to read the book to find out...

I highly recommend this book to everyone. There's a great deal of wisdom wrapped up in this novel full of suspense, romance, and intrigue!

A Time of Mystical Youth & Adventure Sept. 3 2009
By M. Stanhope - Published on
Format: Paperback
Such a long time ago ... there are biblical quotations used throughout this book titled "The Ninth Generation: Conquering the Giants" by John L. Owens. It starts out with two brothers Lameck and Aril on a fishing trip for food that ends so very wrong when a giant named Trog, Lord of the Coastlands dies in a scenario of kill the brothers or the brothers kill the giant.

The more Lameck tries to make things right surrounding everything that took place with Trog's death the more things go wrong ... he even finds his girl is not so true to him, here enters the reference of the Garden of Eden. This bringing is up subjects of love, lust, material belongings, and covenance.

Once a shocking death is revealed, there is a scene where Lameck strikes out for revenge. Here he is visited by "Lucifer" promising security and safety for his loyalty. As you'll read throughout the book several passages are referenced and meaning is brought forward in the story being told. It makes you stop and think. The end goal is for Lameck to hold on to his family and faith. I enjoyed this book.

A New Voice for Lessons of Old March 14 2009
By G. Reba - Published on
Format: Paperback
Journey into biblical times, a full generation before Noah and his ark, to see the world as it once was...full of life and beauty, yet equally sewn with hardship and grieve. Mr. Owens weaves a story of passion and intrigue using religious references from books of old. His writing style poetically describes the lands into which the reader will travel allowing them the chance to experience the tale first hand. The characters voices speak from the pages with both a depth and sincerity felt within heart and mind. A well-suited book for the casual reader as well as the religious scholar, able to be enjoyed on both levels.
