Roots of the Kingdom by Glenn L. Marx is a fascinating book with an irresistible appeal to Biblical fans and history buffs as well as readers who are intrigued about the nature of God and His presence in human history. In this book, the author offers a compelling account of history, supernatural phenomena, and heavenly beings, allowing readers to uncover hidden threads and links between heaven and earth. Readers will understand the primordial place of God and the proverbial conflict between good and evil and how the violence that is witnessed among humans is a reflection of the rebellion against God by those He created.
This is a book that takes readers beyond Biblical times to explore the nature of God and his role in creation. The author examines what went wrong, offering an incisive interpretation of some of the biblical texts that readers are familiar with while boldly considering astounding possibilities. And while this book can be read as the genealogy of good and evil, it ultimately celebrates God’s unfailing love for all of His creatures and brings to light the myriad of ways in which He has been offended. The author writes about rebellious angels mating with humans and infecting human DNA, the hidden agenda of Satan, and the threat that the Giant Nephilim posed to existence. Roots of the Kingdom is a well-researched and intelligently executed work, as inspiring as it is insightful, and it provides a lot of clarity when it comes to understanding evil, God’s love for humanity, and humanity’s place in the economy of salvation. This book is as thought-provoking as it is inspiring.
