Blind Watchers of the Sky Book Excerpt:

How do we know that the earth travels around the sun, the universe is billions of years old, and stars are trillions of miles away? Rocky Kolb tells the fascinating story of the people and ideas that have brought us such knowledge of our planet and the universe, giving realistic portraits of astronomers like Tycho, Kepler, Galileo, Herschel and Hubble. Beginning in 1572 with Tycho's discovery that the heavens can change and ending with the Big Bang of the 20th Century, this is a hugely entertaining and witty account of the quest to discover the universe.

The Watchers Book Excerpt:

In the vastness of space there are the Watchers. Who are they? Where did they come from? Those are the questions the Family of Man would like to answer. The Watchers are an enigmatic race that controls the universe in ways unknown to the Family of Man. They made their presence known only a few times in the history of the Family of Man. Popping in and out of existence, they offer aid and ideas at critical times. They brought a faction of the Family of Man back to their Homeworld to recolonize and develop what they feared had been destroyed by their sun. Humanity had gained their attention when nuclear weapons had been launched in space near Jupiter, an incident that could have changed the history of the human solar system. Come along with Aiden and Stovan as they attempt to discover the truth about these entities called: The Watchers.

The Eagle Watchers Book Excerpt:

Eagles have fascinated humans for millennia. For some, the glimpse of a distant eagle instantly becomes a treasured lifelong memory. Others may never encounter a wild eagle in their lifetime. This book was written by people who have dedicated years to the study of eagles, to provide an insider's view for all readers, but especially those who have never been up close and personal with these magnificent yet often misunderstood creatures. In their stories, twenty-nine leading eagle researchers share their remarkable field experiences, providing personal narratives that don't feature in their scientific publications. They tell of their fear at being stalked by grizzly bears, their surprise at being followed by the secret police, their embarrassment when accidentally firing mortar rockets over a school gymnasium, and their sense of awe at tracking eagles via satellite. The reader experiences the cultural shock of being guest of honor at a circumcision ceremony, the absurdity of sharing an aquatic car with the Khmer Rouge, and the sense of foreboding at being press-ganged into a frenzied tribal death march through the jungle. The Eagle Watchers covers twenty-four species on six continents, from well known (bald eagle; golden eagle), to obscure (black-and-chestnut eagle; New Guinea harpy eagle), and from common (African fish eagle) to critically endangered (Philippine eagle; Madagascar fish eagle). The diverse experiences vividly described in this book reveal the passion, dedication, and sense of adventure shared by those who study these majestic birds and strive for their conservation. Featuring stunning color photographs of the eagles, information on raptor conservation, a global list of all eagle species with ranges and conservation status, and a color map of the sites visited in the book, The Eagle Watchers will appeal to birders, conservationists, and adventure travelers alike. To further support the conservation programs described in this book, all royalties are being donated to two leading nonprofit organizations for raptor conservation training and fieldwork: Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Intern Program and the National Birds of Prey Trust.

The Watchers Book Excerpt:

A chilling tale based on true events from the bestselling author of The Ghost Hunters, now a major ITV drama starring Rafe Spall A chilling tale based on true events. At the height of the Cold War, officials investigated a series of unusual events that occurred along a strip of rugged Pembrokeshire coastline nicknamed 'The Broad Haven Triangle'. The events made national headlines: lights and objects hovering in the sky, ghostly figures peering into farmhouse windows... Thirty years later, official files were finally released for public scrutiny at the National Archives. The disclosure prompted a new witness to come forward to speak of what he knew. His testimony rocked the very foundations of the British Government. This is his story.

God s Court and Courtiers in the Book of the Watchers Book Excerpt:

First Enoch is an ancient Judean work that inaugurated the genre of apocalypse. Chapters 1-36 tell the story of the descent of angels called "Watchers" from heaven to earth to marry human women before the time of the flood, the chaos that ensued, and God's response. They also relate the journeying of the righteous scribe Enoch through the cosmos, guided by angels. Heaven, including the place and those who dwell there (God, the angels, and Enoch), plays a central role in the narrative. But how should heaven be understood? Existing scholarship, which presupposes "Judaism" as the appropriate framework, views the Enochic heaven as reflecting the temple in Jerusalem, with God's house replicating its architecture and the angels and Enoch functioning like priests. Yet recent research shows the Judeans constituted an ethnic group, and this view encourages a fresh examination of 1 Enoch 1-36. The actual model for heaven proves to be a king in his court surrounded by his courtiers. The major textual features are explicable in this perspective, whereas the temple-and-priests model is unconvincing. The author was a member of a nontemple, scribal group in Judea that possessed distinctive astronomical knowledge, promoted Enoch as its exemplar, and was involved in the wider sociopolitical world of their time.

Decree of the Watchers Book Excerpt:

In a universe where nearly everyone ponders the meaning of their existence and believes humanity is alone in this reality, powerful inorganic beings from a mysterious realm outside time and space observe and make judgments that affect the course of human history in accordance with specific destinies. A man who has been stalked by evil since childhood is living within a dark world; bound by an unseen enemy, the Adversary, and hopelessly trapped in a prison inside his own mind. Adam is unaware of his special destiny and that Watchers observe and guide events on Earth and elsewhere to provide him an opportunity to freely choose to fulfill his purpose or follow a different path. Though the Watchers give meaning to his otherwise meaningless suffering, only time will tell which path Adam will choose. Will he choose his destiny and defeat his adversary or will he surrender and join him on the Dark Path? Decree of the Watchers shares the tale of one mans journey to fulfill his extraordinary purpose with unseen help from powerful inorganic beings from another dimension.
