Graham Hancock's multi-million bestseller Fingerprints of the Gods remains an astonishing, deeply controversial, wide-ranging investigation of the mysteries of our past and the evidence for Earth's lost civilization. Twenty years on, Hancock returned with the sequel to his seminal work filled with completely new, scientific and archaeological evidence, which has only recently come to light. On the heels of the very successful hardcover edition, Hancock returns with this paperback version including two chapters brimming with recent reporting of fresh scientific advances (ranging from DNA to astrophysics) that substantially support the case. Near the end of the last Ice Age 12,800 years ago, a giant comet that had entered the solar system from deep space thousands of years earlier, broke into multiple fragments. Some of these struck the Earth causing a global cataclysm on a scale unseen since the extinction of the dinosaurs. At least eight of the fragments hit the North American ice cap, while further fragments hit the northern European ice cap. The impacts, from comet fragments a mile wide approaching at more than 60,000 miles an hour, generated huge amounts of heat which instantly liquidized millions of square kilometers of ice, destabilizing the Earth's crust and causing the global Deluge that is remembered in myths all around the world. A second series of impacts, equally devastating, causing further cataclysmic flooding, occurred 11,600 years ago, the exact date that Plato gives for the destruction and submergence of Atlantis. The evidence revealed in this book shows beyond reasonable doubt that an advanced civilization that flourished during the Ice Age was destroyed in the global cataclysms between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. But there were survivors - known to later cultures by names such as 'the Sages', 'the Magicians', 'the Shining Ones', and 'the Mystery Teachers of Heaven'. They travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the

With over 5 million copies sold worldwide of Fingerprints of the Gods, its New York Times bestselling sequel Magicians of the Gods brings new evidence supporting Hancock's thesis that a global cataclysm wiped out a great global civilization. On the heels of the very successful hardcover edition, Hancock returns with this paperback version including three new chapters brimming with recent reporting of fresh scientific advances (ranging from DNA to astrophysics) that substantially support his case. Twenty years ago, Graham Hancock published Fingerprints of the Gods an astonishing, deeply controversial investigation of the mysteries of and the evidence for Earth's lost prehistoric civilization. Twenty years after this massive bestseller debuted, Hancock returns with its sequel, filled with completely new scientific and archaeological evidence. Since 2007, a host of new proof has come to light supporting his theories through new archaeological discoveries. He travels to a wholly different set of ancient sites, including Gobekli Tepe, and brings entirely up to date and exciting material to the table for fans eagerly awaiting more evidence in favor of the prehistoric civilization. And, even more intriguing, he proposes an answer to the one question he could not answer in Fingerprints what caused this civilization to disappear. Magicians is poised perfectly for what his fans want to hear as well as for ushering in a new generation of readers.

They travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning.

Powerful new evidence has emerged that supports Hancock's disturbing thesis of a massive global cataclysm in the window between 13,000 and 12,000 years ago, around the last Ice Age, that wiped out and destroyed almost all traces (except the 'fingerprints') of a great global civilisation of prehistoric antiquity. Hancock analyses the evidence emerging from popular science for events such as north America being struck by several pieces of a giant fragmenting comet, and the discovery in Turkey of an extraordinary 12,000 year-old megalithic site called Gobekli Tepe, on the scale of Stonehenge, but 7,000 years older than any of the great stone circles. Mysteries of this calibre drive the quest of Magicians of the Gods, each leading us to a labyrinth of further possibilities. Graham Hancock takes his original intuition of two phases of construction much further, exploring and investigating many mysterious ancient sites high in the Andes. His research also takes him to the Amazon, a rain forest that has been managed and cultured by human beings for millenia. From the Amazon, Graham follows the trail east, along the Atlantic ocean to the west coast of Africa, through the Sahara and on to Egypt. Magicians of the Gods satisfies the intellect and inspires the imagination. It transports readers for years to come with realms of mystery, enchantment and extraordinary possibilities.

***THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP TEN BESTSELLER*** 'Hancock's books provide a fascinating, alternative version of prehistory. America Before, detailed and wide-ranging, turns what was myth and legend into a new story of the past.' Daily Mail Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally bestselling author, has made it his life's work to find out -- and in America Before, he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion. We've been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13,000 years ago - amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors. But new discoveries have radically reshaped this long-established picture and we know now that the Americas were first peopled more than 130,000 years ago - many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhere. Hancock's research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientists responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, he reveals that ancient 'New World' cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected 'Old World' cultures. Have archaeologists focussed for too long only on the 'Old World' in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the 'New World'? America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilisation is the culmination of everything that millions of readers have loved in Hancock's body of work over the past decades, namely a mind-dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past, amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.

Gods Others: Non-Israelites Encounters with God in the Hebrew Bible reveals the stories of two-dozen of the best-kept secrets in what is often referred to as the Old Testamentthe foundation text for the three Abrahamic faiths. Often overlooked or misunderstood, these non-Israelite individuals and groups encounter God through personal or historic revelations. They include: Melchizedek, King of Salem Lot, Abrahams nephew Hagar, Abrahams concubine Laban, Jacobs brother-in-law The Pharaoh of the Exodus Jethro, Moses father-in-law Rahab, harlot of Jericho The Queen of Sheba Ruth Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon The Gentiles of Jonah Job Gods others demonstrate that people may approach God by many paths. They show that claims to exclusive religious truth, which often have pitted Jews, Christians and Muslims against each other, represent a misreading of the Hebrew Bible and the Jewish position of respect for others. Traditional and modern commentary add depth to these biblical stories, making them as accessible as they are fascinating.
