Enoch the Ethiopian, Patriarch and Prophet. Greater than Abraham, Holier than Moses the lawgiver. And yet he has been kept a secret until the printing of this revealing book. The Bible states that only 3 men ascended body, mind and soul into heaven.

Enoch was the first, Elijah was the second and Jesus Christ was the third. Enoch however is unique. He was the first to have both walked with God and to have ascended into heaven without experiencing death. Enoch lived such a rightous life that he did not die.

Enoch, the son of Jarod, the seventh seed of Adam, the great grandfather of Noah, father of Methuselah. This prophetic man, an outstanding spiritual leader before the biblical flood, is the most towering biblical character in history whose flawless credentials and heavenly achievements are recounted by Moses.

It shows that God can do extraordinary things through ordinary men and women. And David offers an insightful perspective on what it means to be truly spiritual, to become like David?
