Erich von Däniken is arguably the most widely read and most-copied nonfiction author in the world. He published his first (and best-known) book, Chariots of the Gods, in 1968. This worldwide bestseller was followed by forty more books, including the recent bestsellers The Gods Never Left Us, Evolution Is Wrong, Confessions of an Egyptologist, Eyewitness to the Gods, Twilight of the Gods, History Is Wrong, Evidence of the Gods, Remnants of the Gods, and Odyssey of the Gods. His works have been translated into twenty-eight languages and have sold more than sixty-five million copies. Von Däniken’s ideas have been the inspiration for a wide range of television series, including the History Channel’s hit Ancient Aliens.

Who Was Enoch and Did He Speak the Language of Extraterrestrials?
The bestselling author of Chariots of the Gods, Erich von Däniken, examines the great traditions of mankind—thousands of years old—for signs, traces, messages that point to early contact with extraterrestrial intelligences. The Gods were here. But when will they return? Or have they ever really left?
The culmination of long-term research, Enoch and the Return of the Gods argues that we are very much in the minds and eyes of other cosmic life-forms and that, as a result, many of the dramatic historical events and remarkable teachings of religious texts should be reinterpreted. The words of the Bible are at the center of his text-critical interpretations that pick apart the sense and nonsense of religious views. He also draws on ancient Jewish sagas and legends, reports from early historians, and Indian, Babylonian, and Persian traditions.
As always, von Däniken finds support for a number of interesting questions:

  • Did Adam and Eve witness a UFO?
  • What will Judgment Day truly be?
  • Why did extraterrestrials tinker with humanity’s DNA?

The Gods were here, and it is clear their influence remains to this day.
This book was first published in 1998 under the title The Return of the Gods. This new edition features a new introduction by the author.
