Mention of Nimrod in the Bible is rather limited
(Oxford Handbooks in Religion and Theology: Oxford University Press) responds to and celebrates the explosion of research in this inter-disciplinary field over recent decades. As a one-volume reference work, it provides an introduction to the academic study of early Christianity (c. 100-600 AD) and examines the vast geographical area impacted by the early church, in Western and Eastern late antiquity. It is thematically arranged to encompass history, literature, thought, practices, and material culture. It contains authoritative and up-to-date surveys of current thinking and research in the various sub-specialties of early Christian studies, written by leading figures in the discipline. The essays orientate readers to a given topic, as well as to the trajectory of research developments over the past 30-50 years within the scholarship itself. Guidance for future research is also given. Each essay points the reader towards relevant forms of extant evidence (texts, documents, or examples of material culture), as well as to the appropriate research tools available for the area.
This volume will be useful to advanced undergraduate and post-graduate students, as well as to specialists in any area who wish to consult a brief review of the 'state of the question' in a particular area or sub-specialty of early Christian studies, especially one different from their own.

Then came Bleek, who advocated the idea of the Grundschift or original document and the redactor theory; and then Ewald, the father of the Crystallization theory; and then Hupfield (1853), who held that the original document was an independent compilation; and Graf, who wrote a book on the historical books of the Old Testament in 1866 and advocated the theory that the Jehovistic and Elohistic documents were written hundreds of years after Moses’ time.
by Ricardo Duchesne (Studies in Critical Social Sciences, 28: Brill Academic) This extensively researched book argues that the development of a libertarian culture was an indispensable component of the rise of the West. The roots of the West's superior intellectual and artistic creativity should be traced back to the aristocratic warlike culture of Indo-European speakers. Among the many fascinating topics discussed are: the ascendancy of multicultural historians and the degradation of European history; China's ecological endowments and imperial windfalls; military revolutions in Europe 1300-1800; the science and chivalry of Henry the Navigator; Judaism and its contribution to Western rationalism; the cultural richness of Max Weber versus the intellectual poverty of Pomeranz, Wong, Goldstone, Goody, and A.G. Frank; change without progress in the East; Hegel's Phenomenology of the [Western] Spirit; Nietzsche and the education of the Homeric Greeks; Kojeve's master-slave dialectic and the Western state of nature; Christian virtues and German aristocratic expansionism.

The fourth category of Christian UFOlogy is the most complex of the four categories, because it combines and reconciles information from both the second and third categories of Christian UFOlogy, and in some cases, depending on the author, also expounds upon topics of the Christian faith as well as the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon through the cross-referencing of terminology. For example, author John W. Milor speaks of the butterfly theory of the origin of angels, which suggests that they were initially created as reproductive species, reproducing after their own kind, rather than each being an individual creation.15 The humanoids that we know of as Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal were among some of the beings that God translated into angels. Evidence for this is found in the fossil record, (bones of Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal which predate Adam and Eve), indications in scriptures that speak of a pre-Adamite angelic civilization on Earth once ruled by Lucifer (Ezekiel 28; Isaiah 14), and also because the translation process from reproductive mortal humans to non-reproductive immortals is predicted to occur with humanoid Christians in the future, (Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25; Luke 20:35; Revelation 21:16–17; 22:8–9).
THE COMING DARKNESS - Great Dreams
In his 1918 book, , Scottish social anthropologist Sir documented similarities between Old Testament stories, such as the Flood, and indigenous legends around the world. He identified Livingston's account with a tale found in , wherein the wicked men build a tower of masts to pursue the Creator-God, Nyambe, who has fled to Heaven on a spider-web, but the men perish when the masts collapse. He further relates similar tales of the that substitute a pile of porridge pestles for the masts. Frazer moreover cites such legends found among the , as well as in , where the men stack poles or trees in a failed attempt to reach the moon . He further cited the and of as having a similar story. The traditions of the of , which Frazer considered to show clear 'Abrahamic' influence, also relate that their ancestors migrated there following the abandonment of a great in the land of the 30 generations from Adam, when the languages were confused and the Karen separated from the Karenni. He notes yet another version current in the where mankind's languages are confused following a failed attempt to build houses reaching to heaven. Some of these stories were later revealed to have derived recently from Christian missionary teaching.
