Reviews

"Painstakingly researched and eloquently written, J. S. Gordon's Land of the Fallen Star Gods paints a broad, detailed picture of what must be an ancient language of science embedded in an ancient civilization's expression. The Egyptian's use of symbol and metaphor in art, architecture, and civil planning was no mere function of primitive religiosity. Rather, it was the philosophical foundation of civilization expressing deep insights into human existence and the significance of the human experience. Land of the Fallen Star Gods is not only fascinating but also an important work of scholarship. It should be required reading for anyone interested in civilization's origins and the birth of the Western religious and esoteric traditions." * Edward F. Malkowski, author of Before the Pharaohs, The Spiritual Technology of Ancient Egypt, and A *
"That an advanced lost civilization is part of our human heritage should now be self-evident to all those capable of rational thought. John Gordon's book takes the currently neglected 'long' view of the lost civilization hypothesis (derived mainly from theosophy and Hindu/Vedic accounts) and defends it with solid scholarship, reasoned argument, and a deep understanding of esoteric philosophy. At once gutsy and erudite, this is a really interesting book." * John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky and The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt *
"The primary hypothesis of Land of the Fallen Star Gods is that that the ancient Egyptian culture carried the legacy of 'fallen star gods', divine celestial beings who visited Earth in the distant past, and will one day come again. Land of the Fallen Star Gods is fascinating and accessible from cover to cover, highly recommended especially for Metaphysical Studies shelves." * Midwest Book Review, November 2014 *
"Brilliant, erudite, and controversial, John Gordon has used Madame Blavatsky's insights to throw a new light on the problems of ancient Egyptian civilization." * Colin Wilson, author of the bestselling The Outsider, The Occult: A History, and Atlantis and the Ki *
