This is a non-biase christian book with enough evidence to guide you through the manisfestions of these UFO and alien abductions.

There are many good UFO books that are very well researched, and full of facts and information and photos.

To believe in UFO's or not to Believe?
And, if you believe, what can you believe?
There are many good UFO books that are very well researched, and full of facts and information and photos. So much so that it is difficult to dismiss UFO's regardless of our underlying beliefs. But, most of the reports and concepts of UFO's cannot fit with the basic principles of physics -which are the same throughout the universe. Most other books fail to research and offer support in this area rendering their claims less than believable.
What is different and exceptionally interesting and valuable about this book is that it takes a 180 degree turn to review this information from a completely different paradigm - UFO's could be from an alternative dimension. From this multi-dimensional vantage point, many of the odd facts, and abduction and other reports on UFO's fit together better and are more easily accepted. It also touches upon some of the laws of physics to show why these laws are at issue and therefore must be dealt with.
Going a step further, Missler and Eastman then review ancient passages in an attempt to determine if this multi-dimensional paradigm can fit with Jewish, or Christian scriptural beliefs. It appears that their research really pays off well with a different paradigm that supports all of the disparate and anomalous UFO reports.
Of course there have been many speculations regarding various UFO reports, and in turn, Missler/Eastman do make certain leaps in possible interpretations of come biblical passages (which they readily identify as such). But, overall, the paradigm seems to have greater footing than any other UFO model I have read about.

This book postulates that UFO's are an alien phenomenon, but are piloted by "spiritual" aliens, descendants of the fallen angels mentioned in the Nephilim account of Genesis. I have read this theory before in shorter articles, but this book takes the reader step-by-step through the logic and thought process behind the evidences. It is very interesting reading, and presents a completely different theory on UFO's, who is operating them, and what their purpose is in coming to earth. Rather than spoil the book for any potential readers, I will say that the authors present an astounding yet viable explanation for the existance of UFO's, their special physical properties, and the beings that are within the walls of the craft.

Interestingly, the authors provide solid evidence for the existance of UFO's from various sources, including eye-witness accounts from astronauts and jet pilots who have chased UFO's. Once they establish the basis for the existance of UFO's, they begin to reveal their theory. I believe readers will find the evidence presented for the existance of UFO sightings rational and logical. Since the authors then present an alien theory that is unlike any other, the reader may have doubts about their premise, however, it is certainly a feasible explanation for the UFO phenomenon, an explanation that accounts for all the quirks and strangeness associated with UFO's.

I do recommend this book to anyone with an open mind on UFO's. Many of us have preconceived notions on UFO's, and the explanation presented here is so astounding and different that many readers will initially balk at the authors conclusions. As a student of the Bible for many years, I found their conclusions enlightening and certainly feasible, and best of all thoroughly intriging.

Format: Paperback
A very intelligent man once said, "Read the Old Testament like those for whom it was written - The Jews." Missler does a very good job of just that. Having at one time been a "New Age" devotee, I am thrilled to find this literature. For my fellow reviewers who find this book to be "stretching the truth" or part of a "propaganistic" agenda, I encourage you to study the old testament like a person of Jewish faith, and then judge the truth for yourself. Genesis and Revelation are more closely tied than an uneducated gentile can comprehend, and Missler's illustrations are indeed very valid. As a science fiction fanatic, and a "technology junkee," I must profess profound thankfulness to authors such as Missler (under the guidance of Jesus), who have once again pulled me "closer into the fold." Jesus said that there will be many "false prophets who will appear and decieve many people," and that "false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to decieve the elect." In our technology addicted society, anyone who provides us answers or tempts us with the offer of "knowledge," (much like the serpent in the Garden of Eden) will receive our admiration and trust. Have you ever asked yourself, "How can we possibly unite under one person? We are just too different to agree." But what if that "person" came from the stars, "explained" our Bible, solved our problems, and claimed to either "know" or in fact "be" Jesus Christ - would we follow? Would you? (If you think I am reaching for this, read any New Age text on aliens.) This book leads to much thought and should be read by all. I can only suggest that you know Satan and his disguises, but first you must know yourself - for he knows you very well.

More About the Author

About the founders, Chuck and Nancy Missler

Chuck and Nancy Missler were both raised in Southern California.

Chuck demonstrated an aptitude for technical interests as a youth. He became a ham radio operator at age nine and started piloting airplanes as a teenager. While still in high school, Chuck built a digital computer in the family garage.

His plans to pursue a doctorate in electrical engineering at Stanford University were interrupted when he received a Congressional appointment to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. Graduating with honors, Chuck took his commission in the Air Force. After completing flight training, he met and married Nancy. Chuck joined the Missile Program and eventually became Branch Chief of the Department of Guided Missiles.

Chuck made the transition from the military to the private sector when he became a systems engineer with TRW, a large aerospace firm. He then went on to serve as a senior analyst with a non-profit think tank where he conducted projects for the intelligence community and the Department of Defense. During that time, Chuck earned a master's degree in engineering at UCLA, supplementing previous graduate work in applied mathematics, advanced statistics and information sciences.

Recruited into senior management at the Ford Motor Company in Dearborn, Michigan, Chuck established the first international computer network in 1966. He left Ford to start his own company, a computer network firm that was subsequently acquired by Automatic Data Processing (listed on the New York Stock Exchange) to become its Network Services Division.

Returning to California, Chuck found himself consulting, organizing corporate development deals, serving on the board of directors at several firms, and specializing in the rescuing of financially troubled technology companies. He brought several companies out of Chapter 11 and into profitable operation. Chuck thrived on this type of work.

As Chuck notes, his day of reckoning came several years ago when -- as the result of a merger -- he found himself the chairman and a major shareholder of a small, publicly owned development company known as Phoenix Group International. The firm established an $8 billion joint venture with the Soviet Union to supply personal computers to their 143,000 schools. Due to several unforeseen circumstances, the venture failed. The Misslers lost everything, including their home, automobiles and insurance.

It was during this difficult time that Chuck turned to God and the Bible. As a child he developed an intense interest in the Bible; studying it became a favorite pastime. In the 1970s, while still in the corporate world, Chuck began leading weekly Bible studies at the 30,000-member Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, in California. He and Nancy established Koinonia House in 1973.

Chuck had enjoyed a longtime, personal relationship with Hal Lindsey, who upon hearing of Chuck's professional misfortune, convinced him that he could easily succeed as an independent author and speaker. Over the years, Chuck had developed a loyal following. (Through Doug Wetmore, head of the tape ministry of Firefighters for Christ, Chuck learned that over 7 million copies of his taped Bible studies were scattered throughout the world.) Koinonia House then became Chuck's full-time profession.

Nancy Missler attended UCLA where she studied art. She met Chuck on a blind date in 1956 and they married the following year. Through Christian author and speaker Henrietta Mears, Nancy became a Christian, and she devoted herself to her family, raising the Misslers' four children, Chip, Mark, Lisa and Michelle.. Nancy also established a company, Missler Aerial Photography Service, that specialized in aerial and architectural photography.

After almost 20 years of marriage they appeared on the outside to have it all: challenging careers, beautiful home and many of the trappings of an extremely successful lifestyle. Despite their strong commitment to Christ, their marriage was falling apart. Nothing seemed to work and they appeared destined for divorce.

But, before such a drastic action, Nancy began to search the Scriptures for the answers to her broken heart. As she started practicing what the Lord revealed, a sequence of events began that revolutionized their marriage! Her studies have continued over 20 years as the Lord has revealed hundreds of Scriptures to guide and direct her steps.

Her first book, Why Should I be The First To Change? describes the miracle of her healed marriage. She followed this with The King's High Way Trilogy: The Way of Agape, Be Ye Transformed and Faith in the Night Seasons. These are study courses that teach the practical application of how to love as God desires; how to renew our minds so we can be transformed into His image; and, how to experience unshakeable faith so we can enjoy intimacy with Him.

More than 400,000 copies of Nancy's books have been sold to date. She has spoken to women's groups throughout the United States as well as Europe, Australia, Israel, Thailand and New Zealand. She has appeared many times on national television and given hundreds of radio interviews.

Nancy and Chuck now travel and teach through their ministry, Koinonia House, and they remain dedicated to create, develop and distribute materials which stimulate, encourage and facilitate serious study of the Bible as the inerrant Word of God.
