Dr. Downing takes the position not of proving that angels and UFOs exist, but rather that if they do exist, then these 2 phenomenon are identical. From the pillar of cloud/fire in Exodus, to the wheel of Ezekiel, to the fiery chariot which took Elijah into heaven, we are presented with an explanation from a space age perspective which could lift the Bible out of its mythological status into being validated as the realistic record of events which prophets described to the best of their abilities with words such as "chariot".
I appreciate Dr. Downing's honesty in providing limitations and alternate explanations for his views. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is exploring the connection between angels and UFOs.
You have to have an open mind when reading.
He states, "Flying saucers and the possibility of the Second Coming of Christ open up the possibility that the Christian faith could be verified or falsified in this world..." "It is clear that in the Bible the "time" element was never settled. " The second coming could happen in 20 years or 2,000 years, but it could happen!. I think Barry Downing has written a very convincing book presenting Jesus in an exciting new role. In my book I refer to Jesus as `Captain of the Star Fleet.' Downing would approve. I recommend this book to all. I know I was grateful for this author's insights. When I wrote my own book about Jesus, I stood on his shoulders. Highly recommended, quick, simple, easy to read, but the ideas are profound and will stay with you forever.

It's a book. It is printed on paper. It's full of words. The words are surprisingly clear and legible. It doesn't have a lot of pictures but it does have a beginning and an end. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Ballsar Frozenoff
This book is not true scholarship. Much more is it bad, if not wantonly heretical, theology. Not to mention, it is junk science, too. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mr.Dupont
A very interesting book wit lots of Biblical references that I found very fascinating. I hope to purchase more to share with others.Published on January 20, 2014 by Charlotte Geier
I had really been looking forward to reading this book because I found out about it through Chariots of the Gods, many years ago and the title really stuck in my head. Read morePublished on October 17, 2013 by Harry W Blumfield
He really makes one think about how we got here and what does that mean for us today. Well worth reading.Published on September 19, 2013 by Passionforlife
I think this is a very well researched book and as strange as it may sound to connect UFO's with the Bible it easy to see where the comparison is reasonable. Read morePublished on August 3, 2013 by LoisKM
