This book examines the current UFO phenomenon from a Christian perspective. When one looks unbiasedly at the evidence for "UFOs" one must conclude that there must be SOMETHING to it... But what? Four stars for "Alien Encounters".

Haven't really learned, it's stuff I pretty much have already read about in other books, and they were made less boring. I am still going to get this book read since I paid for it.

Intriguing! I support the general premise regarding alien phenomenon being replete with a false New Age message. Although admittedly it does get pretty strange and is very difficult to actually grapple with subject matter as a very true reality. (view spoiler) ...more

This is one of those books that revealed my preconcieved notions on the subject as I began. I would not have readily admitted to anyone that I was reading it because people who believe in UFOs are kooky right? Boy was I in for a shock! The only reason I even considered reading it was because I highly respect the author and know he is not one to write anything without have done an exhorbitant amount of research on the subject. I now can easily admit to having read this book and highly recommend i ...more

Very compelling evidence for the existence of non-human beings interfering with humanity for their own agenda, generally presenting themselves as benevolent and generally only abducting people involved with the new age or occult practices.

This is one of those areas where Missler crosses into some speculative ideas, and his work here is controversial. Sadly, a lot of people will write him off as a crackpot because he dares to consider some ideas that are beyond the pale. But if you can take what he says with a grain of salt (as he himself advises at the beginning of most of his teaching materials), it can be fun to contemplate the theories he tosses around. Nobody should be dogmatic about ideas like this, but neither should we clo ...more

i was willing to put up with the lack of scholarship and inaccuracies. i was even willing to follow the poor logic for a bit too. then, about two thirds of the way through, the book reveals itself to be christian conspiracy/numerology bullshit, a la harold camping. this was too much. couldn't bring myself to finish it.

This is a great book which makes the case that UFO's are real, they are from another dimension and their pilots are not interplanetary, but spiritual beings intent on keeping the human race away from God. We are being set up for the ultimate deception.

Great for Christians who are fascinated with UFOs. I read it back in my thumping days, so... I have no idea how I'd react to it now.
Nov 27, 2011 John rated it really liked it
Now here's an odd book. It's probably the most bizarre bit of conspiracy theorizing I've ever come across, and yet, if you believe the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God, then the premise presented here certainly seems plausible; logical, even. This is by far Missler's most captivating book, but also highly theoretical in nature, and not something that most people are going to be able to buy into. However, Missler does make a strong case that the UFO phenomenon is a real event not simply regul ...more

This might seem a bit off the wall, but Chuck Missler is well respected and I first heard his theory on this years ago. Now finally reading the book and his pretty fact-based presentation of the matter, it's actually pretty freaky. What's even more scary is how well supported his thesis is...even if you don't agree with his theory it doesn't hurt to be well-informed.

A thought-provoking book positing a new theory to explain alien encounters and abductions. The spiritual angle detailed in this volume should not be discounted.

Branch Chief of the Department of Guided Missiles, Senior Analyst with projects for the intelligence community and Department of Defense, various technologies, and in aerospace with much more. Having a working knowledge of Quantum physics and astrophysics, the subject placement combined many areas of ...more

Shelves: prophecy
This is an excellent book by Chuck Missler - pairing with Eastman - which really sets the plane straight regarding the alien phenomenon. Although this book is a little older, and slightly out of date with some of the more recent events (a great documentary that should be watched is Fallen Angels and the NWO, free on YouTube), it still does an excellent job at explaining the pheonomona, citing it, and showing how it fits in with a biblical worldview, namely, they are demons. Missler has been larg ...more

If you read the reviews below by Mandi, Elle, Janett and Danny, you will get a very good idea of Chuck Missler's credibility as a scientist and a Christian.

Missler uses a solid understanding of Hebrew and Greek to uncover the real meaning of scriptures that have seemed to lose their importance when translated into English. We have accepted blindly so many things that we have been taught in the Christian church that we have missed very significant facts, especially about the Nephilim.

The first several reviews cover everything you want or need to know in deciding if this is a book for you. I've never been interested or read about UFO's before, but found the premise of this book very interesting and plausible. I couldn't put it down until the end. The one friend I admitted I was reading it to said she'd put it in her queue, and then we could discuss it wearing tin foil hats in the back of a pick-up truck somewhere in the deserts of New Mexico.

Great book on perhaps, a taboo subject. I really appreciated how the author connected Scripture to explain the satanic side of these alien invaders. Highly recommend this to those interested in ufology and biblical explanations for these extraterrestrials

Chuck Missler is an awesome communicator, whether in writing or in audio. This book is great, scriptural, and will really answer a lot of questions for you.

I enjoyed this book and the theories presented. The only issue was that I had to buy several copies because the ones I loaned out never came back.
