The vocabulary of the book is pretty basic, with a good deal of run-on sentences and a noticeable amount of other grammatical errors here and there. The book also contains a good amount of fluff, which could irritate some as it is nearly 500 pages long. In spite of this, it does a great job at explaining the alien abduction/brainwashing crisis and cites several cases of people permanently ending their abudction experiences. It also offers a reasonable explanation of how using Jesus' name doesn't completely end the alien encounters of a select few people (one of the authors included), something I had wondered about for years.
The book also documents the efforts of today's Christians who are spreading awareness of the problem, and how reluctant most of Christianity is to face this. Very sad indeed, when the church explains away someone's torturuous experiences as just the babbling of a nutcase. There is a huge problem here, and with the acceptance of evolution on the national level, we are going to be fighting a losing battle if we just sit on the sidelines and pretend that there's nothing wrong. The New Age movement welcomes the abductees with open arms, providing sympathy and explanations, while Christianity labels them as delusional. It's about time that this sad pattern ends.
I don't agree 100% with all of the authors' views, but I would recommend this book to anyone suffering with or even interested in aliens or angels, and of course every Christian should read this.
The problem I have with this book is the lumping in of a "belief" in evolution[very bad according to the authors] and playing (or even having a blood relative, living or dead) with 8-ball, tarot card, new age ideas or belonging to private organizations like Masons as "opening the door" to fallen angels coming right into your life (at a young age) to abduct you. Also, if you're a mainline Protestant or Roman Catholic, these authors make it pretty clear, you're not "born-again"....you're not the right kind of Christian(I'd assume they think the same about Eastern Orthodox, though they didn't mention it).
One of the testimonies made it very clear to me that the authors have some serious blind spots. A testimonial from someone of Mexican descent blamed alot of alien/ufo activity in and over Mexico(as did the authors) on that country's pagan history of Aztec human sacrifice and that it (Mexico) and its people had not repented of that past. There was a belief written in the testimony of the conquistadores trying to wipe out Aztec sacrifice (as if the invading Spaniards cared about *that* - it was the gold they were after!). But what seemed to fly over the heads (no pun intended) of the testimony and the author's supporting commentary, was that the Spanish invasion and occupation was even more of a blood bath than the Aztecs ever produced. And ,there were the forced conversions to Christianity (though I'm sure the authors don't consider Roman Catholicism to be Christian).
And while on that topic of national sin/repentence and ufo activity , what about the history of our (U.S.) country. Our ancestors committed genocide on the indigenous people and forced conversions (mostly puritan and protestant) on the ones that were allowed to live (who were still marginalized from 'white' society and then still often killed, despite becoming Christian). Then there's the horrible history of slavery! So, you see, there are these blind spots in this book when the authors use sin as an example(whether personal/intergenerational or national/cultural)for ufo/abduction activity in Mexico as it was pointed out in the book, but don't mention it in our nation's past. There's also a definite anti-liberal and pro neo-conservative bent to the authors.[Gosh, I wish ufo authors would keep their personal political biases out of their work - whether right/left/center!]
Still, I think the basic idea that 'aliens' may actually be Fallen Angels is sound. Do we really think a highly advanced, intergalactic species would float through peoples walls, take people against their will, repeatedly performing pointless and painful tests on them [focusing mostly on the genital/anal area] and habitually tell abductees lies? Whatever these entities are, they cause abject fear, real pain and probably premature death.
