Synopsis: This is a comprehensive account of the religious dimensions of the UFO/flying saucer experience.
The Gods Have Landed is a comprehensive account of the religious dimension of the UFO/flying saucer experience. It examines the religious meanings attached to UFOs by the larger society as well as specific movements that claim inspiration from "Space Brothers" and other extra-terrestrial sources. It addresses the religious dimension of the phenomenon of alien abductions, particularly the impact of extra-terrestrial life on Christian theology.
Of special interest are the surveys of primary and secondary materials that make this book the indispensable reference on the subject.
"The whole idea of taking seriously, in a scholarly sense, a phenomenon that has a widespread following but has so far been largely scorned by serious scholars is quite appealing; it means that this book is breaking new and important ground." -- Timothy Miller, University of Kansas
"It provokes interesting intersections with ancient and modern religious ideas. Its strength is in taking the religious dimension of UFOs and abductees' experiences seriously. I particularly like its historical framework and the extensive bibliography." -- David Christopher Lane, Mount San Antonio College
Review: The respected psychoanalyst, Jung pointed out many years ago that we had lost the ability to believe in salvation through a deity. In this age of doubt, when miracles are scarce, where will we, as a race, find our salvation? The interdisciplinary essays in The Gods Have Landed attempt to answer this question by exploring the UFO sighting/abduction phenomenon as a 20th-century religious experience. Even if you don't believe that reports of UFO abduction are true, this book will prove fascinating to anyone with an interest in UFOlogy, sociology, psychology or religious studies.
