Summary: "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. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Book by Lewis, James R.
Review: The Gods Have Landed: New Religions from Other Worlds 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 The Gods Have Landed the indispensable reference on the subject. The essays offering a comprehensive account of the religious dimensions of the UFO/flying saucer experience are The Contactees - A Survey; Religious Dimensions of UFO Phenomena; Religious Dimensions of the UFO Abductee Experience; Unarius - Emergent Aspects of an American Flying Saucer Group; Women in the Raelian Movement - New Religious Experiments in Gender and Authority; Waiting for the Ships - Disillusionment and the Revitalization of Faith in Bo and Peep's UFO Cult; Spiritualism and UFO Religion in New Zealand - The International Transmission of Modern Spiritual Movements; ExoTheology - Speculations on Extraterrestrial Life; UFO Contactee Phenomena from a Sociopsychological Perspective - A Review; and The Flying Saucer Contactee Movement 1950-1994 - A Bibliography. -- Midwest Book Review
