The ancient astronaut and Biblical UFO hypotheses are not new. However, no one seems to want to take the matter to the next logical step. If Ezekiel’s "wheel within a wheel" and Moses’ "pillar of fire and cloud" were forerunners of today’s UFOs, then the Star of Bethlehem and the brilliant cloud to which Jesus ascended must be treated in the same vein.
When Biblical descriptions of anomalous aerial phenomena are overlaid on that of modern-day UFO reports, the picture seems to meld as one. Once the evidence has been presented, the reader is led to a conclusion that is at best convincing and at least though provoking.
Are you willing to risk having your world-view shaken? Read what others have said about "The UFO - Jesus Connection."
In The UFO - Jesus Connection, author David E. Twichell shows how aliens have interacted with people since the days of Biblical contact with angels. The ancient astronaut and Biblical UFO hypotheses are not new.
However, Twichell claims no one seems to want to take the matter to the next logical step. As Twichell states,"If Ezekiel's 'wheel within a wheel and Moses' pillar of fire and cloud' were forerunners of today's UFOs, then the Star of Bethlehem and the brilliant cloud to which Jesus ascended must be treated in the same vein."
Twichell's book opens with his family's nighttime encounter with a UFO in the summer of 1962. At the age of 14, Twichell, his older sister Ann, and their parents witnessed a green sky and a billowy cloud hovering above the roof of their home, which contained yellow, red, and white round lights. Twichell's mother declared it was the second coming of Christ, but willingly recanted that statement the next morning when the Detroit Free Press reported it was just "Northern Lights." This report satisfied Twichell's mother and most Detroiters, except for Twichell, who never forgot the experience.
AAER staff have met Dave Twichell, his wife Laura, and sister Ann. They are very intelligent people who do not exaggerate the truth even though they are uncertain why so many unusual things have happened to their family.
Since the Twichells are familiar with the abduction scenario, AAER asked if they had considered the possibility that maybe their whole family was abducted that night in 1962 for which the aliens may have blocked their memories? It is a question without an answer.
Twichell's book nicely blends his family's personal encounters with ghosts, death, precognition, NDE's, OBE's, astral travel, angels and religion. Readers familiar with popular books of the 1960's and 1970's will appreciate Twichell's discussion of Edgar Cayce, Kirlian photography, the shroud of Turin and more, to better understand events of today.
Always respectful of his religious upbringing, Twichell never offends any readers, no matter what their religious background might be. The book's cover photo features a famous 15th century painting depicting Mary and the baby Jesus with a man and a dog in the background pointing to a UFO in the sky. It is a painting which begs for an explanation as to its true meaning.
Twichell's book is enjoyable reading and will take readers back to their spiritual moments when they wondered, was there a connection between UFOs and Jesus? Review provided by AAER.
David E. Twichell makes the connection between what you think you know about the Bible, UFO's, and Jesus' life and times and what you were always told was so, much more interesting and a lot more exciting! He also adds his own poignant encounter(s) with the unexplained for more than good reason.
Twichell's explorations and investigations into the UFO enigma and biblical scholarship will undoubtedly urge any thinking reader to re-examine their own beliefs - and with good reason! Any writer, who can do this, is simply brilliant and Twichell is no exception.
David E. Twichell is surely to be added to the growing list of luminaries who has bloomed out the once "old staunch Midwest" view of the world. This surprising new view which Twichell embodies is breathing fresh air onto the ever-expanding landscape of inner/outer exploration, enlightenment and personal core knowledge.
