Hey ATS, I'm curious if anyone has managed to read Unmasking the Enemy: Visions Around the World and Global Deception in the End Times, Nelson S. Pacheco & Tommy R. Blann, Bendan Press, Inc., 1993.
Sad that this is not available in a Kindle edition yet. It is still quite topical and the authors could easily transform a pdf version into a mobi file. I finally tracked down a print copy that was falling apart and still paid $75. Nevertheless, I have no regrets, as this is one of the more complete and wide-ranging Christian approaches to the UFO phenomenon. The perspective is Catholic (which is rather unheard of in ufology circles) and some evangelicals have accused Pacheco of "divinizing" Mary during his coverage of Marian apparitions, but this is not the case. Overall, the authors draw on non-Christian resources (Keel, Vallee) to reveal degrees of high strangeness in ufo events which lead one away from the extraterrestrial hypothesis and toward a multi-dimensional approach which is then interpreted in terms of Christian theology regarding angels and demons and what sort of machinations may be in play thanks to various "powers in principalities." Very worthwhile and an obvious influence on the much less expensive "Exo Vaticana," but minus that book's deep suspicion toward Rome.
