    Awesome Read!

    Erich van Daniken really does do his research. I didn't want to put the book down! Very interesting the way he interprets verses in the Bible to how the ancients would have tried to describe ET visitors and spaceships.

    Highly Recommended

    If you are a fan of any of Von Daniken's other books you will love this one. If you are a believer or curious on ancient astronaut theories then this is the book for you.
