“UFOs: God’s Chariots? offers a fascinating critical survey of the aerial phenomenon since it essentially began in 1947…. Highly recommended for reading and reflection.”
—Robert Ellwood, Professor of World Religions, University of Southern California

“Peters’ astrotheology takes us on a wise adventure into a lively cosmos, where neither ‘belief ’ nor ‘unbelief ’ answers the questions about UFOs and ETI.”
—Catherine Keller, Professor of Theology, Drew University

Are UFOs celestial saviors, coming to save Earth from self-destruction?

Are UFOnauts advancing human evolution by birthing hybrid children?

Is it time for a new “astrotheology” that enshrines the UFO phenomenon at the same level as the space sciences at NASA and SETI? UFOs: God’s Chariots? uncovers and exposes the clandestine spiritual dimensions within the UFO phenomenon. UFOs vibrate with transcendence, omniscience, perfection, and redemption.

UFOs: God’s Chariots? delves deeply into government conspiracies, analyzes the newest models of close encounter interpretation, and reveals the results of The Peters ETI Religious Crisis Survey, in which self-identified believers were asked if making contact with an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization would undermine our historic religious traditions. They said no.

Does this mean we’re ready to share our pews with aliens?
