CHILDREN OF EZEKIEL Aliens, Ufos, the Crisis of Race & the Advent of End Time

By Michael Lieb

Durham & London: Duke University Press. New. 1998. First Edition. Softcover. 0822322684 . New Book - small remainder marking across bottom edge of pages. Description: Are Milton's Paradise Lost, Ronald Reagan's "Star Wars" missile defence program, our culture's fascination with UFOs and alien abductions, and Louis Farrakhan's views on racial Armageddon somehow linked? In Children of Ezekiel Michael Lieb reveals the connections between these phenomena and the way culture has persistently related the divine to the technological. In a work of special interest at the approach of the millennium, Lieb traces these and other diverse cultural moments-all descended from the prophet Ezekiel's vision of a fiery divine chariot in the sky-from antiquity to the present, across high and low culture, to reveal the pervasive impact of this visionary experience on the modern world. ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall .
