Carefully examining the concept of prophecy in the Hebrew Bible, he characterizes a "prophetic state of consciousness" and explains how it may share biological and metaphysical mechanisms with the DMT effect. Examining medieval commentaries on the Hebrew Bible, Strassman reveals how Jewish metaphysics provides a top-down model for both the prophetic and DMT states, a model he calls "theoneurology."

Part 1 of Godless, "Rejecting God", tells the story of how I moved from devout preacher to atheist and beyond. Part 2, "Why I Am an Atheist", presents my philosophical reasons for unbelief. Part 3, "What's Wrong with Christianity", critiques the bible (its reliability as well as its morality) and the historical evidence for Jesus. Part 4, "Life Is Good!", comes back to my personal story, taking a case to the United States Supreme Court, dealing with personal trauma, and experiencing the excitement of Adventures in Atheism.

I started reading this book to understand what the shift was in this person from their faith in Jesus Christ to atheism. I found it interesting how his change came about, but did not appreciate his soliciting me to follow him in his unbelief. Being offended, I stopped reading the book as it became quite boring at this point.

I had the impression the storyline was incomplete. There didn't seem to be any payoff in the end. No climax. I think there were some lost opportunities in the story to really make it more intriguing and dramatic. I was underwhelmed. It was a good premise of a story, but nothing really happens with it. It's kind of hard to unring this bell.

In this disturbing exposé, journalist Paul L. Williams describes a secret alliance forged at the close of World War II by the CIA, the Sicilian and US mafias, and the Vatican to thwart the possibility of a Communist invasion of Europe. Williams presents evidence suggesting the existence, in many European countries, of "stay-behind" units consisting of 5,000 to 15,000 military operatives.

This book is not for anyone who accepts and believes the propaganda the media publishes about American politics, it's political leaders, and the agenda for this nation. Anyone reading this book, and condescendingly dismisses it as little more than a conspiracy theory with little to no substance supporting it, does so out of their own ignorance, and likely to their own peril. Although some of the claims made by this book are unbelievable, there is more than enough published literature to support them. This book is not for the "status quo".

Ingo Swann - renowned psi researcher - reveals a long-held secret series of experiences with a "deep black" agency whose apparent charter was simple: UFOs and extraterrestrials on the moon and worries about ET telepathic/mind control powers. The agency was so secret that it had no paper trail, and hence no written secrecy agreements.

While the subject and core of this book is intriguing, there is really about an hour's worth of salient material, coupled with five hours of blather to stretch the book into six hour. There is simply not enough good material in this book to justify its' length. It wasted the majority of my time.

In his 1998 book, The Threat, Jacobs uncovered disconcerting reports about aliens' plans for the future of Earth. He reported that a "change" is coming; a future when very human-like hybrids would intermingle with humans in everyday life. "Soon we will all be together," the aliens said. "Soon everyone will be happy and everyone will know his place."

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The sub-title piqued my interest, and the book did not disappoint. The accounts of the 4 people whom alleged to have been abducted by extraterrestrial aliens tell a compelling story under hypnosis of their experiences with their abductors. If true, global society has a secret enemy that seeks to subvert it for its' own existence here on Earth.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but I didn't.

Any additional comments?

If this story is true as told, society has a problem with a secret invasion that cannot be stopped...by human efforts.

This work of speculative nonfiction combines meticulous fact-finding from historian/researcher Richard M. Dolan and forward-leaning scenarios from journalist/screenwriter Bryce Zabel on the world's most mind-bending subject. The authors predict radical changes after official acknowledgment that at least some UFOs are intelligently controlled craft from somewhere other than Earth.

For the Biblical scholar, this book came across as an ill-conceived fantasy. By not using the Biblical and known extra-Biblical literature in writing this story, the author missed huge opportunities to write dramatically. Instead, what is written seems to come across as "Luciferian apologetics". I just found it to be a waste of my time.
