Why do we have such an ongoing interest in the possibility of alien life forms? If aliens visited Earth, would that encounter leave us with an inner impression that there is more than the everyday world surrounding us? Using the sci-fi analogies of E. T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, this book reveals that this is exactly what has already happened. We have actually had an encounter with a true extraterrestrial—but an extraterrestrial from another space, another time, another dimension, the ultimate extraterrestrial: God. Close Encounters of the Divine Kind is about knowing God and having contact with Him. It is not about religion. God has given us a powerful communication about Himself in His book, the Bible, and He wants each one of us to enter into another dimension of reality through intimate contact with the Holy Spirit. This book is an invitation to have a first hand encounter of a divine kind with God.
