Make no mistake: these are indeed the “End Times.” But there will be no Rapture, and the Angels that descend to Earth are not the overgrown fairies so popular in the modern mythos. They are flesh-and-blood beings that are not supernatural, but superhuman—they are the parents of all mankind, returning to lead us into their advanced society. ... There will come a day of reckoning, not as John of Patmos prophesied, but just as shocking, just as awe-inspiring, and even more devastating. The entire world—all of humanity, from babes in arms to the eldest pensioners, from the poorest peon to the mightiest tycoon, atheists and acolytes, Jews and Buddhists, Methodists and Muslims—will fall to its knees as the Sons of God, the Angels of Antiquity, return to reclaim their Garden.
