Summary: Lieb (English/humanities, Univ. of Illinois, Chicago) explores modern attempts to "technologize" Ezekiel's Old Testament vision of a fiery chariot in the sky as evidence of the technological superiority of God's righteous anger. He shows how the biblical narrative has touched modern cults and political movements such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Latter-Day Saints (Mormons), and the Nation of Islam. UFOs are touched upon, but half of the book looks at the genesis, ideology, and societal impact of the Nation of Islam and Elijah Muhammad, as well as Louis Farrakhan. Lieb views these men as "children of Ezekiel" since both molded various aspects of Ezekiel's vision to fit their modern world views.
