In Angels and Demons, Michael Patella, OSB, offers an accessible and fascinating look at supernatural realities as they really are presented in the Bible and Christian tradition. Among the topics Patella explores with a valuable combination of pastoral wisdom and academic rigor are: the role of angels in the ministry of Jesus; the apocalyptic battle in Revelation; the occult, possession, and the work of Satan; what angels are and what they re not; the Last Judgment: how? when?
Readers will appreciate Patella s level-headed appraisal of the views of the supernatural world in the various sections of the Bible. They will be engaged by his lucid account of Who s Who in Hell. They will be both comforted and inspired by his foundational conviction that Christ has claimed creation for the forces of good, evil is on the run, and there is no chance of the tide ever turning the other way, evil actions and human suffering notwithstanding.
