"Angels are for Real" by Judith MacNutt is an interesting book and certainly creates thought about the angels and the spiritual realm. It was a little disorganized at times, though, as often the stories that she intersperses throughout do not always fit with the chapter at hand.
This book was a decent book, though at times it was laborious to read. MacNutt has clearly had much experience with and done a considerable amount of research on angels and the spiritual realm. She tells many stories, some her own and some that others have shared with her, about encounters with angels. She uses Scripture at times to back up her beliefs about angels, and although I am not sure I always agreed with her interpretations, it certainly encouraged thought. She also uses historical references outside of the canon of Scripture to help expound on the angels and their ranks, but I wish she would have been a little more detailed in how her research had brought her to the conclusions she writes about.
Overall, the book is definitely intriguing and was a much needed encouragement to see life with a more spiritual outlook, knowing that there is much more to the spiritual realm than many of us give credit. I simply wished MacNutt was a little more thorough in backing up her beliefs.
I received a free copy of this book from Chosen Books in exchange for this review.
Angels are for Real by Judith MacNutt advertised as containing inspiring, true stories and Biblical answers. Mrs MacNutt's book has an accessible, comprehensive and encouraging guide into the world of angels. She discusses angels and how to recognize them at work in each of our own life. Her book offers insight of miraculous encounters of others and her own life. She also tells of Biblical narritives proving her theories. This book discribes angel's various appearances, their activities, their importance to our life, and also an insight into fallen angels and/or Satanic angels.
This book is an uplifting book on angels. To say that I enjoyed reading this easy to read and understand book would be a gross understatement. I recieved so much information and insight into the world of which I live and the protection that I daily recieve from angels sent by God. I felt a blessing from reading this book, no let me say that I realized the blessing that I was already receiving and had always been receiving. Thank you Mrs MacNutt for writing this book and thank you Chosen Publishing for publishing this awe inspiring book.
I have always been intrigued with angels and have believed in them....and I've had a few encounters with them too. "Angels are for Real" is a fascinating book by Judith MacNutt, who uses several Scriptural references, as well as real life encounters of others' experiences with angelic beings. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
Publisher Description: Angels have a vital role in the Kingdom of God--and in the lives of believers. Yet many Christians treat the existence of angels lightly or fail to consider them at all. In Angels Are Real Judith MacNutt pulls back the curtain on this intriguing topic, recounting inspiring, true-life stories and miraculous interactions, revealing what the Bible says about these heavenly beings, and offering insight into the spiritual realm. She draws on solid scriptural support to explore what angels look like what they do why they are important in believers' lives the heavenly hierarchy what fallen angels are and more. Angels Are Real is an accessible, comprehensive, encouraging guide for Christians. When believers grasp the importance of angels to God--and themselves--they will better understand God's power and his extraordinary love.
Thanks Bethany House Publishers for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my review.
Judith MacNutt, co-founder of Christian Healing Ministries has written a book about angels that tells of her experiences with these heavenly beings. She gives scripture references to explain what angels are and also fills the book with true accounts of angelic encounters that she and others have experienced. She also details the difference between demons and angels. Judith plainly states that while we are not to seek angels or worship these beings, we can appreciate their role in our lives and thank God for sending them to protect and help us. I found the true life stories to be the most interesting part of the book. Although I find the subject of angels fascinating, I did not find this to be as compelling a read as other books I have read on the subject. Bottom lineâ€”not a great book but not a bad one either.
