Not a feel good book but a get real book. Judith has credibility with me and didn't let me down. Angels are for Real is a very good book bringing biblical understanding and experience together. It helps to bring a healthy understanding regarding angels, spiritual power and everyday life.
I really enjoyed reading "Angels are for real", because these true witnesses show so clearly the truth of what is written in Hebrews 1:14 "Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?" It
gives great comfort and gratitude to know that the Lord sends His angels to guide us en to protect us. I found
This book held my complete attention from beginning to end. I am a vast reader of all topics, but have been completely disappointed in the "new age" angel books that have been published. Judith nailed it. This is the real thing. Her presentation is one that can be followed by all readers from beginners to the advanced. My family, friends, and associates will be receiving a copy for Christmas.
By the way, I wish other reviewers or so called book critics would understand the basics before placing a review. No Catholic who knows anything about the Catholic faith has ever worshiped a religious image. When we pray whether it be kneeling before a statue, or praying to Mary; this is not worship, but a complete expression of love and honor. Do not think that venerating saints and angels are somehow a form of worship. The angels and saints are God's "handiwork" . We should absolutely acknowledge, love, and give them honor.
This is a book that did not hold my attention, but that does not mean it will not hold yours. If you are interested in reading about angels, it might be the book for you. I am not into angel worship, but I believe in angels pretty much as described in the book, but not necessarily in the stories. I do not put God in a box, but at the same time I think we get off track on angels and our relationship with angels. The best place to research angel is in the Bible_ do a word study on angels.
This is the first book that I have read by this author before and I was rather disappointed. I did not think all the stories held true to scripture.
I received this book free from the book review program at Bethany House Publishing in exchange for writing an honest review.
Judith Macnutt's book "Angels are for real" is promoted as being inspiring, true stories and biblical answers. There are many reviews in the first two pages of the book. Each review is from a prominent person, including the following:
Randy Clark, founder and overseer, The Apostolic Network of Global Awakening
J. Lee Grady, contributing editor, Charisma
Pastors Bill and Beni Johnson, Bethel Church, Redding California
Richard Rohr, OFM; Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Don Williams, Ph D; director, Vineyard Leadership Institute.
Each of the above gave the book a glowing review. With all the recommendations from prominent people, a Christian reader would have high expectations for this book.
The two and a half page forward was written by the authors husband. It is evident that he supports his wife and her book.
I was disappointed in this book. I had never read anything by this author before and was excited to get to review it. I love reading about angels. However "Angels are for real" did not hold my interest at all. I love reading about angels but this book just was not the type of stories about angels that I expected. I just did not feel that the stories portrayed angels in the light I was accustomed too. The stories just did not have the feel of true stories to me. I would not recommend this book to friends. I give it a Two Star.
