Pastor Paul is a young seminary graduate called as interim pastor to a small rural church. He is full of zeal, but mostly for self-promotion. He sincerely loves the Lord but his past emotional wounds leave him vulnerable and in need of attention and affirmation. He constantly frustrates his angel, Saldu, who tries to steer him toward a more humble attitude. Sarah Edwards is a new church member, a recent widow who gets saved at age 71. Unknown to her, Sarah has two angels to help disciple her and she is maturing rapidly in the faith. She is confused by her prophetic gifting, which leads her to offend some church members. She also prayer walks in front of Pastor Pauls house. When his wife sees her pacing back and forth "talking to no one," Paul quickly writes her off as a "wacko." Through the lives of Paul and Sarah you will see that the really wonderful news is that living a life pleasing to God has nothing to do with gritting your teeth and trying harder (again and again and again). God rewards you for simple, loving, serving actions throughout your days, stepping outside your own concerns to truly see others in His name.

DonutChristchurch, NZAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Captivating ReadMarch 4, 2014DonutChristchurch, NZAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was really good and I was blessed to get it free. I haven't read a book quite like this before. Loved the angel side. It was certainly one I couldn't leave alone easily. It really pinpointed what is truly important in life on earth wrapped in a captivating story well worth the read. What I learned is to be very careful not to presume the Lord's will with what seems the natural, logical choice. I hope the author has many more books coming.

The characters and scriptures intertwined in the book bring it to life. It will change how you view intercession, and remind you that humility is God's way for us even though the world would differ. The last chapter brought me tears of joy at the love of our Savior.
His ChrisFort Myers, FLAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I've read the manuscript, and it is dynamite!December 19, 2010His ChrisFort Myers, FLAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5How may I reach Jackie directly? I have here excerpts from comments written after reading her manuscript over a year ago! I wrote (but couldn't find her address),
~~ excellently written... Guided by Holy Spirit..Story rings true...able to crawl into Sarah's character and grow...terrific treatment of choice vs. free will, plus the issue of healing, plus the main issue of humility which is the bedrock of this book and our lives in Christ...shocked at some of the outworkings in Paul...the most supernaturally natural element to have the veil ripped away between the material and spiritual world. I know of no other book that covers prayer, praise and intercession as intimately and completely as ANGELS OF HUMILITY. I plan to advance-order it this month from CBD and give it to many in 2011.
