This book, and the companion Study Guide, are a great resource in studying about Angels. Dr. Jeremiah shares many studies and stories he has researched thoroughly, and supported them with appropriate Scripture references. The result is presented in this very insightful and interesting book. No more need to guess about Angels...take God's own Word for it...it's the only way to know for sure.
What a fascinating book. I think what stood out the most for me was the fact that unlike so many other books on angels, the author didn't rely to heavily on angel "sighting" to prove that angels exist. Instead he relies mostly on what scripture teaches, which I have to admit was a lot more then I realized. He covers such topics as the names of angels and what those meaning are or might be, what we can learn about what they look like, their character, and also what God created them to be (which by the way is not the cute little cherubs that have invested our culture).
This book took quite a while to get through because he does reference a huge amount of scripture that I took the time to look up to make sure that what he was quoting was correct. In the back of the book is a complete listing of all the scripture that the author referenced, which I found quite useful.
If you are looking for a serious book on angels, I would highly recommend this one. One of the best on this subject that I've found yet.
Different people seem to have different opinions about angels. What word(s) comes to your mind when you think of angels? Mysterious? Fascinating? Wings? It's A Wonderful Life :)? David Jeremiah thoroughly explores the truth about angels from God's Word, thus exposing any misconceptions. In this book, you will get the inside scoop on who angels really are, what their roles are, and how they help us (eg. showing us how to worship and how to work). I am pleased to see Dr. Jeremiah repeatedly remind readers to revere God the Creator above all else, including angels who are created beings. Our worship and devotion should be towards God alone...no one else, not even angels. What you learn from this book will draw you closer to God and help you appreciate His awesome wonder and His love even more. The Scripture index and the subject index at the end of the book are really useful. If you're curious and/or confused about angels, this book is for you.
