Publisher's Description

From the collaborator of the blockbuster bestseller Proof of Heaven comes the definitive book proving angels are real, all around us, and interacting in our lives every day.

In March 2015, millions worldwide were captivated by news reports of the dramatic rescue of an eighteen month old girl, Lily Groesbeck, who’d somehow survived fourteen hours in an overturned car partially submerged in an icy-cold Utah river after her mother apparently lost control of the vehicle. A voice the four responding officers assumed was the child’s mother still trapped inside spurred them on: “Help me, help me.” Yet, once the two victims were recovered, it was clear that the voice could not have come from Lily’s mother: she’d been killed on impact.

New York Times bestselling author Ptolemy Tompkins, with the help of Tyler Beddoes, one of the responding officers who helped rescue Lily, will explain this modern-day miracle and the existence of angels in our world.

Proof of Angels weaves real-life stories into a rich narrative, exploring the history, nature, and significance of angels in our lives. With an introduction by Colleen Hughes, the editor-in-chief of Angels on Earth magazine, Proof of Angels proves that the barrier between the spiritual and the scientific is less certain than we often think. Not only does Tompkins offer a highly entertaining look into a universally fascinating topic, but he also delivers a fresh and deeply reassuring message: we are not alone.

Editorial Reviews

“Tompkins' writing is inspired, a gift for those interested in the mystery of angelic encounters.”
"Tompkins intersperses other historical accounts of angelic visitations through history to further build his case for the roles angels play in humans' lives. Whether one agrees with the theology presented or not, the story of Lily's rescue is touching. Tompkins' writing is inspired, a gift for those interested in the mystery of angelic encounters."

    Proof of Angels weaves real-life stories into a rich narrative, exploring the history, nature, and significance of angels in our lives. With an introduction by Colleen Hughes, the editor-in-chief of Angels on Earth magazine, Proof of Angels proves that the barrier between the spiritual and the scientific is less certain than we often think.

    We are told in Psalm 91.11, For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. When the devil launched his mutiny attack against God he took one-third of Heaven with him. However it was the remaining loyal two-thirds that beat him and kicked the bad ones out. It is this remaining two-thirds that have charge over us. Angels are Messengers. In the Book of Daniel, Daniel sends up a prayer. We are told an angel is sent with the answer immediately. That angel encounters a stronger bad angel and they fight for two weeks until Michael, the Archangel, is sent to beat this bad angel and let the messenger angel go to Daniel. The servant warns the Prophet that the Syrian Army had surrounded them. The Prophet prays that the servants eyes would be opened and he is sent out again. This time the servant also sees chariots of fire on which are Angels. Read how the story ends in 2Kings Chapter 6. I mention all of this to let you know that God is still using His Angels the same way He used them back then. Mr. Tompkins has given us a wonderful book to help us see just what is going on. This is a book that will help you focus on The Lord and how He uses His angels in our lives. This is also a book that will make a great gift to friends and family so that they can have a mind-change about angels as well..

    Proof of Angels is an amazing book! This is one of my top favorite books ever! I loved reading about the stories about the angels. A few stories confirmed my thoughts from events in my life concerning angels. I do need to warn that there are some graphic scenes that some readers may get upset over, but I was not bother by them.

    I just can't tell how much I loved this book!!

    100 plus stars

    I received this book from Howard Books in exchange for my honest opinion, which was given.

    You may remember a recent story in the news of a car accident in Spanish Fork, California when a vehicle overturned trapping a young baby inside. The mother was killed instantly, but when the police officers arrived, they heard a woman's voice telling them to Hurry and help! Through a series of circumstances known as Godwinks, the young baby was saved and the story impacted the world, that angels were watching over the child and leading help to where the child was trapped.

    As a believer in Christ, I know that angels exist because the Bible says they do and I believe I have had my own angel encounter even though I didn't see any. The Bible is clear on their purpose and we have to be careful to test all things because we never know if it comes from God or our enemy Satan, the god of this world. In the book, Proof of Angels by Ptolemy Tompkins and Tyler Beddoes, it highlights that there are circumstances happening around us that clearly indicate that we are not alone. That there is a spiritual world that operates within our own even though we do not see it. We have to be cautious however, that we do not fall into the tendency to worship angels because they are created by God and are sent by Him to serve in whatever He has called them to do. Whether to lead rescuers to help a trapped baby or to encourage others going through a difficult time.

    This book defines some of those circumstances through true stories told by those who have experienced them from 9/11 to a school bombing to even random encounters where someone's health was on the line and through a series of random events, all of these people escaped certain tragedy and feel confident it was angels that saved them all. The book primarily highlights the Spanish Fork event and the circumstances that followed with the officers involved and the media frenzy. We know that there are times where angel occurrences seem prevalent as in the 90's where angels were the main event both in the media and in the bookstores.

    I received Proof of Angels by Ptolemy Tompkins and Tyler Beddoes compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest evaluation. The only thing that bothers me about the book is the limited references to what the Bible has to say on the subject between angels and demons or fallen angels. With that being said, it would be easy to see how people might be lead astray not in that angels don't exist but what their purpose is, who sends them and what their limits are. There are some biblical references but not enough to truly educate the reader in my mind that angels do exist because the Bible says they do. More references are given to outside authorities opinions on angels like Thomas Aquinas, Dante, Shakespeare, Saint Augustine and Saint Paul. There is quite a bit of reference of the Mormon beliefs and thus the reader should be cautioned to compare this to what the Bible says to be true. In my opinion, this one rates 3 out of 5 stars for me.
