Guardian angels. Divine messengers. Fiery spirits. Winged cherubim. The realm where these beings live is invisible to us. Most of the time, so are the angels themselves. So how do we know theyre real? How can we be sure theyre there? And what do we really know about them?
Angels: a 90-Day Devotional about Gods Messengers explores over one hundred Bible passages in which angels make an appearance. In addition, there are Q and As, myths busters, hymns, Bible story retellings, pop culture references, and trivia that help you sort fact from fiction.
So spend the next ninety days really exploring the world of angels, and learn more about what is taking place all around you.

Book: Angels by Christa Kinde, Zonderkidz, 2015
Genre: Devotional/Bible Study
Target Audience: Boys and Girls 10-16
Subjects: Angels, Biblical History
Summary: Angels, demons, vampires, aliens, unicorns, dragons. They inspire the curiosity in us, make us ask Would what it be like if it were real? If I truly encountered one?. Most of the things in that list arent real. They are fantasy, legends. Some are real things but far more ordinary and simple than the legends about them. Not so with angels. They are very real and every bit as awe-inspiring as the legends say. In fact, they are much more impressive than often given credit for. Rather than being a cute baby with wings, angels are powerful beings created to serve God. They are warriors, messengers, and His servants to do His bidding, whether it be to announce a new life or destroy a life. This devotional gives you ninety days of exploring exactly what angels truly are and what they arent. Answering common questions or discussing popular ideas, the author presents a Bible verse, gives a short discussion, more verses to help answer the question or explain the idea, then gives a few thought provoking questions or further Scripture to study.
Notes: Christa Kinde is the author of speculative fiction series speculating on what it would be like if a person could identify the angels around and have friendships with them. In this devotional, she steps away from the what if and looks at what the Bible actually says about angels the facts. Shes not afraid of any of the questions of myths, but answers them with honesty and backs up her answers with Scripture. One great example is the question of how many angels they are. The page reads like this:
Q: Are there angels?
Q: How many?
A: A lot
Q: Can you be more specific?
A: Only as specific as Scripture gets. Take a look at these verses:
Then she proceeds to give three verses discussing how many angels, then explains that in Greek, the largest number was 10,000. So the people who wrote about the heavenly host pulled the biggest number they knew, then told us to multiply it. Are there millions, billions, trillions? Only God knows. But we do know that those who caught a glimpse of heavens angels ended up with boggled minds. Words failed. Numbers fell short. Its beyond our understanding. beyond our imagining and entirely real.
I highly recommend this as either a devotional or a Bible Study. The Dig a little deeper section at the end of each devo allows for it to be explored further. Also, each lesson is meant to have at least a hint of application, giving the reader something to consider for their own life.
