Would You Recognize an Angel if You Saw One?
The majority of earths inhabitants believe in angels. Yet many of us cannot claim to have seen one. Why?
Perhaps its because in order to encounter one, we first have to learn what to look for and how to look! We live in a world where the natural and supernatural overlap. Angels are constantly on mission from God and constantly at work in the world.
From the Garden of Eden to the book of Revelation, Scripture is filled with hundreds of references to these wondrous creatures. In this creative work, Scot McKnight explores what the Bible saysand doesnt sayabout these majestic beings.
And thats deeply important, because angels are still on mission today. They express Gods love, confirm his presence, and even lead humans in redemptive worship. Dont just believe in angels. Learn how to recognize these messengers of God that are all around us, and know how God might be using them to affect our lives.
