Publisher's Description

Leading Baptist Pastor Teaches the Truth about Angels

Myths about angels are everywhere. Do we become angels when we die? Are angels always hovering nearby, on guard to protect us from danger? Can we talk to them? Many of our ideas about angels come from the media, which is more interested in ratings and ticket sales than truth. As Christians it's important to understand what angels really are.

Pastor Jack Graham walks readers through Scripture, revealing the truth about angels and their roles as worshipers of the Lord, witnesses to his glory, and warriors fighting on his behalf. Focusing on practical application, Dr. Graham separates fact from fiction, encouraging you to become a better worshiper, warrior, and witness.

Includes end-of-chapter questions. A small-group curriculum DVD will also be available.

Author Bio

Jack Graham ( is pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham arrived at Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999 the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in the northern suburb of Plano.

Thriving with more than 41,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with six weekend worship services, about three hundred Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006 the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area about 20 miles north of Plano.

Dr. Graham served as Honorary Chairman of the 2015 National Day of Prayer; he has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members, and as president of the SBC Pastors' Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including Unseen, You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are You Fit for Life? Powering Up, and Courageous Parenting, coauthored by his wife, Deb. Dr. Graham's passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons, and email messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1970 and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in church and proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    I love angels. They're are the most directed connections with God. I always speak to my guardian angel Andrew for my necessities. My idea is that God is too busy sometimes for hearing from us and he needs these messengers that I call the postmen of God.

    Once I have had the privilege of seen one of these creatures. I was in a very sad phase of my existence, it was morning and my day was to starting. I looked in a corner of my bedroom and appeared this vision. A golden kid. A kid I couldn't precisely tell the age of. Although he was smiling, these eyes impressively profound had seen a lot of world and had a profundity for that age that couldn't be so young, but much more old.

    He was looking at me and he was smiling of a tender and warm smile. He was sat, and with an arm he was holding up his head. His ears were extremely long and thin. He had a round face, beautiful eyes and hair. He was completely golden.

    Later I thought: now I will watched somewhere else because the angel will remain. But no....The angel disappeared. Some golden sparkles appeared as for saying me that He left and then nothing else.

    I have angels in every corners of the house, in my bedroom, in the kitchen, in the corridor. My favorite angel is Clarence from the movie by Frank Capra because he is human and very often we meet as also tells the author in Angels a lot of Human Angels as well.

    Said that, I requested with enthusiasm the book written by Reverend Jack Graham Angels published by Bethany House this past June 21st through NetGalley.

    It was summer-time and unfortunately I couldn't read it at that time.It wasn't still time.

    I did it these past days and I was truly shocked for the beauty of this book. I am catholic and I read every Sunday at the mass so I know the scriptures. It was an enchanting experience.

    More than a book about angels, and trust me it is a book about angels, it's also the story of our Christianity thanks to many important, fundamental Bible passages, daily life anecdotes of the author or people he met during his life.

    Angels are connected with God but we mustn't never forget that WE must live our existence, not our angels. We can't ask to them the impossible.

    There are specific roles, says the author, that can't be played by those celestial creatures.

    I was impressed while I was reading the book about the religiosity of this pastor. Reverend Jack Graham discovered God and Jesus since his early childhood because his parents very religious and enthusiastic. Then once, close to their Arkansas' village afforded a pastor in a tent for a week and the vision of Jesus exploded in the mind of little Jack vividly and it hasn't never abandoned him.

    The Bible passages for discovering the power of Angels? The encounter between Saint Mary and Archangel Saint Gabriel announcing her the arrival of Jesus Christ, while she was the promising spouse of Joseph.

    Then the story of Abram ready to sacrifice his son for God, a sacrifice unwanted by God, who tasted the religiosity of Abram, then the story of Hagar...

    The book wants to focus also on our actual condition.

    We rush. Always, and everywhere. We rush when we are at home, we rush to the office, we rush when we return home, we rush for going to the cinema.

    We rush while we pray.

    We have a lot of fears: the fear of losing our job, the fear of losing our health, the fear of dying, the fear of terrorism the fear of living.

    But insists the author, in Jesus, and God we can find a firm and proper answer.

    Angels will always watch over us.

    Not only: reverend Graham is more than sure that each of us has a guardian angel and wagons of angels watching over us.

    Reverend Graham gives us also some suggestions for living better.

    An old saying: "Show me your friends and I will show you your future" is one of them." Like also: "Walk with the wise and become wise." (From the Proverbs.)

    And if you want to search for angels: "Hang out with lightness, you'll get brighter."

    Graham tells that the three quarters of angels have chosen God and not Lucifer, the other ones became fallen angels, and that the Golden Army close to God, is experiencing an existence of Light close to the Creator.

    A lot of anecdotes while you will read the book you will see, will involve also the sphere of darkness, so Lucifer, and the mundane temptations.

    At the end of the book the author remembers that sometimes we need some hope. A special section with precious advice directly from the Bible.

    A great reading. I suggest the book to everyone and in particular to all that people, Angel lovers who wants to discover the most important passages in the Bible and New Testament where these creatures play a big role. The book is also tremendously inspiring for living a good and christian life.

    Surely a gift very appreciated for this Christmas.

    This book is more than it appears.

    Often times when you see a book on angels it really focuses on angels, perhaps too much. But Jack is up front that this book is different. It really is focused on Jesus and the Father and how they use angels.

    I absolutely loved this book. It flowed with truth and gave me a better understanding of how God uses angels to minister to us. Every time I picked this book up I walked away with a sense of Gods great love for us.

    Jack also used a lot of personal stories and other peoples stories through out and I always engage with that.

    Overall, a great book that I highly recommend.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Angels by Jack Graham is an excellent book for people who want to get a biblical view of angels. I could tell that Graham did his research on biblical accounts of angels. I liked how he applied it to our lives and how we relate to God. He didn't just take angels out of the context of a relationship with God. I also liked how he included day to day examples of how knowing different things about angels would and should affect our lives.

    I have never read a book on Angels quite like this. Very different, not your typical book on "angels". At first I thought it wouldn't mention anything on angels, but how Jack Graham does it, is weaves Biblical stories of people in the Bible who encountered angel activity and explains the whys, and hows, and has discipleship lessons of how to live in obedience to God and experience this activity for yourself, lots of practical applications. An encouraging, awesome read. It tells of the different situations characters in the Bible were in and shows how God responds with His Angelic help. It interweaves in the Character of God, and how He loves us and works in peoples lives. This book is based on the Word of God and includes plenty of Scripture references to back up his teaching. It also includes beautiful stories of modern day people who have had supernatural encounters with angels.. I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    Who They Are, What They Do, and Why It Matters

    By Dr Jack Graham

    Got questions about angels, are they just myths, or are they created by God. Dr Grahams book will help answers these questions. Dr Jack Graham covers the subject of angels from all points and shares some very informative facts about who angels are and what they do. He shares different stories about how angels have helped protect people and ministered to others.

    He give scripture to back up his facts as to where they come from and who they are and he divide the facts into four parts.

    1. Wisdom of Angels

    2. Protection of Angels

    3. Encouragement of Angels

    4. Presence of Angels

    Then by dividing each of those parts into smaller and easy to understand information, you will see a strong case for the reality of angels and what they do and why they do it. There is a good chance after you read this book, that you will remember a time or two when an angel helped you.

    I think Jack Graham gets his point across and proves that angels do exist and provided to us by God as a guardian to guide us each day. This information will be helpful in Bible Studies and discussions, easy to read and inspiring.

    I received this book free from Bethany House Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255
