In reviewing this book on angel stories, I feel I need to give more information on my worldview than I normally do. I look at the world from a Christian worldview. That means I look at it through the Bible lens. The Bible says that once we have accepted Christ as God's gift of salvation, our hearts are transformed and we become a new creation.
God teaches in the Bible that His people are like a body. It is comprised of believers all over the world, with Christ Jesus as its head. That means there is plenty of room for cultural differences within the body of Christ in living our daily lives and worshiping God once the foundation is laid. Cultural differences not only refer to different nationalities, but also differences in regional history, lifestyles and preferences.
One of the first things I noticed about the stories in this book is that they were written by people like you and me. They are not intellectuals writing a thesis. All the stories were written in the vernacular. They may have been lightly edited, but have retained their down home feel. It's about people who share some remarkable experiences and sometimes their interpretation of the events.
Angel Stories has two different types of stories about angels. The first kind was more of what I expected to read--stories of mysterious appearances that are difficult to explain from a human perspective. One person shared how a stranger somehow directed her to where she parked her car in a huge lot at an international airport. Another story told of a stranger who restored missing airline tickets in a foreign country. I always enjoy angelic stories like this.
The second type of story in this book are what I call teaching stories. They relate some unusual experiences but also teach a concept. There are more teaching stories than traditional stories. In addition, these stories are immersed in a culture that uses such phrases as: In the glory; releasing or receiving a prophetic word; opening our spiritual senses; mass deliverance; and calling down His kingdom. For the most part, I am a little unfamiliar with this culture so the above phrases made me feel a bit uncomfortable. I believe persons who connect with an experiential and emotional writing style will enjoy this book more than those who prefer an intellectual study of angels. However, I am certain many readers will enjoy the experiences shared by the book's writers.
Laying cultural differences aside, my only reservation about the stories in this book is that they may encourage some readers to be distracted by angels to the point of neglecting the need for salvation through Jesus Christ and spiritual growth toward maturity through the leading of the Holy Spirit.

tickmenotKansas CityGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Ã¢â¬ÅAngel StoriesÃ¢â¬Â by Jonathan NixonMay 10, 2014tickmenotKansas CityGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is a collection of many different types of true angel stories from a variety of people. Although most of the incidents were told by adults, some children also related their encounters. These reports took place in many different parts of the world.
When considering angels, what first comes to mind is the Bible verse, "be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares"-Hebrews 13:2.
Because of that, my expectation for this book was that people would relate experiences they had in time of need, and someone came to their rescue. Often when turning around to thank them, they discovered their helper seemed to have disappeared into thin air. That caused them to suddenly realize their "good Samaritan" was actually an angel in human form. These were the type of stories I anticipated, and there were a few like that.
However, there were angel stories that went in different directions. Some people related experiences of seeing angels in worship settings. Others shared that the angels they saw were not in human form, but appeared without disguise. These reports said that angelic appearances varied. Some were gigantic, some had wings, but some did not, most of the time, the angels were male, but not always.
There were angels that God used to bring healing to people. Other people related that God allowed them to command angels to help them. Still others said that while they could see the angels, people with them could not. However, some could feel the angels' presence, or see some of the results of what they were doing. The variety of angelic experiences seem as diverse as there are types of people.
All of these stories have definitely caused me to ponder what I believe about angels. I certainly learned that angelic experiences can take place in a variety of ways. Ultimately, these reports have to be held up to what the Bible says, and, of course, angels are messengers from God, and are not to be worshiped. I would have liked a few more of the type of stories that I had expected. This was an interesting compilation, and recommend this 4-star book to anyone wants to explore the subject of angelic encounters.
