"In a sea of inspirational titles comes Earth Angels: Stories of Heavenly Encouragement Through Earthly Vessels, which stands out for its heartwarming emphasis on ordinary people doing extraordinary things for others. In author Susan Duke's view, these individuals become answers to prayer, "earthly vessels" who help others to know of God's care for them. The stories are notable and refreshingly well-told." -- Publisher's Weekly
"Duke assembles a delightful collection of stories in Earth Angels. Each chapter expresses an individual's need for encouragement and how God used His people as 'earth angels' to provide the needed uplift.
The author chronicles tender stories filled with silly and serious actions that warm the heart, draw a chuckle, or prompt occasional tears. She stresses that a human's capacity to encourage comes not from his or her own goodness, but from God's compassion. A small act of encouragement, she says, is often the answer to someone's prayer.
Between chapters, Duke includes Bible verses, wise sayings. and 'Wing Tips' -- small bits of advice for giving encouragement. The story-per-chapter format makes reading this book easy to fit around daily activities.
Earth Angels would make a nice addition to a church lounge or a doctor's office. Recommend for readers who enjoy heartwarming stories."
