Angels: A Book Review
People have long been fascinated by stories of angel sightings, yet many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth rather than solide, biblical truth.
As he's done so brilliantly for decades, respected Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah uses Scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven and their role in our world and our lives.
What are angels? What is their role in God's plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight about our work and our worship?
In this broad and thorough survey of Scripture, Dr. Jeremiah clearly and simply separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. His enlightening findings are supported with illustrations and insights from prominent teachers, such as Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C. S. Lewis, and more.
Dr. Jeremiah's down-to-earth style guides readers around the hype about angels and directly into the "substance of things unseen!"

About The Author:
Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah is the senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego, and founder of Turning Point Radio and TV Ministries. His radio program is carried on more than 2,500 stations worldwide, while the TV broadcast is received by 500 million homes via cable and satellite. The recipient of numerous prestigious awards for broadcast excellence, Dr. Jeremiah's many books have garnered Gold Medallion awards and achieved bestseller status with The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and The New York Times.
Dr. David Jeremiah takes on a very popular topic within the New Age Spirituality movement, and when I first had the opportunity to review Angels, I have to admit I was very nervous. I was not really all that sure what else could be said about the subject of angels that has not been said before.
I was very pleasantly surprised. Jeremiah tackles the subject with a great depth and allows the reader to really dig deep as he explains just what angels are and what they are not. The one thing that struck me the most is his warning to believers to not make it practice to worship angels. Our worship is for God and God alone.
He uses scripture extensively to back up all his points, for which I am very happy to see. If you have ever had questions regarding the validity of angels, you must read this book. It will definitely help build your understanding of how the Bible describes angels and their role in our Christian life. This book is a quick and very easy read, and will definitely be a book I will hang on to for reference purposes for years to come.
