The title of this book says exactly what it is about, and the content reveals what the Bible says about them. There is no doubt the author has thoroughly researched the Bible and many reputable sources to arrive at his conclusions about the nature and purpose of angels.
The book begins with an overview of the Biblical references that mention angels. Dr. Jeremiah then proceeds to interpret the possible implications for us today. I liked the way he explains the basics about angels: their existence as created spiritual beings; their purpose as servants acting according to their master’s will and with his authority; their appearance in times of need; their job as messengers and also as warriors.
Dr. Jeremiah shows that the typical image we have of angels is not based on the Bible’s teachings. Through time, people have formed an image fitting their vision of what an angel should be rather than of what God created them to be.
Dr. Jeremiah has an engaging writing style that keeps the facts from sounding like a textbook. He explains his views and supports them with quotes from other sources. Though there is no way to prove his conclusions, his beliefs are well thought out and explained. This is a thought-provoking book, and I highly recommend it.
