Do you believe in Angels?

I just finished a book by Dr. David Jeremiah titled Angels. And I am excited to be able to give one of you a copy of the book. (Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner on Monday, February 8th). Thanks Waterbrook Multnomah!

I was excited about this book when I was first contacted by Waterbrook Multnomah to do a review. I have never read a book about Angels and I have always wanted to read a book by Dr. David Jeremiah.

I had never stopped to think about all of the occasions that Angels are in different stories in the Bible. I don't take a lot of time to think about Angels playing a role in my spiritual life, but I do believe that they are active today. This book helped me to really think about the Angels in the way that God would like us to think about Angels.

I really enjoyed how the book really took me deep into scripture on a tour through the Bible. Dr. Jeremiah does an excellent job of defining angels roles in God's plan. They were created to glorify God, just like we were. He cautions placing angels above God and relying on angels instead of God.

In the beginning of the book I wondered if it would be hard to read because of its deep theological look into this topic. However, it is at a level that was not hard to understand and it was enjoyable to read.

You can find out more about purchasing the book here.

Here is a summary of the book from Waterbrook Multnomah:
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, our worship?

Many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. Dr. David Jeremiah uses scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven, and their role and work in our world—and lives.

More than 60,000 units of this powerful book have sold in two past editions. This repackage of the original 1996 paperback will surely capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. The book will appeal to the thousands who follow Dr. Jeremiah’s books, and radio and TV broadcasts.

Relevant, little known biblical facts help readers sharpen their knowledge and sensitivities toward the spiritual reality of angels. Dr. Jeremiah’s enlightening findings are supported with illustrations and insights from Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis, and more.
