Author: Dr. David Jeremiah
Genre: Inspirational/nonfiction/Christian living
Angels are a subject that has long fascinated people, especially when people tell of sightings of real angels. Yet Dr. Jeremiah maintains that many of contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconceptions and myths, rather than solid, biblical truths.
In ANGELS, Dr. Jeremiah addresses several questions, such as:
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?
Plus much more
ANGELS goes through a thorough survey of Scripture, where Dr. Jeremiah clearly separates fact from fiction. In addition to plenty of Scripture references, Dr. Jeremiah also quotes Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C. S. Lewis, and others.
Dr. Jeremiah is a respected Bible teacher that I remember my parents listening to, so when offered a chance to review a book by his, I jumped at the chance. I am one of many who believe I have had visits from angels on a few occasions when unexplained events happened, and thus Dr. Jeremiah’s subject matter was of interest to me.
ANGELS is an extremely well written book, and even the parts where very familiar Bible stories are shared are written with a freshness that draws the reader in, and keeps them engaged as Dr. Jeremiah moves on to share his thoughts about the topic. I thoroughly enjoyed ANGELS, and this book will be placed on in our home library for future reference. I love the last line of the book. $14.99. 222 pages.
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.
