An Angel’s View is a fascinating study of the Biblical accounts of angels. Not only does this book compare and contrast popular beliefs to biblical truth, it weaves the lessons from these Biblical stories with modern and relatable stories from the author’s research and experiences (including the U.S. Space Program). The author then shows how each biblical appearance of angels teaches us about the holiness, love, justice and sovereignty of God. What a good read!
This is so much more than a book about angels. Even the most biblical of scholars will gain a new insight. It carries you with a rapid flow throughout the book.

This has changed my perspective on my personal prayer life and the awesome power of being in the presence of God.
An Angel's View was an excellent fast read. Bible inspired yet a whole new exciting image for God's purpose of angels. The author has even woven his personal experiences with the Space Shuttle program to further expand his points. Even readers who don't necessarily read Christian literature will enjoy this book.
