it was really interesting and not at all what I expected.

it doesn't talk about Christian angels alone, but Jewish and Islamic ones as well. demons too. it was pretty neat.

If you are looking for reference material on angels of all religious traditions, including Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, New Age, et - this is a great book to start with. The information is vast, and is very objective. I like that, rather than offering an opinion on the validity of different stories, she just lays out all of the legends and myths for the reader.

Rosemary's dedication to exhaustive research is evident in her fabulous book of reference. If readers want to know anything about angels--myths, origins of lore and facts--they need look no further. Guiley's book is jam-packed with information that provides many key points and leads for further investigation. Her book was extremely helpful in my research. If you want to explore the realm of the mystical and paranormal, this is a great place to begin.
