Angels, Satan, Demons is an older book, but it is pretty good. Lightner takes a thorough look at what the Bible teaches about Angels, Satan, and Demons. He has a great chapter explaining the identity of the Angel of the Lord too.

The book was written as a response to the rise of "angelmania" in the New Age movement. Many Christians were not discerning the differences in ideas about angels.

Lightner speaks where Scripture speaks about supernatural beings. Very good treatment. Not overly academic. E

A great book about the Biblical explanations of the supernatural. This book is guaranteed to upset every charismatic faith-healer and demon exorciser on the planet. Which is strange since all it does is show the Bible verses that deal with Angels and Demons.

Author obviously doesn't believe in the power of the Holy Spirit for the current age, but indicates that was only during the New Testament times. I totally disagree and therefore, lost my interest and respect for this book. He does, however, have some good biblical facts about angels, demons, and the fall of satan.

I wasn't sure if I would give this book 5 or 4 stars, but it was so well researched and written. I loved how the author only drew conclusions from what is in the Bible, and separated out the myths that are not. An excellent book.
