People have long been fascinated by stories of angel sightings, yet many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth rather than solide, biblical truth.

As he's done so brilliantly for decades, respected Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah uses Scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents o

An amazing book about God, Christ, angels and us without be stuffy or overly theological.

Loved it and plan to enjoy it again at my convenience. Dr. Jeremiah is amazing!

Over the years much has been written about angels. Unfortunately so much of it is rather far-fetched and just not reliable. I found this book to be very informative, but most importantly Scripture is the foundation used throughout. An interesting aspect explained is that we should not assume angels would serve or help non-Christians. The Bible describes angels as “ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation.”

Dr. Jeremiah certainly provides interesting insights on angels, a

Informative and Biblical

It is nice to read a book about angels that is Biblically based and is not based on speculation. David Jeremiah keeps your interest and also makes you desire to serve the Lord more effectively.

While this book is similar in a lot of ways to a book by Billy Graham, this one might be a little better for those wanting to know more about what the Bible says about angels only because it dived a bit farther (not deeper, just explored the topic differently). Either one would be an excellent choice, though.

This book was very helpful in understanding angels and their place in the heavens, on earth, and in our lives. This book takes a scriptural approach to all things angels, including demons (Satan's angels).

What was interesting in this book, other than the topic itself, were the little tidbits that made you stop reading and think about what he was saying. For instance, have you ever thought about the fact that the angel Gabriel looked the same to every person in the Bible who saw him? Angels do no

Through out the pages of this book Dr. David Jeremiah leads readers on an in depth conversation about what the Bible provides on the topic of angels. There is a what, when, why and often how about angels and included is a scriptural index that makes your own referencing much less complicated.

I have always had a personal belief in angels, but not put much thought to it. There are some people who have become fascinated with the angelic beings and it is interested how Dr. Jeremiah puts this into p

A nicely laid-out book, structured in a logical order, but the good information on angels is buried under a lot of proselytizing. One must be patient and dig down to keep track of the information on angels per se, of what the Bible and popular belief say about angels. I was hoping for more anecdotes or personal experiences to illustrate his points. For example, he talks about how he didn't at first believe that angels carry the dead, but over time, he came to realise that it was so. At that poin ...more

PRAISE GOD!!!

This book is going to be the most special book of my life.
You see, my beloved grandmother has cancer.

(Unfortunately I found out in the middle of this book, it has spread after a long battle.)

In a talk we had over the phone yesterday; she brought up David Jeremiah. Ironically, I had been reading this very book. I told her, “I am reading a book on angels by Pastor Jeremiah!” She told me, “That’s great. Keep going!”

I did not know how her illness would spread before starting this bo

I read this book as part of a women’s study group. While we will never know everything about Angels, this book shows us several key things the Bible reveals about who they are and their purpose of being there for us when we face critical issues. We can all strive to be angel-like in this world! We’re required to consider & understand good & evil, angels steer us but we make the decisions on whether we will follow. Dr. David Jeremiah helps in showing us what the Bible reveals, to better recognize ...more

A good book about what Angel's are and what they do on earth.
I wanted read this book to get a better w understanding of Angel's and how they functioned here on earth in relation to man. I wanted to read this particular book because I knew De. Jeremiah was a knowledgeable man and an excellent writer and teacher. I learned quite a bit about Angel's and would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn something about Angel's from an excellent teacher and author.

A good book by a good man on a good subject. My biggest complaint is he waffled on the whole "sons of God" issue from Genesis 6 [they were NOT angelic- fallen or otherwise] and that being a minor issue makes my biggest complaint rather small. It's a worthwhile book to read and study if you want to know the truth about angels.

This book explored what the Bible says about angels. It was written in an easy-to-follow, somewhat casual writing style. However, the font was small and light, making the book difficult to read.

When Dr. Jeremiah concentrated on what Scripture had to say about angels, the book was excellent...though he did identify a few beings in the Bible as angels that I'm not convinced are angels (like he assumed that "the elders" in Revelations were angels, which not everyone agrees with).

Apparently that was

“Another enjoyable, factual, relevant book from David Jeremiah.”

Drawing from some of the greatest ‘Heroes of Faith’, Dr. Jeremiah presents ‘Angels: Who They Are and How They Help–What the Bible Reveals’.

Many believers mistakenly focus on portions of the Christian walk leaving others for their passionate interests in such things as angels.

In this book, Pastor Jeremiah directs the focus to the origin, purpose, and persona of angels using biblical references and previous works of such heroes of the

I think what I've liked most is the way Dr. David Jeremiah presents this material. I've just finished the section on being guided through biblical history with a view on the angels. The guide shares that we should watch the angels hands and then shows how their hands focus on touching us. Along the way, the guide takes us back and goes through history again with our eyes only on the messages, and again, only on their warrior position in heaven. I loved how he broke out those elements and helped ...more

People all over seem to be fascinate by angels and long to know more about them. Some claim they have seen angels and yet others deny their existence. In this new book, Angels by Dr. David Jeremiah, he teaches us about angels according to the Bible. In fourteen chapters - 222 pages - Dr. Jeremiah covers what angels are, when they appear, the part of angels in death, and much more. Included in the back of the book is scriptural index for easy reference.

Angels have become a part of pop culture today with many misconceptions of what they are and their purpose in our lives. People have imagined fanciful ideas of what they want angels to be. Dr. David Jeremiah has taken a who, what, where, when, why and , how approach from scripture to explain what our proper relationship to angels should be.

Taking examples of angels from scripture the author reminds us of some very interesting facts. For example, angels are always one-way messengers. They are Go

Angels by Dr. David Jeremiah is an indepth study on the truth behind these mysterious messengers of God. The worship of angels has been going on for millenia, Paul wrote about the dangers of it in his epistles. Now there are books and groups teaching about angels who help their people find good parking spots or great deals at the mall. That is nothing like the angels portrayed in the Bible, and the author does his best to put aside the myths and focus on what we know from Scripture. There is muc

Dr. David Jeremiah brings to light the biblical accounts of angels and that they worship God. If we focus on angels we are taking away from God which is wrong. He distinguishes between biblical angels and "angelism", as well as also states that all angels are not from God, after all lucifer was an angel at one point as well. Dr. Jeremiah provides reliable resources, such as accounts from Billy Graham or Corrie Tenboom.

I was impressed with this book and appreciated his down to earth take of these

This book will give you a literal view of angels—they’re nothing like what we imagine them, and they’re nothing like what contemporary fiction makes them out to be, either (angels serving God or fallen angels both). They are warriors—glorious, perfect, merciless warriors.

The best thing about this book is that Dr. Jeremiah is very centered with what the Bible says. The Bible is our ultimate source of truth, and if we have a “religious experience” that contradicts the Bible, if we begin to worshi

I enjoyed reading Angels by Dr. David Jeremiah and recommend the book to anyone interested in exploring the world of the angels. After reading the book, I found many opportunities to start conversations about angels, discuss our perceptions and quote scripture verse about these messengers. I enjoyed going through the book and following where Angels appear in the Bible. Scripture by scripture, David Jeremiah showed me what angels - and what angels are not.

I'm very glad I won this book in the Goodreads Giveaway drawing. I've never actually given much thought to angels on a conscious level, but I have certainly taken them for granted at a subconscious level so when I saw this book, I decided I wanted to learn more. David Jeremiah does an indepth study for us of what Angels are and what they are not using hundreds of bible references to back up his answers. I was really impressed with the amount of detailed thought that went into this book and found ...more
