Wanted to fully like this book, but ended up having to force myself to finish it. First of all, it is quite repetitive. It could have been a lot shorter with no loss of content. Second, it is written with a classical Dispensationalist framework assumed, so there's that. Third, many of the scripture references given as proof texts do not speak to the point being made. And finally, many of the points made (especially regarding demons) are only supported anecdotally, rather than by Scripture or eve ...more

A thorough examination of what the Bible has to say about angels and demons and their interactions with people in the Bible and a little about interactions with people today. Dickason's presentation is readable but not riveting. In places it is a bit dry, and may be better used as a reference than a book to be read from cover to cover. Also, it assumes dispensationalism and cessationism without explanation. Apart from these shortcomings I found it quite helpful. ...more

Angels — Do You Really Know Who They Are?

This is an excellent resource on Angels—Elect, Fallen, Satan and Demons from their creation to their final eternal state.

Dickason provides a comprehensive and biblical explanation of angels. Since the majority of Christians have a “Hollywood understanding” of angels, I can not recommend this book enough.

Very informative. Some of the information I didn't agree with 100%, but the author concedes there are varying opinions. Overall, though, well-researched and well put-together. ...more

Very repetative book which makes sense since angels is not the primary focus of the bible, so he finds himself repeating himself over and over again. I wish he would have engaged psychology more when discussing demon possession. I was hoping for more coecive integration between the spiritual and the psychological.

It gets a little too deep for me during the last quarter of the book. Interesting and informative.
