I was somewhat hesitant to read a book on angels. If you, like me, are not fond of the plump, fairy-like cherubs so often seen in today’s culture, Angels of God, The Bible, the Church, and the Heavenly Hosts will not disappoint you. Mike Aquilina presents the angels, majestic and powerful, in all their fiery eye, sword yielding glory.
“When we read the Bible with our eyes open for angels, we notice that they are not ornaments on the picture frame or convenient plot devices. They’re in the foreground and the background. They play starring roles, center stage.”
“Angels are everywhere.” Aquilina backs up this statement using scripture, church teaching, and the writings of saints. These heavenly beings “play crucial roles in the drama of our creation, fall and salvation.” And they still do, even in the drama of our very own daily lives.
Angels of God covers where angles are, what they are, different kinds of angels, particular angels, and how we can benefit from their heavenly company.
Aquilina states, “We walk in the company of angels. We hope to live in their company forever.” Just knowing they are there should make us think about the things we do or say. They are there to help, guide, and protect us. All we need to do is ask for their assistance.
This book offers amazing insight into the presence of the angels and contains everything you need to help you feel closer to these heavenly hosts. There is even a section of prayers, poems, and songs. We should remember to call on the angels, keep them in our minds and in our hearts. Angels of God, The Bible, the Church, and the Heavenly Hosts will help you do just that.
