"A captivating work that will well reward the reader...A well-researched and clearly written guide through one of the most fascinating aspects of Judaism: the multi-facted world of angels from the sacred time of the Bible to the secular time of Isaac Bashevis Singer." CHAIM POTOK Rabbi and scholar Morris B. Margolies pores through nearly three thousand years of literature and lore in this enlightening exploration of the angels, who shape and reflect Jewish beliefs, hopes, and fears. An engaging compendium of angelic lore, A GATHERING OF ANGELS is also a memorable study of the evolving role of angels--from Biblical times to the present, from messenger of God to metaphor for good and evil.
