The Book of Angels

Front Cover
Barron's, 2001 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 128 pages
They're the stuff of legend -- but also the focus of serious theological study! From the beginning of recorded history, people of all cultures have turned to angels for guidance, comfort, and inspiration. The attributes and qualities of approximately 50 angels are described, including archangels cited in the Jewish and Christian Bibles, as well as the planetary and zodiac angels. They include Michael, conqueror of Satan as described in Genesis, Gabriel, the angel in the New Testament who heralded the birth of Jesus, Armisael, an angel of birth and death, Zadkiel, a planetary angel and patron of lawyers, and many others. This absorbing volume offers an extra bonus in the form of six sealed pages containing rituals that readers can perform. The book features more than 150 beautiful, full-color illustrations.
