This scriptural study does two things: it unveils the biblical view of angels and it gives fresh insights into the meaning of Scripture itself. Angels appear at key moments in the biblical narrative, to understand them more deeply is to understand that narrative more deeply.
This is a profound and unsentimental book. It contains nothing saccharine or false, but offers an important contribution to our understanding of the angels, the Bible and Christian tradition. In these pages the dusty images of yesteryear give way to a new and highly engaging vision.
