Angels: The Strange and Mysterious Truth

by David Jeremiah

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


With his usual combination of panache and erudition. Dr. Jeremiah presents an enlightening, provocative, Scripture-based study about angels. Catching our interest with contemporary angel encounters, warnings about the dark side of this subject, and an overview of “the real thing,” Jeremiah ushers us into a study of the actualities of angelology. Angels: The Strange and Mysterious Truth leads into the body of its subject with three warnings: don’t reshape angels to your fancy; don’t replace God with angels; and, never worship angels. Built firmly on the Bible, subjects include: angels and God and His plan for them; angels and us - similarities and differences; specific angel groups and individuals, with an entire chapter given to ‘the angel of the Lord’; worship and work; Hell’s angels; and angels and Jesus.

Angels is definitely not a book to read once and forget. With a wide scope of important information, strong appeals to worship, and urgency towards your relationship with God, this book provides much data for teachers, parents, witnesses, and religious workers. Even more, it provides a renewable safety belt against the constant onslaught of contemporary, other-than-Christian angel and demon experiences. A proven Christian, long-time pastor, teacher, author, and ministry director, Dr. Jeremiah imbues this volume with a congenial style that encourages you to continue reading. A carefully annotated, dedicatedly biblical study, Angels will be valued by youth through adult readers, answering questions for sincere students, whether Christian or non-Christian. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

For centuries, men, women, and children have been fascinated by stories of angel sightings. Yet many contemporary beliefs are based on misconception and myth rather than solid, biblical truth. Responding to our widespread, modern cultural interest in the agents of heaven and their role in our world, popular Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah provides an in-depth, biblical look at the hot topic of angels. His broad and thorough survey of scriptural teaching is illustrated by powerful quotes from prominent teachers Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis, and others.
