Reassurance of Angelic Protection

Although Billy Graham begins ANGELS with a few intriguing anecdotes, he quickly and clearly indicates that these stories are not the basis for his belief that angels exist. He goes into a detailed explanation of all known aspects of the existence and activities of angels. Even though he speaks in a chatty tone, he has taken a scholarly approach to the subject with the appropriate scripture references to support his teachings. The book contains sound theological ideas supported by reasoning and the Bible. It's wonderful to know that the angels are receiving their directions from the Lord Almighty. It is reassuring to know that we have angels watching over us. I am glad Billy Graham wrote and published this helpful book.

God inspired book

This is one of the first books by Billy Graham that I read and is just A sample of what A God inspired Man He is. I recommend this book for everyone. I have given my last two books I ordered as Christmas Gifts.

Angels 101

This book is basically a layman's guide to angels. Graham uses the Bible as his only source of information on the subject, and he does a very good job of describing the heavenly hosts to readers. The book was written largely in response to the proliferation of books centering around demonology and New Age ideas in recent years; as he points out, there really aren't many satisfying treatments available of angels per se. Sadly, modern man's conception of angels has been shaped and largely determined by popular entertainment; Graham effectively delineates truth from lies and imaginative thinking. The book is meant to inspire and comfort as much as it is to inform the reader. Graham offers many penetrating insights into the subject, but, most importantly, he lays out the basic facts about angels as they are revealed in the Bible. He describes a hierarchy of angels that is more extensive that I realized--at the top is the archangel Michael, followed by Gabriel, then cherubim and seraphim, and finally a myriad of different principalities, authorities, etc. Angels, Graham argues, perform different functions but serve only to glorify God and assist man in attaining salvation.While the concept of a hierarchy among angels seems somewhat strange, given that it necessarily implies varying levels of power and authority and, thus, inequality among these divine beings, Graham does an excellent job of explaining what angels do and, more interestingly, what they cannot do. Angels, first and foremost, praise the Lord and work for Him in all things; they serve as His divine warriors and as the protective agents of every Christian in the world. Interestingly, angels cannot preach to man or take any other action to compel man to repent of his sins because each man must make his own decision for or against Christ. One of the explanations Graham suggests for angels' inability to actively win human souls is the fact that angels do not know sin and cannot relate to the miraculous conversion from sin to faith in Christ. What I find most interesting about angels, and this is a notion borne out by Graham's writing, is the fact that they will be subordinate to saved human souls in heaven. Though born wretched, those men and women who accept God's salvation will live eternally in a closer relationship with God than the sinless angels do. Many readers will find the information on Lucifer and his fall from heaven the most interesting section of the book. I certainly cannot understand how any angel, created without sin, can somehow fall victim to pride (which Graham implies is the seedbed of all sin), especially to the point where he will challenge God for His throne and, even more amazingly, convince up to one third of all angels to join with him in the revolt. Graham does a good a job as anyone at explaining the origins of Satan (as well as the inevitable defeat of the prince of lies). The true purpose of the book is to win new souls for the Lord and to offer co

GOD IN SCHOOL!

This is the most amazing book i have ever read. I am a 10th grader at P. V. Moore high school. Last year my english teacher gave me this book for a gift during regents week. I read it over and over and this year for english my new teacher said that we were going to have a book talk on any book of our choice. Of course I picked this book. Along with our book talk we had to create an addvertising poster to place anywhere in the school halls. Because of this book many seeds have been planted and I know that revival will be here soon! Please pray for me and my school. Thank you. galaxygirl25@JUNO.COM

Excellent Book

Billy Graham really brings home the reality of angels in this book and how they are not some imaginary beings, but mighty warriors used by God for His purposes.
