Overview

God knows your needs--and He has His angels ready to help you!

Have you ever had a close call? Do you sometimes sense that you are not alone? Do you wonder if you have ever met an angel "unaware"?

When Betty Malz was a young mom, she suffered a ruptured appendix and, after many fatal complications, was declared dead. Twenty-eight minutes later, she returned to life--bringing with her a vibrant and encouraging message about these heavenly helpers called angels.

Over the years that followed, Betty spoke and wrote about her amazing experience--including the armies of angels she saw awaiting God's commands to help His people. And it seemed that everywhere she turned, she met others eager to tell her about their encounters with angelic beings.

This book is the culmination of that journey. Here you will discover biblical answers to questions such as:
• When do angels help us?
• What do protecting, rescuing and messenger angels actually do?
• How do we know if an angel is God's servant or one of Satan's hosts trying to deceive us?
• Can angels intervene when we face temptation?
• How do we pray for divine assistance?

This book will help you understand God's purpose for these heavenly helpers in every area of your life. Be encouraged to trust in His loving care--for He truly has angels by your side.

In Angels By My Side, Betty Malz provides a detailed glimpse of the angelic help that God can provide for us. Malz uses her own personal experiences, anecdotes from others who believe they have received divine assistance, and Biblical scripture to support her claims. According to Malz, angels are sent to us upon God’s command when we pray for help. Persistence in prayer is a key to getting assistance.  The author notes that it is important when we pray for a specific request, our hearts are in the right place. Malz provides numerous examples of people who have the “right motives” for their prayer requests, but I wish she spent more time distinguishing “right” and “wrong” motives for clarification.  The author claims angelic intervention can occur in three major ways: when we are in a helpless situation and need strength, in the midst of danger, and when we are faced with temptations. God can send his angels to fight or minister to us when we ask for help. Angels can come in human and supernatural form. During an intervention, Malz’s research uncovered three types of angelic visits. We may sense the presence of angels at the time, we may only realize an angel has intervened after the situation, and sometimes, we are never even aware that an angel has been there with us.  This is a fast read with amazing stories that made me reflect upon my life to think about experiences I’ve had where I believe there were angels involved to help me in my times of crisis. The stories I read will stay with me for a long time! I received an ARC of this book from the publisher for an honest review.

In her inspiraing book, Angels by my Side, Betty Malz shares her own experience of dying and being guided to Heaven by angel, seeing and communicating, then returning to her body 28 minutes after death.  She includes accounts of others with a wide assortment of angel encounters and they are fascinating to read.  Using Scripture, Malz explains how angels intercede, obeying commands from God.  She believes that angel interventions may be prayed for, but these requests must be made directly to God rather than to angels.  God alone can order angels to carry out His orders.   Angels fill many roles, including rescuer, messenger, protector, and intercessory.   Numerous examples are provided in each category.  Angels can step in to a situation to prevent temptation, block access to a wrong turn, guide and redirect us, or defuse a perilous situation.  Malz warns readers about evil (fallen) angels and people who offer solace in false, yet appealing ways.  Spiritual mediums and occultists can convince desperate people to believe in their deceptive practices, but true angels sent by God can and do rescue people from these situations. Malz has written a very sincere accounting of angel deeds and miracles.  Her ideas of the workings and methods of angel intervention seems quite valid.  Although the book is short; only 121 pages, readers are well advised to take the time to reflect on each concept and chapter.  Should readers believe all or part?  As a very wise priest said “There are thousands of reasons not to believe, but only One reason to believe.”  Each reader will choose.  All readers will find inspiration. I received a copy of this book from Baker Publishing’s Chosen Books to read and review.  I am pleased to recommend it to adult and teenage readers who seek information about God's work in our lives through His angels.
