Overview


They appear in the world's major religions, as well as in literary classics, and it's widely believed that many of these supernatural creatures truly exist. But who or what are angels? Are they messengers from heaven, or are they fearsome and ferocious beings from the underworld? Author Robert Curran concludes that there are angels who fit both categories. Readers will meet guardian angels and archangels, as well as the cherubim and seraphim, who sit at the foot of God's heavenly throne. They'll also read the legendary story of Lucifer, the fallen angel whose attempt to seize God's throne set off a war in heaven that ended when he and his cohorts were cast into Hell. Among other fallen angels is their king, Asmodeus, as well as Beelzebub, the celebrated "Lord of the Flies." But Robert Curran also describes many of the heavenly angels, such as Michael, God's warrior; Raphael, the great healer; and Uriel, the carrier of wisdom. The Handbook of Angels and Fallen Angels is an always fascinating and highly readable description of the entire angelic realm. It's filled with facts, folklore, and fascinating stories, and is enhanced with impressive color illustrations.

    Review: For a book which is comprised of only eighty pages, there is a good amount of knowledge to be read about both the angels and the their fallen brethren. As a believer in angels as well as an avid lover, I was very impressed by the compact size handbook. The illustrations were beautifully done. They are very intricate and vivid. I also really enjoyed the texture of the pages. Glossy and strong. I learned more about angels than I had known before. I have done a great deal of research on angels and the fallen so I was pleasantly surprised to learn some bits of information I hadn't learned yet. Foe example, how the Jewish mystical tradition doesn't refer to different levels of angels as "beings" but instead as sephirot which means "enumerations." I also did not know about the Book of Tobit. For believers and lovers of all things angel related, The Handbook of Angels and the Fallen Angels is a nifty little book to add to the shelf.
