Overview

A stunning oversized collection of our most sacred guardians, The Glory of Angels, begins by organizing angels by their closeness to God. Illustrations, short stories, and quotes highlight the importance of guardian angels and archangels including Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Special features explore such topics as the use of music as the voice of angels, angels in mythology, and angels and the last judgement. They explore how angels guide us by protecting and warning us of danger, healing and comforting us, and urging us to follow God′s path.

In-depth essays reveal the stories of fallen angels, angels in disguise, and angels who have given in to temptation. There are also inspiring accounts of those who have been visited by angels--Joan of Arc, King Lear, Willaim Blake, Lot, Daniel, Jacob--and how each eventually overcame his hardship with the help of an angel.

A full reference section is included in the back of the book, along with a visual glossary of images and illustrations describing each piece of art in detail and noting the name, date, location and artist.

    more from this reviewer

    A treasure of information ~ a believer's guide to the history of art and the notion of angelic participation in the human experience, including the influence their legends have lent to the socialization of christian children, and to world history.

    A treasure on my own coffee table. A beloved gift to my mother, and to the mother of a fallen, contemporary soldier. A selection to share with your christian friends, one they will cherish forever.

    I Also Recommend:

    Over all, this is a lovely book. The way it opens to begin reading, the unusual pictures,looks nice on the coffee table, good witness of how you feel about the presence of angels in our life

    This book was a gift from my husband so I had talked about the beauty of the layout, how you open the book, rich colors and a reminder that angels are in our life and we each have a guardian angel. They all look different just as we are all different.

    I love to go back and review the lovely pages and be reminded of Jesus and what he did for us.

    THE GLORY OF ANGELS

    This beautiful book was given to my sister-in-law and her husband for Christmas. They raved about the pictures of the glorious angels painted by the great European artists over the centuries.

    They were truly appreciative of the gift and they also said the book is a work of art.
