This book is more than it appears. Often times when you see a book on angels it really focuses on angels, perhaps too much. But Jack is up front that this book is different. It really is focused on Jesus and the Father and how they use angels. I absolutely loved this book. It flowed with truth and gave me a better understanding of how God uses angels to minister to us. Every time I picked this book up I walked away with a sense of God’s great love for us. Jack also used a lot of personal stories and other people’s stories through out and I always engage with that. Overall, a great book that I highly recommend. A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I have never read a book on Angels quite like this. Very different, not your typical book on "angels". At first I thought it wouldn't mention anything on angels, but how Jack Graham does it, is weaves Biblical stories of people in the Bible who encountered angel activity and explains the whys, and hows, and has discipleship lessons of how to live in obedience to God and experience this activity for yourself, lots of practical applications. An encouraging, awesome read. It tells of the different situations characters in the Bible were in and shows how God responds with His Angelic help. It interweaves in the Character of God, and how He loves us and works in peoples lives. This book is based on the Word of God and includes plenty of Scripture references to back up his teaching. It also includes beautiful stories of modern day people who have had supernatural encounters with angels.. I received this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

ANGELS Who They Are, What They Do, and Why It Matters By Dr Jack Graham Got questions about angels, are they just myths, or are they created by God. Dr Graham’s book will help answers these questions. Dr Jack Graham covers the subject of angels from all points and shares some very informative facts about who angels are and what they do. He shares different stories about how angels have helped protect people and ministered to others. He give scripture to back up his facts as to where they come from and who they are and he divide the facts into four parts. 1. Wisdom of Angels 2. Protection of Angels 3. Encouragement of Angels 4. Presence of Angels Then by dividing each of those parts into smaller and easy to understand information, you will see a strong case for the reality of angels and what they do and why they do it. There is a good chance after you read this book, that you will remember a time or two when an angel helped you. I think Jack Graham gets his point across and proves that angels do exist and provided to us by God as a guardian to guide us each day. This information will be helpful in Bible Studies and discussions, easy to read and inspiring. I received this book free from Bethany House Blogger Review Program.

Angels have always fascinated me, as a child they were something that comforted me. My adopted mom took me to church nearly every Sunday, I would listen to the message the pastor delivered, go to Sunday School every time. I would here about angels in various parts of the bible, and would always want to know more about them. I was hungry for more knowledge but, no one could explain them to me. Psalm 91:11 ESV, For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. The book is set up into four distinct parts. Part one is about the wisdom of angels. Part two talks about the protection of angels. Part Three is the encoragement of angels. Part four is the presence of angels. I really enjoyed the breakdown of the book because it packs lots of information in. Ultimately, Jack Graham takes on a topic that at its core is very controversial, then backs it with scripture. He provides evidence to back up the facts, opinions, and ideas that he expresses in this book. This book isn't just an opinion piece, there is weight behind it. This book is perfect for anyone that is looking to learn more about angels. Anyone who is looking for resources, including pastors or teachers. I hope you will check it out.

This book starts with Roma Downey ( actress of Touched by an Angel tv show and also producer and actress of The Bible mini-series). Jack Graham does a wonderful job with this book and helps the reader understand why Angels are here. God created angels to watch over us, protect us, and teach us how great God is. There is many wonderful bible verses in this book and wanted me to dig into my bible deeper. I also loved how he did little things like…HOLY – H-Harness Your Thought Life, O- Obey Christ, L- Love God With All Your Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength, Y-Yield Your Life Completely To Him. I learned so much from this book. I am looking forward to the DVD when it comes out in the future. *I received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
