Angels Are For Real

Angels Are for Real: Inspiring, True Stories and Biblical Answers

I have always believed in Angels, and have always been intrigued by them… probably mostly due to the fact that my parents named me Angel.  I have always read very carefully the scriptures in the bible that referenced them, and always listened extra close to stories of Angels being told.

I was really excited to have a chance to review this book and am so glad that I was able to read it.
I enjoyed the stories from various people shared in this book, most of them unknown. I also loved the fact that the author chose to include biblical statements supporting the fact that Angels are among us, even today. They are here to help, support and protect us.

I did find myself skimming through the book on different occasions. The flow wasn’t always smooth and the transition between the real life stories and the meat of the chapters often cut each other off.

I did learn much reading this book. I loved learning about how Angels can take the form of humans we know, to keep us from being afraid of them. I’m guessing it depends on the individual person on whether or not the angel keeps their form or changes it.

There were a few statements that I found questionable, other than that… this was a very lovely book and I will definitely be passing it on to others.

I received this book free from the book review program at Bethany House Publishing in exchange for writing a review. I was not required to write a favorable review.
