Book Review and Giveaway: Angels

Book: Angels
Author: Dr. David Jeremiah
What are angels? What is their role in God’s plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight about our work, our worship?

Many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. Dr. David Jeremiah uses scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven, and their role and work in our world—and lives.

More than 60,000 units of this powerful book have sold in two past editions. This repackage of the original 1996 paperback will surely capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. The book will appeal to the thousands who follow Dr. Jeremiah’s books, and radio and TV broadcasts.

Relevant, little known biblical facts help readers sharpen their knowledge and sensitivities toward the spiritual reality of angels. Dr. Jeremiah’s enlightening findings are supported with illustrations and insights from Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis, and more.

Author Bio:
Dr. David Jeremiah is senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in San Diego , and founder of Turning Point Radio and TV Ministries. His radio program is carried on over 2,500 stations worldwide, while the TV broadcast is received by 500 million homes via cable and satellite. The recipient of numerous awards for broadcast excellence, his books have garnered Gold Medallion awards and become bestsellers with The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and the New York Times. He is a sought-after conference speaker by organizations nationwide.

My Review:
Different people seem to have different opinions about angels. What word(s) comes to your mind when you think of angels? Mysterious? Fascinating? Wings? It's A Wonderful Life :)? Dr. David Jeremiah thoroughly explores the truth about angels from God's Word, thus exposing any misconceptions.  In this book, you will get the inside scoop on who angels really are, what their roles are, and how they help us (eg. showing us how to worship and how to work).  I am pleased to see Dr. Jeremiah repeatedly remind readers to revere God the Creator above all else, including angels who are created beings.  Our worship and devotion should be towards God alone...no one else, not even angels.  What you learn from this book will draw you closer to God and help you appreciate His awesome wonder and His love even more. The Scripture index and the subject index at the end of the book are really useful. If you're curious and/or confused about angels, this book is for you.

I read the posty 'Everylasting Love'. Thanks for the chance to win Dr. David Jeremiah's book! When I was first saved, he was one of the people that I'd listen to so often on the radio. purposedrivenlife4you at gmail dot com

Hi - I read the post "Who owes who?" Thanks for the opportunity to win the book.

I read My One and Only Valentine...my version is that I met mine the day after my birthday in 1981, and 9 months to the day (purely coincidentally...really!) later we were married. It's been quite a journey the last 26 1/2 years!!

Hi -- new here. I read Everlasting Love - it is a good reminder and the words are comforting.

I would love to win this book for my mom who is such a wonderful lady, but has yet to come to salvation and has all these cutesy ideas about Angels. I think it is great that he has written an informative book about this subject.

What a fun contest! I enjoyed your blog and checking out your posts. I especially enjoyed your review of Dug Down Deep. I had read some of Harris's earlier books, but nothing recent - now I really want to pick this one up, too.

Thank you so much for your review of Angels: by Dr. David Jeremiah. I've always realized my knowledge of angels is minute, tiny. I would love to read this book to shore up my lack of knowledge and my errors about angels.
