Angels: Divine Messengers and Personal Guardians (2008) by Lee Faber is a concise book about various aspects connected with angels.
First and foremost, I don’t believe in angels so my reading of this book is probably going to be different and not in a personal connection way like a person who does believe. But I think it is good to open your mind, maybe not believe in angels if you don’t, but to read what it means to those who do and give you more of an understanding of peoples’ reasons for believing something. I think by opening your mind to other peoples’ perspectives it heightens your understanding of other people in the world with you and how they feel and I don’t think that is ever a bad thing.
This is a very concise book and rather interesting too. While there is much in it for believers in angels, there is also a lot of interest for non-believers too. There is sections on angels in history, art, music, films and literature for instance that might appeal to non-believers more while for believers there is also sections like angels in religion and real-life angel encounters. For the cooks among the readers there is also a recipes section. Being a former Catholic there was a good bit of it I knew but there was still much information to be learned. It’s quite a short read and is perfect for if you are looking for something that won’t take much time but would like something interesting to read.
From a non-believer’s perspective I did find that I could find other more logical reasons for a lot of the stories in the real encounters section but at the same time I found it interesting to see what people believed and the different angles that led them to that conclusion. The stories were very interesting whether angels were involved or not. Very interesting human stories.
A great, short read.
