Angels are for Real by Judith MacNutt
I have always been intrigued with angels and have believed in them....and I've had a few encounters with them too. "Angels are for Real" is a fascinating book by Judith MacNutt, who uses several Scriptural references, as well as real life encounters of others' experiences with angelic beings. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.
Publisher Description: Angels have a vital role in the Kingdom of God--and in the lives of believers. Yet many Christians treat the existence of angels lightly or fail to consider them at all. In Angels Are Real Judith MacNutt pulls back the curtain on this intriguing topic, recounting inspiring, true-life stories and miraculous interactions, revealing what the Bible says about these heavenly beings, and offering insight into the spiritual realm. She draws on solid scriptural support to explore what angels look like what they do why they are important in believers' lives the heavenly hierarchy what fallen angels are and more. Angels Are Real is an accessible, comprehensive, encouraging guide for Christians. When believers grasp the importance of angels to God--and themselves--they will better understand God's power and his extraordinary love.
