Format: Paperback
Angels, Archangels and Angel Categories was concise and to the point.
It didn't rely too much on extraneous references that would only make it look like a research document.
The information shared was easy to find and very helpful, especially for someone trying to find more concentrated knowledge
about the Apocrypha, i.e. early Christian writings about Angels and their dealings with the ancients that were left out of the Bible.

Ann Nyland continues to be a great fount of knowledge about early Christianity, Qabalah and Enochian Mysticism.

Format: Paperback
My only criticism is that the introduction throws you into the deep end without warning. Its quite clear that Dr Nyland has an incredible depth of knowledge on the subject - the introduction could have been longer and more gradual.

I think this book is necessary for individuals who take this knowledge seriously and wish to bring themselves up to the next level. If you examine the content you'll notice that Dr Nyland is capable of straightening out the details to ensure that the information you're being given is more accurate that most sources available today.

The highlight of this book, for me, was chapter 2. In it Nyland describes the topic with reference to a variety of sources, not limited to a single dogma. This demonstrates to me that Nyland has no intention to sensationalize the content, but rather to present it with a passion for truth and accuracy. Presentation of knowledge and observations is comprehensive and flows like an essay on the topic, designed to meet the needs of a reader who desires to incorporate such knowledge into a knowledge framework; ideas are linked so that you remain stimulated and not labored to go on.

Presentation style and execution of ideas is somewhat similar in chapter 3. I think if you ever needed a comprehensive list of historically accurate descriptions on the topic, this book will do the job and take the effort out of finding this information for yourself. I think what's valuable about this reference is that Nyland is in a good position to judge the accuracy of the information that is out there and to correct misleading facts in light of her experience with translating the Greek language, gathered from Nyland's other books.

This book will be my most trusted reference on the topic for as long as it takes for a better to come along.

Format: Paperback
This book contains a wealth of information about angels. As an author myself, I feel this book would be an extremely helpful research tool when writing books, articles, or (in the case of students) homework assignments.

There are several categories of angels explained in nice detail. I'm sure you're familiar with cherubim and seraphim, but have you heard of ophanin and nephalim? The explanations include translations (as well as mis-translations) and passages in the Bible and other books that refer to each type of angel. Not only are the types of angels explained, but an extensive list of names is given stating identities, actions, misinterpretations and various spellings.

As I touched on previously, I believe the information displayed in this book would come in very handy for someone wanting to orient themselves on the history of angels, or just interested in these heavenly creatures.

I have read many books on Enoch and angels, some of which were public domain books or thinly disguised public domain books. I was pleased to see that Dr Nyland, a well known scholar of note and integrity, has put out this book on what the ancients said about angels.

I have all Dr Nyland's Books of Enoch and her translation of The Book of Jubilees. This book is a welcome addition. I highly recommend it. So many books on angels say what modern fiction authors said, but I am pleased to see that this book has the facts from the ancient sources. It also has excellent referencing and footnotes.

Format: Paperback
This book is the best resource I have found that includes pertinent information concerning Ophanin, Seraphim, Cherubim, and Nephilim. Each section points to its source. I was familiar with the references to Nephilim in Genesis 6:1-4 and Jude 14's direct quote from 1 Enoch, but somehow I had overlooked 2 Peter 2:4-8! The Books of Enoch and Jubilees are very important and should not be dismissed out of fear of what the church leaders have been withholding for centuries. It is time for the truth to be revealed and Dr. Nyland is doing a wonderful job at bringing the truth through her translations of the ancient writings.

I recommend Angels, Archangels and Angel Categories to anyone interested in this subject. This book made me realize just how unimportant this world that we live in is in comparison to the vastness of the universe that God created.

Format: Paperback
Outstanding Work, in my opition it will be refered to for decades to come. Is great for a Church, classroom, personal study, etc. setting or study. A must have on any "Well Read" or "Academic" bookshelf.

I was very happy to finally see Clarity to the subject of Angels. Its rather disturbing that there are no clear books, texts, etc. written on this subject. I found Dr. Nylands work here of great value and I'll be refering to it for years to come. It reminded me of the greatly concise works by the greats in the fields of archeology and symbology. For it had the depth of knowledge and the insights of symbolism. Yet it didn't get lost in the weight of the subject matter or reference materials. It also only "Adds" to the referenced materials and in no way adds the far fetched theories or ideas that float arround this subject.

If I might add but one critism it would be the lack of diagrammatic respresentations of the Angel Categories (Ch # 2) and/or Angels A-Z (Ch # 3). I believe that a work such as this would be of total benefit if it included both the symbols of each and a illustration.

But dispite this wee addition, Thanks Dr. Nyland for this wonderfully rewarding and insightful work.

Rev. James R.A. Smith
