Amazon.com Review

Angels: God's Secret Agents is Billy Graham's one-volume introduction to one of the most popular spiritual phenomena of our time. Firmly grounded in Graham's close readings of scripture, Angels testifies to Graham's own encounters with the heavenly beings and also records the many similar stories that other believers have told him over the years. Graham devotes entire chapters to the questions of whether angels are visible or invisible, how they differ from men and women, and how the angelic hierarchy is organized. He also discusses the much-debated theory that UFO sightings are in fact angelic appearances.

Perhaps the primary purpose of this book, however, is to inform readers that armies of angels are ready and willing to help Christians in their daily fights against the forces of darkness. "Millions of angels are at God's command and at our service," Graham writes. "The hosts of heaven stand at attention as we make our way from earth to glory, and Satan's BB guns are no match for God's heavy artillery." Such stirring theological pronouncements are matched with practical advice for believers who wish to know the angelic powers in everyday life. --Kevin Attwood

From the Inside Flap

Relating his personal experiences, Graham helps to call a world in crisis to faith. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
This book is basically a layman's guide to angels. Graham uses the Bible as his only source of information on the subject, and he does a very good job of describing the heavenly hosts to readers. The book was written largely in response to the proliferation of books centering around demonology and New Age ideas in recent years; as he points out, there really aren't many satisfying treatments available of angels per se. Sadly, modern man's conception of angels has been shaped and largely determined by popular entertainment; Graham effectively delineates truth from lies and imaginative thinking. The book is meant to inspire and comfort as much as it is to inform the reader. Graham offers many penetrating insights into the subject, but, most importantly, he lays out the basic facts about angels as they are revealed in the Bible. He describes a hierarchy of angels that is more extensive that I realized--at the top is the archangel Michael, followed by Gabriel, then cherubim and seraphim, and finally a myriad of different principalities, authorities, etc. Angels, Graham argues, perform different functions but serve only to glorify God and assist man in attaining salvation.
While the concept of a hierarchy among angels seems somewhat strange, given that it necessarily implies varying levels of power and authority and, thus, inequality among these divine beings, Graham does an excellent job of explaining what angels do and, more interestingly, what they cannot do. Angels, first and foremost, praise the Lord and work for Him in all things; they serve as His divine warriors and as the protective agents of every Christian in the world.

The Bible tells Christians that we have angels watching over us. Billy Graham focuses on that truth in this book. In the first chapter he discusses the reality of the spirit world and goes on to offer a rationale for a book of this nature. The second chapter is a progression of that thought as he describes the reality and nature of angels. Chapter 3 goes on to look at both the visible and invisble manifestations of angels. Subsequent chapters discuss the differences between humans and angels, angelic organizational structures, angelic rebellion, the ministry of angels, angels as God's agents, and Angels and the Gospel. The book continues by discussing angels involvement in the earthly life of Jesus. From there he goes on to talk about the role of angels in prophecy. A chapter on angels and death is included, as is a section on angels as spiritual spectators. The concluding chapter has to do with angels in the lives of Christians today. I highly recommend this book. He keeps angels in proper perspective, i.e., they point to Jesus.

If you are looking for a quick read, high level overview on the subject of angels as the occur in the Bible, this is a good choice. Billy Graham only discusses angels as they are shown in the Bible and does not draw from other sources for his discussion. Therefore, this is a good 'first read' to get an overall sense of why angels exist and what they do. Each chapter is set up as a stand alone so you can skip to sections that most interest you without missing relevant information. (I highly recommend the chapter on 'The Angels and Death' for anyone suffering from a loss.) This book is not meant to be a comprehensive analysis for the more involved student. It is more for the layperson who would like to understand the subject better, but without all the 'dry' academia that is sometimes associated with more in depth studies. Read it for enjoyement. Read it for pleasure. Read it for encouragement. And know that God is watching over you...

Format: Paperback
Billy Graham, evangelist to millions, father, pastor, and writer has done a good job of working through a topic that has become a flashpoint of discussion and pop culture in recent years- Angels. Graham shares many amazing stories recounted by witnesses that cannot easily be explained away as nonsense. Graham takes a view that these facts need to be represented, examined and shared with other people. You are left to make your own decision about the existence of beings from the heavens, angels, but you are not left without much evidence and information to inventory and work through provided by the author. I read this book twice, once years ago, and more recently, and still cannot blow off what the Rev. has to say about angels. This is an interesting book, and one not to be taken lightly.

Billy Graham does in this book what he does in life......let God do the talking and instructing. So much fluff is written on this subject and it is done with the attempt to take the glory away from God. This of course, is something holy angels would never do as they were created to worship God and to obey Him. Thankfully, Mr. Graham can always be depended on to be faithful to the Word of God and this book is wonderful. For those who are fascinated with angels and want a book about them, in all honesty, this is the only book you'll ever need outside of the Bible. Discover for yourself the beauty of angels and their adoration of Christ their King.
