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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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
While I am not a person that has ever been intrigued with Angels, I was recommended this book by my dear and sweet aunt. So, on her recommendation, I bought it and read it. I was IMPRESSED! Dr. Graham presents a totally Biblical account of the roles Angels play and how these unseen beings play such a role in our everyday lives. In this book, Dr. Graham even discusses the Biblical account of the fall of Satan and his angels. If you are a Christian, this book should be required reading.

Billy Graham really brings home the reality of angels in this book and how they are not some imaginary beings, but mighty warriors used by God for His purposes.
