From the Back Cover

Sent by God

In this intriguing book, Roland Buck describes his personal encounters with angels and what the Bible tells us about these messengers of God. You'll find out how God's messengers impact your own life and how God is using angels to help usher in the great end–times harvest of souls before the return of Jesus. Read how God uses angels to...

* Protect believers
* Wage spiritual warfare
* Comfort and encourage
* Bring blessings
* Bring strength during trials
* Assist in bringing people to Christ
* Disclose God's will
* Bring answers to prayer
* Glorify God's name

As you become aware of the remarkable role of these messengers of God, you'll gain increased faith and confidence in God's plan for your life, for the ministry of believers, and for the salvation of multitudes of people leading to the second coming of Christ.

"Bless the LORD, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word." –– Psalm 103:20 NKJV

About the Author

Roland Buck (1918–1979) was an ordinary man who experienced an extraordinary series of events that were orchestrated by God. In 1939, he graduated from Northwest College in Seattle, Washington, and for the next decade served as pastor with several churches in the Northwest. In 1950, he was called to the pastorate of Central Assembly of God Christian Life Center in Boise, Idaho, where the average Sunday morning attendance grew to over 1800 at the time of his death in 1979. His story continues to bring assurance to thousands worldwide as they learn how God has placed angels with them to protect them from the fiery darts of the enemy.

I read this book aboutten years ago.
Gospel Gramma
I'm always skeptical of claims like Pastor Buck's, but his book certainly squares with the Bible, unless I missed something.
Harlan Simantel
Very encouraging, to think that God will send His angels to encourage us, and strengthen us.

Consider two prophetic predictions made by the author:

Rev. R.H. Buck (of the famous Buck knife family) passed away on November 06, 1979, long ago and had no way of knowing if his predictions would come true.

First, on page 93, Buck claims the Holy Spirit told him: "...I have already given wings to my messages brought to you by the angel of the Lord."

Then, on page 70, Buck claims "God told me the pope has no more influence with him than the least of his saints, and has no greater privileges, but because his influence with man is great, his choice is God's concern. Therefore, in order to help in the restoration of his fragmented body, God had chosen a man named Karol Wojtyla of Poland. This prophecy was fulfilled October 16, 1978, when he began his reign as Pope John Paul II."

Now, there's no way of proving God told Buck about the Pope before his selection. However, Buck, who died in 1979, had no way of knowing whether or not John Paul would even *live* after being selected, let alone be so influential -for over almost 30 years! -until John Paul's death on April 02, 2005, just two days after the passing of Terri Schiavo. Even quite a few Protestants, Jews, and Muslims think highly of John Paul, so it is safe to say Buck's prophecy came true.

Also, while there are many other angel books, it's safe to say that his other prediction has come true: Angels on Assignment is one of the classic books, and is circulated world-wide. Both prophecies came true.

I first read this book when I was much younger, and, as I recall, I couldn't put in down until I was finished. Clearly, this is a subject that fascinates most people!

Did you ever wonder about Angels? Do you
sometimes see a light or feel a brush against
your face? Have you ever all of a sudden
felt a warm flow of love and protection?
Perhaps you are in the presence of angels?
In this book "Angels on Assignment", the
author shares with you, the reader, his experience as God sends His Angels with a message to mankind.
I truly will not even begin to tell you what
is inside of this wonderful book, but I encourage you to read it for yourself.
If you ever wondered what these Holy Beings do, perhaps this will give you some answers and will encourage you in your journey through this world. You are not alone!
Few have been honored to have such an encounter as Mr. Buck has had.
Is it the truth? That will be your decision to make, but I will tell you this, this book had a great impact on my life. I truly will never forget it.

My sister called me in sept 79 and said you have to get this book angels on assignment. She said we just saw Roland Buck and he is real. The most humble man she had ever seen. I don't even like to read but when i finally found the book, it only took me 4 days to read. I bought 10 or more and gave them away. The book last i heard had been translated into more than 15 languages to spread around the world. I talked with Roland after I read the book. He could hear the excitement. He said to me "It's the message not the messenger." That was the same thing that the Angel Gabriel had told him too. Rolland had a bad heart before he saw any Angels but somehow made it thru over 16 Angelic visitations and saw the 120 things that God gave him come to pass and experienced food and drink from Heaven that sustained him. Yes Angels are on Assignment here on earth today. Roland always felt so unworthy to be in their midst. They always had a message right from the Throne of God. They had just come from his presence. That's the love that God has for you and me. This book is a must read. I have always wanted to go to Boise Idaho ever since reading that book in sept 79. That same month we conceived our first daughter that God answered prayer for us after childless for 5yrs. It revived me. My Soul came alive from all of the Scripture that was in the book. Thank you our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I found nothing in Sr. Pastor Buck's accounts of angelic encounters to be in conflict with Scripture; and give his exciting look into God's military OP forces the highest recommendation; this revealing account of Michael and God's fighting forces; Gabriel and other "chief of staff" communicators, is indeed awesome and delightful; packed full of insights and life-enriching points and pointers. Pastor Buck also delves into God's throne room system including preplanning all details of all persons' lives; God's record-keeping system, etc., etc. No other book has as much inside info on angel activities; nor as wide a scope. God obviously set it all up so we eventually would pick up and use what Rev. Buck experienced to enrich our understanding of how much God loves people and recognize some of the depth of His love by peeking in on how much activity goes on behind the scenes to demonstrate his love and support for His highest level of creation: people. I believe an even far-larger audience is yet to be exposed to Rev. Buck's account; somehow this storyline is going to be multiplied exponentially in the near future to reach huge masses of people and encourage them to study and read God's ultimate message in the Holy Bible.

Like others I read the book years ago, and loaned and lost it; then when online [...] became possible, located another used copy here at Amazon and got back what I had lost; hanging on much tighter this time to a real keepsake item.
