For example, Lightner asks if Christians have guardian angels. He then gives the different views in summary form, then repeats Matthew 18:10, and then moves on. Implications, exegesis, and a solid answer will simply not be found.
In fact, the most in depth and helpful part of the book is the excursus on Genesis 6. There Lightner explains the three major views, and helpfully gives their problems and his preferred view. Beyond this section though, that kind of deep research is lacking.
Lightner does believe that Christians cannot be possessed by demons, that angels were created by God, and that Satan is real and on the earth today. While he says the most comprehensive treatment of angels in the Bible is Hebrews 1-2, he deals with that passage in one paragraph, puts the phrase "the world to come" in the future millennium, ignores the connection to Psalm 8, and then moves on. In short, this book would be good for someone looking almost for an index about "where does the Bible teach `x' about angels," but would not be helpful for the person who wants to go deeper into angelology.
The 2-star review for this book is actually pretty accurate in terms of the content. There are a lot of Scripture references, and a lot of repeating what the Bible says, but not too much detailed exegesis. So if you're looking for something in depth, this is not what you're looking for. But if you're looking for an introduction, it's not bad.
it brings to light so many question and brings up more question of Genesis 6.
I will keep this one for future reference.
