"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

There are so many entries that I decided to test the information listed for some facts I had read from other sources. I checked on the entry for "ARCHANGELS" and it was a fairly large entry. It listed information that I was aware of, such as the 9 Ranks of different angel and some that I thought where high ranking angels, Archangels, were actually 8th Rank, one from the bottom, only above regular angels/guardian angels. The other entry I reviewed was the METATRON. He is the angel of highest rank and has been called "King of Angels","Chancellor of Heaven", "Heavenly Scribe". He occupies the thone next to the Divine Throne, in 7th Heaven (the dwelling place of God). The Metatron is said to be mightier than Michael and Gabriel and is said to be appointed over them both. He is the angel that lead the children of Israel through the wilderness and stayed the hand of Abraham at the impending sacrific of Isaac.
The appendices list Angelic writing, symbols and letters. Another section lists the numerical sequence of the 9 ranks of angels, as they vary from text to text. A considerable amount of information is included in the appendices. Although I just scanned the newly received book, it appears the a great deal of information is provided, related to the 3 Abrahamic Religions. I believe other religions are also included with their own sections and their own "variations on a theme". Throughout the dictionary, there are black & white pictures of angels, from various cultures and times.
One probably wouldn't read it from beginning to end (It's a dictionary. No plot) but it is a good reference book that you can seek specific knowledge or just "open it" and read something new. The dictionary has an Introduction and many of the dictionary section entries refer back to their source text.
I feel I can highly recommend this book for research or just casual reading. Worth the price is the highest endorsement, I can give. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
The book has many black and white illustrations; there is probably one every three to five pages or so. They are good looking, but this definitely isn't a picture book.
The book is a pretty good size, and has MANY more angels than I was aware of; it'll take me a while to get through all of them.
The book is indeed a dictionary. While there are longer passages and descriptions which I found fun to read, this book is a list of the angels, categorized by name, with anything from a one sentence blurb to a few pages devoted to descriptions and info about them. If you are looking for a dictionary, it's spectacular.
If that description sounds like what you want, you should definitely pick up this book. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
