I would recommend this book to those interested in NDEs; I would also recommend this book to those who are interested in the mortification, stigmatic, and pain aspects of Catholicism, which are dwelled on quite extensively in this book. I'd also recommend this book to anyone interested in saints. But to someone purely interested in angels, I regret I have to advise you to look elsewhere for real substance on that subject.
The French to English translation and editing leave a little to be desired, but the content more than makes up for it. BUY THIS BOOK! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!
This being a first edition, there are also numerous typos and other mistakes. But to the substance of the book.
The author, whose jokes are often flat, focuses mainly on Near Dear Experiences and saints, and from these things, he looks into guardian angels and angels, but you will know far more about NDE's and saints than you will about angels proper. The author has read exstensively on both NDE's and saints, and he gives us his sum up of what he learned.
I admit it was an interesting read despite the bad translation and bad jokes of the author, but eventually it feels like the topic of guardian angel was barely touched upon - although I admit I wouldn't know where else to look for more had I been the author.
That said, more could have been done if the author had focused more on angels rather than on NDE's and saints. The Cathechism of the Catholic Church defines angels as "spirits" and that "angel" is not their name, but the name of their office, for instance.Read more ›
Having experienced first-hand an un-seen force that physically & forcefully blocked me from 2 potentially catastrophic accidents I am firmly convinced we have a guardian "something" that is always there. This book confirms my belief as countless people have had similar occurrences.
Aside from the angel aspect, this book provides solace that death is NOT the end of our existence, just a "change of venue".
