Lifted By Angels by Joel J. Miller {Book Review}




When was the last time you felt awe with regard to the spiritual reality of and in your daily life?

I trudged slowly through Lifted By Angels- The Presence and Power of our Heavenly Guides and Guardians for a number of reasons. This book, although only 7 Chapters and 152 pages is quite an interesting read, packed with meat to chew on and ponder long after the reading is done. Consider 30 pages of referenced notes! I was awed by some of the details I came across while reading Lifted By Angels. I woke up to the reminder of the angels among us like I never have before as I journeyed through time and history with some of the most respected leaders, thinkers, theologians, philosophers, pastors, artists and teachers

Seeking to clarify the presence, position and potential of angels and angelic activity from the beginning of time to our current period, Mr. Miller pulls back the veil of the unseen spiritual realm and draws our eyes to see what Christian history confirms and recognized readily.

Reading this book was eye opening, and a little bit sobering. Siting, reminding and recalling the numerous angelic interactions with humans throughout the Bible and beyond reminded me of the realm we so often forget in the daily bustle of life. That our great cloud of witnesses includes an angelic, always present, host. That these beings are designed and designated specifically by God, as guides, guardians, protectors, meddlers of the divine conspiracy in the best of ways! 

I am excited to consider all the more the reality of our invisible to the naked eye cheerleaders and co laborers in Christ. Be prepared to be awed. Awaken within your soul a new sense of wonder. 
In this way you too, might just be lifted by angels!

Book Description:Explores the relationship between people and angels, through the eyes of the early church. Heaven is closer than we realize. Its boundaries overlap our own, and angels move in and out of our porous present, this moment that seems to us so solid and concrete. If that reality seems dim to us now, it beamed for the early Christians. Through their writings, sermons, songs, and art, the ancient faithful confessed a powerful and vivid belief that angels help carry us on our journey to God.

I received this book from Booksneeze in return for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
