Who They Are, What They Do, and Why It Matters
The Truth About Angels
Myths about angels are everywhere. Do we become angels when we die? Are angels always hovering nearby, on guard to protect us from danger? Can we talk to them? Many of our ideas about angels come from the media, which is more interested in ratings and ticket sales than truth. It's important for Christians to understand what angels really are.
Pastor Jack Graham walks you through Scripture, revealing the truth about angels and what they offer us: encouragement, counsel, confirmation of God's will, strength, protection, wisdom, companionship, and more. Focusing on practical application, Dr. Graham separates fact from fiction and demonstrates that the main role of angels isn't to draw attention to themselves, but to point us toward Christ.
"I consider Jack Graham to be a key voice for the church in these turbulent days. His commitment to Christ is unshakable, his clear teaching is inspiring, and his leadership is desperately needed. This book is yet another valuable contribution from a dear saint."
Max Lucado, pastor, bestselling author, Glory Days
"I read everything Jack Graham writes because he loves God's Word and knows how to communicate it with integrity and impact. You will see the world around you differently and experience a greater connection to the unseen world when you read his new book, Angels."
Dr. James MacDonald, senior pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel, author, Act Like Men and Vertical Church
"This book is classic Jack Graham--great biblical teaching, wonderful stories, and terrific applications for readers."
Christine Caine, author, Undaunted, founder, The A21 Campaign
"Jack Graham shines an angelic light from Scripture on the mysterious topic of angels as instruments used in the hand of God. While angels will never possess the salvation offered freely to all people by the Lord Jesus himself, they are used to carry out his plan of redemption (Hebrews 1:14). We will never know the full impact of their presence among us, but a glimpse into the stories Jack shares will bolster your faith in God. As time on earth nears the end, God will use an angel to spread the glorious Gospel one more time: 'Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth--to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people--saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him"' (Revelation 14:6-7). As you read Angels, remember that God has given us every comfort and every promise for His glory."
Franklin Graham, president & CEO, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan's Purse
"Jack Graham has done it again. His treatment of the topic of angels will move you from confusion to curiosity and on to clarity. Through compelling stories you will learn a great deal about angels . . . but this time from a biblical worldview. After you've read Angels, I guarantee you'll be on the lookout for them."
Dave Stone, pastor, Southeast Christian Church, Louisville, Kentucky
