A Rumor of Biblical Angels


#1

I’m almost done reading this book. It’s short but pretty good. The author looks at almost every case where angels are mentioned in the Bible, and offers a metaphorical interpretation for each one. The author does not believe angels are actual creatures. He thinks they were literary devices.

The author theorizes that “angel” is a term used to describe different things in different contexts. Including: prophets, rulers, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, a person’s internal struggle.

I bear witness to having seen an angel with wings. They are real creatures. He was calling out my name. The sound of his voice was of a beauty beyond this world. Peace.

I finished the book today. I would give it 3.5 to 4 (out of 5) stars.
