The book is pretty straightforward. Dr. Jeremiah seeks to share with the reader everything the Bible says about angels, who they are, and what they do. What is most encouraging about the book is that Jeremiah is not interested in folklore or common myths and legends regarding angels. He only cares about what the Bible says. Throughout the book, Jeremiah raises questions regarding angels that many people ask and always draws the reader to the text of Scripture, not to pop culture. It is amazing how many things we believe about angels are actually remnants of pop culture which have no resemblance of what the Bible teaches.
Overall, the book was really good. Jeremiah is first and foremost a pastor and writes as one. Anyone looking for a deep theological treatment of the text will not find what they are looking for here. Jeremiah's appeal is to laymen and women. He writes with simplicity and clarity that are imperative for pastoral ministry. Jeremiah has clearly studied the subject and carefully articulated what the Bible says on the subject. Certainly he could have gone in more detail in some areas, but overall, Dr. Jeremiah offers a precise, yet thorough enough treatment of the subject to satisfy the reader.
The subject of angels is important for Christians to study. What Graham did in the 20th Century regarding the subject, Jeremiah is doing in the 21st. I have always said that Christians should study and know subjects like angels, demons, spiritual warfare, heaven, hell, and other supernatural subjects. I would recommend this book to anyone interested or confused in the subject, even those with little or no biblical knowledge.
