Angels appear in the greatest of biblical moments: at the gates of the Garden of Eden, at the birth of Christ, and at the tomb of the resurrection. But modern-day Christians tend to either dismiss angels as fantasy or caricaturize them as one-dimensional cherubs.
Episcopal priest Kate Moorehead invites us into a more dynamic understanding of the realm of the angels. Her devotions recount fifty key appearances of angels in the Old and New Testaments as she shares stirring theological reflections on the presence of angels and our life of faith. The Bible asks us to read and digest its stories. We should recall what God has done before and also watch for what God is doing now. If we embrace the Bible as something more than a history book, we must open our minds to the continued existence of angels and try to understand the role of angels within our own lives.
The book features 56 full-color pages with depictions of angels throughout history. Art professor and scholar P. Scott Brown offers historical and theological context for these paintings of pivotal angelic appearances, including the Annunciation, the Celestial Hierarchy, and the Final Battle from Revelation.
Angels of the Bible has received a bronze medal in the Devotional category of The Illumination Award.
