Angels are everywhere—in movies, television shows, figurines, books, magazine articles and seminars. This would seem to be very good news. After all, the Bible does have a lot to say about angels, mentioning them 273 times. Should we not welcome such widespread interest in a biblical topic?
All too often, the only connection between the current angel-mania and the Bible is the teaching that angels exist.
In this straightforward and easy-to-read volume, Roger Ellsworth sets the record straight, putting the biblical view of angels in a clear and helpful way, dealing with such topics as what are the seraphim and cherubim, angels as ministering spirits, and the role of angels at the beginning and end of time. Above all is his concern to drive us to the one the angels themselves adore—the Lord Jesus Christ.
