 Our Description

 

A Book of Angels
by Marigold Hunt

 

Modern believers may be tempted to look upon angels as one of the more fanciful elements of Scripture, but this illuminating and entertaining collection of angel stories from the Bible shows that there are just too many angels for them to be metaphorical, allegorical, or unimportant.

So that children will come to know and learn to revere angels, Marigold Hunt explains what angels are (and are not!) and gathers here in one volume most of the stories of angels in the Bible, including exciting tales of:

  • The fallen angels, beginning with the devil himself, tempting Adam and Eve

  • The angel who barred the gates of Eden so Adam and Eve could never enter again.

  • The angels who announced that Sara, Abraham’s aged wife, would have a baby.

  • The angels who tried to save Lot from destruction with the city of Sodom.

  • The angel who stayed Abraham’s hand as he was about to sacrifice his son Isaac

  • The angels in Jacob’s dream who climbed the stairway to Heaven

  • The angels who saved Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago from the fiery furnace

  • The angel Raphael, who shielded Tobias from death, and protected his wife Sara

  • The angels at the Ascension who chided the apostles for staring at the sky

  • The angel Gabriel, who foretold the birth of Jesus and John the Baptist

  • The choirs of angels who sang above Bethlehem when Jesus was born

  • The angel who carried food to Daniel when he was imprisoned in the lion’s den

  • The angel who freed Peter from prison, and, of course:

  • The countless angels who fill the marvelous pages of the Book of Revelation

Children will be charmed by these exciting tales.

This item received 5 stars overall. Introduce your child to the angels of the bible

Over the past several weeks my daughter, who is nearly nine, and I have been reading A Book of Angels.  The book is comprised of well known bible stories that feature angels.  The vast majority of the stories are taken from the Old Testament and there are a few stories that are from the New Testament.

I liked how this book took stories that may not be well understood by young children and presented them in a way that could be easily grasped and retained by the reader.  My daughter was able to read this book chapter by chapter and then summarize each story for me.  She came away from reading this book with a newfound appreciation for bible stories.  She enjoyed reading the stories and found them very interesting.  I particularly liked when she would read a story and then come to me and ask me if we hadn't heard that story before at Mass or s Full Review...

Memorial

    * 29 September
    * 8 May – Apparition of Saint Michael and Protector of Cornwall

Profile

    Archangel. Leader of the army of God during the Lucifer uprising. Devotion is common to Muslims, Christians and Jews, and there are writings about him in all three cultures. Considered the guardian angel of Israel, and the guardian and protector of the Church. In the Book of Daniel (12:1), Michael is described as rising up to defend the Church against the Anti-Christ.

    The feast of the Apparition of Saint Michael commemorates appearance of the archangel to a man named Gargan in 492 on Mount Gargano near Manfredonia in southern Italy. Gargan and others were pasturing cattle on the mountain; a bull wandered off and hid in a cave. An arrow was shot into the cave, but it came flying back out and wounded the archer. The cowherds went to their bishop who ordered three days of fasting and prayer to seek an explanation for the mystery. At the end of the three days Michael appeared to the bishop and requested a church built in the honour of the Holy Angels in the cave. If you find medals or holy cards with ‘relics‘ of Michael, they are probably rock chips from the cave, or pieces of cloth that have touched it.
