Jacqueline Howard offers an insightful and detailed look into the existence of these celestial beings, and bolsters her conclusions with sound biblical information. The book, Angels, begins by defining angels and contrasting the biblical description of these beings to the commercial images that are prevalent in the 21st Century. Howard cites many scriptural references that support their existence. To know an angel may require one to suspend one’s judgment and reason, open up one’s heart, and mind to the wondrous possibilities that many only dream about. A person may be comfortable with his or her own private thoughts about angels but may be reluctant to discuss these supernatural spirits with a friend. After all, what physical proof is there? Is it illogical to fathom the idea of angels? Who believes that heavenly beings are helping us? Scripture leads us to have faith and believe, read John 20:29b (KJV) which states, “blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”
