PSN5: Angels of God

If you're like me, you're sick of hearing and seeing promotions for Ron Howard's Angels and Demons. Well, I've discovered an antidote: Go out and buy Mike Aquilina's Angels of God. And, while you're at it, have your library buy it too!

Title: Angels of God: The Bible, the Church and the Heavenly Hosts
Author: Mike Aquilina

ISBN-10: 0867168986

Comments: As the catalog says: forget the sweet-faced cherubs of popular culture, and brace yourself for a far more potent reality: powerful heavenly beings who play a significant role in the drama of your daily life. Our fellowship with the angels (says Aquilina) is “not an ornament on our religion; it’s a life skill.”

RUSSELL SHAW: “Angels of God is a learned, readable and ultimately inspiring account — based on Scripture, the teaching and worship of the Church, and the real-life experience of many individuals — of the role played by these heavenly friends of ours in God’s providential plan and in our lives. If you want to get to know your guardian angel, start here.”
MARCUS GRODI: “… by far one of the most thorough and helpful books I’ve ever read about angels. Michael’s book remains safely within the boundaries of Sacred Tradition and gives readers a clearer understanding of ourselves, in relation to God and his heavenly realm.”
FATHER T.G. MORROW: Everything you ever wanted to know about angels and never asked. Another big hit for Mike Aquilina.”
