Today’s interest in the supernatural often seems to put the emphasis on demons, ghosts and other evil powers. But what about the forces of good? Angels are thought by some to be purely the province of song lyrics, fairy tales and popular mythology, yet they are mentioned nearly three hundred times in the Bible and are in fact a very real source of comfort and strength for many people today.
Angels: God’s Secret Agents is Billy Graham’s one-volume introduction to one of the most popular spiritual phenomena of our time. Firmly grounded in Graham’s close readings of scripture, Angels testifies to Graham’s own encounters with the heavenly beings and also records the many similar stories that other believers have told him over the years. Graham devotes entire chapters to the questions of whether angels are visible or invisible, how they differ from men and women and how the angelic hierarchy is organised. He also discusses the much-debated theories that UFO sightings are in fact angelic appearances. Perhaps the primary purpose of this book, however, is to inform readers that armies of angels are ready and willing to help Christians in their daily fights against the forces of darkness. “Millions of angels are at God’s command and at our service”, Graham writes. “The hosts of heaven stand at attention as we make our way from earth to glory, and Satan’s guns are no match for God’s heavy artillery”. Such stirring theological pronouncements are matched with practical advice for believers who wish to know the angelic powers in everyday life. —Simon Priestly
