MQ Publications An Extraordinary Gathering of Angels

This book is a fresh and unique study of angels from the Jewish and Christian traditions. It features over 170 illustrations which include paintings, frescoes, stained glass windows, icons and sculpture; along with more than 100 extracts and quotations.

The author has included essays on angels in both ancient and modern culture: angels in the Bible and in worship, the ranks of angels, angels as guides and guardians, angels in cosmology and cosmic harmony, and the role of angels in inspiration and revelation. Barker has also added interviews with religious leaders, Jewish and Christian theologians, and writers including Philip Pullman.

As I began reading this book I realized this was written from a wordly perspective (New Age) and is not a Christian book! Yes, the paintings are beautiful but it was very disconcertaing to read that various people the author quoted were not Christians or scriptural. Beware new Christians, this is not a book for you. I returned this book and received a refund.
