People are increasingly aware that there are supernatural beings who are active in their lives. Seeing angels is however very rare unless you have a near-death experience or God grants you the vision to see the unseen realm. It was interesting to learn that angels are mentioned almost 300 times in the Bible. Angels seem to have feelings, war against evil unseen forces and take the faithful to heaven when they die. This book also mentions how angels operated in Jesus' life during his earthly ministry.
I have my own angel story as I almost drowned while living in Africa and on vacation. I believe an angel reached down into a wave and pulled me out when the power of the wave was too strong for me to get out of the wave myself. The angel looked like a human but I don't remember him speaking to me or staying too long. Once I was older I figured out that sometimes angels help us in bodily form. The reason I think it was an angel was because no one else was around to see me in the wave.
So if you are looking for a book that discusses mostly biblical angels, you may enjoy this. This is not about angel numbers or your personal guardian angels, etc. I still think when I see the number 11:11 or 5:55 on my clocks, the angels in my life are saying hello.

(God's Secret Agents)
God's special creation, His angels, have very special purposes. They guide, comfort, protect and provide for the people of God, especially in the midst of suffering and persecution. They give strength when needed.
Angels minister to God's servants in time of hardship and danger. Through them God performs miracles, "delivering them from disease, calamity, accidents, and even death."
Angels have "worked to carry out God's judgment," directing the destinies of disobedient men and nations. Angels do not spend all their time in heaven. They are "busy around the world carrying out God's orders." Angels are mighty! And, angels do sing.
Angels do not deviate from God's plan or dilute His messages. They glorify only God. Angels have a rank among them. Graham thinks this might be the order: Archangels, angels, seraphim, cherubim, principalities, authorities, powers, thrones, might and dominion. See Rom. 8:38.
Lucifer/Satan is that great angel who fell. Graham thinks he took 1/3 of the angels with him before God placed Adam and Eve in the garden. This fall is recorded in Isaiah 14:12-15. (Hear the "I this" and "I that".)
Look around the evil work in our world. See the occult. See the saturation in the media, especially in movies, in video games, and books. (Extreme violence, coarse language, explicit sex)
See 2 Cor. 2:11 for encouragement: Be on guard, calm and alert, "lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices."
Satan controls "one of the most powerful and well-oiled war machines in the universe." His mighty force is "capable of wreaking havoc among individuals, families and nations." They are dedicated to discord and destruction. This includes corruption of moral standards and waste of human resources. But in the end, Satan will be defeated by Jesus and His angels.
Angels do have a role in our future. Graham says: They will help God to change a world of sin and disorder to one of righteousness and perfect peace. What an awesome prophecy!
