Format: Paperback
Having purchased and read this several years ago, I was delighted to meet Ms.Burnham when she approached our balloon during a hot air balloon rally. I mentioned to her that I had often fallen asleep clutching her book. She said Thank you, I understand exactly what you are saying. If you buy only one book on this subject, make sure that it is this one! Her writing style is clear and easy to understand. Very straightforward and ironically, "down to earth". A feeling of warmth like that of a friendly hug flows through the pages of this book. I purchased this book at a time when I was searching for comfort from a hectic world and found that within the pages of Ms. Burnham's work.

An Epiphany 6 Sept. 2000
By Amy H. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I believe we have more than one epiphany in our lives, and this book was at the center of one of my greatest. I was given a burden which I believe is one of the heaviest God asks any of His children to carry, and this book helped set me on a spiritual path which ultimately saved my life and my sanity. This is not an easy or sweet look at God's messengers. It explores angels in history, in literature, in religions and throughout most cultures. I grew up in a religion which was very narrow and which didn't place emphasis on angels except as they ministered to great people. This book changed my mind and opened whole new doors and avenues for exploration. I've been on that journey of encouragement and hope for four years now, and because of it, I see traditional theology differently and MORE POSITIVELY. I believe the writing of this book was inspired and I can't thank Ms. Burnham enough for giving me this stepping stone. I've had many unexpected and beautiful experiences in the midst of a grief so profound it's at times physically painful, and this is one of the books which helped me accept those experiences and know that reality is much more than the confines of the world we see.

A Thrilling Exploration into Angelic Realms 31 Dec. 2002
By Cynthia Sue Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A BOOK OF ANGELS is my favorite source of information on the subject of angels, because it contains the most dazzling array of myths and stories about angels one could ever hope to find in one book. I am equally delighted with its thrilling personal accounts of the way human poets, mystics and saints (such as Blake, Dante, Dostoyevski, Goethe, Milton, Poe, Rilke, Shakespeare and Swedenborg) have interacted with angels throughout history. Beautiful illustrations and quotes appear on almost every page, such as this lovely one from Saint Augustine, "Every visible thing in this world is put in the charge of an angel."
Author Sophy Burnham did not grow up believing in angels or miracles, yet when she was a young adult, she watched an angel save her life. "I saw him the way you see the words on this page: the colors, the magnificent leap of my heart on seeing him -- HOME! cried my soul as he scooped me out of the path of death."
Whether you talk to angels every day, or wonder whether it's possible that they could exist, A BOOK OF ANGELS is certain to become your favorite book for exploring the angelic realms!

Stories of angels to comfort and astound... 30 April 2000
By Laura Haggarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book several years ago, just after my beloved grandmother died. I was heartbroken, and on the way to her funeral saw this book (and another on angels) in the airport bookstore. I bought it on impulse, and found it to be the perfect thing to read on the way to her funeral.
The book is filled with stories of encounters with angels, stories that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, stories that made me weep, stories that made me realize that despite death, all really was right in the world, and that we were always surrounded by those who loved us, guarded us, protected us, even if we couldn't see them. This book brought comfort to me in a time of great sorrow, and I'll always be glad I bought it.

Direct Encounters with the Divine 27 April 2006
By OAKSHAMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
_I have read this book through at least three times since its first publication. It isn't the most scholarly, and it certainly isn't the most dogmatic, of angelic studies. What it is, is an honest, sincere exploration of the miraculous and mysterious in life. The author surveys reports of the angelic from all times and cultures. Like all true mystics her motivation came from a desire to understand her own personal experiences. It is for this reason that I identify with it also.

_Some people will roll their eyes and automatically dismiss any discussion of angels. These are those types that have hardened their hearts out of excessive and exclusive materialism and rationalism. However, according to Platonic principle, like attracts like. Those who resonate with hardness and darkness shall attract the like, while those who resonate with harmony, beauty, mercy (the Good) will attract the Universal Soul. Angels are the servants and messengers of this Universal Soul.

_On a more mundane note, this is an extremely well designed and illustrated book (as should be all books touching on spiritual matters.) The illustrations by Gustave Dore' and William Blake are especially powerful.
