Children and Angels: True stories of angelic help in times of troubles [Paperback]

Glennyce S. Eckersley

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

2 Sep 1999
Angels - and stories of rescues by angels - have become increasingly popular in recent years. Here, in Glennyce Eckersley's new book, she takes up that part of this fascinating subject which has so far been little dealt with: children and their encounters with angels. She shows how children experience angels in many different forms: in traditional guise, with wings; as simply a light or a fragrance; as heavenly voices and music - or in modern-day clothing. Full of heartwarming, true stories from all over the world, CHILDREN AND ANGELS is an enchanting book that can open our eyes to new possibilities, and to other worlds.

More About the Author

Glennyce Eckersley is an internationally acclaimed writer and broadcaster. She lives in Manchester, in the north of England. Originally science based, she worked for many years in the medical research laboratories of ICI. She took a career break to live and work in Los Angeles for several years, before returning to England.

After marrying and bringing up two daughters, Glennyce changed direction by becoming a member of staff at New Church Theological College in Manchester, a training college for ministerial students in the Swedenborgian denomination. Although not a Swedenborgian herself, Glennyce discovered that many of the philosopher and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg's teachings related to angels, which gave her inspiration for her own writing. In 2002 she retired from the college to concentrate on her books and media work.

Her first book, An Angel at My Shoulder, was published in 1996 by Rider books, Random House, and quickly became a best seller in many countries. Several more books have followed over the years, including Angels and Miracles, Angels to Watch Over Us, Saved by the Angels, Teenangel and her most recent work, An Angel to Guide Me. She has co-authored three books - An Angel Forever, Angel Awakenings and Believe and Receive -with the American spiritual teacher Gary Quinn. All her books have proved to be very successful internationally, and have been translated into several languages, including Dutch, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese and Indonesian.

Glennyce appears regularly on radio and television, and is the resident angel expert on the hit Sky Real Lives series Angels. She lectures widely in the UK and abroad, and is a feature writer for the German magazine Engle.

Amazon Review

Stories of angels visiting those in need and guiding them through times of trouble have become more and more commonplace over recent years, perhaps because we are more willing these days to discuss things that would have previously been ridiculed, perhaps simply because the human race seems to need more guidance than ever before in its history. Whatever the reason, there can be no denying that those who have experienced such visitations firmly believe they have been touched by an angel, and in many cases are adamant that this touch has saved their lives.

The subject is huge, and indeed fascinating, and whether you take the scientific or spiritual stand on the topic, there can be no denying that the people who believe they have encountered angelic intervention are left with not only an astonishing tale to tell, but also a lasting sense that someone somewhere is watching over them and taking care of them.

This feeling of total security is never more important than for a child, and in Children and Angels Glennyce S. Eckersley explores this theme by recounting stories of children who have experienced the presence of an angel during times of need. From children who are saved from life-threatening situations to those who needed comfort or simply something to believe in, the author has collected a remarkable range of true stories which illustrate that there really could be something just out of reach, something we are mostly unaware of, something that perhaps defies explanation, but something that those who believe they have been touched by angels draw tremendous comfort from.

There is a tendency towards sentimentality throughout the book, but to be fair it is difficult to imagine how the subject of children and angels could be dealt with without a touch of schmaltz. What this means, however, is that rather than getting a groundbreaking study of the phenomena, we have instead a charismatic and deeply touching collection of stories guaranteed to touch the heart, if not necessarily the soul, encouraging readers to open their minds to endless possibilities. --Susan Harrison
