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.
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.
