5.0 out of 5 stars An Insight on Angels, 27 July 2010
This is a superb book that covers a lot of ground in a short space. I read this on a return train journey from Exeter to Birmingham. If you want a quick overview that takes in some theology (mainly from the Judeo-Christian perspective) and some cultural references to representations of angels then this is well worth the spend. There are a few oversights of detail, for example, the author states that angels do not hold harps in the book of Revelation p.23. If you look at Revelation 5:8 you can see that the living creatures and the elders are holding harps. These are invariably refered to as angelic beings by theologians.
