Review

"An extraordinary, intelligent book" -- The Daily Mail

From the Publisher

Emma's university doctoral research was the first academic study into contemporary angelic experiences and assessed such experiences and attitudes in the U.K. A BBC Everyman documentary was made around her work and she has since featured heavily in the media talking about the angel findings and about her subsequent books - After Death Communication and They Walk Among Us, both also exploring others spiritual and numinous experiences.

By Lilly Penhaligon TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 30 Mar. 2007
Format: Paperback
This is an unusual book in that most books on angels and spirits are written by people who subscribe wholeheartedly to Spiritism or Spiritualism (whichever you prefer to call it) and declare their faith in an afterlife, a spirit world adn the presence of angels. This book is different because it was written by a sceptic as part of her PhD thesis on angel visions and experiences. What I liked about this was that the author never tries to get you to believe that everything in her book is real - she simply presents the stories and leaves it up to you to decide what the experiences were.

This book is the culmination of 4 years' work on ordinary people's experiences of angels. Members of the public were encouraged to send their stories to the author as part of her doctoral study. For the most part then, this book includes a wide selection of these angel stories.

Bearing in mind that this is based on a PhD thesis, the book starts in a fairly academic style with a thorough explanation of the research proposal and teh manner in which data was collected but it is far from boring and helps contextualise the stories that follow.

The stories themselves are broken down into various sections - for example: Angel Visions/Experiences at time of death (of loved ones); Angel Visions in the Blind; Angel Warnings etc etc and are told in the same words as were submitted (i.e. the author did not edit or change them to fit in with her work). I found some of the stories a bit eerie but at the same time, I found all of them exceptionally inspiring, beautiful and really comforting.

I like this book. Was looking for for factual accounts that could help me understand and corroborate my own experiences, it has. There are no experiences that correspond with mine precisely but as Emma Heathcote-James has approached the subject in an academic manner I find it believable which helps me on a personal level. Find myself dipping into it at the times I'm filled with doubt.
Would highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced this sort of phenomenon.

This book is fascinating! It hundreds of real-life stories about how people have been effected by Angels. So do they exist? Have we all got a guardian angel? After reading this, it seems possible.
This isn't a religious, self-help book, it's just a great read. So, If you want a book which will make think, get this one!

I really enjoyed this book. It was recommended to me by my Spiritual Director, after a discussion we had on angels. I found it a credible read, missing the slush and sentimentality of other "Angels" books, and looking without judgement into people's angel experiences. Well worth a read, whether you are believer or sceptic.
