Stone has experienced the manifestation of angels and believes such visitations will become more frequent in these end times. We can and should believe God is sending angels to help us.
Stones looks at how angels functioned in the Bible, such as their roles in healing, revelation, dreams and visions, death of believers, salvation, protection, spiritual warfare and judgment. He tells many stories from his own experience, from others he knows and from early church writers.
He has an Appendix at the back of the book including twenty one tough questions about angels. The one I found most fascinating was whether angels might at times appear to look like family members. He notes that angels are generally invisible to us but can take on human appearance, such as when they visited Lot. While Scripture is not clear on this issue, he notes that some people have seen angels who looked much like a loved one. Stone is not conclusive in his answer but does offer much to think about.
I recommend this book to readers who want to know about how angels functioned in the Bible and how they may be operating today. You'll read of many encouraging experiences. You will also be encouraged to pray that God would send His angels to minister to those you care about.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
