A BOOK OF ANGELS is my favorite source of information on the subject of angels, because it contains the most dazzling array of myths and stories about angels one could ever hope to find in one book. I am equally delighted with its thrilling personal accounts of the way human poets, mystics and saints (such as Blake, Dante, Dostoyevski, Goethe, Milton, Poe, Rilke, Shakespeare and Swedenborg) have interacted with angels throughout history. Beautiful illustrations and quotes appear on almost every page, such as this lovely one from Saint Augustine, "Every visible thing in this world is put in the charge of an angel."

Sophy Burnham has written a book that truly got me in touch with God & the spiritual side of my life. I love this book and anyone who is on their path of spirituality, this book is a good start. Not only does she talk about angels, she gives you other taste's of religions, and how to pray. I have been giving this book to people I know who are searching for some comfort and understanding in their lives and hope this would be a good start. Easy read.
