Megan McKenna focuses her spiritual ken in this book on the messengers of God who have played such important roles in Hebrew and Christian scriptures. She writes about Michael, the protector; Gabriel, archangel of truth; Raphael, companion angel; and Uriel, archangel of death and conversion. At one point McKenna calls angels "mysteries of God's imagination." As usual, the author spices up this material with stories from many different religious traditions. McKenna concludes that the guardian angels of the poor, the dispossessed, and the persecuted are deeply appreciated. This is one book on angels that refreshingly stays grounded on earth.
A refreshing book focusing on the messengers of God who have played important roles in Hebrew and Christian scriptures.
