About-

Recent years have brought an unexpected revival of popular interest in angels. Books professing to draw back the curtain on the unseen angelic world filled entire bookstore shelves. Here, as if to mock the cold universe of modernity, were the stories of numerous and warm encounters with angelic beings.

But who are angels, and what is their nature and purpose in the biblical scheme of things? Are the biblical stories to be taken literally or symbolically, or should they be relegated to another day and age? How have the great theologians of the church regarded the angels? And most important, what are the nature and role of angels in God's cosmos and his redemptive plan?

Stephen Noll answers these questions in this detailed exploration of angels in the tapestry of Scripture. Here is a biblical-theological study of angels, Satan and the powers that fills a significant gap and will command the attention of serious students of scripture.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Contemporary Christian attitudes to angels seem to veer between complete skepticism and credulity verging on obsession. Stephen Noll, with well-informed biblical scholarship and a pleasantly readable style, puts angels back in their biblical place in the world."

Richard J. Bauckham, University of St. Andrews, Scotland


"Stephen Noll has written the book about angels that I have wanted to read--and more. The book contains not only solid biblical research but also historical and theological reflection and literary references. . . . Clearly written and thoroughly thought through, this book should be a standard on the topic for years to come."

Peter H. Davids, Schloss Mittersill Study Center, Austria
