In this intriguing book, you will explore the origin and nature of angels, where they dwell, what they do, and how they relate to humanity.

“This is the best book available on angels – a wildly popular topic that has long deserved the attention of a thoughtful and talented writer like Vinita Hampton Wright. She brings a poet’s skill, a scholar’s care, and a believer’s heart to the heavenly companions whose presence we might sense, but may know little about.”
-          James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints
 
“Vinita Hampton Wright has done a wonderful job with a very complex issue: trying to bring Jews, Christians, and Muslims together.”
-          Laleh Bakhitar, Ph.D.
