That's why I purchased the book; the title intrigued me. Working with angels sounded like a good thing to do. I wanted to know more about this interesting concept. I thought that angels just kind of showed up when things were really, really desperate.
I sometimes wondered if kind strangers were angels. I thought that such speculation as this was open-minded and rare. A full volume of angelic stories later, I see now that my view was actually quite limited. There is a lot more to angels than most of us understand.
I am not disappointed that my curiosity (and the Holy Spirit) led me to this thought-provoking and faith-building book. Angel stories have recently filled bookstore shelves and movies theaters.
Face it. Angels are cool, and people want to believe in them. They are portrayed as spiritual superheroes, and do, in fact, have supernatural powers. They come by their reputation honestly.
Angels come by their reputation honestly.
Kevin Basconi takes our Sunday School-imparted understanding of angels to a new and personal level. His dramatic conversion to Christianity as an adult was followed quickly by accelerated spiritual growth, which involved many supernatural events. As a young Christian, he received an introduction to four personally-assigned angels to work with him in his ministry. That is the point of this book; to demonstrate and teach just how to work with angels. They are heavenly messengers and helpers, and they are ready and available to us.
You mean that God has this for each of us? Yes, if we press in and desire to work in holy cooperation with these eager, gifted, and highly diverse heavenly beings.
Angels have unique and specific gifts and tasks. They have names and purposes. They have emotions and are intensely devoted to their King. The book’s chapters cover subjects like praise and worship and angels, angels and healing, and the gift of discernment and angels.
The stories are amazing and inspiring. You mean that God has this for each of us? Yes, if we press in and desire to work in holy cooperation with these eager, gifted, and highly diverse heavenly beings. This is a clear case of ignorance not being bliss. Regarding angels, ignorance is missing out, in potentially epic proportions.
God constantly amazes me with new things. I knew about angels, but I really did not know about angels! This books has opened up a whole new dimension to me, literally! Praise God!
And there’s much more; Kevin Basconi has actually written many books on angels. This book is certainly a great place to start. I have not looked at my current challenges and prayer requests the same way since reading this book. My prayers have changed. I am understanding that when we cry “help” to our loving Father, He actually may intend to send us someone very special to help us! There is work to be done for His Kingdom, and we are not alone!
