Angels played a big part in the birth of Christ and we often think and wonder about them.  What does the Bible say about the role of Angels in our world?  “All About Angels,” by A.S.Joppie covers Biblical truths about angels.  “In the Arms of Angels” by Joan Wester Anderson is a collection of mysterious and heart-stirring stories of heavenly guardians as told by the people who saw them.  You can find these books in the Theology / Doctrine section of our library.
