Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This book is indeed for women, if by women one means white, American, middle-class, conservative Christian mothers. But there's little reason to quibble; such women are exactly Kingsbury's target audience, and few of them will be disappointed by these stories of angels, medical miracles and mothers who really, really love their kids (the only exception being a "childless by choice" woman who really, really loves her house). While Kingsbury claims that these stories are true (there's no documentation or opportunity to corroborate this), she has clearly taken liberties with the dialogue; the conversations between doctors and anguished parents are straight out of 1960s-era medical dramas. The majority of the stories fit a pretty old chestnut of a formula: tragedy happens, the doctor says there's no hope, God intervenes (often in the form of an angel), the patient miraculously gets better, then the doctor shakes his head in disbelief, says that the recovery is inexplicable and admits that he was wrong. In more than one case, the wrong medical advice is, not surprisingly, to abort a gravely ill fetus. Two later chapters are a bit more compelling in that the sick person indeed dies, and the miracle is the good that comes from that death. There's little doubt that Kingsbury's subjects had astonishing experiences, but the nuance, texture and reality of those experiences are lost in the simplistic telling. Luis Palau's It's a God Thing packs the emotional punch Kingsbury is going for, but with considerably less treacle.

Well, it is Karen Kingsbury....what more can I say!!!
If you haven't read her works, let me just ask.....WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!! I started reading her books a year ago and have devoured 20+ books since then. And I am the worlds slowest reader....it usually takes me months to read a book, and I fly through Karen's books!!

So this book is just simply a JOY to read. Heartwarming and beautiful, Inspiring and Uplifting!!! A great place to start before you dive into her fiction!!

Be Blessed and enjoy this amazong author!!!

I believe in Angels May 23 2014
By Kita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Bible says that angels are ministering spirits here to help those who are heirs of the kingdom of God. If the Bible ( god's words) says it , it is true. Therefore we do have angels watching over us and we are blessed for it. I would recommend this book to anyone. It gives us prof f that we are never alone.
