Product Description

From the Back Cover

In response to actual questions many people have asked him about angels & demons, well-known author and philosophy professor Peter Kreeft separates fact from fantasy and myth from reality as he answers 101 common questions about these spiritual beings. Based on a very popular college course he teaches on this subject, this book responds to the incredible amount of interest in angelic beings and attempts to clear up some of the misinformation abounding in numerous books today on what we really know about these mysterious spirits.

Format: Paperback
I picked up this book quite at random a few days ago in the bookstore and didn't put it down until I finished it. Many times, the popular books on angels out there are made up of (uneducated) guesses or what feels good, but Kreeft uses reason, Church tradition and other philosophers (mostly Aquinas), in addition to the Bible, to support his answers about angels. It's tough to wade through all the pop-theology books on angels in stores and I highly recommend this as one of the few quality gems that makes a lot of sense. Truly a refreshing, intelligent, and thought-provoking read.

Format: Paperback
In light of the recent angel fad, the numerous angel books, and television shows and motion pictures about angels it can be hard to know what is really known about angels.
Peter Kreeft tries to shed some light on this subject with this book. Drawing on the Bible, traditional Church teaching, and the Church Fathers Kreeft provides straight, clear answers to such questions as: "How do angels communicate with God?", "How do angels communicate with us?", and "Do demons really exist?"
The book is fast, and at times fun, reading.

I enjoyed reading this book very much. Kreeft writes with a very logical approach while at the same time being very funny. He relies heavily on Thomistic metaphysics, which is fine, but at the same time could have used more clarification. Also, he did not address more controversial issues such as knowing your angel's name and "commanding" your guardian angels. However, I would still recommend this book as solid introduction to angels.

Authoritative and based on solid theological ground.
This book is the best modern introduction on angels and spirits. It is full of facts, citations, illustrations and lot of youthfull humor. I enjoyed it very much and in particular the appendix about the phenomenon of angelism in our society. A must read for all interested in theology, spirits and angels.

Format: Paperback
Using his typical blend of theology, philosophy, scripture and good sense, Kreeft crafts an engaging summary of what we know about angels and demons. It's not meant to be a compelling story, but an exploration in truth about our spiritual friends and enemies. Good food for thought!
