All About The Angels
by Fr Paul O'Sullivan
Tan Books - Paperback
All About the Angels is a charming book that shows how the Angels have assisted people innumerable times in the past and how they continue to help us today-and how they would do even more than they do, if we would only ask them. Catholic Tradition teaches that God has given each of us a special Guardian Angel from the moment of our birth. In this book Fr. O'Sullivan explains that this Angel's great love for us can only be compared to that of a mother. Further, he shows how, with all their power and magnificence, the Angels are also immensely kind, faithful and generous-and actually even grateful for our own poor love, repaying us many times over for our little acts of love toward them. With their superior intelligence and power, they are willing and able to prevent accidents, to comfort us, to defend us from the attacks of the devil and to help us in our spiritual and temporal affairs.

In this fascinating little book, Fr. O'Sullivan tells stories about St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael, plus stories of the Angels and St. Gemma, St. Agnes, St. Frances of Rome, St. Dominic, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Rose of Lima, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Isidore the Farmer, St. Francis of Assisi, the children of Fatima, and many others, both famous and obscure, plus the wonderful story of St. John Bosco's mysterious dog.

All About the Angels is a book uniquely conceived to open our eyes to the invisible world of the blessed spirits all around us, our powerful, holy friends who love us and humbly desire to guide us and assist us daily in countless ways-if we will only acknowledge their presence and call upon them.

The Angels
by Fr Pascal Parente
Tan Books - Paperback
Here is the Church's traditional teaching about the Angels. Fr. Pascal Parente draws from the best Catholic sources--Sacred Scripture, the Fathers and Doctors of the Church (especially St. Thomas Aquinas), other holy writers and the official pronouncements of the Church--to bring together into one book just about everything that is known for sure about the blessed spirits.

Fr. Parente describes the Angels' creation, their test, and the fall of Lucifer and his minions; then he describes their intelligence and free will, their language, powers and movements; plus, he discusses how many there are, what they do and Saints to whom they have appeared. He sets forth the Catholic tradition on the various hierarchies and the Nine Choirs of Angels, the famous Archangels - St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael - and on Guardian Angels, showing there are Guardian Angels of individuals, of churches of dioceses, of nations, etc. Finally, he gives the history of devotion to the holy Angels.

Especially today - with the current great resurgence of interest in the Angels - is this present book a needed aid to distinguish the true from the false and the known from the unknown. The Angels, by Fr. Pascal Parente, is a certain guide through the unseen and holy world of the angelic spirits - a book that will truly instruct, inspire and enthrall.

Angels (and Demons): What Do We Really Know About Them?
by Peter Kreeft
Ignatius Press - Paperback
In response to actual questions many people have asked him about angels and demons, well-known author and philosophy professor Peter Kreeft separates fact from fantasy and myth from reality as he answers 100 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 the numerous books today on what we know about these mysterious spirits.

Drawing on the Bible, traditional Church teaching and St. Thomas Aquinas, Kreeft gives straight, clear answers to the perennial and philosophical questions asked about angels and demons throughout time. In his typical lucid, profound and sometimes humorous style, Kreeft answers such questions as "What are angels made of?", "How do angels communicate with God?", "How do angels communicate with us?", "Do demons, or devils, or evil spirits really exist?" and many more. Includes angel art.

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., is a professor of philosophy at Boston College. He is a regular contributor to several Catholic publications, is in wide demand as a speaker at conferences, and is the author of over 20 books including Back to Virtue, Heaven the Heart's Deepest Longing and Fundamentals of the Faith.

Angels and Devils
by Joan Carroll Cruz
TAN Books - Paperback
Angels and Devils has to be the most thorough book about the Angels yet written in modern times. Here, the best-selling author, Joan Carroll Cruz expounds upon the traditional definitions and delineations of the Angels, asking and answering virtually every conceivable question about them: E.g., what are they, how do we know they exist, when were they created, do they really have wings, do they know the future, do they know our thoughts, do they have names, do they have emotions, do they converse with each other, how fast do they travel, what are their assignments, how do we know we have Guardian Angels, are they appointed at conception or birth or Baptism, do non-Christians have Guardian Angels, and so forth. Then, after answering all these questions about the Angels, and many more besides, she does the same with regard to the devils.

The salient quality of this book is that the author supports her answers with scores and scores of stories from the lives of the Saints and holy people regarding the Angels and devils, exemplifying her answers with absorbing real-life episodes.

After considering the devils, she enters a discussion on Masonry, Satanism, Witchcraft, the Occult, the New Age, Scientology, Psychics, Astrology, Tarot Cards, Crystal Balls, Reincarnation, Transcendental Meditation, Mind Control, Automatic Writing, Ouija Boards, and so forth.

Easy to read, Angels and Devils covers a host of topics in an absorbing and informative manner. Among the many recent books about Angels, this has to be one of the very best, if not the very best. And it is definitely destined to be another Mrs. Cruz bestseller!
