Examining angels as metaphors—not only of God reaching out to humankind but also of humankind reaching out to God—this comprehensive study illuminates the philosophical, psychological, and spiritual implications of angels, both heavenly and fallen, for readers and seekers of every faith or none. It gives both an overview of angels in various religious traditions, and an explanation of angels as expressions of human spiritual awareness, and shows that the fascination with winged spirits is universal. Offering an accessible history of angels, an exploration of the contemporary implications of angelology, and a means to make sense of angels and the divine in life, this stunning addition to angelic studies is a beautiful invitation to embrace the angelic in the everyday.
