Angels: A Very Short Introduction

Angels: A Very Short Introduction

David Albert Jones


during this vigorous and concise Very brief Introduction, David Albert Jones offers a crisp, broad-ranging survey of angels in theology, philosophy, and pop culture. targeting Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, he examines how angels were imagined and defined in addition to why they proceed to captivate us. Jones explores the classical discussion--what they're made up of, after they got here to be, and the way many there are. He names the archangels, surveys different hierarchies, and examines how they've got replaced over the years. He appears to be like at why the assumption of angels is still so powerful in smooth tradition, even between non-believers.
