Lifted by Angels~ a book review

Lifted by Angels~by Joel J. Miller

A literary account of angels that appear in biblical text that reads much like a seminary text book. The author uses reference from early Christian writings and text such as the books of Tobit and the Wisdom of Solomon. He quotes the Old Testament, and different translations of Septuagint and Masoretic text.
Angels are described as they appear during certain events in the Bible, such as angels falling from grace, angels that helped Christ, and angels as they appear in the Book of Revelation.
Was it interesting? Maybe, if you are a Biblical scholar, but for a general reader, I must say no. I found it quite boring. Maybe it was too complicated and over my head, so I can’t say that some may not find it of value to read. For the average reader, I cannot recommend.
I received this book from BookSneeze in exchange for my honest review.
