A sweet gift for someone going through a hard time.
Known by numerous different names, angels appear in many cultures and religious traditions. No matter how the concept of an angel exists in a person’s mind, the very idea that there are higher beings offering love and guidance can bring about feelings of hope and comfort. As such, The Little Book of Angels is a wonderful gift for someone struggling with life’s lemons.
This may be a little book, but author Lisa Dyer fits a wealth of knowledge inside. She teaches about the hierarchy of angels and the different characteristics of specific figures, as well as how to connect with them in times of need. As mentioned, angels are relevant in several different global traditions, from Christianity to Zoroastrianism. Dyer acknowledges the different interpretations of angels without pushing the idea that any one portrayal is the correct one.
After the chapters on the hierarchy of angels, the Archangels, your guardian angel, and angel powers, Dyer provides information on how to call upon angels. The final chapter is filled with blessings and invocations that may be used to alleviate common problems, such as overcoming fear and having a peaceful sleep. Again, whether or not a reader believes that these invocations will work, it can bring comfort just to utter them.
The information within is delivered in bite-sized chunks but is still comprehensive. Though this book is an introduction, it covers a lot of ground. Especially for those who are completely new to the subject of angels, it’s a thoroughly satisfying read. That said, readers who are already familiar with the idea of angelic beings may also find this to be a wonderful book. It’s certainly useful to have all the information in one concise place!
To help solidify the reader’s understanding of the concepts within, there are also quotes about angels interwoven between the chapters. Additionally, the book is presented beautifully, with a matte hardback cover and sweet, simple graphics.
Whether you’re aa spiritual person, looking for a source of inspiration, or just want to feel like someone out there has your back, The Little Book of Angels is one to add to your collection.
