Angels By My Side by Betty Malz

I have so many books to read...and so little time this summer to read them.  I finally finished this book today.

The author, Betty Malz, starts the book with this quote, “This book is dedicated to bringing hope to the helpless and offering help to the fearful.”  I knew from that quote that this book was going to have my full attention.  I was definitely not disappointed!

I have always been fascinated with the topic of angels, but I had never taken the time to research them.  I was excited to see that Betty Malz did that research for me in this book!  

She wrote about different occasion in the Bible where angels appeared. You will be amazed about how many times that God has sent His angels.   Protecting angels, rescuing angels and messenger angels all played any important part of the scriptures.  Until I read this book, I hadn't given much thought to the different roles and purposes that angels have. 

Throughout the book, the author writes about the real life experiences of many different people who have been visited by angels.  I must admit there were a few that I had a hard time believing.  However, when I considered the power of God, I realized that I have no reason to doubt the power of the Almighty.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is interested in learning more about angels.

Disclosure:   Chosen Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.  All opinions expressed are my own.
