Joe L. Wheeler, Ph.D., is author of a new book, My Favorite Angel Stories (Pacific Press Publishing Association, November 13, 2013). This is Wheeler’s 83rd book (and 68th anthology).

Only once before has Wheeler compiled a collection of angel stories. It was Stories of Angels Seen and Unseen (Guideposts Books, 1997); the same pool of stories was restructured under the title The Wings of God (WaterBrook/Random House, 2000). Thus sixteen years separate the two collections.

Wheeler’s Introduction: “Is There a Difference Between Biblical and New Age Angel Stories” ought to be most significant to Christian readers who are unaware that all biblical angels are portrayed as being masculine.  Even Billy Graham has confirmed this in his angel-related research. You will note that Pacific Press editors commissioned artist Marcus Mashburn to paint for this cover an angel who is clearly masculine.

Also, Wheeler points out in his Introduction other fascinating differentiating factors between Biblical and New Age angel story portrayals.

The book features a fascinating and spiritually uplifting collection of angel stories new as well as old. They are taken from the archives of a number of Christian faiths, for God’s angels minister to all His children, wherever they may reside, or in whatever time-period they may live.
