Description-
  • Using the format of Life's Little Instruction Book, Eileen Freeman has put together a wise and wonderful collection of passages from the bible paired with her own observations. Each of the 120 pages has one of Eileen's observations coupled with a biblical quote:

    "Guardian angels never take vacation." Eileen Freeman
    "He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep." Psalm 121:3-4

    "Our angels are like fitness trainers; they remind us that jumping to conclusions is not a useful exercise." Eileen Freeman
    "Do not judge by appearances, but judge what is right." John 7:24

    "Angels' priorities are always ordered right--God first, everything else second." Eileen Freeman
    "Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly being, ascribe to the Lord the glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name; worship the Lord in holy splendor." Psalm 29:1-2

    "Angels rarely appear, it's because we all too often mistake the medium for the Message." Eileen Freeman
    "Then I fell down at (the angel's) feet to worship him, but he said to me, 'You must not do that! I am a fellow servant with you and your comrades who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God!" Revelation 19:10

Excerpts-
  • From the book
    Introduction

    Jesus reminded us that the Kingdom of heaven is all around us -- in our very midst, in fact -- so is it any wonder that we are surrounded by angels, God's unseen messengers? These wise and loving creatures have been a part of our lives since the earth was created, and are known to Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and other world religions. The scriptures tell us that angels are immortal spirits created by God as servants of the divine and guardians of the earth and all who dwell on it.

    I have always believed in angels. When I was a child of five, God sent my angel into my life to comfort me after the death of my grandmother, and to reassure me that she was with God and that I need not fear anything in life. I have always tried to live that message.

    That visitation awakened in me a hunger to find out more about the loving God who took pity on my grief and sent me such exquisite comfort. I wanted to learn all I could about the messengers and servants of God. I earned a B.A. in Comparative Religions from Barnard College, and an M.A. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame while pursuing my quest.

    I now head The AngelWatch Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization whose purpose is to search out evidence of angelic activity on earth and to disseminate information about angels. I publish AngelWatch, a bi-monthly magazine about angels that includes first-person accounts of angelic visitations, reviews of new books, and both scholarly and popular articles on angels. For more information about the work of The AngelWatch Foundation, please write to me at: AngelWatch, P.O. Box 1397, Mountainside, New Jersey 07092 U.S.A., enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope.

    A word about the scripture texts used in this book: The quotes below each angelic "instruction" are not "proof texts" in the usual sense of the word. Rather, they are designed to provide a context within which we can see how God's angels operate on earth. Sometimes neither the "instruction" nor the relevant scripture mentions angels at all. Nonetheless, issues like forgiveness, love of neighbor, turning from evil, and living in the light of God are all matters of intense interest to our guardian angels.

    In the end, we must realize that the angels have no instructions of their own to offer us. Like pure prisms, they simply refract for us a small portion of the infinitely faceted crystal that is God. Whatever comes from an angel came first from God, who delights in providing us with wonders at every step of our journey Home. May we "run with perseverance the race that is set before us," holding hands with the angels and our brothers and sisters, and always looking to Jesus, "the pioneer and perfecter of our faith."
