Angels & Devils - Joan Carroll Cruz
Author: Joan Carroll Cruz
Publisher: Tan Books and Publishers, Inc.
Pages: 301 pp
This has to be the most thorough book about the Angels yet written in modern times. Here, the best-selling author Joan Carroll Cruz expounds upon the traditional definitions and delineations of the Angels, asking and answering virtually every conceivable question about them: E.g., what are they, how do we know they exist, when were they created, do they really have wings, do they know the future, do they know our thoughts, do they have names, do they have emotions, do they converse with each other, their speed, their assignments, how do we know we have Guardian Angels, are they appointed at conception or birth or Baptism, do non-Christians have Guardian Angels, etc. Then after answering all these questions (and many more!) about the Angels, the author does the same with regard to the devils.
The salient quality about this book is that the author supports her answers with scores of stories from the Saints and holy people regarding the Angels and devils, exemplifying her answers with absorbing real-life episodes.
After considering the devils, Mrs. Cruz enters a discussion on Masonry, Satanism, Witchcraft, the Occult, the New Age, Scientology, Psychics, Astrology, Tarot Cards, Crystal Balls, Reincarnation, Transcendental Meditation, Mind control, automatic writing, Ouija boards, etc.
Easy to read, Angels and Devils covers a host of topics in an absorbing and informative manner. Among the many recent books about Angels, this has to be one of the very best, if not the very best yet. And it definitely destined to be another Mrs. Cruz bestseller! Imprimatur, Illustrated.
