As the world descends in to ever increasing chaos, many take comfort from the idea that there is the presence of divine beings who offer through subtle interaction their protection, comfort and help.This little book - just popping it into one's pocket or under one's pillow in itself makes one feel somehow 'protected', provides an amazing 'identikit' of the essential qualities and attributes of an angel.Each chapter looks at one of eight specific aspects of an angel - personality, intellect, face, brain, mind, heart, form, life. In delightful form of just one or two short sentences per page (set out almost as if one were reading poetry), we are pulled in to the disarming simplicity of the world of angels.Lines are easily remembered, and as such stay with us and uplift our ordinary lives, just as angels do. For instance, 'Without God - an angel's face is nothing'; 'The mind of an angel makes its own body glow and those of others also, however tired and ill they may be'; 'The heart of an angel is a heart trusted by God not to hurt'.In addition, the book begins with a general chapter on angels, of similar layout and composition; 'An angel is a person with principles, who moves by the spirit, not the letter of the law. He sees the motive not the move; sees the heart not the words.'If the reader feels by the time of reaching the end of this lovely little book that it is possible for every human being to become an angel, then it fulfils its greater purpose: for truly there is an angel within all of us, ready to be revealed.
