Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I am going to send an angel in front of you,

to guard you on the way.

Exodus 23:20 NRSV

When Joan Wester Anderson wrote Where Angels Walk, millions of readers were captivated by her inspiring

collection of true stories of angelic intervention. The book  remained on the New York Times Best-Seller List for over a year.

In the Arms of Angels is Anderson’s newest collection of mysterious and heart-stirring stories of heavenly guardians. From the harrowing account of a World Trade Center survivor to a miraculous rescue during the first Gulf War, these powerful stories invite us to take another look at the “coincidences” in our lives—to open our eyes to the angels who walk beside us.

“In times of uncertainty, we long to be reminded that, as Joan Wester Anderson writes, ‘We are not alone.’”

—Rev. Timothy Jones, author, The Art of Prayer, Workday Prayers, and Celebration of Angels

“In the Arms of Angels is a true gem, a book to be treasured.”

—Jessie Frees, radio host, WMTR/WWTR New Jersey

Synopsis:

Extraordinary stories of angelic encounters abound, and best-selling author Joan Wester Anderson brings together some of the most compelling true stories from the past five years in In the Arms of Angels. From the harrowing account of a World Trade Center survivor's angelic encounter to the heartrending tale of a little boy who survives a car crash, these stories illustrate how angels are at work in the world today, encouraging us to see "coincidences" in our lives as God-ordained events.

Synopsis:

In the Arms of Angels brings together some of the most compelling true stories of angelic appearances in the lives of ordinary people. These wonderful and extraordinary accounts light up the pages, bringing comfort and renewed faith to everyone who reads them.

Synopsis:

Extraordinary stories of angelic appearances in the lives of ordinary people abound. Author, Joan Wester Anderson brings together some of the most compelling true stories from the past five years in her latest collection, In the Arms of Angels. Whether they center on seemingly mundane events or national tragedies, the stories in this book reveal that angels accompany humans on their daily journeys and influence their lives. In a time when "nearly every institution in which we have placed our trust has faltered and collapsed," these striking stories of heavenly intervention provide a glimmer of hope and a glimpse of eternity. From the harrowing account of a World Trade Center survivor's angelic encounter to the heartrending tale of a little boy who survives a car crash, the stories illustrate how angels are working in the world today. They encourage readers to reflect on the "coincidences" of their lives and see them with new eyes. In the Arms of Angels is simple evidence that, as God promised, angels intervene in human lives to offer guidance, aid, and consolation.
