Publisher Comments:

The perfect gift for the Angels in your life. Beautiful fabric binding with gold filigree. A book to be treasured forever.

Personal protectors…divine messengers…pure spirit…seraphim and cherubim…agents of God. We all have a notion of what angles are and what they should look like. Weve seen angels portrayed in paintings, sculpture, movies, and TV. But even with hundreds of books and TV shows on angels, is there something about them weve missed?

The Secret Strength of Angels is about the remarkable qualities that angels possess and what we humans can do to emulate them in our own lives here on earth. Whats secret about these virtues is not so much what these angel strengths are, but the idea that we can penetrate the shroud of mystery that surrounds them and identify very specific attributes-seven in particular-that we can make a part of our own personalities once we understand and appreciate them.

This may come as a surprise to some. Even those of us who do believe in angels have traditionally thought of them as belonging to another realm, pure spirit, sometimes impish, sometimes heroic, agents of God, our personal protectors. We have been encouraged to model ourselves after elders deserving of respect, remarkable figures in history, saints. But this may be the first time that anyone has considered angels themselves as models for human behavior.

The Secret Strength of Angels reminds us that it is not what angels are that is important, but rather what they do. Angels travel the world protecting people, performing altruistic acts, and making life better for those around them. In fact, there are seven specific strengths that angels exhibit, which Dr. Flach reveals:

■ The freedom to choose

■ The power of knowing

■ Love and generosity

■ Communicating

■ A mission to guide and protect

■ Healing and helping

■ A mission to become a more spiritual person

Written with quiet confidence and authority, The Secret Strength of Angels provides a unique guide to confronting the day to day in the healthiest manner possible. Whether it helps you heal old wounds and change your behavior, or merely confirms what you already know, The Secret Strength of Angels is thought-provoking and interesting, and contains a message that can appeal to anyone.

For every Angel on Earth.

Synopsis:

In this remarkable and inspiring work, Dr. Flach describes the very specific attributes of angels that humans would do well to emulate, not just for their place in the hereafter but to lead happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives while on Earth.
