This audiobook explores the relationship between people and angels through the eyes of the early church.

Heaven is closer than we realize. Its boundaries overlap our own, and angels move in and out of our porous present, this moment that seems to us so solid and concrete. If that reality seems dim to us now, it beamed for the early Christians. Through their writings, sermons, songs, and art, the ancient faithful confessed a powerful and vivid belief that angels help carry us on our journey to God.

Rooted in the scripture and following this ancient understanding, Lifted by Angels reveals:

– the role that angels play in the lives of people and in God’s plan of salvation;
– the different ranks and functions of angels;
– how Satan and his demons fell from grace and plagued humans;
– the functions of guardian angels and how God assigns them to fit our personal needs;
– how guardian angels help us resist evil, temptation, and the devil;
– the way angels join with us in our prayers, even adding their own to ours; and
– the service angels provide in worship.

Featuring examples of angels in ancient icons and frescoes and supported by extensive research on the early church and its pastors, poets, theologians, and artists, Lifted by Angels answers universal curiosity about angels and the unseen world, leaving listeners inspired and hopeful about the nearness of God.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A beautifully written study on the unique relationship between people and angels. I found it fascinating, challenging, and inspiring. Highly recommended.”

    Sheila Walsh, author of God Loves Broken People

  • “There is an unseen spiritual world with which we humans have to deal, and Joel Miller is a fascinating and skilled guide into this invisible reality. Lifted by Angels will elevate your understanding of angels and their practical role in Christian spirituality.”

    Todd D. Hunter, Anglican bishop; past president, Vineyard Churches USA; author of Our Favorite Sins

  • “We are mostly unaware of angels’ presence in our midst and their influence on our lives. What a shame! Thank God for Joel J. Miller’s Lifted by Angels, a reminder of the role that our ‘cousins’ play in guiding us and of their exalted place in creation.”

    Brad Miner, senior editor, The Catholic Thing; senior fellow, Faith & Reason Institute

  • “If we sometimes feel alone in our spiritual struggles, it might be because we have lost touch of what Christians of old knew about the unseen angels of God. In Lifted by Angels Miller uses scripture, Christian art, early church writings, and tradition to lift the veil between the earthly and spiritual realms. He lifts it ever so slightly, not in speculation, but just enough for us to catch a memorable glimpse of those heavenly hosts whom God has sent to comfort and aid us on our journey home.”

    James M. Kushiner, executive director, Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity
