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

– how guardian angels help us resist evil, temptation, and the devil;

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.
