Christopher loaned this to someone and never got it back. I used to drag it out when watching movies that had angels in them to see if they were using a Biblical reference or if they'd just made the character up. ( )

I used to carry this book around with me. It's just endlessly pleasing. A great reference book. ( )

Growing up Protestant I didn't know much about angels. Who knew they were like smartphone apps of the heavens? Seriously, there's an angel for practically anything and everything. I really enjoyed this book and found it an incredible resource as I wrote an angel related original fiction last year. Comprehensive and easy to use, it was useful as a starting point to help me do further research certain characters. I think anyone who's interested in the supernatural will find this a handy addition to their collection. ( )

Alphabetical listing of angels named in literature and Scripture, including the fallen angels. Draws from the Koran, cabalistic writings, poetry, extracanonical sources such as the Books of Enoch, and many others. Excellent reference. ( )

This is my go-to source whenever I'm writing something with a Judeo-Christian slant. ( )

Introduction:  Some years ago when I started "collecting" angels as a literary diversion, it was certainly with no thought of serving as their archivist, biographer, and finally as their lexicographer.
