    Alrighty! “Angels: An Endangered Species”. I got this book to help with the research for my work in progress, and read it more for research purposes than simple enjoyment. I see some reviews are criticizing the lack of references, such as after quotes. That… is actually a good point. I don’t see any footnotes or bibliography or sources section, so if you’re doing a research project like me and see a quote from a poem you really want to delve deeper into, it’s disappointing that there [...]

    This book does not have an index, which is frustrating for reference purposes. The author has put together a great deal of information, but seems to lack insight into anything other than the mainstream strains of religion. For instance, his understanding of Gnosticism is very poor indeed. The Gnostics cannot be said to have beliefs that can be put into neat little boxes, as the author has attempted to do. Rather, they were very diverse groups whose range in ideas were quite often at odds with ea [...]

    I found it rather difficult to get my arms around this book. Unfortunately, every positive thing I can say about this book -- and there were quite a few things to say in that sense -- must be qualified, and there were also several out and out negatives that left me rather wincing. Though in all candor I am simply going to limit this review to two or three things that struck me the most. Apologies at the brevity.First, this volume works quite well as a "coffee table" type book. The artwork chosen [...]

    I love the artwork in this book but am totally put off by the facts listed within. It doesn't list one reference for any of the facts. While I am gnostic and I love and agree with some of them, I have to be able to research them and read the original authors. At least give me an idea where your quotes come from. This book doesn't do that and for that reason I had to give it one star. The artwork is fantastic though.

    An exquisitely illustrated guide to angels that I obsessed over as a child. It's a strange mix of scholarly & New Age, and as an adult, I see it with a more critical eye (the part on aliens is weird). But I learned a lot from it (about St. Teresa of Avila, for example, and the difference between seraphim, cherubim, & thrones). Recommended for those interested in angels & Judeo-Christian art.

    Detailed historical accounts of angels throughout the centuries along with the hierarchy. An interesting read to add to anyone's collection

    Charts the evolution of the angel in full color, from the kerrubim of Mesopotamia through to the Chariots of the Gods. Truly beautiful art, well-researched. A good time was had by all

    An encyclopedic--but whimsical--look at angels and their classifications. The final chapter asks the intriguing question: what we call UFOs now, did they call angels then?

    Great reference book about angels and the mythology surrounding them.

    If you are looking for an inspirational, uplifting, spiritual book about angels, this book is not for you. As some of the reviews have said, this book is for research and for one who is interested in medieval and prehistoric thinking of angels and demons. As one who is interested in angels, I made the most of it and focused on parts that were not only interesting, but also not difficult to understand. Some interesting tidbits and questions after reading: The Chronicles of Enoch are constantly be [...]
