Supernatural beings—both the good and bad—fascinate us because they are surrounded by mystery. What do they look like? Are they sent to protect us? Are they even real, and should we be afraid? It turns out God has already answered our questions about angels and their fallen counterparts, demons—we just have to open the Bible. In this book, every scriptural reference to angels and demons has been carefully collected and organized. When necessary, brief but clear explanations are provided, using insights gathered from trustworthy commentaries. There’s plenty to discover in Scripture; let the Word of God quench your curiosity about angels and rest your fears about demons.
