The Bible is full of passages about angels who are sent to accomplish God’s will. Angels speak for God, direct the course of nations, and protect God’s people. They worship God and deliver God’s judgment. In Angels in the Bible, George Smiga examines some of the Bible’s most fascinating passages about angels, exploring their ministry on God’s behalf and drawing insights for our own spiritual lives. Because angels are mediators of God’s presence and action, studying angels is studying God. Commentary, study and reflection questions, prayers, and access to online lectures are included. 6 lessons.

"Our Bible study group just finished Angels in the Bible and wanted to let you know how much we have cherished this study. Fr. Smiga has made his biblical scholarship completely accessible, and his video lectures have been so helpful. We have thrashed out our former understandings about angels, become acquainted with many scriptural angelic references, and considered implications in our daily lives. We found the author’s “Contemporary Relevance” sections very insightful. Kudos to all involved! "

Angels in the Bible is reader-friendly and relatable. The author opened my eyes to topics about angels that I never thought of, and the Contemporary Relevance sections were very helpful. I highly recommend this study!”

“We see and hear of angels frequently in pictures, churches, and books, but we don’t have very much information about them. Fr. George Smiga changed that in Angels in the Bible, covering the angels, their roles, their place in the Bible and in church history. Very beautifully done.”
Nancy Vinsko, St. Joseph Catholic Church, Richardson, Texas

"Angels in the Bible is comprehensive, lucid, and accessible to anyone interested in the place of angels in one’s relationship with God. As a scholar, Fr. George Smiga combines biblical exegesis, historical information, and scholarly opinions as he engages a variety of materials on angels. As a pastor, he draws the reader into personal knowledge of one’s faith experience of angels and God in the format of Little Rock Scripture Study. This is a must read on angels."
Fr. Ferdinand Okorie, CMF, Catholic Theological Union

"Few biblical topics are more fascinating for Christians than the traditional belief in angels. Skilled as both a recognized biblical scholar and a thoughtful pastor, George Smiga takes the reader on a marvelous tour of the many roles angels play in the Bible, a range reflecting the dimensions of God’s own abiding presence in human life. Set in the helpful format of a Little Rock Scripture Study, this is truly an attractive and fully accessible resource."
Fr. Donald Senior, CP, General Editor of The Bible Today and President Emeritus of Catholic Theological Union
