Angels: Ministers of Grace

MacGregor, Geddes

 The author is an eminent theologian and philosopher. In this work he examines the role angels have played in literature, music, mythology, art, and the Bible. He argues that the presence of angels should be recognized as an aspect of religious experience. There are two parts: The first is "Angels in Fable and in Faith" (12 chapters); the second is "Angels as an Evolutionary Possibility" (6 chapters). Chapter 16 is entitled "Paranormal Experiences such as Communication with the Departed." In it he classifies angels as an aspect of paranormal experience, and proposes that parapsychology is central to our understanding of angels. He suggests that angels are superior "beings who have progressed further in evolutionary development than we" (pp. 170-171) and he proposes that the methods of psychical research would be helpful in aiding us to detect the presence and intention of angels who are calling upon us.
