Item description for Angels Among Us (Eerdmans Books For Young Readers) by Leena Lane & Elena Baboni...

Retells twelve stories from the Bible, each of which involves an angel.

Publishers Description

The Bible is full of stories of angels. Some bring messages revealing God's purposes, others provide strength and courage, and others simply praise and worship God.

From the majesty of the angels in Jacob's ladder to the protection of Elijah's guardian angel, this beautifully illustrated picture book celebrates the mystery of angels as they appear to people on earth in twelve stories from the Bible.

From Publishers Weekly
s its title implies, this collection of Bible stories focuses on the appearance of angels to humans, as messengers of God. Each straightforward entry has a theme describing the angel's particular function; e.g., "Delivering a Promise," is the title of a retelling of Moses hearing an angel "speaking in God's voice" as he encountered the burning bush. Daniel, spared from the lions, falls under "Delivering from Death" and Mary, receiving news of her impending pregnancy from the Angel Gabriel, has the heading "Bringing Glad Tidings." The simple language and concise plotlines, blended with the miraculous nature of angels, should prove inviting to a wide readership. The original Scripture citations are provided as well. Throughout, Baboni's fuzzy, jewel-toned acrylic paintings create a dreamlike mood. Her paintings feature textured brush strokes and stylized forms, helping maintain the mystery of the subject matter. Ages 5-10. (Sept.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about Angels Among Us?

Childrens Books  May 20, 2009
"Angels Among Us" is on the United Methodist's Women reading list for 2009 and the book arrived promptly in perfect condition. I have given it to the church for our library so that everyone can read it.
A nice book about angels  Jan 20, 2009
The Bible contains many stories about angels and how they interacted with humans on earth, with over 300 references to these celestial beings. Angels Among Us, written by Leena Lane and illustrated by Elena Baboni, is a book with a selection of short stories about angels in the Bible. The book starts with the book of Genesis, where God sends an angel to guard the entrance to the Garden of Eden, after Adam and Eve have been barred from it. The last story is from the book of Acts and tells about how an angel came to Peter's prison cell to free him after King Herod had put him behind bars. Also included are stories about Jacob's ladder, Jesus' birth, and Daniel's ordeal in the lion's den and how angels played a part in each story. There are twelve stories in all. Each story references a passage in the Bible and that reference is given under the story's title.

The stories, and their accompanying illustrations, fill each double-paged spread throughout the book. The illustrations, done with acrylics are expressive, depicting the action and emotions of the scenes.

What I Like: I like having a book of short stories, each one dealing with a different story in the Bible about angels. I also like the fact that the specific Bible reference is given for each story.

What I Dislike: Although the illustrations convey action and emotion, I don't really like them, as they are not very "life-life." The faces of the people and angels are too angular to appeal to me.

Overall Rating: I give the book an overall rating of excellent, though, as the theme and content are excellent (despite my not personally liking the illustration style).

Age Appeal: The author recommends a reading audience of 9-12 years. This age group should be able to easily read the stories by themselves. But, I think younger children would enjoy listening to the stories, if they were read aloud, even though they might not appreciate the artwork.
