Great Compendium of Angel Images and Commentary  Feb 27, 2010
This is a beautiful book presenting angelic images in great art.

According to the back cover there are "375 images of angels, ranging from early Christian mosaics to the paintings of Marc Chagall".

There are often a number of images devoted to a single biblical passage. For example, for Isaiah 6:1-3 there are eight 2-page spreads dealing with eight works of art.

The first two pages on a passage include the verses referred to along with a short description of how the angels referred to in the passage are depicted in the work of art shown. Then each additional two page spread focuses on how the different works of art present angelic beings referred to in the passage.

This book is a great reference to biblical passages dealing with angels as well as giving a brief treatment of 375 works of art that present angels in a biblical context. Book passages and art refer to:

Genesis (pp. 10-193)
Exodus (pp. 194-209)
Numbers (pp. 210-217)
Joshua (pp. 218-223)
Judges (pp. 224-227)
1 Samuel (pp. 228-231)
2 Samuel (pp. 232-237)
1 Kings (pp. 238-257)
2 Kings (pp. 258-263)
Tobit (pp. 264-307)
Judith (pp. 308-311)
2 Maccabees (pp. 312-313)
Job (pp. 314-321)
Psalms (pp. 322-371)
Proverbs (pp. 372-375)
Wisdom (pp. 376-379)
Isaiah (pp. 380-395)
Ezekiel (pp. 396-427)
The Prayer of Azariah (pp. 428-433)
Daniel (pp. 434-441)
Bel (pp. 442-445)
Zechariah (pp. 446-447)
Matthew (pp. 448-531)
Mark (pp. 534-553)
Luke (pp. 554-667)
John (pp. 668-677)
Acts (pp. 678-685)
Ephesians (pp. 686-691)
Colossians (pp. 692-697)
1 Peter (pp. 698-699)
2 Peter (pp. 700-711)
Revelation (pp. 712-765)

One wishes for a larger format version, but this a great "pocket" (though not in weight!) version for easy reference. The binding looks sturdy, but the weight of the book will undoubtedly put stress on it.

This is a "must have" for anyone interested in studying about or understanding the biblical presentation of angels.
