Angels live in communities, wear clothes, and have no wings! So said Emanuel Swedenborg, Swedish scientist and seer who, for the last twenty-seven years of his life, visited heaven and hell almost daily and met angels and evil spirits. Swedenborg's visions and the meaning they can have in our lives are explained in this remarkable book. Author Robert H. Kirven also shows how angels work for us from birth through death and how we can be angels on earth.

I absolutely loved the Angels in Action book, the most exquisite and thorough book I have ever read on Angels. The cover also depicts exactly what you will find in the book and more, for it too is most beautiful and reverent. I also want to mention what a delight it is to learn about a most remarkable, fearless and generous man, Mr Emanuel Swedenborg. - Elene
