Angel stories from the Bible — for kids

Modern believers may be tempted to look upon angels as one of the more fanciful elements of Scripture, but this illuminating and entertaining collection of angel stories from the Bible shows that there are just too many angels for them to be metaphorical, allegorical, or unimportant.

So that children will come to know and learn to revere angels, Marigold Hunt explains what angels are (and are not!) and gathers here in one volume most of the stories of angels in the Bible, including exciting tales of:

  • The fallen angels, beginning with the devil himself, tempting Adam and Eve
  • The angel who barred the gates of Eden so Adam and Eve could never enter again
  • The angels who announced that Sara, Abraham’s aged wife, would have a baby
  • The angels who tried to save Lot from destruction with the city of Sodom
  • The angel who stayed Abraham’s hand as he was about to sacrifice his son Isaac
  • The angels in Jacob’s dream who climbed the stairway to Heaven
  • The angels who saved Sidrach, Misach, and Abdenago from the fiery furnace
  • The angel Raphael, who shielded Tobias from death, and protected his wife Sara
  • The angels at the Ascension who chided the apostles for staring at the sky
  • The angel Gabriel, who foretold the birth of Jesus and John the Baptist
  • The choirs of angels who sang above Bethlehem when Jesus was born
  • The angel who carried food to Daniel when he was imprisoned in the lion’s den
  • The angel who freed Peter from prison, and, of course:
  • The countless angels who fill the marvelous pages of the Book of Revelation

 

Children will be charmed by these exciting tales.

The best Catholic children's writer!
I ordered this book because of my experience with Marigold Hunt's other books and she does not disappoint. This is not a fluffy, new age presentation of angels but teachings taken straight from the Church. She brings angels alive without being frightening. This book is truly a gem! I enjoyed it as much as my children did, but I am thrilled to think that the lessons will stay in their hearts throughout their lives. Enjoy!

Very solid catholic book for kids and adults
I love this book because it teaches important concepts to my kids by using tangible things or images (such as wildfire for sin). It also talks about creation in a very smart manner.

An excellent introduction to angels in the Bible for children
All the stories are directly from the Bible, retold with helpful contextual explanations that orient the child so that they will understand the stories much better than they would if you just read them out of your Bible. And many of these are stories that don't make it into traditional children's Bibles. Marigold Hunt is one of our favorite authors. She makes Bible stories come to life and we usually end up wanting to go back to the source and read the original after we're done with a read aloud of one of her books. All my kids (age 3, 5, 6, and 8) love this book. Highly recommended.

Solid teaching, good writing.
My boys enjoy this book. The author does a good job of communicating effectively to young children without watering things down or talking down to them. Solid in the Catholic faith.
