In the Arms of Angels

True Stories of Heavenly Guardians



I am going to send an angel in front of you,
to guard you on the way.
Exodus 23:20 NRSV

When Joan Wester Anderson wrote Where Angels Walk, millions of readers were captivated by her inspiring
collection of true stories of angelic intervention. The book remained on the New York Times Best-Seller List for over a year.

In the Arms of Angels is Anderson's newest collection of mysterious and heart-stirring stories of heavenly guardians. From the harrowing account of a World Trade Center survivor to a miraculous rescue during the first Gulf War, these powerful stories invite us to take another look at the "coincidences" in our lives--to open our eyes to the angels who walk beside us.

"In times of uncertainty, we long to be reminded that, as Joan Wester Anderson writes, 'We are not alone.'"
--Rev. Timothy Jones, author, The Art of Prayer, Workday Prayers, and Celebration of Angels

"In the Arms of Angels is a true gem, a book to be treasured."
--Jessie Frees, radio host, WMTR/WWTR New Jersey
