This collection of essays contributes to the development of a larger sense of reality and points toward the creation of a spiritual culture that does not abandon the material world. The key to such an all-inclusive culture lies in welcoming the angels. Sixteen authors' views of angels, from the wealth of tradition through explorations into their being, to how angels now appear in the world, prepare the reader for the coming age. This edition includes the fifteen essays originally published as A Gathering of Angels as well as three new ones. Contributing authors: Gail Thomas, Robert Sardello, Joanne Stroud, Thomas Moore, Robert D. Romanyshyn, Paco Mitchell, Donald Cowan, Larry Dossey, Frederick Turner, Louise Cowan, Dona S. Gower, Robert Trammell, Eileen Gregory, Lyle Novinski, Mary Vernon, and Therese Schroeder-Sheker.
