Loving Angels Instead?

Loving Angels Instead?

One in three Britons believe they have a guardian angel. One in ten reports seeing an angel.
Yet the same surveys show just one in four describing themselves as religious. Have angels, traditionally God’s messengers, become the message itself? Writer and broadcaster Peter Stanford latest book explores both the history of angels in our religions and cultures, and their current soaring popularity in an age that likes to describe itself as secular, sceptical and scientific.
