Item Description...
Father Jean Danielou discusses the mission of the angels in the economy of salvation and provides a very readable synthesis of the teachings of the church Fathers and later theological speculation concerning angels. He begins by following a historical order, dealing with the angels in the world before the Incarnation, during our Lord's earthly life, and as presiding over the growth and development of the Church. We then have luminous chapters on the guardian angels, on the angels and the sacraments, the spiritual life, death, the Second Coming.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Catholic idea of angels  Jan 8, 2006
It had been a while since I had read anything by Danielou, and as I was looking for a short description of Catholic belief regarding angels, their existence and being, his was a name I knew I could trust. This little book surpassed my expectations. Danielou is a first rate theologian who in this book condenses a vast subject area into a short, concise, readable volume. Danielou covers ancient, extra-biblical belief in angels, as well as their manifestation in both the Old and New Testaments. The book is focused on the Patristic understanding of angels and is therefore backed heavily by scriptural references. I found to be very enlightening the role angels play in the ascension of Man (and thus in a sense humanity) to the throne of God in the person of Jesus Christ. This book would be a great gift for any New Age or Protestant enquirer into the Christian conception of angels and their meaning for us in our lives of faith.
An invaluable synthesis, valuable to any and all readers  Jan 5, 2005
Jean Danielou, who spearheaded the Catholic ressourcement movement of patristic scholarship in the mid to late twentieth century, is a true master of the patristic mind, with the added advantage that he has even their least accessible works at his literary fingertips. Here he has stooped to give us a compendium of patristic angelology, in a form that is both popular and scolarly acute. Dry medieval speculation about the metaphysical natures of angels gave way long ago to modern skepticm of their very existence, which has more recently given way to a postmodern fanciful obsession with them, an obsession which is unfortunately now unhinged from any foundation in the theological tradition which gave us angelology in the first place.

Danielou submerges us in the first Christian reflections on God's heavenly hosts, beginning in the pages of Scripture itself and stretching through the fifth century (with a chronological exemption given to our good friend Denys, for obvious reasons), reflection which focuses not on their natures but rather on their salvific mission to man, a topic far more robust and theologically satisfying.

Danielou's chapters on the angelic activity of the Old Covenant and of the pagan nations were most interesting, if only because this activity is the most glossed over by post-patristic treatments. Most helpful is the way familiar biblical passages are interwoven with early patristic commentaries and homilies, which put the same passages in a new light. It is also stunning to see the broad and surprising amount of consensus which the Fathers were able to hold on issues related to angelology, even on matters which are of little interest to theologians today (e.g., guardian angels, the 'angels of the nations,' the role of the angels in the sacramental economy). The book has the added advantage of being short and concise, easily readable in two or three days.
