Are there truly spirits among us?  Are we really being watched over?  What happens when we die?  These are very common questions, and many of us wonder these things from time to time.

In this book, Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters, James Stuart Bell has compiled more than forty stories from contributors who relate their encounters with the supernatural.  Each tells of a time when they felt they caught a quick peek behind the veil that separates us from God.

The tales vary.  There are sweet comforting stories that have relate experiences of coming to peace after the death of a loved one.   Others are sobering, as the authors share of times when they have clearly felt themselves covered in protection from evil.  On woman shares how a series of unfortunate mishaps when she was in high school led to a short period of time when she was clinically dead, and what she felt.  Another woman now echoes the words of her mother when her kids leave the house.  "Be careful, honey.  I'm praying for you!".

It is not deep theology, by any means, but the stories are of actual personal encounters.

Because of the format, this is a book that can be read straight through, or savored in small bits, when encouragement is needed.

From the Back Cover:

There's more going on in the world than meets the eye. 
There is an unseen spiritual realm, and occasionally God allows us glimpses of it. Angels, Miracles, and Heavenly Encounters offers a fascinating look at the supernatural world. It includes more than forty true stories of miraculous provision, encounters with angels and demons, near-death experiences, and incredible rescues. 
You'll marvel at how God and His angels are working behind the scenes to protect and guide us. And you'll be comforted by glimpses of the peace that awaits us in heaven. The God who pulled back the curtain for a moment in the lives of these writers is the same God who works all things together for our good. 
Whether you're simply curious about the supernatural world or longing for a fresh experience of God's presence, these amazing stories will touch your heart and strengthen your faith in the God of miracles.
