From Booklist :

It was bound to happen. With angels as the subject of a growing number of books and angel gifts appearing in stores and catalogs, a reference book couldn't be far behind. This dictionary, by two firm believers in angels, has 300 entries discussing angels across religious traditions, including New Age thought. Lewis is the author of several other Gale titles, including The Dream Encyclopedia [RBB N 15 95] and The Encyclopedia of Afterlife Beliefs and Phenomena [RBB Ap 15 95].

Angels in various religions (Christianity, Islam, Hinduism) are treated, along with well-known angels, such as Michael and Gabriel, and obscure ones like Abdiel and Hadraniel. There is coverage of guardian angels and fallen angels and biblical figures associated with angels. Angels in art, architecture, film, TV, and music, as well as literature about angels, from Dante to today's New Age writers, are also included. In addition to treating angels from the point of view of religion, they are also discussed in terms of the occult and metaphysics, with entries on UFOs, fairies, and witches. There are brief bibliographies at the end of entries, with sources ranging from The Encyclopedia of Religion to A Treatise on Angel Magic. The beautiful religious art featuring angels doesn't reproduce too well in black and white. Appendixes include a classified bibliography, a filmography, and angel resources: organizations, publications, retail and mail-order companies, and Web pages. A detailed index includes illustrations as well as text.

For public libraries where there is an interest in angels, from either a traditional religious or New Age point of view. Sandy Whiteley
