Publisher's Summary

What are angels? Many people believe in angels, but few can define these enigmatic spirits. Now visionary theologian Matthew Fox and acclaimed biologist Rupert Sheldrake - pioneers in modern religious thinking and scientific theory - launch a groundbreaking exploration into the ancient concept of the angel and restore dignity, meaning, and joy to the time-honored belief in these heavenly beings.
Angels constitute one of the most fundamental themes in human spiritual and religious experience. All cultures acknowledge the existence of spirits at levels beyond the human. In the West, we call them angels, but they go under different names in other traditions.
We are entering a new phase of both science and theology. Fox and Sheldrake explore many significant questions raised by both traditions about the existence and role of consciousness beyond the human level.
This dialog between Fox and Sheldrake concentrates on three giants of the Western tradition whose treatment of angels is particularly broad, deep, and influential. They are Dionysius the Areopagite, a Syrian monk whose classic work, The Celestial Hierarchies, was written in the sixth century; Hildegard of Bingen, a German abbess of the 12th century; and St. Thomas Aquinas, a philosopher-theologian of the 13th century.
Fox and Sheldrake have selected their most important and relevant passages about angels, and each is followed by a discussion exploring their meaning from both a theological and a scientific perspective.

Interesting read

Loved how they presented this book, very well considered. Clever interpretation of physics, which creates a believable argument. A must read for anyone who has read The Field by linda mctaggart and anyone interested in the idea of god and angels.

Excruciating

After being impressed by Sheldrake's measured, well-thought-out book 'The Science Delusion' I thought I'd give this a go. What a mistake. Pseudo-religious claptrap batted back and forth, most of it making no sense whatsoever, all couched in a framework of unconditional belief in the unutterably absurd. This book has no redeeming aspects whatsoever, it is appalling.
