Praise

“Books on the angelic in the Bible are usually of varying quality—so fluffy and story filled they lack a coherent basis in Scripture, or so impenetrably philosophical one can’t apply them to the normal Christian life. Scot McKnight’s The Hum of Angels carefully avoids all these pitfalls and presents a sound and balanced biblical vision of God’s angelic realm and its work. He helpfully reimagines the ministry of angels, while keeping his work rooted in and framed by Scripture. The Hum of Angels is a worthy addition to the library of anyone wanting a solid, insightful, and scriptural view of God’s angelic ministers.”
—Jonathan Macy, author of In the Shadow of His Wings and minister in the Church of England

“Angels are everywhere! Until I read this book, I must confess that even as a Bible teacher I’d missed how ever present angels are at key junctures and in critical ways throughout the biblical story. As a pastor, I’d been mostly blind to the angels all around us (which most people in our church body, statistics show, more readily see). This wonderful book opened not only my eyes but my ears to the beautiful hum of angels surrounding us—a harmony that points us to the melody of Jesus at the center.”
—Joshua Ryan Butler, pastor at Imago Dei Community, Portland, OR; author of The Skeletons in God’s Closet and The Pursuing God

“I make a practice of reading everything Scot McKnight writes because I learn so much from his bright mind and generous spirit. His work exemplifies an intelligent, rich way of understanding the Bible; and this wonderful book is no exception. After having read The Hum of Angels, I’ll walk through my day with more awareness of God’s loving presence and comfort, and more hope because of it.”
—Shauna Niequist, New York Times best-selling author of Present over Perfect

“In The Hum of Angels, Scot McKnight invites us to consider the active and significant role angels play on the pages of Scripture and in fulfilling the purposes of God today—not for the sake of information, but for the sake of hope. How easy it is for us, from our ground-level perspective, to give discouragement and despair the upper hand. This reminder of the powerful activity of myriads of God’s angels on our behalf is one more reason for hope to thrive in the future of God’s ultimate victory over evil. This book is an eye-opening, reassuring, and hope-filled read.”
—Carolyn Custis James, author of Half the Church: Recapturing God’s Global Vision for Women and Malestrom: Manhood Swept into the Currents of a Changing World
