Encyclopedia of Angels Review

Guest Author - Deanna Joseph

The Encyclopedia of Angels, Spirit Guides and Ascended Masters
A Guide to 200 Celestial Beings to Help, Heal, and Assist You in Everyday Life By Susan Gregg

One of the first things about this book that impressed me so was its size. It's rather large, and though it's not a hard bound book, the cover is certainly thicker than your typical paper back book.

Wendy Edelson is the artist for this lovely book, and sheís done a wonderful job. The pictures look like water color renderings. With its lovely art, it makes a perfect coffee table book.

I had never read anything by Susan Gregg before, so I wasnít sure what to expect. I already have a library of angelic books, so I tried to set any preconceptions aside. This turned out to be easy, for as soon as I opened this book I was delighted.

The first page I flipped open to was Metatron, an angel from both Judaism and Christianity. Now Iíve had more than a passing interest in Metatron for almost 10 years now, and thought Iíd read everything there was to read about him. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that Susan had a bit of information Iíd never heard of.

The book is divided into four parts; archangels and angels, saints, ascended masters-spirit guides-master teachers, and gods and goddesses. They are not listed alphabetically (not even in the table of contents), so you canít just flip through the book and easily find a particular deity unless you go to the index.

Part one is the archangels and angels, and contains information on 46 of the angelic beings. She covers the well known archangels, along with some of the lesser known angels like Elim, Bath Kol and Pathiel.

Part two is on the saints. She covers information on 24 of them, including some of the more well known saints as Francis of Assisi and Teresa of Avila, but also some lesser known ones (to me anyway) like Bridget of Sweden and Alexis.

Part three is ascended masters, spirit guides and master teachers. I found this section to be the most interesting as it contains personalities I was familiar with (such as King Arthur and Merlin) who I never actually considered ascended masters, but more mythological characters. She also talks about more familiar masters, such as Jesus, Buddha Lao-Tze and White Eagle, and some that Iíd never heard of like Hilarion and Lanto. There are 40 of them in this chapter.

Part four is on the gods and goddesses, and, again, she takes care to list the more well known ones like Zeus, Isis and Venus, along with some that arenít quite as well known (to me at least), such as Hina and Yemaya. She also lists some of my favorites: Blodeuwedd, Danu and Aine. There are 90 of them in all listed in this part.

Each page is laid out beautifully. Their associated faith, culture and time spent here on Earth (if any) is listed. Susan provides a brief list of things the Being may help you with, along with an invocation and a brief bit of history or folklore.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, both Susanís writing and Wendyís artwork, and would recommend it to anyone who wished to further their knowledge of the Beings from the Heavenly Realms.
