Banyen's Description: 

From Rami Shapiro, the rabbi who wrote The Sacred Art of Lovingkindness, comes this new book, The Angelic Way, which offers a fresh and dynamic way to enter the mythic world of spirituality that recognizes angels as aspects of our own consciousness, allowing us to embrace the angelic within our own mind.

Examining angels as metaphors—not only of God reaching out to humankind but also of humankind reaching out to God—this comprehensive study illuminates the philosophical, psychological, and spiritual implications of angels, both heavenly and fallen, for readers and seekers of every faith or none. It gives both an overview of angels in various religious traditions, and an explanation of angels as expressions of human spiritual awareness, and shows that the fascination with winged spirits is universal. Offering an accessible history of angels, an exploration of the contemporary implications of angelology, and a means to make sense of angels and the divine in life, this stunning addition to angelic studies is a beautiful invitation to embrace the angelic in the everyday.

In The Angelic Way we will interpret specific angel stories as folk ideas of one spiritual tradition or another in the hopes of uncovering the greater elementary concepts underlying all angel stories, as well as the world soul in which those elementary concepts dwell and out of which each human mind emerges.

“At last! A discussion of angels that is lucid, comprehensive, and truly in the service of inner transformation.” —Cynthia Bourgeault (The Wisdom Jesus)

“Rami Shapiro has not only given us historical information but also many spiritual insights about what angels have been to the human psyche in story, myth, and scripture. This is a fine book to enjoy and to learn from.” —Gunilla Norris, author of

Simple Ways
