Review of the book Lifted By Angels by Joel Miller

I was excited at first to receive and review this book because I enjoy reading spiritual things and I enjoy reading books about angels and I enjoy reading the bible. I now have mixed reviews on the book.

My first complaint I have about the book is how it talks about Trinity but GOD, Jesus are two separate people. The bible clearly states that GOD's name is Jehovah and that he had a son born through the virgin Mary named Jesus Christ. In Acts chapter 7 and verses 55,56 stephen says that he saw Jesus standing at GOD's right hand. And the chapter Matthew talks about Jesus getting on his knees and praying to his father, if he is his father who is he praying too? And there are many more examples I could get into.

I did like how the author does get a few stories in the bible correct involving GOD and angels such as the chapter on Adam and Eve. He described it exactly as in the bible. But he messed up the story of Lot and his family. When the angel rescued Lot and his family, he told them not to look back, to look straight ahead, but his wife when fleeing, looked back and for her punishment turned into a pillar of salt, so she did not make it out alive. That happpened because she was not supposed to have a desire for things of the past. Another thing the author got wrong was how Jesus went into hell to fight with Satan after he died. Hell does not exist and we do not go there to be punished. When we die, we are sleeping, conscious of nothing which we can see by the scripture Ecc 5:9,10 which says the the living are conscious that they will die, but as for the dead, the are conscious of nothing at all.

The author did get the story of Daniel and the lion correct as well as the story of Abraham and Jacob and Mary and Joseph, and the story of Jesus fasting for 40 days and being tempted by Satan.

I was frustrated with the book because he said alot of things that were simply not true or correct of certain scriptures that many people take and misapply to make it sound to what they want. Also they way the book was written was hard to understand and you made you feel like you were stupid when going through the book, like you needed higher education to get it yet the bible is very easy to understand and even the lowestly people can understand it and learn the truth about GOD and be happy. I will probably throw this book out honestly and not share it with anyone.
