The Angels and Their Mission According to the Fathers of the Church
by Jean Danielou
translated by David Heimann

The Angels and Their Mission According to the Fathers of the Church by Jean Danielou translated by David Heimann
  • Description
  • Reviews

In this present work, Father Jean Danielou provides us with a learned, yet readable treatment of the mission of the angels in the economy of salvation. He begins by following a historical order, dealing with the angels in the world before the Incarnation, during our Lord's earthly life, and presiding over the growth and development of the Church. We then have luminous chapters on the guardian angels, on the angels and the sacraments, the spiritual life, death and the second coming. Father Danielou's work is notable for its synthesis which it achieves between the teaching of the Church Fathers and later theological speculation on the angels. It fills a gap of long-standing in theological literature, and may be read with great profit by students and the general public alike.

About the Author
Jean Danielou was justly considered on the most foremost Catholic theologians in the world. Educated at the Sorbonne, he was professor of the history of primitive Christianity on the Faculty of Theology of Paris, and an editor of Etudes and Dieu Vivant. Among his works translated into English are: Advent, The Salvation of the Nations, Origen and The Bible and the Liturgy. He is also the translator of From Glory to Glory: Texts from Gregory of Nyssa's Mystical Writings.
