Not every book at the library is a thick, dense novel. Sometimes a reader just wants a short read, or a bit of encouragement. The library offers many shorter stories and magazines for those with little time to read. If you’re looking for a book you can pick up for 3 minutes at a time, receive a bit of encouragement, and move on to the next activity, why not try this title now available for check out?
Mini Moments with Angels features forty short anecdotes about encounters with angels or thoughts on the existence of angels. On each page is a story, and then a quote and Bible verse relating to the narrative. The author (or collector of the stories), Robert Strand, is quick to point out in his introduction that this slim volume is not meant to encourage worship of angels, but merely encourage and uplift the reader. Indeed, most of the stories focus on the human experience (however ephemeral) but aren't credited and end very quickly after they begin. A few footnotes at the end credit other sources the reader may want to consult for expanded stories with angels.
