Angelology: the Study of Angels
by Dr. Robert D. Luginbill
God’s creation of angelic beings, the rebellion of some, His plan and ultimate victory.
In speaking of angels, He says, “He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire.” Heb. 1:7 NIV
Dr. Luginbill’s work, Angelogy, the Study of Angels, is a single chapter work on Angels. Although brief, it is quite well documented on the specifics of the doctrine of angels. Angelology, Study of Angels by Bill Luginbill is a very long single chapter outline on angelology. It has two divisions, The Purpose, Creation and Nature of Angels, and Satan’s Rebellion and World Rule.
