Ascending Jacobs Ladder : Jewish Views of Angels, Demons, and Evil Spirits
From classic art to modern-day television programs, angels are represented in many ways and in many forms. Although angels have permeated Jewish tradition since biblical times, they remain a mystery to most people, often thought of as distinctly un-Jewish icons. In Ascending Jacob's Ladder: Jewish Views of Angels, Demons, and Evil Spirits, Rabbi Ronald H. Isaacs introduces readers to the fascinating Jewish world of angels, from earliest times to the modern period.
