Richard Burson’s new book, “Descending Angels” (published by WestBow Press), is an account of the multiple experiences he had with hospice patients as a chaplain. Since everyone faces the inevitability of death, Burson believes his book will bring comfort and hope to people nearing life’s end and their loved ones after they are gone.

“Descending Angels” speaks of the love of God for his children and the angels from heaven to carry his children home to heaven through several encounters with people who Burson ministered to while they were dying. The book discusses the origins of angels, their makeup and their roles for humans. Burson also deals with the unknowns of death and provides some answers to the questions people might ask as they are dying or a loved one is dying.

An excerpt from “Descending Angels”:
Notice what Hebrews 1:14 says: “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” God’s promise here tells us that angels are with us and will carry us to paradise
