God Talks to Ordinary People – Are You Listening?
“Saved by Angels” is Bruce Van Natta’s story of God’s intervention his life through a visitation of angels when a logging truck he was repairing fell off its jack and pinned him under the front axle. I was captivated by Bruce’s amazing and miraculous testimony; and deeply moved by God’s call on his life when I read his book in 2008. Bruce continues to demonstrate how the Lord uses ordinary people to carry out his purposes in everyday occurrences.
This expanded edition of “Saved by Angels” includes study questions for reflection and personal application. The book is designed to be used as a tool to record or describe those times when God has spoken to you through his word, audible or the written; answered prayer; other people; dreams and visions; angels; life circumstances, and the inner whisper of the Holy Spirit. A DVD accompanies the book.
“Your Turn” exercises at the end of each chapter offer a chance “keep track” that is for the reader to note personal incidents in their own lives that relate to the material discussed in the chapter.
Bruce, a mechanic by trade, has a unique conversational writing style that is:
• Remarkable in simplicity
• Candid and sincere
• Amazing in depth
• Rich in application
• Powerful in impact
• Engaging and compelling
“Saved by Angels” is written with the prayer that the reader will be inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Jesus and incorporate these foundational truths into a lifestyle and spiritual journey that honor him.
