Last December I reviewed a children's book by Anthony DeStefano, Little Star. Several months ago, Mr. DeStefano sent me another of his books to read. I just pulled out the letter he sent, and I'm happy to see it doesn't have a date on it, so I don't know how embarrassed I should be about how long it has been sitting on my desk, waiting. I read the book right away; I just didn't blog about it.
Unlike Little Star, The Invisible World is not a children's book. Subtitled Understanding Angels, Demons and the Spiritual Realities That Surround Us, this book explains the Catholic Church's teachings of God's other creatures who were given free will. Although I do not consider myself ignorant of the world of angels and demons, Mr. DeStefano managed to keep my attention, present new information, and provide a unique perspective on topics to which I had merely given cursory thoughts. For example, although I pray daily to my guardian angel and have some very concrete examples of times he has helped me, I really had not considered that he would have a unique personality, just as we humans do.
I especially recommend this book to anyone who has little knowledge of angels and the spiritual world and who would like a reliable, Catholic resource.
If you would like to get a free copy of the book for yourself, leave a comment and I will select one person randomly. Mr. DeStefano offered me a copy to one of my readers, but if that had a time limit which has expired, I will buy a copy myself.
Updated to add a deadline to leave a comment: I'll randomly pick a name on Thursday morning, Sept 1st.
