Angels Watching Over Me. is a non-fictional Christian book written by Pam Ware and Linda Dipman that is inspired by their own life-story of adversity and miracles. The story begins with Pam, who finds herself in a life or death situation that lead to a warm experience with an invisible force. She accepts Jesus as her loving Saviour and surrenders her life to God. The Holy Spirit guides her in her career path which results in her always doing the right thing for the success of her hospice business. Contrary to Pam, Linda became a Christian early in her life. She witnesses a miracle and has an encounter with the Holy Spirit leading to her evaluation of the perfect Christian life she thought she led. She gets divorced and is abandoned by her family and friends all because she loves a woman. Her sexual orientation gives rise to a string of misfortune, hardship and miracles.
Pam and Linda's story of trials and triumphs is heart-breaking but very inspirational and shows us that even in the face of adversity God is always there to see us through. These authors have mastered the art of engaging the audience. There were times where I would have to take a moment and shed a few tears because I could feel the emotions of the characters. I could not help but ask myself; how would I fare against such spiritual warfare and tragedy? The writing style and word choice are clear and simple, almost over-explanatory. The clarity makes it feel like the authors are right next to you telling you the story face-to-face
After the middle, the book started to sound a bit repetitive but towards the end it became apparent that the repetition was to portray emphasis and was a means of driving the message home. The message being that we live in a learning world that is ruled by an evil god (Lucifer), who uses evil forces to wreak havoc in our lives. All to make us question the presence, and even the existence of a loving and merciful God.
I read this book cover to cover, and I found no grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors. This gave rise to the conclusion that this book is expertly edited and proof-read by a skilled and experienced professional. There is no profanity of any kind in this book which makes it safe for a wide spectrum of people and age groups. What I liked most about this book is the way it is compartmentalized into parts. There are 34 chapters, and all are grouped into 9 parts, which makes it easier to follow and manage for people with low-attention spans.
I rate Angels Watching Over Me. by Pam Ware and Linda Dipman a four out of four stars. I recommend this book to all Christians of all churches, and from all walks of life. If you or a fellow Christian you know is struggling with their faith or is experiencing spiritual warfare, this book is a definite must read. I also recommend it to those who have survived child abuse and neglect, parents who were too religious, or you are just seeking confirmation that God loves all the members of the LGBTQ community. The book is also an interesting read for leaders and business owners in the health industry, who want to live a purpose-filled life. This book will show you that it is okay to different and will inspire you to be a victor and not a victim.
