One afternoon, Joan Webster Anderson came across the story of a woman who believed she had been protected by an “angel” dog. An angel dog? Nonsense, thought Anderson. But the more she thought about it, the more she realized that perhaps she was putting limits on how God ought to act. If God is the God of everything, can’t He use anything – even a dog – to help people in their time of need?
Angelic Tails is a collection of true stories from ordinary people who believe that God has graced their lives through heavenly canine companions. Each of the 30 stories challenges readers to reconsider their conception of angels – just as Anderson did after asking the Holy Spirit for discernment on the matter.
In the end, for all who see through the eyes of faith, this book is unmistakable evidence that God can use four furry legs and a wagging tail to bring comfort and consolation to our world. (From the Back Cover)
