    Kindle Edition ô Angels PDF/EPUB æ angels kindle, Angels EpubUm livro bem legal para entender como funciona a dinâmica cultural do fenômeno dos anjos desde a antiguidade até os dias de hoje e como eles a partir das suas mais diferentes representações acabaram se imiscuindo na cultura popular nos filmes uadrinhos novelas livros de aventura young adult enfim A parte ue mais gostei foi a ue explica a mutação do sexo dos anjos algo ue tem um fundo cultural bastante impressionante e um boa explicação para aueles como eu ue estudam o gênero Outras partes interessantes são as ue falam sobre as hostes angelicais e sobre os nefeleins ou os anjos caídos dos uais fazem parte os demônios Um outro ponto positivo deste livro é ue o autor David Albert Jones não possui uma visão esotérica dos anjos a ponto de uerer nos levar a crer neles mas uma visão mais estoica e cínica ue coloca essas criaturas como
