Angels are not some new age fad. The stories of unexplained rescues by spirit beings who appear in time of need have been well documented throughout recorded history. A recent Time magazine poll revealed that approximately 69% of Americans believe in angels and 46% believe they have their own guardian angel or angels. In a Gallup poll 13% of Americans polled indicated they believe they have encountered an angel or a supernatural being. Near-death experiences, such as those of Ned Dougherty and Lou Famoso, include encounters with archangels such as Michael. The first angelic experience I profile on this web page was the result of an NDE documented in the video series entitled “Angel Stories” (Part 1 and Part 2). The next experience profiled is an angel encounter which is documented in the excellent book by Dr. Melvin Morse and Paul Perry entitled Parting Visions. The final experience comes from the booklet Angel Voices from Globe Digest.
