An Angel Walks into a Bar

Thomas Nelson’s Joel Miller has a new book out about angels, which I blurbed. We ran a promotional piece by Miller in Real Clear Religion yesterday. In the process of giving Hollywood some ideas about how to do angels right, Miller took a few fun digs:

Hollywood usually blows it when it comes to angels. Clarence from It’s a Wonderful Life may be endearing, but he’s nothing like the angels we find in the pages of scripture.

Ditto for Christopher Lloyd in Angels in the Outfield or Denzel Washington in The Preacher’s Wife. And if John Travolta had played Gabriel instead of Michael, Mary would have called off the Annunciation.
