Demons Yes—But Thank God for Good Angels. By Lehman Strauss. Neptune, NJ: Loizeaux Bros., 1976. 121 pp. Paper, $1.95.

The title of this little book may give the impression that its content is primarily about good angels. That is not the case. Only one of the nine chapters deals with good angels.

The argument rests on an effective application of the principle of reasoning back from detailed evidences of careful desian in the creation to an infinitely wise Designer.
