Angela Buck and Interview

About Angela Buck

Angela knelt at an altar in a small church holding a revival in Eugene, Oregon in 1966 and surrendered her life to Jesus Christ. A life of neglect, abuse, street life, alcoholism and confinement in jail, juvenile home and mental institution. But at that altar all these "old things" passed away and she left that church a twenty year old "new creation". God had healed her mind and delivered her from the alcohol addiction that had so controlled her life. This was but the beginning of a "new life" that eventually propelled her into a ministry that still blesses thousands of souls across America. And the books of inspiration that came from her experiences bless thousands more around the world.

Interview with Angela Buck

Do you have a favorite quote or passage from Angels Walk With Me that you'd like to share with us?

“God is for us, always and in every situation and never against us. And if God is for us who can be against us?”

After reading Angels Walk With Me, what do you want people to take away with them?

That in spite of our mistakes, tragedies, hurts, disappointments, and unfair dealings that come our way and we seemingly have no control of, yet against all odds God can and will help us and turn around everything in our life that seems so wrong and work it out for our good. And if we will keep our faith in God it will all turn out all right in the end.

Which deceased author would you most like to take out to dinner?

Charles Dickens. He wrote from his heart and he cared deaply about people and their sufferings, their sorrows, poverty and also their joys, goodness and happiness.

What is the best contemporary novel you've read in the last year?

Not a novel, but the same book that I read continually year after year, the Bible. Always up to date in every situation and showing the handiwork of God in individuals lives and always giving us hope in every situation.

Had you always wanted to be a writer?

No, but God told me to write, and when I write I feel His Hand directing me.

What was the book that most influenced your life and why?

A book, the title of which I have forgotten. It was a series of short stories about song writers and what inspired them to write their songs. I found that many of them of them wrote their songs in the midst of tragedy and loss. It seemed to me, that out of their sorrows and from their grieving hearts, came their most meaningful words of comfort and hope to others. Like sweet coming from bitter and a healing balm coming from a wound.

What is the best writing advice you've ever been given?

Write what you feel in your heart, what you care about and what you believe in.

What are some of your favorite books from your childhood?

Diary of Anne Frank.

What do you think of eBooks? Do you support digital publishing?

I think it is great, the best thing that has happened for readers, writers and publishers. It is easy to purchase and read an eBook and it enables writers to get their books and stories out there for others to read, learn from and be entertained by, and at a very affordable cost too.

If you could choose one superhero power, what would it be and why?

God and the Holy Ghost. The New Testament, especially the Gospels and the Book of Acts. They are full of supernatural power, miracles, etc. Even the Old Testament. Look at how God parted the Red Sea in the book of Exodus so the Isrealites could walk through and escape from Egypt.
