Human sacrifice, floods, plagues, murders, massacres, betrayal, wars, incest, sea monsters and dragons – how well do we really remember the stories we learnt in school scripture lessons?

From Genesis to the Book of Revelation, Dark History of The Bible explores some of the oldest stories in the world. Whether we are believers or not, these are some of the most influential stories in life and in art. As well as looking at the historical roots behind the stories, the book examines their inconsistencies and how they can be interpreted in different ways.

From Jacob tricking his father Isaac over his brother’s inheritance to the walls of Jericho tumbling down, from Moses crossing the Red Sea to Jesus’s Flight into Egypt, from King David and Bathsheba to John the Baptist and Salome, from the sea monster Leviathan to the Beast and the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse, Dark History of the Bible includes the most compelling stories from the King James’s Authorised Version of the Old and New Testaments.

Easily accessible and illustrated with 180 colour and black-and-white photographs, maps and artworks, Dark History of the Bible examines the tales of skulduggery, vengeance and retribution in the world’s most famous book.
