This collection of stories and illustrations—all about the wonders of the spiritual realm—takes you on a captivating ride from the great myths of ancient civilization to astounding discoveries of the modern era.
In his amazing New York Times bestseller The Secret History of the World, Mark Booth introduced the enthralling history of the world’s greatest secrets. From Greek and Egyptian mythology to Jewish folklore and Christian cults to Don Quixote, he delved into the hidden wisdom going back three millennia—and the light it sheds on humanity’s greatest achievements.
Now, in The Sacred History, Booth tackles the great spiritual myths of history, examining the varying explanations—both ancient and modern—of the mystifying realm of angels. These are the stories of how people have been helped, in times of crisis and joy, by angels and other spiritual beings since the beginning of time. Drawing on these awe-inspiring stories, Booth examines how the spiritual world has shaped our history, our beliefs, our civilization, our religions, and ultimately, our sense of self.
Philosophical, passionate, entertaining, and filled with gorgeous illustrations, The Sacred History is a gateway into the spiritual world that will open up the possibility of angels to even the most skeptical of readers.
