The Army of the Dead: Ghost and Horror Stories from the Bible​

When you think of ghost or horror stories, the Bible isn’t the first book that comes to mind. But it should be. Why? What tales does it contain?

A séance. An invisible army. A disembodied hand. Nightmares of moths and bottomless pits. Spirits that drive mad and deceive. An angel of death. A battle between rival gods, and a son of the gods in an inferno. Hell swallowing families alive. Demon possessions and exorcisms. A ghost that walks through the wind. An undead, tortured body. A mass extinction. Plans to murder a son and immolate a daughter. A brother buried alive. A dismembered lover. A bisected baby. A gang mauled by beasts. Mothers eating their new-borns. Human sacrifice in a valley of corpses. An army of dead bones and an army of slime. A massacre of children. Decapitation. Bloody entrails gushing out. A politician eaten alive by worms.

These aren’t tales for children at bedtime or for parishioners in sleepy church services or for boring school RE classes. These are stories designed to put the fear of God in you. They are elemental, visceral, uncanny. And they are collected here so you can read and shudder…if you dare!
