The Sacred History is an account of the workings of the supernatural in history. It tells the epic story of angels, from Creation to Evolution and through to the operations of the supernatural in the modern world. This tale of how people and peoples have been helped by angels and other angelic beings is woven into a spellbinding narrative that brings together Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Elijah, Mary and Jesus, Mohammed, Joan of Arc, the angels who helped Hungarian Jews persecuted by the Nazis, and stories from African, Native American, and Celtic traditions.
Told from the spiritual point of view, The Sacred History relates every betrayal, every change of heart, every twist and turn, everything that looks like a coincidence, every portent, every clue, every defeat, every rescue moments before the prison door clangs shut. This is the angelic version of events.
If you could sum up The Sacred History in three words, what would they be?
One of the most entertaining and important books ever written. Our history, our ancient myths and fairytales, our future; nothing is what it appears on the surface. Common threads of esoteric mysticism run through all cultures and all history and point towards a future rarely imagined. A labour of love and a work of genius.

The point that spoilt this book for me was the jumping from place to a totally different place. The only thing that kept me listening. There were some good points and supervision which kept me listening. Would I recommend this title, yes but with reservations..

Very well presented informative book. A lot of cross over that fill in gaps to some common knowledge along with less common knowledge. A very worth while read to anyone interested in esoteric subjects.

What made the experience of listening to The Sacred History the most enjoyable?
After listening to secret history of the world, I knew this book was going to leave me that little bit more enlightened.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sacred History?
A lot of this book was a broadening of the stories and understanding of the stories mentioned in the secret history of the world. this made it an interesting listen.
What three words best describe David Bauckham’s performance?
tempo "ok" understanding "ok" pronunciation of some key words "terrible"
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I listen while driving to and from work and this book suited that purpose beautifully
Any additional comments?
The pronunciation of some key words made me and get a little annoyed and cringe at times it made me wonder why this was not checked before the book went out its probably not David Bauckhams fault but still very annoying

For a man apparently so knowledgeable about the history of all things incorporeal, the author is strikingly uncritical of the historical anecdotes that he presents as fact. Every story is taken at face value. A being appears to an individual - it must be an angel, and every word it speaks is God's truth! Surely our spiritual cousins should be subjected to the same rigourous analysis of motivation etc. as their flesh-and-blood counterparts? And who, indeed, is this being claiming to be God? In a field now so ripe with excellent material from enquiring minds, this book with its unquestioning, unexplorative portrayal of standard religious history comes across as either spectactulary naive - or, possibly, as the tool of a disinformation agenda.
I found this book very inspiring, informative and well researched. The way this book approaches the contrasting views of materialism VS the idealism in relation to religious beliefs and mysticism as recorded in dogma, myth and legend. I loved this book and recommend it to any one with a passion for history, free thinking, phychology, philosophy and religious beliefs.
