Biblical by Christopher Galt

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An extremely clever psychological thriller; that is really all that needs to be said. When people begin to experience vivid visions of the past, from Joan of Arc’s death to concentration camps to prehistoric monsters, some hail them as revelations from God, some dismiss them as hallucinations. Psychiatrist John Macbeth has always had trouble with his own perception of reality and he’s right in the middle of it all. Interspersed with episodes of what appear to the participants to be time travel, Macbeth’s story unfolds in a series of strange and disturbing events and builds to a startling climax. The philosophy and science behind this author’s unusual thriller make perfect sense in today’s world but his conclusions will make you question what might happen tomorrow. As I said at the start, extremely clever and well worth reading.

If you like Christopher Galt you might also like to read books by Sebastian Fitzek, Jay Martel and Matthew Klein.

Biblical by Christopher Galt

An apocalyptic thriller on an epic scale that will make you question your own reality. All around the world, people start to see things that aren't there, that cannot be. Visions, ghosts, events from the past playing out in the present. To start with, the visions are unremarkable: things misplaced in time and caught out of the corner of the eye; glimpses of long-dead family or friends. But, as time goes on, the visions become more sustained, more vivid, more widespread. More terrifying. As the visions become truly apocalyptic, some turn to religion, others to science. Only one man, driven by personal as well as professional reasons, is capable of finding the real truth. But the truth that psychiatrist John Macbeth uncovers is much, much bigger than either religion or science. A truth so big it could cost him his sanity. And his life.


Once in a while a different kind of novel comes along and changes your entire perspective. Biblical is one of those novels . . . the most compelling and intelligent thriller I have read for years * Crimesquad * Biblical isn't just entertainment, it's a philosophical study and all-round learning experience * The Compulsive Reader * Michael Crichton meets The Matrix...From compelling start to fiendish end-twist, this mind-bending book will have you wondering if you are reading it, just imagining you're reading it, or indeed whether someone else is imagining the whole damn thing for you * Daily Mail *
