'A wonderful idea, gloriously put into practice. Greg Jenner is as witty as he is knowledgeable' - Tom Holland 'You will love Greg Jenner's jolly account of how we have more in common with our ancestors than we might think ... all human life is here, amusingly conveyed in intriguing nuggets of gossipy historical anecdote' - Daily Mail Every day, from the moment our alarm clock wakes us in the morning until our head hits our pillow at night, we all take part in rituals that are millennia old. In this gloriously entertaining romp through human history - featuring new updates for the paperback edition - BBC Horrible Histories consultant Greg Jenner explores the hidden stories behind these daily routines. This is not a story of politics, wars or great events, instead Greg Jenner has scoured Roman rubbish bins, Egyptian tombs and Victorian sewers to bring us the most intriguing, surprising and sometimes downright silly nuggets from our past. It is a history of all those things you always wondered - and many you have never considered. It is the story of our lives, one million years in the making.

The Day Before Yesterday

This brilliant and ambitious book is an account of the events that made our world the place it is - geologically, climatically and ecologically - and a call for a new way of thinking about history. 'We learn', Tudge writes, 'to think only in desperately trivial twinklings of time. . . But this contracted view of time is not merely comic. It is dangerous. ' The proper sense of time, he argues, is one that allows us to appreciate the world and see what we are doing to it. If humankind is to survive, we must UNLEARN most of what made us good at dominating our environment up to now.

Is Your Faith Up To The Challenge

Can you justify your faith? To put it simply, this is a book of questions designed for two purposes. One, to challenge the integrity and convictions of oneĆ¢ s religious faith. And two, to give people of faith the opportunity to explain to people without why their beliefs are sane, rational and justifiable. Think of this as the ultimate self-help book for learning to critically think about the reasons why you choose to believe in a God. This book is dedicated to YOU, whoever you may be and regardless of whatever you may or may not believe in. This book is dedicated to all of us as an intellectually maturing society and a globally united species. If dedication to unbiased compassion is honestly our goal and we are indeed here for the happiness, well being and benefit of our fellow man, then I hope this book will be considered an invaluable tool for destroying the barriers that regularly impede our ability and desire to openly communicate and relate to one another. Is Your Faith Up to the Challenge is a mirror for the conscience and the intellect that will unrelentingly force the reader, if they are confident enough to read it, to acknowledge the honest reflection of their true beliefs. Without a doubt this will be an experience that will be difficult for many to accept as it will most assuredly shake the very foundations of the most fundamental ideas about faith and religion that millions of people build their lives on. I would imagine that it would be no understatement to say that your faith is likely to be irrevocably diminished if you have the courage to address these questions honestly and in their entirety, not because of any piece of information contained within these pages, but rather because of the answers I suspect most of us already believe in our hearts to be true. To the best of my knowledge this book, in conjunction with its related web site www.justify-your-faith.com, is a one of a kind effort designed to inspire people of all religious faiths to share the personal reasons for their beliefs and to think with their own natural intelligence and good common senses as well as their heart in order to postulate the most productive, honest and complete views of the world they live in. There is no doubt such a work will generate a fair amount of contention. I only wish that we can find the common decency in ourselves to treat our inevitable disagreements with compassion and maturity.

The ancient heresy of Gnosticism has seeped into the church and is being taught in our most influential seminaries today. This can be seen most readily in the willingness-and even determination-of leading scholars and theologians to force the doctrines of evolution into the sacred text of the Scriptures. This book looks closely at the Bible to determine whether or not evolution can be endorsed by the Word of God. It then moves on to examine how today's theologians have played tricks with the text in order to seduce ordinary Christians into embracing Gnosticism. This book is a call to God's people to eradicate this heresy and return to an honest reading of the Bible. These 'higher critics' have castrated Christianity; they themselves are spiritual eunuchs, incapable of producing any spiritual seed with which to grow the church in the coming generations. They hope to bring some reconciliation between the teachings of modern science and the traditional teachings of Scripture, but instead they only serve to instill doubt in the ordinary Christian-doubt that an ordinary believer can ever again trust his own uneducated reading of the Bible. It is sad to think that William Tyndale was martyred for bringing the Bible to the common man, while modern theologians are being praised for taking it away again.

The authors of the bestselling NOT THE HIGHWAY CODE shine a light on the extensive back catalogue of dodgy predictions through the ages. The first end of the world prediction was recorded one second after the Big Bang and since then it has become the daddy of all predictions with, to date, no one getting it right. And human beings have been around for about 200,000 years, with very little evolutionary difference, and yet we still haven't developed X-Ray eyes or the ability to fly. In this book, Baddiel and Zucker examine the predictions that have been made since the dawn of time on a variety of subjects, from the end of the world and the human body, to global warming, robots in the workplace, teleportation and space exploration. With a witty and fresh tone, they examine how these predictions came about and why, and rate them for retrospective accuracy.
