Completely Revised Second Edition with 23 new killings from the Apocrypha.
Drunk With Blood includes a separate account for each of God's 158 killings. These stories fill the pages of the Bible, yet they are seldom read in church and are ignored by most Bible believers, which is a shame because God is so proud of his killings:
"I kill...I wound...I will make mine arrows drunk with blood and my sword shall devour flesh." Deuteronomy 32:39-42
You've probably heard of a few of God's killings. Noah's Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, David and Goliath, maybe. But there are over 150 others that are unknown to pretty much everyone, believer and nonbeliever alike.
Did you know, for example, that God:
Forced friends and family to kill each other for dancing naked around Aaron's golden calf?
Burned Aaron's sons to death for offering him strange fire?
Burned complainers to death, forced the survivors to eat quail until it literally came out their noses, sent "fiery serpents" to bite people for complaining about the lack of food and water, and killed 14,700 for complaining about his killings?
Buried alive those that opposed Moses (along with their families)?
Burned 250 men to death for burning incense?
Rewarded Phinehas for throwing a spear though the bellies of an inter-tribal couple while they were having sex?
Ordered, assisted in, or approved of dozens of complete genocides?
Accepted human sacrifice in the cases of Jephthah's daughter and Saul's seven sons?
Helped Samson murder 30 men for their clothes, slaughter 1,000 with the jawbone of an ass, and kill 3,000 civilians in a suicide terrorist attack?
Smote the Philistines of several cities with hemorrhoids in their secret parts?
Killed a man for trying to keep the ark of the covenant from falling and 50,070 for looking into the ark?
Approved when David bought his first wife with 200 Philistine foreskins?
Killed King Saul for not killing every Amalekite as he told him to do?
Slowly killed a baby to punish King David for committing adultery?
Killed 70,000 because David had a census that he (or Satan) told him to do?
Sent a lion to kill a prophet for believing another prophet's lie, another lion to kill a man for not smiting a prophet, and some more lions to kill people that didn't fear him enough?
Killed 450 religious leaders who lost a prayer contest with Elijah and burned 102 men to death for asking Elijah to come down from his hill?
Sent two bears to rip apart 42 boys for making fun of Elisha's bald head?
Killed 27,000 Syrians by having a wall fall on them, sent an angel to kill 185,000 sleeping soldiers, interfered in human battles to kill a half million Israelites and a million Ethiopian soldiers?
Killed King Ahab for not killing a captured king, and then sent King Jehu on a series of mass murders to kill all of Ahab's family and friends who had ever "pissed against a wall?"
Killed Jehoram by making his bowels fall out?
Killed Job's ten children in a bet with Satan?
Killed Ezekiel's wife and told him not to mourn her?
Killed Ananias and Sapphira for not giving Peter all their money?
Killed King Herod by feeding him to worms?
All of these killings, and more, are found in the Bible, and their stories are told in the 2nd Edition of Drunk With Blood.

More die at the hand of God than by Satan
Steve Wells' "Drunk with Blood - God's Killings in the Bible" is a less than positive take on the Bible, not for the feint of heart faithful. When last did you read your Bible with an open mind? The capricious violence is staggering (not to mention the slavery, misogyny debauchery and homophobia) . Whereas the number of people God kills adds into the millions, Satan comes in with a pitiful score, barely breaking into two digits.
Along the way you learn that all the attributable evil spirits in the Bible are released by God, none bySatan. Really? They didn't teach me that at Sunday School.
The audio book is well narrated but I suspect I'll also want a digital copy that I can thumb through and to copy-paste from.

Hard to say. It is a very unique book.
The true to the fact depiction of what the Bible actually says, rather than the sanitized and ultimately false depiction of the Bible as a work of love.
Again hard to say, although Wells's accounts of the stories of Samson, Job and, Jesus are chilling.
Impossible not to. Why anyone would believe what is written in the Bible or would want to have such a god escapes me.
I think this book creates a problem for anyone who ascribes to Judaism or Christianity. The only way that most Abrahamic theists can rationalize this litany of brutality and murder is by denial, (self)deception and, dishonesty. This type of book exposes the Bible for what it is, an emperor's clothes document.
