    After reading the Left Behind series I was curious about some of the other books written by the same authors so I picked up Babylon Rising and decided to give it a try It was an excellent book Babylon Rising introduces the reader to a biblical archaeologist named Michael Murphy and sends us along on his adventures to find artifacts that will authenticate the stories of the Bible In this first book in the series Murphy is led by a mysterious man named Methuselah on a dangerous treasure hunt to find the Golden Head of Nebuchadnezzar However there is another powerful and deadly group named the Seven that are on this uest and they will stop at nothing to attempt to stop Murphy The story in this book moves at a lightning pace and Murphy's character reminded me of a religious Indiana Jones The biblical references are prominent but never overbearing and at times the descriptions made me feel as if I were right there on the hunt The good versus evil theme of the book is well written and the ending left me eager to read the next book in the series I would strongly recommend this book to any fan of Christian fiction or any reader who enjoys a good adventure story

    If you don't believe in God this book might just change your mind This book is about Michael Murphy a professorarcheologist who dedicates his life to authenticate the bible by finding biblical artifacts In this book Murphy focuses on finding the brazen serpent that was given to Moses when he was in the desert and thought to have been destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon It is a fast paced book without any dull moments This book is filled with action history love and death adventure and lectures about the bible as Murphy teaches his class at Preston university and talks to Bob Wagner the pastor of his church

    Babylon Rising is an adventure featuring Michael Murphy an Indiana Jones like character who is an archaeologist Bible scholar and professor all rolled up into one manly man Unlike Indiana Jones Murphy's main passion in life is to seek out real artifacts to support the writings in the Bible The story begins with Murphy engaged in an deadly challenge to obtain an archaeological artifact which gives him some valuable clues about a bronze serpent reputed to be from the era of DanielWhile there are a few seemingly impossible events what I loved about this book is the wonderful subplots and tensions Murphy's relationship with a colleague named Isis is so subtle Isis seems to change throughout the story yet we are not completely sure what is happening The characters are are very interesting I really enjoyed reading this book and will be reading the second in the series as well

    The start to the latest series by Left Behind author Tim LaHaye Babylon Rising is an fast moving tale of history intrigue religion molded into one The main focus of the story is Professor Michael Murphy who searches for an artifact that could prove the existence of the prophet Daniel The story also revolves around a group called the Seven whose ringleader Talon tortures Shane Barrington uses him to aid in terrorist activities for their group against the Catholic Church The story itself is an arc itself covering the globe highlighting the bias in the media the lengths that people will go for anything It's as uick moving enjoyable as the previous books by the author hopefully is a sign of better things to come in this shorter series

    February 8 2013Currently I am on page 129 of Babylon Rising Something that has stuck out so far in this book is the main character Michael Murphy I admire him the most because he sticks to his faith no matter the circumstances He has been faced with many tough challenges including going against a lion ridicule for his faith at the college he teaches at and potential loss of job and yet he still keeps a positive attitude and his face looking up Even though this book is fiction his motivation to live out his faith gives me energy and encouragement to live out mine I finished this book and I loved it I'm waiting in the public library to get the next one and continue on in this series

    Hooray The Christian Right has found a charismatic professorhero who saves the world from the evil international group conspiring to unite the world under one global order under Satan Part Indiana Jones part Robert Langdon and 100% evangelical Christian Michael Murphy fights intolerant college administrators the manipulative mass media and a very very evil man with a fondness for falcons while trying to prove the truth and prophecy written in the BibleThis is a good alternative read for people who think Dan Brown is sacrilegious and will burn in hell and who don't mind incomplete sentences

  7. Angela Angela says:

    This is a great book for someone who likes archaeology like me Besides the suspense I kept reading to find out if they would be able to get the wanted artifact The entire Babylon Rising Series is good

    Even if you absolutely hate books you most likely have heard of the Left Behind series For many people that bestselling apocalyptic saga is all they have experienced andor know of when it comes to the world of Christian fiction That's actually a shame in my opinion; although the story contained in those books is good Jerry Jenkins' shoddy writing style made it hard for me a longtime reader of Christian literature to stomach even three books' worth which amounts to less than twenty five percent of the series Not only that but there are much better Christian novelists Melody Carlson Frank Peretti Bill Myers Rachel Hauck Bodie and Brock Thoene Janice Thompson etc that don't have the name recognition the Left Behind authors haveAfter reading that you might expect me to give Babylon Rising a negative review but I won't because it actually was very good Although it was created by Tim LaHaye who also created Left Behind Greg Dinallo's wordsmithing is far superior to Jerry Jenkins' any day of the week This is actually my second time reading it; I found the entire series at a yard sale a few years ago and found the entire series to be riveting especially the last two or three volumes This introductory novel doesn't have as much action as the latter three volumes but that's only because LaHaye and Dinallo need to set up the story for the later volumes Think of this one as the backstory for a video or computer game as told through an opening cinema seuence or in the game's manual; it may not be as exciting as actually playing it but you need it to understand how to reach the endingEDIT I could write another review but why reinvent the wheel? I pretty much feel the same way as I did rereading this five years ago

    I though it was cool that an author could think of two different alternatives to the end times I would write just one and stick with ithe's must have a good imagination I personally loved the book The pacing was great and the first chapter grabbed you by the hand and took you inThe pyramid of the wind was totally cool And Methusalah sp? sounded kinda creepyI wonder how he got all of his artifacts?The golden serpant was a need idea but the idea that the statue of the King of Babalyon was weird Personally if I knew that someone could become evil and end the world with it I would hide it after I found it not put it on display like Murphy did

  10. Anita Rudd Anita Rudd says:

    One of the problems with Christian thrillers is that the bad guys aren't too bad but the good guys are sugary sweet They are completely unrelatable to people in the real world or the Bible The Bible is filled with flawed people chosen by God to complete some task This book is not as good as the Left Behind series I as the reader simply don't care what happens to the main characters They will win in the end but there is not enough suspense to make me read 3 books
