Overview

Tim LaHaye created the Left Behind Series, which has become one of the most popular fiction series of all time. Those novels, with more that 50 million copies sold, presented a unique combination of suspense and substance drawn from his lifelong study of Biblical prophecy.

Now Tim LaHaye has created a new series that begins with Babylon Rising. The novels in this new series are even faster-paced thrillers based on prophecies that are not covered in the Left Behind books and that have great relevance to the events of today.

Babylon Rising introduces a terrific new hero for our time. Michael Murphy is a scholar of Biblical prophecy, but not the sedate and tweedy kind. Murphy is a field archaeologist who defies danger to fearlessly hunt down and authenticate ancient artifacts from Biblical times. His latest discovery is his most amazing--but it will send him hurtling from a life of excavation and revelations to a confrontation with the forces of the greatest evil. For the latest secret uncovered by Michael Murphy accelerates the countdown to the time of the end for all mankind.

I hated this book! The character development was non-existant and the story outlandish. All of which I can handle if the religous message had not been soooo obvious.

I did not care for this book. It was slow, the reading was bull and I was board.

This tale is told with absolutely no ear for dialogue. The main character (not the reader) speaks so woodenly it was painful whenever he came on stage (especially the scene where he discusses Christ with his Saudi friend). Also, there are too many scenes which seem simply designed for the author to lecture on some point about Bible history (instead of advancing the plot). These interludes slowed the pace of the story to a halt.

If you enjoyed the Left Behind Series this is another good series from Tim Lahaye.
