Tim LaHaye, creator of the phenomenally successful Left Behind(R) books, continues his newest top-ten New York Times
bestselling series: Babylon Rising. The heroic Michael Murphy--"cool, brainy, sexy, and valiant"*--hurtles into his
second whirlwind adventure in pursuit of Biblical artifacts.
In Babylon Rising Tim LaHaye began an adventure series that he calls even more exciting than his 50-million-plus-copy bestselling Left Behind series. Readers agreed, as the novel debuted as a top-ten New York Times bestseller.
Now, in the second Babylon Rising novel, Biblical scholar, archaeologist, professor, and hero for our times Michael Murphy is in pursuit of one of the most mysterious and sought-after of all Biblical artifacts, Noah's Ark. As Murphy undertakes his death-defying quest to ascend Mount Ararat, he will discover dramatic revelations of Biblical prophecies and be drawn even closer to the most terrifying evil about to be unleashed on all mankind.
With The Secret on Ararat following close
on the heels of Glorious Appearing, the fastest-selling Left Behind novel ever, Tim LaHaye will further prove to be one of the most fascinating and popular storytellers
of our time.

Worth the Time

As a fan of the Left Behind series, I find this book satisfies my craving for more from Lahaye. I accidentally jumped into the middle of this series, and was easily able to jump right into the fun by the 2nd or 3rd chapter. The religious references are appreciated by me, but I honestly believe that the story line, characters, settings and plot can be appreciated by most readers.

It is interesting to see people complain that this book references the bible alot because this author is know for his christian beliefs and background. I thought the book was great and commend the author for writing a book to make learning about Noah's ark so enjoyable.

If you liked the popular series "Left Behind" you may enjoy the new series that Tim LeHaye has started. I would recommend you listen to or read the first volume before you read this, the second one, because it follows a defiinite story. Michael Murphy is sort of a religious Indiana Jones and he gets himself into all sorts of exotic and funny adventures. If you aren't religious you may find some of the story unbelievable. I thought the adventure was worth it though.

I thought the story contained too much religion for an agnostic listener.

As a fictional story it was very well written and easy listening. It kept me intrigued. It has a definite religious message, but for some that may be ok. It does not detract from the enjoyment of the story.
