Format: Paperback
Tim LaHaye is the creator of the best selling Left Behind series. This is another book (the first in a series) that is based on biblical prophecy. The Left Behind books were based on the prophecies of Revelation. Babylon Rising is based on the prophecies found in the book of Daniel. The other main difference is that Babylon Rising takes place before the Rapture (the starting even of Left Behind). In the introduction to this book, Tim LaHaye writes that he is more excited about this book (and the coming series) than he has been about any other project that he has worked on. He is teaming with Greg Dinallo to write a fast paced, biblical based, adventure/thriller. LaHaye feels that the hero of this story, Michael Murphy is a fantastic protagonist, one who we should be excited to read about.
Michael Murphy is a biblical archaeologist. That means that he finds ancient artifacts and uses them to authenticate the Bible. For some time now, he has been given tips by a man who calls himself "Methuselah". Methuselah gives Murphy a tip on how to find an artifact, but at the same time he sets traps around this artifact that could easily kill Murphy. Michael accepts this and goes along with it because every biblical artifact has turned out to be genuine. Michael Murphy seems to be cut out of the Indiana Jones mold, only with a strong Christian morality.
When Murphy finds the latest artifact that Methuselah lays before him, it sets him on a path to confront a great Evil (with a capital E). We are also introduced to the other side, an organization known as the Seven, and their murderous henchman named Talon. As Murphy searches for a biblical artifact known as the Brazen Serpent, an endtime prophecy of Daniel begins to unfold.

From the first couple of sentences I was hooked! Tim LaHayes ability to draw you into the story is evident from the first chapter. I couldn't put the book down I had to know what happened next. I love the use of biblical background to the story it makes me want to read the account of Daniel and look at it with new eyes. Anything that makes you want to pick up your Bible and read it is excellent in my books. I would reccommend this to anyone and in fact have already passed the book on for others to read. Can't wait for the next installment to arrive.

I READ ALL THE LEFT BEHIND SERIES OF BOOKS AS THEY CAME OUT AND THEY WERE EXCELLENT IN EVERY WAY ON THE WHOLE.BABYLON RISING IN MY OPINION IS EVEN BETTER. THE STORY LINES ARE LESS OBVIOUS AND FAR MORE EXCITING I FEEL. THERE'S A LOT GOING ON WITH EVERY PAGE YOU READ SO IT'S CERTAINLY NOT A BOOK WITH A FEW BORING PAGES EVERY SO OFTEN. A GREAT BOOK WITH FANTASTIC STORY LINES WHICH KEEP YOU GRIPPED CONTINUOUSLY. GO GET IT AND HAVE A GOOD READ.

Ok. I've removed my previous one star review after re-reading the book (my first "reading" was listening to the audiobook).

I still think the story (involving an Illuminati-type group launching a conspiracy against evangelical Christians, and an assassin who murders people with falcons trained to attack and kill people) is ludicrous, the characters silly and the dialogue laughable. But I've got to admit that these... "qualities" actually make the book rather amusing, in a "so bad it's good" kind of way.

It's common knowledge that Tim LaHaye doesn't do any actual writing on any of "his" novels, and this time he's found another hack co-writer in Greg Dinallo.

Anybody looking for a good adventure novel should look elsewhere. But those looking for an example of brainless Christian fiction at its worst may find "Babylon Rising" amusing, although it does contain some rather slow sequences.
