Babylon is the epic saga of an exiled Judean family, set against the deadly ambition of Nebuchadnezzar’s royal court and the struggle of Biblical prophets and scribes to keep the Hebrew faith alive.

586 BCE. Everything changes for Sarah the day Nebuchadnezzar’s army storms Jerusalem. In an instant, her peaceful life on the farm is ripped away: her city sacked, her temple desecrated, her people enslaved. Marched across cruel desert sands to Babylon, Sarah and the remaining Judean people must find a way to keep their faith alive in a new and unforgiving home.

Displaced within an empire of strange gods and unimaginable wealth, Sarah and her descendants bear witness to palace intrigue, betrayal, brutal sacrifice, regicide, and a new war brewing in the east. Through every trial, the Hebrew people attempt to preserve their religion. Uri, Sarah’s son, transcribes incredible stories of prophets and visions, Creation and Exodus—stories that establish the central tenets of the Hebrew faith.

A family saga spanning three generations of exile, captivity, and return, Babylon weaves a powerful narrative of hope and perseverance during one of the darkest and least-explored eras of Jewish history.
