Overview

Babylon Rising (Babylon Rising Series #1) by Tim LaHaye, Greg Dinallo

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.

This is the first in the series. If you liked the Left Behind series, you are going to love this series. This is actually a little more intense. One of my all time favorites, up there with Lord of the Rings and Narnia. Love it.

This is an interesting series. I have read the 3 additional books available and the series is worth the read.

Babylon Rising at first to me did not seem appealing due to the fact that it was a religous book but as i was reading it i fell deeper and deeper into the story. It's thrilling and action packed but also teaches famous Bible stories in the process, allowing you to really think about life after death and your relationship with God. It was an awesome read and the rest of the series is just as captivating.

If you can stomach the dialogue between two characters, then you will enjoy this book. It has a very interesting plot, but would have been better had it not been for some repetition on certain parts, and the stating of the obvious. The characters are not so realistic as I would have liked them to be. However, it would, as I said again, have been a great read.

If ¿Babylon Rising¿ was a movie I would call it a B-movie, and a poor one a that. While there are ingredients in Babylon Rising reminiscent of the movie ¿Raiders of the Lost Ark¿ these ingredients are hewn together in such a sloppy, copycat, clichéd way, that the reader finds himself mired in one sprawling hodgepodge of a mess. If you¿re looking for 2-D opaque characters, wooden dialogue, and gaping holes in story logic, then you might like this second rate yarn. This much I can tell you, I read it from cover to cover, desperately hoping that the piece would redeem itself, at least hoping that there would be some kind of satisfying conclusion. Wrong. It whimpers out to its last tired page. I am not a Christian, so you might very well say, ¿there, that¿s why I didn¿t like it.¿ But quite honestly, the parts of this story I liked most were Michael Murphy¿s Biblical Prophecy lectures, and the flashbacks to Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar. A last thought here: I seem to remember being taught that the British Empire (not even mentioned in the book) was the world¿s first global power and the largest empire in history. Much of the story in ¿Babylon Rising¿ centers on a supposed fact that the world has only had 4 world empires: Babylonian, Persian, Greek, Roman¿and that there has never been a fifth empire despite the efforts of Ghengis Kahn, Napolean, Hitler, and Stalin. Oh well, Britain doesn't need the glory.

The first book in the Babylon Rising series grips you with Michael Murphy's fight against a lion. The vial which he then tears from the lion's neck hooks the reader into a grand mystery that could unearth possibly one of the most amazing artifacts of all time. Murphy braves everything to retrieve this ancient relic of the past, in the hope that it will show forward his faith and prove that the Bible is true. Murphy's struggle is the struggle of all Christians, the push to prove that Christ was real, was God's son, and did die to save us from our sins. If you want to see how thrilling a Christian's mission can be, I encourage you to pick up Babylon Rising by Tim Lahaye and Greg Dinallo, and jump into the conflict against darkness and deception.

Kind of dragged on, but it's not a complete waste. For his best, Babylon Rising is recommeded.

I was really looking forward to reading this book, but was so disappointed. From the first page, the plot is so implausible that it is absolutely unbelievable. The author makes huge leaps in logic to try to move the action forward. I won't be looking for the next books in the series.

I really didn't consider it a thriller. I do enjoy the author's other books and had higher hopes for this one. I am glad I read it but was a bit dissapointed.

I thought it was absolutely wonderful. Just like another person posted, I was looking for something to read after reading all 12 left behind books in two months. I found this book to be very exciting and I stayed on the 'edge of my seat' most of the time. It made me dig into the book of Daniel and search for things on my own. Maybe that's why I liked this book so much, it made me evaluate my own spiritual walk and made me dig a little deeper to find other things in the Bible that I had read but never really maintained. EXCELLENT, can't wait for The Secret of Ararat!
