Publisher's Summary

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.

Babylon Risible

This is possibly the worst book I've ever bought. How did La Haye's editor ever allow this mess?

The characters and action are low-grade comic book. Behaviours range from sanctimonious to psycho-hysterical, with none of it remotely credible. Even the lion doesn't act believably. I found myself wondering whether it was a self parody, like "True Lies" -- but without any wit.

Multiplying the florid, overblown and hackneyed events is La Haye's mind numbing repetitiveness, as if by belaboring his pseudo-facts he can somehow make them sound true.

When he compounded these abuses by adding pompous proselytizing, I brought out the gong.

What a waste of a precious Audible credit.

I feel some Indiana Jones in this fine book. Action, suspense and a tremendous plot. It will keep you glued to your computer or headphones.
