    One thought on “Fallen From Babel”

    1. Easy to read and entertaining. The author did well with the first chapter hook, the plot kept me curious as to what would happen next. However, I did not care for the little half thought out, one sided philosophical spats between Peter and Kaida. It just felt like reading an over simplified argument between an indoctrinated Christian and a so called "intellectual/spiritualist" on Facebook. So make no mistake this book sees the world through a more traditional Christian perspective, which I'm sor [...]

    2. This is an entertaining Christian time travel book. The main character, a middle-aged professor who has no religion, but sort of a new age, self-actualization philosophy, touches a vase and is transported to ancient Babylon in the time of Nebuchadnezzar and the prophet Daniel. That's as much as I'll say about the plot since I don't believe in telling too much.

    3. An ancient tower. A future evil. A skeptic trapped between.At the touch of an ancient vasehe is sent back to Babylon.Peter Thornton doesn't believe in God. Or rather, he doesn't believe in one God. " All paths are valid," he teaches his university students. One evening he ventures to the archaeology museum and touches an artifact recently unearthed from ancient Babylon.At the touch he is transported three thousand years back in time to Old Testament Babylon. Somehow he knows the language - and t [...]

    4. Great writing! I enjoyed it immensely. The details of the country; the drama at the court of the king and the people are so interesting. A fight against evil; ancient evil. A struggle for power; other magicians and sorcerers jockeying for power and position; Qurdi is only one Rim-Sin's enemies but a very powerful evil one. There are also Hebrew people, who have been taken into captivity and brought to Babylon ( according to scripture) Seems like Rim-Sin has a Hebrew concubine named Kaida; who ha [...]

    5. This is a weird book.I couldn't stop reading this book,but I did not like this book.Please don't read this book.In spite of how it is Christian with a biblical background, the witchcraft, false-god worshipping, and sorcery in this book were creepy, slightly overwhelming, and were way magnified. I did not find reading those to be glorifying God.

    6. I have never seen apologetics woven so effectively throughout a novel, or in such an interesting fashion, as in this book. I never once felt like it was being said in a preachy or overdone fashion. The arguments fit right into the circumstances of the story. Besides that, the characters are well thought out, have depth, and I love the plot. Time travel is always fun to read about and this novel is no exception. I've read this book as least five times already in less than a year. Of the books I'v [...]

    7. An enjoyable book, full of twist & turns, a touch of romance and a wonderful historical backdrop. I also enjoyed the links to the very well-known Bible story of Daniel (Beltshazzar), with a few embellishments obviously for the purpose of the story. A recommended read that deals with the ever present spiritual battle and a man's journey of belief in the one, true God.

    8. I loved this book. Tracy Higley brings the ancient past right into our present. Right from the beginnings of civilization to now, I experienced this story. It's pretty amazing how little has really changed through the centuries.

    9. I liked this one a lot. Love the settings in ancient times on so many of these Christian fiction books. This one was more entertaining than historical but a good fast paced, adventure filled story set in ancient Babylon. I'm a fan of T.L. Higley's books - they make great summer reads!

    10. Not the best by this author -- the main character is not very likable at all, and the story drags on and on.

    11. I loved this book! . It was brilliantly done how she so seamlessly entwined Historical details and Biblical truths throughout the novel . Her historical fiction is absolutely sensational!
