Babel: The Story of the Tower and the Rebellion of Man

“Babel” by Brennan S. McPherson

Biblical Fiction

Review copy from the author

My rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

About the book:

A sweeping, epic retelling of the story of the Tower of Babel. . . 

More than a century after the worldwide flood, Noah, now the forefather of the living world, works peacefully in his vineyard until tragedy tears apart his relationship with his son, Ham. 

Years later, dark prophetic dreams inextricably link him with a young man carrying scars from a painful past, and a young woman who longs for acceptance yet harbor secrets darker than either of them imagine. 

Will Noah face the role he played in the slow unraveling of his family? Or will everything collapse when they meet the evil attempting to swallow the world at. . . the Tower of Babel?

 

My Thoughts:

 
I love Biblical Fiction, but I can’t say I’ve ever read any centered around Noah, or the Tower of Babel. Therefor this was a unqie story, and written with delightful talent.
Everything leading up to the fall of the Tower of Babel was so fascinating and the characters themselves so complex.
I felt it was a very good representation of an event we don’t read a lot about in Biblical Fiction.
There was a lot of pain, and growth, and understanding even amidst a time of turmoil.
There were a couple aspects that were disturbing, as they deal with the utter darkness and depravity of pagan-worship and what happens when a person turns so wholeheartedly away from the Almighty. But they were written well, and necessary to the storyline.
Truly, this book was very fascinating, and I enjoyed reading it and seeing how it all unfolded. The ending thread of redemption was lovely, and I felt I became attached to the central characters through the reading of it.
Definitely will be reading more from this talented author!
(I’d also like to add that I appreciated the “note from the author” in the beginning very much – I always respect when an author turns everything back to God. )
Recommended for ages 18+

I am a peculiar treasure who is passionately in love with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love writing, reading, knife/tomahawk-throwing, and letter-writing, among other things. :)
