Tim LaHaye has dedicated the first in his new Babylon Rising series to the author of Ben-Hur, which, through the book and the film, taught him that 'fiction could be both thrilling and instructive at the same time and could appeal to both a secular and a Christian audience.' With over 54 million copies of his own Left Behind books in print, Tim LaHaye has already shown that he can rise to this challenge. The fast-paced thriller series Babylon Rising is set to capture imaginations once again with his unique blend of action and biblical prophecy.
Set in the present day, Babylon Rising brings us an unlikely hero in the shape of Michael Murphy, biblical archaeologist, a man with the courage, faith and physical daring it takes to challenge evil head on. A quest for artefacts which will prove the prophecies of the book of Daniel takes on a dangerous edge when it becomes clear that evil powers are racing Murphy to the prize. Does he have what it takes to escape death and beat them to it?
