Great book: The Tower of Babel by Bodie Hodge



Tower of Babel (Bodie Hodge)

Many are familiar with the Biblical account of Babel, but after the dispersal, there was a void beyond Biblical history until empires like Rome and Greece arose.

Tower of Babel Reviews AvailableAuthor Bodie Hodge researched ancient texts, critical clues and rare historic records for the purpose of defending the Biblical account of the tower of Babel. Written in layman’s terms, The Tower of Babel is an excellent way to find your cultural connection to the Bible. It is also a great reference for Biblical classes, ancient history, and apologetics training.

   Since history is one of my favourite things to study, I was quite intrigued by this book. And I was not disappointed. I have always been extremely interested in not only the history of each and every country in the world, but the origins of each civilization, the history of different ethnic groups and so on! To my delight, this book covers each of those topics, delving into incredibly complex family trees beginning with Noah and his family. I can't begin to imagine how much research a project like this took! As you read this book, you too will find yourself  immensely grateful to the author for making the geneologies of the early Old Testament clear for us! This book would be a remarkable addition to any library. I also strongly recommend homeschooling mothers to have it on hand for reference when teaching about ancient cultures.

  I must add that I found the book to be somewhat prolix at times, and it takes a bit of thought to grasp all the geneologies even so carefully explained.
Not a book for a child under the age of 13 to tackle on his own.

   As I read and often return to this book for reference, I find that one thing would greatly add to this book's usefulness and that would be an index, something which this book is lacking!  Other than that, I can hardly fine negative feedback for this interesting book.
