Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors - Review

The Tower of Babel
If you're like me, you probably think of bad guys building a big tower and God confusing their languages. What else is there?

Well it turns out there is more to the story than first meets the eye. Bodie Hodge reveals the often overlooked truths to this world changing event in his book, Tower of Babel. If you've ever wanted to explore this subject in greater detail, then this is the book for you.

The book is arranged in concise, easy to read chapters, covering everything from the why, when, how, and now what. Hodge, takes us deep into this ancient and mysterious world, unlocking that which may be hidden from modern readers.

What surprised me most, was the ability to follow the different languages and people after the dispersion. Up until recent times, scholars utilized the Bible and the account of Babel to study the movements of ancient man. It is amazing the amount of data we have that corroborates the biblical narrative. I can assure you, that I never learned that in public school!

I highly recommend the, Tower of Babel, to any who are curious of this monumental moment in mankind's history.

I would like to thank Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group, for this free review copy.
