Peter Thornton doesnt believe in God. Or rather, he doesnt 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 discovered from ancient Babylon.
At the touch he is transported three thousand years back in time to Old Testament Babylon. Somehow he knows the languageand the people know him as Rim-Sin, sorcerer and high priest to the gods of Babylon. The moment he arrives he is accused of murdera murder Rim-Sin committedand he must run for his life.
Against the backdrop of Nebuchadnezzars court at its zenith, he and rival sorcerers vie with Beltshazzar, the Jewish upstart, for the kings favor. As Peter scrambles to get back to the twenty-first century he encounters a lovely young woman who has some disturbingly powerful arguments about the God of the Bible.
Peter wont get home until he has fallen from his pride. Fallen from his polytheism. Fallen from Babel.
