Publisher's Description

Study the real-life event of the Tower of Babel and its impact today. In today's culture, the battle over Genesis 1-11 is raging on. One of the key battle points is the account of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11. Many today, even within the church, attack this account as mythology or that it has little to no value in history and needs to be reinterpreted. Do their claims stand up? Not at all Don't be deceived, come and learn what the world has tried to hide from you: Was the Tower of Babel real and what did it look like? Where does your ancestry come from? What about the great ages of the patriarchs and how does that relate to pagan ancestor worship? The world's religion of evolution and millions of years has done what they can to suppress ancient history and try to "rewrite it." Sadly, the next generation is being taught this evolutionary make-believe history (often called "revisionist history").

    Tower of Babel

    I was drawn in right away with the first chapter, How Do You Pronounce Babel, Anyway?. It seems like a rather unimportant topic to be worthy of a whole chapter, but it goes show that we are still affected by the language division that occurred at Babel. Hodge also uses it to show how hung up we get on the details and tend not to focus on the bigger picture of what led to the dispersion, sin and rebellion against God. If language roots are not as exciting for you, keep reading because it only gets better.

    Using the Bible as the foundation for truth, Hodge goes on to address many of the controversies and criticisms of the biblical account of of Babel. I was amazed at the amount of research that went into this.

    Some of the topics included in the book are:

    What are the attacks on the biblical account and how are the truths revealed.

    Disobedience

    When and where did the scattering occur?

    What did the tower look like, was it complete and what was its purpose?

    Where did all of the people go and how did they get there?

    He also discusses many questions about individuals pre and post flood including life span and ancestry.

    Once I hit Chapter 17 I was astonished at the amount of information provided. He took the descendants of Noah, from the Table of Nations, and researched where each of them went after the dispersion. I will admit that I tend to skim over Genesis 10 and other areas where genealogies are listed in the Bible, but I lingered on this one chapter for much too long and I am sure I will go back to it again and again.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. The amount of information contained within the pages was overwhelming, in a good way. There is so much to discuss, that I could never cover it all within a short review. It presents so much truth to God's Word, through external sources, that is makes Genesis and our history undeniable.

    I first found Bodie Hodge's writing at Answers In Genesis, and his articles have helped me and been a blessing to many Creationists.

    He has now written a new book "The Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of our Ancestors."

    When I saw this book coming in the Spring review list for New Leaf Publishing Group I jumped at the chance, and I found that this is a very interesting, thorough, and clearly written book.

    As Creationists, we know that Genesis One through Eleven is under attack. Evolutionary ideologies are infiltrating the church, and the historical events of Creation, the Fall, and the Flood are being reinterpreted or rejected. We understand that we need to teach and defend the account of Creation, the Fall and the Flood as recorded in Scripture. We also need to defend another key moment in Earth's history: the Tower of Babel.

    Bodie Hodge has placed scientific discoveries in the context of the Biblical narrative, giving us Creationist models and theories to help us understand history in light of Scripture.

    Bodie Hodge's book does an excellent job showing us how Babel unlocks the answers to many questions: about languages and the origin of writing, about Post-Flood civilizations, about tribes and nations, about post-Babel travel to other countries.

    This book piqued my curiosity about all of these things, and Mr. Hodge has included notes and suggestions for further research so that we can keep studying, using this book as an introduction.

    For example,

    Did you know that off Japan's coast is an underwater step pyramid that sits on an area of land that was exposed during the after the flood ice age? It is believed that the descendants of Babel built that step pyramid as when they settled there on that land bridge for a time during their travels to other places. After reading this, I went online and looked up photos of the underwater step pyramid, my curiosity sparked by this book.

    And there are many other things mentioned in The Tower of Babel to spark the imagination and a love of history, such as charts of all the flood legends worldwide and the different genealogies that trace back to Noah and his family.

    Truly, when we study the history in Scripture, we are studying our ancestors. This will be a great high-school level study in Creation science, history and anthropology. Thank you so much to New Leaf Press Group and Bodie Hodge for my copy to review!

    This upcoming school year, we are back to year 1 history- Ancients in our 4 year cycle. I'd been planning the upcoming year and when hearing Master Books was looking for reviewers to review Bodie Hodge's new book "Tower of Babel, the cultural history of our ancestors" I was SUPER excited. Unlike Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Chinese, etc. times, the earliest history is a bit hard to cover, due to lack of written resources. This book is a big step in the direction of remedying that problem.

    My thoughts on the book-- Author Bodie Hodge Did an amazing job bringing to life the history of the peoples of the tower of Babel. This book is engaging and informative, seeking to answer, and succeeding, the questions:

    How do you pronounce Babel?

    Is the Tower of Babel real, and does it MATTER?

    When and where did the scattering of peoples occur? Where?

    What did the Tower look like?

    How can all the languages currently in existence be accounted for?

    What was the origin of writing?

    What was the original language?

    "Tower of Babel answers these questions and many more in ways I didn't even realize possible. I just didn't realize all that information was "out there" it just isn't available in mainstream media. I love the use of visual aides like diagrams, charts, pictures, etc. For a visual person like me, this is very helpful for understanding complex information dense material. Nonetheless, i found the book to be tenable, and particularly informative. I plan to use it as a read aloud next year with all my school-agers, who will then be ranging from 2nd grade-9th.

    Disclaimer- I received this book as a free review copy in exchange for posting a truthful review. The thoughts contained within this post are my honest opinion.

    Master Books has never failed to disappoint in the books they publish. Author, Bodie Hodge, takes the reader through impeccable research and Biblical truths that reveal the hand of God that moved people across the globe after mass disobedience on the plains of Shinar (which means "between two rivers").

    Bodie Hodge details how the true history of the Tower of Babel is being attacked: evolution-based racism, mythological ideologies, and the reinterpretation of historical events into philosophical ideas. Each attack is on the authenticity and authority of God's inspired Word and attempts to hold man's ideas higher than the almighty Creator God.

    It's both fascinating and horrifying to read that the Tower of Babel began construction about 106 years after Noah's worldwide flood. To think that God's grace saved Noah's family, yet their descendents went right back to the sinfulness of their forefathers; the very sin that destroyed them. It reminds me that none of us are immune to sin and it's destruction on our lives and those around us.

    Mr. Hodge expands on different areas that are quite interesting. He discusses (in detail) the difference between the continental shift that occurred during Noah's flood and the splitting up of people into various new lands, the possible location of the Tower of Babel (Iraq), how much of the tower was built, Babel's purpose in being built, who tore it down in years to come, where languages came from, genealogies back to Noah's time, the ice age (which peaked about 400 years after Babel) and migration, where various families/groups moved/settled, extra-Biblical supports for the Tower of Babel/dispersion of our ancestors, why people now don't live as long as they did pre-flood, the origin of written languages, dispersion at Babel to gathering of saints at Pentecost (to spread the gospel message), the ancient book of Job, and much more highly informative research.

    If you have ever thought that the Tower of Babel is inconsequential to the world today or if you are the person who has always wanted to know more about Babel; I encourage you to read this book. It is full of illustrations, maps, and easy-to-follow genealogies that will keep you interested from beginning to end. I'll have to make time to read it again just to soak up all the information available. It's a wealth of research and Biblical truths, confirmed by both the Bible and sources outside God's Word.

    I received this book from New Leaf Publishing in exchange for my honest review. I hope you will take the time to find/read Tower of Babel for yourself. A review could never come close to revealing the depth of knowledge contained in these pages.

    I recently received a book entitled Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors by Bodie Hodge. It is a new book, just published by Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group. I have always been a fan of Master Books, and am very interested in history, so was very excited to get the book and started reading it as soon as it arrived.

    Wow! I only thought that I had done a thorough study of the Tower of Babel, until I started reading this book! Mr. Hodge does a very excellent job of defending the accuracy of Scripture. In the book, he covers everything from the pronunciation ("bay-bel" or "ba-bel") to Christ at Babel.

    I particularly enjoyed the fact that in the book there are a lot of maps and charts detailing how the people of the world probably migrated from Babel. The book also details historical events and how they fit in with the tower of Babel. These events include the breaking up of the continents and the ice age, as well as the date for the book of Job and the ages of the patriarchs.

    And, Mr. Hodge does not shy away from answering the attacks on Genesis 11, and showing the effects of these attacks. This book also gives the reader plenty of resources to counter those attacks and defend the truth.

    The only thing I would really add to the book is a good index which makes it easier for reference.

    The author very much takes the Bible literally, and defends the accuracy of the Scriptures. This book is a great addition to my library, and would work well for anyone who is interested in history. It is a great read for those who are involved in church work - whether pastor or teacher, and would work well as an addition to any homeschool curriculum. Get a copy for yourself, and another to give as a gift!
