Review:Tower of Babel by:Bodie Hodge

Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors
About the Book:
The Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors reveals our shared ancestry as never before! 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. Now, discover the truth of these people groups and their civilizations that spread across the earth and trace their roots back to Babel as well as to the sons and grandsons of Noah.
Many of today’s scholars write off what occurred at the Tower of Babel as mythology and deny that it was a historical event. Beginning with the Biblical accounts, author Bodie Hodge researched ancient texts, critical clues, and rare historic records to help solve the mystery of what became of the failed builders of Babel. For the purpose of defending the Bible, Hodge presents these and other vital historical facts surrounding this much-debated event. Teens and older can use this layman’s reference for Biblical classes, ancient history, apologetics training, and to realize their own cultural connection to the Bible.
A speaker and researcher for Answers in Genesis, Bodie Hodge is known for his contribution to and authoring of other Christian apologetics titles including:

My Review:
 I was not aware until reading this book that there are many people out there that either don't believe the Tower of Babel existed or they believe that it is just an example or metaphor that is alive and well in today's culture. I believe whatever the Bible states so to me existed and I believe that it shows what God did to some that were trying real hard to work against Him. The author in this book has provided an in depth study of the Tower of Babel study and I found it to be quite interesting. He begins with racism and how any good and Bible believing Christian should completely stand against it. Which I have always explained to my children when questioned as to why there are different races or where did everyone come from? We would go to the Bible and discuss this story.

 If you are like most of us and have decided to read the Bible from cover to cover or even just read the sections that contain the genealogies. You would probably just sweetly and indiscreetly skip over those. After all that is ALOT of begetting, but I digress. Well in this book the author takes you through them and helps you to understand them better. Not only will the tracings reveal the founders of some of the earliest civilizations known to history. But you may also locate and find your own families heritage.
