Now Tim LaHaye has created a new series that begins with Babylon Rising. The novels in this new series are even faster-paced thrillers based on prophecies that are not covered in the Left Behind books and that have great relevance to the events of today.
Babylon Rising introduces a terrific new hero for our time. Michael Murphy is a scholar of Biblical prophecy, but not the sedate and tweedy kind. Murphy is a field archaeologist who defies danger to fearlessly hunt down and authenticate ancient artifacts from Biblical times. His latest discovery is his most amazing, but it will send him hurtling from a life of excavation and revelations to a confrontation with the forces of the greatest evil. For the latest secret uncovered by Michael Murphy accelerates the countdown to the time of the end for all mankind.

Fast paced thriller that kept me entertained and looking for excuses to listen to more. Bit of Bible bashing included, but if you can live with that its a great read(listen!) with lots of twists. Went and bought the 2 sequels on the strength of the first book.
"Very long winded!"
One listens, waits and hopes for adventure but all is very predictable.
Probably best listened to in abridged format. I have given up half way through part two!
I found this audiobook very disappointing and just not to my taste at all. It's the sort of storey dreamed up by American evangelist preachers with fake tans and overly coiffured hair. The storey line is not believable and full of unwanted moralizing so that by the end I didn't care if the too-good-to-believe hero was eaten by lions or not.
The story is un-believable, but fairly fast paced due to this. Things just happen and fall into place. One review refered to 'bible bashing', but the story is just the opposite. It's like being at a Sunday surmon, great if that is your thing. I felt I was being preached at.
I will not be listening to the sequel....nuf said.
"Worth a listen"
I really enjoyed this audio book- it kept me gripped until the end. The characters are a little cheesy and over simplified, but it's not unbearable.
Not quite up to Left Behind standard, but still good.. I'm going ahead with book two anyway.
