Summary

What place do the faithful have in a faithless world? Imagine you woke up in a cold sweat because you had a vision of the future but couldn’t see how you fit into it. How would you find your purpose in it all?

A self-marooned recluse, Dr. Noah McAdams thought he had escaped a world gone wrong only to be caught up in the very system he was fleeing. A man of deep regrets, he thought he had buried his past only to see it resurrected before his very eyes.

The Babel Resurgence looms. The unique moment in history when humanity reaches its God-given potential. A dream come true for some, a nightmare for those who know the truth. This time, can the world avoid the disaster that comes from the power of human potential being wielded without regard to human purpose?

With time running out, Noah must discover his purpose in this dark grand scheme before the Babel Resurgence separates him from everything he has ever known and everyone he has ever loved.

Join the ancient quest to unveil purpose aligned with potential.

what if the tower of babel was a spaceship?

pretty much says it all. the story focuses on two or three major characters as they struggle with the moral and spiritual dilemmas of whether or not they join a mission to travel to the center of the galaxy. the narrator's grandfatherly voice really makes conversations and situations that would be ridiculous otherwise fairly entertaining. it's the kind if Christian fiction I don't often read but tend to enjoy. all the good characters are absurdly earnest only suffering from wounds and insecurities and basically free from sin, everyone has some kind of deep wisdom to impart, while the bad characters are all (there being really only one) miserable egomaniacs. there is a lot of discussion of how evil the world is becoming but since all the major characters are basically perfect, we never ever get a sense of that. It's all sunshine and rainbows for the most part. Still. if you need a little peace and joy to the world for a bit, this is not a bad listen.

Near future sci fi, smooth prose, great story

I enjoyed this story very much. The writing is clear and smooth, with a well thought out storyline, which leads to a great listening experience.

As this is obviously the beginning of a series there is alot of world building and character definition, with an ending that leaves alot of plot lines open.

The main character is a Christian. Don't let that keep you from a good read. Mr. Cole does a great job of explaining his beliefs in a way I found fresh and appealing. It doesn't get in the way of the story and isn't shoved down your throat, so Christian readers will find it a refreshing change from much of so called "Christian fiction" out there, and people of other faiths or no particular faith won't be put off or feel preached to, IMO.

My only real complaint isn't about the writing, the story, or the narration. As someone who listens to audio books on a longer commute, I burned through this in a few days. Mr. Cole is encouraged the make the sequels longer! The story and premise can certainly support it.
