Item description for Fallen From Babel (Realms) by T. L. Higley...
Overview A university professor who teaches his students that all spiritual paths are valid touches an artifact that send him back to ancient Babylon where he is tried for murder in Nebuchadnezzar's court.
Publishers Description Peter Thornton doesn't believe in God. Or rather, he doesn't 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 language--and the people know him as Rim-Sin, sorcerer and high priest to the gods of Babylon. The moment he arrives he is accused of murder--a murder Rim-Sin committed--and he must run for his life. Against the backdrop of Nebuchadnezzar's court at its zenith, he and rival sorcerers vie with Beltshazzar, the Jewish upstart, for the king's 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 won't get home until he has fallen from his pride. Fallen from his polytheism. Fallen from Babel.

Fallen From Babel Jun 22, 2006
This is one of my very favorite books! My sister is actually the one who bought it, but I love the story of Daniel,where much of this story takes place, so she told me that I would probably really enjoy it. I was a bit wary, as it is a time travel book too, which I usually don't like, but I decided to give it a try. It was really great! It is a Christian fiction book, which are my favorites, with a touch of romance (I enjoyed that too!), set in one of my favorite Bible stories, and with a really cool surprise ending! By the time I was done, I was begging my sister to let me have the book!(She did eventually give it to me : ) I would recomend this book to anyone looking for good Christian fiction.
A little slow at first, but a great read Feb 28, 2006
This book started out a little too slow for my taste, but couldn't put it down once I got going. It's very different from anything I've ever read. It is a Christian novel, which I like, but not overly so. Book involves time travel of sorts, and insight into life in early Biblical times. I think it would be a great novel for anyone to read.
