The Babylon Code

Title:  The Babylon Code (Solving the Bible’s Greatest End-Times Mystery)
Author:  Paul McGuire & Troy Anderson
Pages:  400
Year:  2016
Publisher:  FaithWords
My rating is 4 stars.
The Babylon Code by Paul McGuire and Troy Anderson is an interesting book filled with end-times data and discussion.  The book is very thorough, and it is quite obvious the authors did a lot of biblical and historical research in writing this book.  The book is a bit repetitive with some of its points, although I would say this is a problem with editing, but it doesn’t take away from the overall enjoyment of the book.  The authors definitely have attempted to bring some scholarship to the realm of conspiracy theories and biblical prophecy.  Prophecy accounts for one third of the Bible, and McGuire and Anderson have done an excellent job putting together an interesting end-times narrative.  The authors have shown that the book of Revelation isn’t something that Christians need to fear; rather it is a book of hope and possibilities that is worth the time and effort exploring.  I wouldn’t necessarily agree with their interpretations, but I applaud their work and attempt to weave the narrative into a plausible tapestry.
Anytime I read a book of this nature I try to keep in mind that the only completely truthful book is The Bible.  Any information or points of view shared by the authors must be looked at through the lens of the Bible, which is what God has revealed to mankind.  I believe there is much He has chosen not to reveal because of His mercy, remembering we are dust.  If God were to tell us more than He has, I don’t think we would understand it still because of our limited minds.
Please keep in mind God alone knows all and is complete Truth, and any human author is subject to debate while His Word, His Being is not.  Feel free to glean the nuggets of the truth you find and set aside or do further research on anything that you find difficult to understand.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
