How often have you skipped over genealogies in the Bible, or glossed over events that seem far-removed from your current, everyday life? Yet everything in Scripture has a purpose, and there is so much we can learn by studying each part.
In his new book, Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of Our Ancestors, Bodie Hodge provides fascinating insights into many of the mysteries surrounding the Tower of Babel and the dispersion of people following the events there. Hodge deals with questions and objections frequently raised by skeptics against the historicity of Genesis, as well as delving into issues vital to believers today. Some of the questions included as chapters are: How Do You Pronounce Babel, Anyway? What Kinds of Specific Attacks Are There? Why Were the People Disobedient? When Did the Scattering Occur? What Was the Purpose of the Tower of Babel? Did the Continents Split in the Days of Peleg? and many more. He also includes detailed maps and descriptions illustrating the possible migrations of the descendants of Shem, Ham, and Japheth and how they relate to people groups today.
