Description - Babylon Post by Rob Alloway

Murder, intrigue, war and cannibalism are only a few of the traits that describe the last turbulent decade before the destruction of Jerusalem in 587 BC at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon. Yet in the midst of such chaos some of Israel's most outspoken and eccentric prophets urged spiritual renewal. This is the landscape for five very uncommon tales from the life and times of Jeremiah. Babylon Post provides a compelling entre for anyone who has avoided the books of Jeremiah and Ezekiel. "If you prefer your sacred history pin-tidy and saccharine sweet, reduced to simple pieties, avoid Babylon Post at all costs. But if you believe that God has always worked through an odd assortment of cranky saints and charming sinners, the wayward and the waylaid, the bloodstained and battle-scarred, then Rob Alloway's chronicles will ring true at every turn. His stories behind the Story are at once richly evocative, psychologically incisive, and historically precise. Each tale provokes, delights and-yes-edifies. One warning, though: they're hard to put down, and almost impossible to forget." -Mark Buchanan, Author of Your God is Too Safe, and The Holy Wild
