The Tower Book by Evonne Krell
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to suddenly not be able to communicate with your closest friends, neighbors, or even relatives? That’s what happened at the tower of Babel when God judged the people by confusing their language.
This historical fiction chapter book tells the account of the tower of Babel from the perspective of three kids living in the post-flood city. It shows why Noah’s descendants stayed together to build a tower, what it was like to live in that unique time period, and why God judged the people.
Jered, Nephti, and Damian are three friends living over one hundred years after the global flood recorded in Genesis. Each of their families has a different role in their city as their people work together to build a tower and make a name for themselves. Jered’s family are shepherds and historians. Damian’s family fishes and explores the river. Nephti’s father is the chief designer of the tower.
When the mighty hunter Nimrod saves the children from a monster attack, Jered wants to be like him. But is Nimrod really the hero Jered thinks he is? After a conversation with his ancestor Shem, Jered wonders if their people are being disobedient to God. If they are, what judgment might God bring?
Join Jered and his friends as they battle dangerous creatures, face perilous storms, and learn to rely on God when hope seems lost.
