Tim LaHaye has called Babylon Rising his most exciting series ever, and The Europa Conspiracy is the most thrilling and suspenseful installment yet. Reaching back to some of the most dramatic and prophetically significant stories of the Bible, and forward to the creation of ultimate evil in the modern world, the awe-inspiring revelations never let up.

Part Indiana Jones, part Mission: Impossible, and with a few elements of Left Behind, Karen Kingsbury's novels, and old-school Biblical epics mixed in, The Europa Conspiracy is an action-packed, Biblically inspired thrill ride. As with the previous books, the heroes are admirable, the villains are perfectly despicable (especially Talon, the big boss), the plot is very engrossing, and one particular long scene right in the middle of the novel is so well-written, it's like watching an action flick...more
This is another amazing book by Dr Tim Lahaye. The action continues as Dr Murphey is lured by Methusela to discover the writing on the wall that occured during King Balshazzars reign. Of course, before he can discover this, he has several encounters with Talon and several terrorists that have the main goal of killing Dr Murphey, Dr McDonald, and destroying the United States.
This is a terrible book! Sometimes the story line could be somewhat interesting, he brought up some historical figures I'd like to read more about, but the writing is awful. The writing itself is quite literally laughable. I found myself laughing out loud for the awful writing skills and how this writer has no concept of weaving character details into the story. At one point Murphy is about to get run down by an SUV, but wait, by the way, he knows karate, so he's going to use his skills now. Or...more

I am glad Dr. Anderson's notes tie some of the subplots together. I think the series is supposed to be Indiana Jones meets Left Behind, if Indiana were a windbag with an encyclopedia in his head from which he periodically decides to read aloud. More information is given on the Seven and their conspiracy, which helps develop the story better, but not enough information to explain their obsession with an obscure professor, nor their obsession with biblical artifacts, that are so peripheral to thei...more

The writing is on the wall for the Babylon Rising series, and it looks good for them. In the third novel, biblical archeologist Michael Murphy is seeking out the Babylonian wall that God literally inscribed a warning on before overthrowing the kingdom. And the result is quite an interesting story to read.

Many of the same failings I previously reported in the writing style continue in this book – the out of sequence flashback-style introduction, a tendency to lecture, and the frequent jumps fro...more
The Europa Conspiracy is the third book in the Babylon Rising series. In this book the reader learns more about the characters from the recent books, along with new characters. I would recomend this to anyone who has read the first two books in the Babylon Rising series and enjoyed them.
This book starts off with Murphy once again playing one of Methuselah's "games". The prize, just like all of the other times, starts Murphy on a search to find Biblical artifacts. This time, it is the Writing on...more

Professor Murphy continues to teach his biblical archeology classes; much to the consternation of his Dean. Paul learns the truth about his "kind" benefactor. And, Methusela takes Murphy on another death defying - to say the least - search; this time for the hand-writing on the wall in Nebuchadnezzar's court. The Seven grow increasingly powerful and concerned about their rival Methusela and his leg man Murphy; especially when Murphy discovers they've engineered the anti-Christ. We learn the answ...more
This was not a bad read, but not my favourite of all the series. There's a glaring writing error between Chapters 59 and 61 where the aftershock of the earthquake destroys the tunnels and Bingman has gone back for the camera. Murphy thinks Bingman is dead and suddenly he pops up, camera in hand and says "Looking for this Murphy?" and is clearly alive and then in Chapter 61 Isis says, "This has been a terrible day Michael.....and thinking Will was dead..." and then in Chapter 62 first paragraph,...more

Overall, the story was enjoyable. I wasn't thrilled with the writing style. There seemed to be a lot of information given in a lecture hall kind of way. Like you were sitting in class and the teacher was giving you info to keep notes on. The information was nice and educational, but I just wish the author(s) would have devised a better way to provide it. BUt like i said, all in all it was an enjoyable read. BTW, I have read reviews complaining about the preachy nature of the book and I am amazed...more
This one was pretty good, although there were a couple of things I didn't like. First of all, it's supposed to be about finding the Handwriting on the Wall, but that actually only takes up a small portion of the book. Instead it ends up being more about terrorists and the conspiracy. Secondly, there is one part that makes no sense. (spoiler warning) Bingman escapes the tunnel alive, but a chapter or two later Murphy tells Abrams he's sad over the loss of Bingman? What? Did I miss something? Anyw...more

Book #3 of Tim LaHaye's "Babylon Rising" series, "The Europa Conspiracy" is another fast paced novel in this series which continues our quest in search if of prophecies proving both the end times are near & that the Bible is real. This time around Professor Murphy is working on tracking down the Writing on the Wall as Daniel's prophecies continue to get closer to light. LaHaye's story is as fast paced as ever & the characters remain well written as well from assassinations to near death...more
The Babylon Rising series is a lot of fun. Who knew biblical archeology could be so exciting. Professor Michael Murphy isn't quite Indiana Jones, but he isn't far off. I would certainly enjoy seeing this series made into movies. The nice thing about the series is that even though I read them slightly out of order, I never really felt confused.
I read this book a year ago and all I can say is that it was a very interesting and thrilling read. If you're a Christian with some fair knowledge of the Bible (of course, this isn't a requirement to read the book, but it would definitely make the reading more interesting) and you love adventure, this Christian Fiction is a must read.
Ugh! The Babylon series has turned into a formula book; it's as bad as reading a Harlequin Romance! Truth be told I didn't finish the book, after reading the EXACT same lines as I read in the previous book, I decided it was time to stop. Too bad Tim LaHaye sold out, the bible history was interesting.
Another thriller in the series! I'm glad to see that Shari and Murphy are finally realizing that you aren't supposed to date unbelievers. I was beginning to wonder if they were going to mention that. Unfortunately, this one really ends on a cliffhanger.
Book #3 in the Babylon Rising Series. In this one, Michael Murphy is in search of the "Handwriting on the Wall" in Babylon, that was written by the "hand" the night Babylon fell. Another great adventure and read.
Sheldon Lehman
Took a little longer to get to the "treasure hunt"; it was almost an aftetthought to the rest of the story. It's a fast read, especially if you've read much of Lahaye's other stuff.
Not as good as the first two in the series. The protagonist starts to fall in love and Mr. LaHaye is by no means a romance novelist. Let's just keep it suspenseful and drop the romance!
Brenda Westervelt
liked it a lot, didn't like the end. It left us hanging, he built up this story and left it. I'm sure it carries on in next book and I've read books like that, but his was ridiculous.
Loved this story and this series is definitely exciting. A page turner. Be sure to carve out a block of time for it-you won't be able to put it down.
Took me a while to get through this one. Worth the read, especially if you like the series. Not the best one, but worth your time.
I enjoyed the first 2 books in this series but this one was a disappointment. It was all around poor writing. Skip it.
Debbie Mitchell
I love reading series, but this one is going downhill. The outline for the books seem to be the same. Very predictable.
You know what? If I wanted to be worried and scared by current events, I'd watch the news. I don't need it in my literature.
Tami Hawley
I love this series. It combines archeology and biblical prophecy....almost like Indiana Jones meets Left Behind!
Tracey Corey
I liked Greg Dinallo as Tim LaHaye's collaborator better than Bob Phillips. We'll see how the next one is...
Once again, if I could have given this no stars I would have.
Love this adventure! Couldn't wait to start the next book!
Just enjoyed the crazy adventures of Dr. Murphy
