Apr 10, 2020 rated it it was ok
Bella Rhodes is a young writer on vacation with her family in Chicago. After a moment in an elevator Bella is taken back in time to fight against an ancient power and spread the truth.

The 6th in a series, each book focuses on a different child in a different time in biblical history. Personally I found this book to be rather confusing with Bella having visions within her imagination and also the roles of the supporting characters as they didn't have much time to develop them, but they seemed to

Bella is a preteen girl struggling to find acceptance and sincere connection from her peers. She is on vacation with her family when she is transported to ancient Shinar, where the Tower of Babel is being constructed. Bella relies on her relationship with God and her Biblical knowledge to intercede and share the consequences of the tower. The book takes an interesting turn when it appears there are more people involved in the time travel than just Bella- which I’m assuming will continued to be e ...more

This was a super fun read-aloud in my family! We thoroughly enjoyed this book and plan to get the rest of the series we don’t already have! I highly recommend if you’re looking for Christian middle grade fiction!

This book is full of excitement that will holds your attention. Even though it's wrote for children ages 8+ the message it contains is wonderful for adults too. The author did an excellent job of writing a story about putting on the amour of God that will hold a child's attention. I highly recommend this book and the entire series. Thank you Barbour Publishing via NetGalley for the ARC copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
I received this book from Netgalley in return of an honest review

I really liked this book. The characters, plot and setting were all very immersive. This book also had very good lessons for kids to remember. I highly recommend this book for kids ages 11+

An interesting adventure

My rating is 3.5 stars

When I saw this book available for review, I was intrigued. There are not many stories about the Tower of Babel, and especially not for kids.

There is high adventure as Bella and her new friend, Zion race to the top of the tower, chased by wolves and an evil being. I liked the way the elements of the spiritual armor we are told to don in the book of Ephesians showed up in the story to help Bella fight her battles.

I also appreciated the message of how

While on the observation deck of the Willis Tower in Chicago with her family, Bella is suddenly transported to Shinar in 2300 B.C. There she sees the Tower of Babel mid-construction and becomes caught up in a dark plot to lead the people astray.

I am not completely sure what I just read. I expected an adventure similar to Superbook or Adventures in Odyssey, but there is definitely something else going on here. The tower being built, the reasons behind it, and Bella's attempt to stop the people an

I decided to request this book to review through Netgalley, which they granted in exchange for my honest opinion, because I've never read a Christian novel which revolves around the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel and I was anxious to do so. Even though it's aimed at a younger market (younger than me for sure), I found it kept my attention even at my ripe old age of older than mold, but younger than dirt. Just as I thought the story would meander into a teen angst area for a while, the fant ...more

It's a book that seems interesting to me to read or to make read to discover the biblical writings in another way...

However, I didn't hang too much, probably because I do not feel concerned (being an atheist) and that I read it in a period when I would have preferred not to approach religion so closely.

I like the Imagine series and Imagine... The Tower Rising is probably my favorite so far. I am giving it four and a half stars.
