The Tower tells the account of the tower of Babel from the perspective of three children. 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.
Will the tower make them famous or be their downfall?
“We are one people with one purpose. Together, we will do great things!”
Nimrod raised his arms and pointed to the tower.
Lace up your sandals and grab your sling because The Tower is an adventure story you don’t want to miss. From dust storms to dinosaurs, this imaginative story makes the tower of Babel come alive. As you follow the journey of three friends, you’ll learn that obeying God is always the best decision.

The Tower is a fun story for early readers that captures life during the building of the tower of Babel, including the dinosaurs that may have lived 100 years after the flood. This is an excellent book for children who love to think about Bible times and what life would have been like. The author creates an appealing story that reminds us that in every age seeking God makes all the difference.
