Babylon is on the rise! Throughout history, Babylon has been a symbol of the world’s worst evils—extreme decadence, infinite cruelty, ravenous power, and implacable contention against God. And nowhere in the Bible do we get a more vivid picture of the malevolent nature of Babylon than the book of Daniel.
Teeming with prophetic markers and visions—many of which have already been fulfilled—the parallels between the world described in the book of Daniel and the world we are living in today are positively staggering.
In fact, a close examination of the prophecies described in Daniel reveals indisputable evidence that the ancient spirit of Babylon is not only on the rise but that the end times are much closer than we think.
In Agents of Babylon, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah explores the prophecies, dreams, and visions outlined in the book of Daniel, explains what they mean, and shows us how they apply to our world today so we can better prepare for what is to come.
Written in the same highly engaging half dramatization, half Bible-teaching format as his #1 New York Times bestseller Agents of the Apocalypse, Agents of Babylon offers not only an in-depth exploration of the characters and prophecies contained in the book of Daniel but also includes a dramatic retelling of Scripture that brings ancient prophecy to light like never before.
The prophecy is clear. Babylon is ascending, and Daniel’s dreams contain the clues to weathering the nightmare that is yet to come.
In his #1 New York Times bestseller Agents of the Apocalypse, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah explored the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players. Now, in the much-anticipated follow-up, Agents of Babylon, Dr. Jeremiah examines prophecy through the eyes of the characters in the book of Daniel, explains what the prophecies mean, and helps us understand how these prophetic visions and dreams apply to our lives today. Written in the same highly engaging half dramatization, half Bible teaching format as Agents of the Apocalypse, Agents of Babylon is not only an in-depth exploration of the characters and prophecies contained in the book of Daniel but also a dramatic retelling of Scripture that is sure to bring ancient prophecy to light like never before.
The book of Daniel has held a fascination for me over the years and I really appreciated seeing the book through Dr. Jeremiahâ€™s eyes. Even though I donâ€™t agree with all of his conclusions in the non-fiction part of the book, I still thoroughly enjoyed reading Dr. Jeremiahâ€™s many wonderful insights into the book of Daniel, one of the most important prophetic books of the Bible.
Dr. David Jeremiah's book, Agents of Babylon, is a biblically sound exegesis of the book of Daniel. Jeremiah clearly delineates what the text says, using his expertise and that of other evangelical scholars. In addition to the verse by verse exegesis, Jeremiah begins each chapter of this book with a fictional account of the text's content and then demonstrates where it is. Thus, as a reader of fiction, I get both worlds: the creative historical fiction AND a detailed verse by verse interpretation of the text. I highly recommend this latest book by the esteemed pastor and author.
