About the Author

Bodie attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (SIUC) and received a BS and MS (in 1996 and 1998 respectively) in mechanical engineering. His specialty was a subset of mechanical engineering based in advanced materials processing, particularly starting powders.

He conducted research for his master’s degree through a grant from Lockheed Martin and developed a New Method of Production of Submicron Titanium Diboride. The new process was able to make titanium diboride cheaper, faster and with higher quality. This technology is essential for some nanotechnologies.

During his years at SIUC (a secular college), he continued his personal study of biblical apologetics, and even began teaching this topic to a junior high church class. While at SIUC, he was the president of one of the few Christian RSOs (Registered Student Organizations) called Christians Unlimited, and was also an officer in the student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

After earning his master’s degree, he accepted a position of Visiting Instructor at SIUC and started in the fall semester of 1998. He was only 24 years old when he began teaching undergraduate engineering courses at the university.

After working for SIUC for a couple of years, Bodie accepted a position as a test engineer through Aerotek Engineering to work for Caterpillar Inc. in Peoria, Illinois at the Peoria Proving Ground.

While working at Caterpillar, he taught apologetics to junior high and high school students at his local church, which was a natural outcome considering his love for science, history, and theology. He did this until taking a position with Answers in Genesis in 2003. Currently, Bodie is a speaker, writer, and researcher on a host of topics, including fall of Satan and related events.

Bodie was saved when he was nine. As a youngster, he was active in baseball, football and basketball. His hobbies also included hunting and fishing, which are almost unavoidable pursuits while growing up on a farm in Western Illinois.

I found that Mr. Hodge's research was very in-depth and thorough.
Robert Driskell
In summary, Hodge shows how the historical account of the Tower of Babel can help us make sense of our world today.
CreationMom
This book was very well researched but easy to read and understand.

A few years ago, a friend gave me a copy of After the Flood: The Early Post-flood History of Europe Traced Back to Noah, by Bill Cooper. I was fascinated, and read through the entire book, appendices and all, in a couple of evenings. It was full of research and details about what happened just after Noah's Flood, and how mankind was forced to spread out across the face of the earth after God's actions at the Tower of Babel.

I loved the information presented in After The Flood. But I wasn't aware of much else along the same lines until recently.

A few days ago, I received a copy of Bodie Hodge's Tower of Babel. Once again, I devoured this book, cover to cover, in just a couple of evenings. I simply couldn't put it down.

Tower of Babel is packed full of tons of incredible information. And after reading it, one has to wonder how mankind can continue to deny God's existence and involvement throughout history.

To start out, Hodge covers several important questions about history shortly after Noah's Flood. He takes several brief chapters and quickly discusses such topics as why man was disobedient, when this dispersion occurred,and where it occurred. He discusses the purpose of the tower, and whether or not Nimrod was involved, and even digs into some of the basics of linguistics and language families.

And then you get to Chapter 17...

This chapter blew me away.

Format: Paperback
Master Books has never failed to disappoint in the books they publish. Author, Bodie Hodge, takes the reader through impeccable research and Biblical truths that reveal the hand of God that moved people across the globe after mass disobedience on the plains of Shinar (which means "between two rivers").

Bodie Hodge details how the true history of the Tower of Babel is being attacked: evolution-based racism, mythological ideologies, and the reinterpretation of historical events into philosophical ideas. Each attack is on the authenticity and authority of God's inspired Word and attempts to hold man's ideas higher than the almighty Creator God.

It's both fascinating and horrifying to read that the Tower of Babel began construction about 106 years after Noah's worldwide flood. To think that God's grace saved Noah's family, yet their descendents went right back to the sinfulness of their forefathers; the very sin that destroyed them. It reminds me that none of us are immune to sin and it's destruction on our lives and those around us.

Mr. Hodge expands on different areas that are quite interesting.

Format: Paperback
Tower of Babel by Bodie Hodge is a collection of essays, each addressing a different question/topic related to the subject of the Tower of Babel. I was very interested to get this book to read, especially since this year in homeschooling my kids we have been learning about ancient history. These topics are on the forefront of our conversations these days, and having learned all about the ancient peoples (yes, I learn it too, not just the kids!), I was familiar with some good background information.

The book addresses a huge amount of questions. Interesting questions. Some that the average person would come up with and others more in-depth. Each is answered with a Biblical and historical basis. The content was good. A lot of information, but good information. It's not an easy read, pretty academic. It started out an interesting read, but it took me so looooooooooong to read it--I kind of felt like I was just slogging through when it got further into the second half of the book.

One thing that annoyed me as I was reading is the immense amount of footnotes on EACH PAGE!!! (rather than at the end of the essay). For some reason this distracted me and it was not until a few essays in that I was able to read through without being distracted by them. :) Maybe just my own quirk.

My constructive criticism is that I believe this book would be a LOT more effective as a reference if it had a detailed index. There was no index, just the chapter title listing in the beginning of the book. I think the book could be used in many more applications if it had a good index. I cannot imagine WHY they didn't include one!

So -- would I recommend this book? Unless you are really into ancient history and ancient genealogies and family group migration, etc.
