The Two Babylons



Table of Contents for the book on Balaam's Ass Speaks CD Journal

This book is a classic.  Hislop had only a fraction of the now available epigraphic
material with which to write this book.  Yet very little can be faulted in his conclusions,
and the heritage of the Roman Catholic Church, as Hislop presented it, is unchanged.  
No one can refute this presentation.

From the Editor Blessed Quietness Journal:--

add my observation on the "God of Forces" in The discussion of Daniel
on that subject. Otherwise, I will make no changes to this book.
