Book DescriptionIn The Shadow of Babylon is a mythical story incorporating parables handed down over several millennia. The demands of our modern multitasking lives often distract us from applying these proven life lessons that create a more satisfying, happy and fulfilled life. It is an intriguing myth with a powerful philosophical core that speaks to the importance of ... creating ones own destiny through visualization ... living in the present moment ... controlling emotions and eliminating grief and sadness.
Baghdad is in chaos. Sunni and Shia, free from the dictator Hussein, revive their religious hatred. Then, without warning, the children of Iraq rise up in protest against the killings. In the Shadow of Babylon is a powerful story from the past and how its message changes the present.
During the reign of the last ruler of Babylon, Saddam Hussein, a crypt lined with engraved gold panels protecting an ancient scroll (pre-dating Hamrabi by thousands of years) is discovered--it is the oldest writing in the world.
After the liberation of Iraq Alexandria Darshi, an Iraqi doctoral student and Bryan Feroz, a handsome professor of Middle Eastern studies at the University of Chicago, translate the autobiographical scroll of a warrior poet named Ayuba. When it is read during two worldwide television documentaries, moderate Arabs embrace the ancient warrior's secular voice. Threatened by the message, radical Islamists set out to kill the messenger.
Ayuba, orphaned at age nine, wanders for two years in a barren desert inhabited by violent tribes. He is brutally enslaved by a band of reed gatherers. His rescue and adoption by a prominent tribal leader sets him on a course of adventure, war and fame.
The courage, kindness and passion of a man who existed in 11,000 BCE touches the hearts of thousands of modern-day Iraqi children. Moved by Ayuba's wisdom and leadership they stand in peaceful protest against the raging jihadists. Many are slaughtered but, in the end, their example inspires the women of Iraq to join them in a nationwide demonstration of unity.
