The Rise and Fall of King Nimrod
Dudley F. Cates
From The Publisher:
Ancient records and more particularly, modern ones, record the lives of an uneven line of despots, tyrants, and dictators throughout history, up to our own times. But where and with whom did it all start? In The Rise and Fall of King Nimrod, readers will learn who it was that became the rouge model for this brand of leadership. They will learn about a man who managed to conquer all the known and civilized world with an enormous army of his fellow tribal followers in Chaldea, which he at one time, extended from the ancient deltas of the Tigris and the Euphrates rivers all the way across North Africa to the "Great Ocean" — the Atlantic.
Believing in his own invincibility and still paranoid over the fact that God in heaven had unfairly brought destruction on the world of his antediluvian ancestors, Nimrod declared himself ruler of the world, King of Shinar, and set about building an immense tower from the top of which he could attack and kill God, to avenge the descendants of Noah for the horrors of the flood.
While the Bible provides only brief references to this original "Tyrant of the Tigris", other scriptures, almost unknown, exist which tell of his exploits, his despotic character, his cruelty and his cunning. Almost alone in his stalwart opposition to the pagan beliefs of Nimrod, his followers, and even his family, the youthful son (Abram) of Nimrod's military commander-in-chief, his own father Terah, undertook to overthrow and humble the great dictator, which he eventually did long after his father's death in Syria. Abram's name was later changed to Abraham, whom the world knows as the noble patriarch and first true friend of God.
How Nimrod meets his own death, at the hands of another bad actor of those early times, the wicked Esau, provides an exciting ending to this extraordinary amplification of biblical history.
