Zion; Enoch--Fiction; Zion (Mormon Church)--Fiction
In the year 647, calculated from the time Adam and Eve left the Garden, a thousand-year effort was begun to prevent the earth's inhabitants from being annihilated by flood. A young prophet named Enoch was the key messenger of the warning. In a world where the people were almost wholly given over to perversions and wickedness, Enoch raised a city of holiness, a place of consummate peace, a society that subsequent generations would long for and attempt to duplicate. During the millennia of the earth's existence, the desire for that kind of society would permeate literature and occupy the thought of great people. Some in ancient times called it the City of Enoch, but Enoch called it ZION. It existed on the earth over 300 years before it was wholly "taken up into heaven" by God. Tradition and prophecy abound that in the seventh millennium, Zion will again be established on the earth and bring peace to a troubled world.
This story follows the life of Rabunel as he and his family struggle to accept Enoch and his teachings and help him set the foundations of the most successful society in history. [publisher's blurb]
