Player A has control of Player B's [c]False Prophet[/C].
Player C has a [C]Rendclaw Trow[/C] in play.
It is Player B's turn. Player B casts [C]Blasphemous Act[/C].
[C]False Prophet[/C] and [C]Rendclaw Trow[/C] are simultaneously dealt 13 damage, and are destroyed. Prophet enters Player B's graveyard, as he is the card's owner. Rendclaw enters player C's GY at the same time.
As the active player, Player B's False Prophet's enter-the-graveyard ability triggers first and goes on the stack, then player C's Rendclaw Trow's enter-the-graveyard (persist) ability triggers and goes on the stack. Trow resolves first and returns to play with a -1/-1 counter, then Prophet resolves, sees the Trow on the battlefield, and exiles it.

Is this a correct interpretation of the rules and how these effects should be stacked and resolved?

The False Prophet has a "leaves the battlefield" ability, which means that ability is controlled by whoever controlled the Prophet when it was last on the battlefield.  In this case that is "A".

Assuming that the turn order is ABC, then player C's persist ability from the Trow goes on the stack first, then player A's Prophet ability.

The Prophet's ability will resolve first, exiling any creatures, then the Trow comes back.
 
You would have that exactly correct except for the fact that False Prophet's ability is a "leaves the battlefield" ability.  Meaning that it triggers based on what the game looks like just before the triggering event rather than after.  Meaning that that triggered ability is controlled by A, not B.
