I've read almost every book on Noah that's been printed. This book is poorly written and not informative. It's almost like a glorified magazine article. The author does not write from the point of authority and the book lacks a serious treatment that the subject is due. There are grammar mistakes and the editing is poor as well. I expected a serious, scholarly treatment of the topic, however it had more of a rushing feel to it so it could reach the bookstore shelves in time for the movie. Indeed, one chapter seems to me to be one long advertisement for a Noah theme park being built in Ohio! If you want one of the best books on Noah and the flood, written by a scientist, check out The Genesis Flood by Dr Henry Morris, as well as the companion book, The Genesis Record. Both these books are scholarly and treat the subject of a global flood very seriously. What's impressive about the late Dr Morris is his PhD in hydrology, the study of water and it's movement, and has written text books on the topic.

Like many O have heard and read the stories from the Bible all my life. I in turn have passed them on to the next generation. Enjoying them as much as I read them to my nieces and nephews and now to my great-nieces and great-nephews. From the beginning of Creation to the ejection of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. From Noah and the flood to the parting of the Red Sea. From, the birth of Christ to His crucifixion on to His resurrection and ascension to heaven. From Genesis to Revelation, the beginning to the end. I know them well, but I never thought about the same stories being part of other cultures and nor just Christianity.
Noah's Ark is one of the all time favorites of young and old alike. What is not to find exciting, standing up in defiance of the masses for something or someone you truly believe in, The amassing of the largest collection of animals in history, which according to Noah: The Real Story that would be over sixteen thousand animals which includes reptiles, birds and mammals. A whole world washed clean by the hand of God Himself.
Noah: The Real Story goes one step beyond and tells of stories from Chinese, Native American, Greek and other cultures that tell of similar stories Noah's and the Ark in their histories. The book also goes on to give plausible explanations for how Noah and his household could care for and feed so many animals, keep the air from becoming toxic and dispose of all the waste. Where did they store the food to keep it dry and safe from contamination? Did you know their are even places where people have replicated the Ark in design size that you can go and see how truly huge it was?
The illustrations and pictures depict the varying references beautifully. This is a truly amazing book for those that want to know more about this popular story and the effect the event had on the world you will want to pick up a copy for yourself today. You will not regret it.
