Overview

Noah and Gabriel, the deluge, Adam, Enoch, Methuselah, the Tower of Babel, the Jaredites-these are names and events shrouded in antiquity. For hundreds of years, scholars and theologians have speculated on whether these were men or myth, fact or fiction. In Noah and the Flood, Elder Mark E. Petersen explores the times preceding, during and shortly after the flood, concluding that the flood and dispensation of Noah are witnesses to the marvelous power and planning of God. Using ancient and modern scripture, commentaries, and translations of the Bible, Elder Petersen covers the premortal and postmortal life of Noah as Gabriel, Noah's mortal ministry as prophet, and the related ministries of Adam and Enoch. In addition, he discusses conditions leading to the deluge and what the flood entailed. He supports the authenticity of the scriptural account and examines critical problems involved with a universal flood. Of greatest worth, however, is what we learn of divine purposes and planning. Noah and the Flood is a fascinating testimonial of the Lord's existence and works.
