    Within minutes of beginning this book, I knew why it had been named the Winner of the 2009 Christian Retailing Choice Award in Christian Education.  The book, written by engineer Tim Lovett, covers a wide range of details in a fast paced manner. Lovett built and test various models of the ship and his thorough research shows clearly throughout the book. I have listed some of the chapter headlines and my favorite highlights below. 




    Flood legend--Included on these pages is a helpful bar graph giving a wide range of cultures (Persia, Syria, Peru, Italy, and Hawaii etc.) that have a partial or full representation of the biblical ideas behind the flood. I appreciated this information as it allows one to see at a glance how widespread the account of the flood is. 




    Figuring out the design --On these pages, Tim Lovett lists the three places he had as choices for investigation: The Bible, testable science, and tradition. He gives a background of each and how they can compliment each other. 




    Ship-like proportions--Here we get a view into how a world class ship research center analyzed the proportions give for the biblical ark to see what would happen if the dimensions were altered from the Genesis account. The study concluded, and it was confirmed that no improvements could be made over the biblical proportions given to Noah by God. 




    Could ancient man have built a boat that big? This was one of the best sections in the book. Lovett touches on a subject that is touched on by few—that of ancient man. Facts such as the Egyptians erection of 400 ton obelisks, and a 420 foot galley that is described by the writing of ancient Greek historian, all point to evidence that ancient man did not start out as less knowledgeable and grow in knowledge. Ancient man had more intelligence than he is given credit for, and although we analyze the structures that they built, they continue to amaze and confound us today. I only wish this section were longer--Fascinating! 




    Feeding the Animals—Kids of all ages will enjoy these pages as Tim Lovett comes up with some “out of the box” diagrams for possible methods of feeding the animals!




    Timeline of Noah’s flood-- Another useful tool for capturing in a short concise way the building, travel, and landing of the ark. People that have trouble remembering details (how many times was the dove sent out!?) will appreciate the clear layout of this graph.




    How is Christ like the ark?— Although this takes up only a two short pages of the book, it was ink well spent. Tim Lovett does a fine job of metaphorically explaining how Christ is like the ark using Scriptures 2 Peter 3:7, Genesis 7:16, and John 10:9. 




    The books illustrations are beautiful and numerous. (The only one I objected to was a drawing of Noah's family where a couple of the daughter-in-laws are presented unnecessarily in strapless dresses.)Despite this one drawback, this is a book that all of the kids and adults in our home will continue to enjoy for years to come. Nowhere have I seen drawings and facts of Noah’s ark presented in a more realistic way. Tim Lovett has done well in presenting this book to our generation.
