Noah and the Ark...children's story or ancient myth? Andrew Guyatt thinks it's neither. Combining the skills of scientific researcher and storyteller, he gives us his own compelling re-telling of the story. Firmly rooted in the Genesis account, it reveals the brutal, idolatrous society which opposes Noah's devotion to 'the Holy One'. After struggling to build the Ark, he agonises over the judgement it brings and, with his family, endures a year in the great boat's dark, dank, odorous and claustrophobic belly before reaching a new, clean world. Noah may have been a man from ancient times - but his problems and triumphs carry an amazing resonance for us in the twenty-first century. Ever wonder where Noah got the wood to build the ark? Or how he collected the animals? Or how he fed them all and how it felt to be chosen for this momentous mission that involved wiping out the rest of society? A gritty and compelling tale of the great flood, as you've never heart it before! There is an online study guide to give readers and small groups related discussion material.
