During World War II, an American soldier stationed in Iran, was brought to the frozen summit of a mountain range. Below him was an enormous object, which resembled a battleship stuck on a sandbar. The local people believed it was Noahs Ark, but its exact location has been kept secret for both political and religious reasons.
The testimony of this soldier sparked an intense search for this historic treasure. The pages of this book carefully lead readers through the planning stages of several expeditions to this area. In many ways, this adventure is a real-life mystery, with clues being gathered from Scripture, memories, and maps.
The mountain ranges of Turkey and Iran were the sites of their searches. The men on this mission had to hazard not only the dangers of the climb, but also officials in those countries who didnt appreciate outsiders. Yet, they continued their chase, fueled by their courage and convictions. Their stamina, skill, and steadfast faith are an inspiration. This book is written with clear and compelling details that make each expedition a breathless venture. Political intrigue, narrow escapes and dire disappointments keep the pages turning.
In addition to the authors powerful and persuasive commentary, the book includes maps and color photographs. Robert Cornuke has given readers a chance to see and experience an adventure of a lifetime. Ark Fever is contagious and compelling! -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
