Product Description

Did Noah's ark look like a tub with a house on top or a majestic, expansive sea-going vessel even dwarfing many ships built after it? We've all seen the cartoony pictures of an ark crowded with animal heads, but is that what it was really like? And more importantly, is that the image we want to be putting in our children's heads? Tim Lovett has a passion for the ark of Noah, and a desire to popularize an accurate version of how it looked, how it was built, its viability as an actual seacraft, and what it means to believe in the ark as presented in the Bible.
Lovett is a naval expert and mechanical engineer who has built and tested different models of the ark to determine which would be optimal for surviving a world-wide flood. By applying building techniques that could have been available in Noah's day and by using the 'blueprints' provided by God Himself, he illustrates - in word and picture - what it would be like if one had the task of constructing a structure that would be big enough to hold at least two of every kind of animal (and a year's worth of food for each), but also sufficiently strong, stable, and comfortable. Astonishingly, the biblical dimensions are similar to those still used today on modern cargo ships.
Whether you have doubts about the existence of the ark or whether you believe it but would like particulars about how it could have been built, Noah's Ark: Thinking Outside the Box will answer your questions about one of the best-known parts of the Bible, and one that figures into modern debates about biblical beginnings.

    "Noah's Ark" is an interesting, quick read about the feasibility of Noah's ark and the design details that the author thought might have been included based on his research. It's an overview of many aspects of Noah's ark, from how it was built to how the animals were fed and watered. Pretty much every other page was a full-page, full-color illustration (usually of what the ark might have looked liked, inside and out). Each page of text came with detailed illustrations of what the things being discussed might have been like. This book would make a great "coffee table" book to have out for visitors to browse through.This book doesn't go in-depth on every aspect of Noah's Ark, but it probably contains all of the detail most people care about. Some topics covered: how Noah's Ark has been illustrated in the past; how there are Flood legends from all over the world with similarities to the Bible account; God's Ark-building instructions and what certain unique Hebrew words fully mean ("ark," "gopherwood," "rooms," "pitch," "door," "cubits," "decks," "window," and "finish it to a cubit from above"); figuring out the ark's design based first on the Bible account and then by using testable engineering principles; the ark's proportions are an ideal balance of strength, comfort, and stability; did ancients have the technology to successfully build such a large wooden ship?; design elements the author added to the traditional "box-like" Ark design; how they could have fed and watered the animals; ventilation and lighting; timeline for the Flood; modern searches for the Ark; is there evidence for a world-wide Flood? There was also a nice fold-out poster in the back.I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

    Reading this book really opens your eyes to the work Noah did when GOD called him to build an ark. I recommend this book to every one to see what one man can do when God is in charge of him, and the man trusts in God to lead him.
