Product Description

One of the most stunning, unique and captivating books on the account of the Ark and the global Flood of Noah's day ever produced. Based on the account recorded in Genesis 6-9 in the Bible, the narrative is true to the biblical record and its timeline of events concerning Noah's flood, with added insight as to what it might have been like to be in Noah's shoes. This is not just a fantastic reading book for the whole family, but a coffee table witnessing book and a wonderful gift idea for non-Christians to challenge them concerning the truth of the Bible and the gospel. Recommended for ages 6 to 10.

Publisher's Description

God always has a plan; God always has a man. The plan: destroy the wickedness of the world. The man: Noah. How would you feel if you knew that God was going to destroy the world, and you had been chosen out of millions of people to continue the human race? This book is not just Sunday school material for kids, but the thrilling adventure of Noah comes to life through the dazzling, detailed illustrations and the exciting True Story of Noah's Ark. The images of the interior of Noah's ark are like nothing you've ever seen before. The people and cities depicted here are certainly more advanced than what you've been led to believe these people weren't cavemen They invented metals and musical instruments; they were skilled craftsmen; they built grand cities all BEFORE the Flood. And this is not fiction it's all biblically and historically based.

    I purchased this book to accompany homeschool study of ancient history, from a Biblical viewpoint. The book is more suited to older children, for whilst the illustrations in the book will keep the younger ones interested, the language and content is rather advanced. The basic facts found in the Bible are largely elaborated on by the author's speculation, and I found I did have to explain this several times to my younger child. The older children understood- this was someone's viewpoint! Some useful and interesting things were the chart showing how long the 8 people were in the ark, plus the Hebrew meaning of ark and a more correct interpretation of ark visually and it's possible construction. These things enabled my children to understand more deeply the enormity of the ark. I would recommend that a child obtain a solid understanding of the story, directly from the Bible, before introducing this book. Please note the eBook version of this product is slower than most digital products, I imagine due to the many beautiful pictures.

    Historical Treatment of Noah and the Ark

    Noah's ark and the worldwide flood of Genesis are amongst the Bible events most often retold in children's picture books. Despite the fact that you likely have a copy of one (or more) Noah's ark picture books/board books etc. on your bookshelves, if you hold to a literal, young earth understanding of the book of Genesis this is one rendering of the historical event that you'll want to purchase.

    Recounted in an in-depth, factual manner, author Tom Dooley presents the pre-flood world as it is sketched for us in the Bible, and realistically examines the design, dimensions, and logistics of life aboard the ark. As such, the books strength lies not in it's narrative re-telling (which is a bit dry) but simply in the fact that Dooley takes the flood seriously and treats it as history.

    The True Story of Noah's Ark reads a bit more like a well-illustrated middle-school textbook than it does a storybook. Because of the reading style, we normally need to read through this book in two or three sittings. There is a lot of text, and my children can zone out after awhile.

    Illustrator Bill Looney uses computer-illustration for the copious numbers of detailed pictures included in the book. While computer-illustration is never my favorite style, Looney manages to approximate traditional, realistic, detailed artwork with that medium than any other children's illustrator I've seen.

    This lovely hardcover also comes with a CD complete with a reading of the book's text with background music and sound effects. If only there were indicators of when to turn the page, then pre-readers could have the book read to them by the author on CD.

    What really sets this book apart is the strong emphasis on the historical reality of Noah and the flood. Dinosaurs are shown boarding and on board the ship (something rarely found in traditional books about Noah) and the sheer scope and scale of the area available for transporting animals is clearly on display. Our family really appreciates the visuals provided at the back of the book that compare the real ark dimensions with the boats normally shown in children's literature. We also appreciate the connection between Jesus being our ark of salvation and the Old Testament ark that God provided for the salvation of His people.

    I'm passionate about teaching children Bible events as history, and am always quick to assure my four-year-old when she asks, "Was Noah real?" that yes, indeed, he was! If you only have room in your library for one picture book about Noah, and presenting the events that took place in his life as historical fact is important to you, take a good look at this title, I think you'll be well pleased.

    Excellent book in every way. Well-researched & written, and envisioned & illustrated. Hopefully more works forthcoming from this team! One further observation: so many who paint a scene in Eden's garden presume that Adam somehow made regular use of his Gillette; I don't think so. The Great Designer has a purpose in gifting men with facial hair; eliminating evidence of it removes any desire to discover its purpose. Several books have been done on this subject, but this is easily the best we've found, and it's for both children and adults.
