In Imagine . . . The Great Flood by Matt Koceich, 10-year-old Corey chases his dog Molly into the woods and falls and hits his head. That and the searing pain is the only thing that he can remember before he finds himself face-to-face with two lions as he realizes that he is living through a monumental biblical event---the Great Flood. Recommended for ages 8 to 12 years.
The ocean swirled around the boy and pulled him down with unrelenting power. Heavy water churned and tugged at his flailing body like unseen hands yanking him into the watery depths. The fight was finally over. Even though hed tried to stand up to the enemy, the waves were about to swallow him whole.
The last thing ten-year-old Corey remembers (before the world as he knew it disappeared) was the searing pain in his head after falling while chasing his dog Molly into the woods. What happens next can't be explained as Corey wakes up and finds himself face-to-face with not one but two lions!
Join Corey and experience the excitement. . .the wonder. . . the adventure. . .as the epic story of Noahs ark comes to life.

"I couldnt be more proud of Guild alum, Matt Koceich! He had a dream, persevered, and would not be denied. Enjoy this result, and may it be only the first of many."
Jerry Jenkins, Novelist & Biographer, Owner, The Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild
"Matt Koceich's Imagine. . .The Great Flood is some of the best biblical historical fiction I've read. The story takes us from modern-day America to Ancient Mesopotamia. . .and ties together neatly the link between faith in God and trust in people we love, regardless of apparent circumstance. I look forward to the next installment."
Kaci Hill, screenplay writer and Ted Dekkers coauthor of Lunatic and Elyon
"Matt Koceich does a masterful job of lifting readers out of the boredom of everyday life, dropping them head-first into a fast-paced, action-packed world of Bible adventure."
Phil A. Smouse, author and illustrator of over fifty books for kids including Jesus Wants All of Me, the childrens adaptation of Oswald Chambers

"Imagine. . .The Great Flood is nonstop action in an epic Bible adventure! A well-known story like Noahs Ark comes to life through the eyes of 10-year-old Corey Max with all the wonder of Gods creation and the evil forces that want to stop Gods plans. (Spoiler alert: God wins!) Boys and girls who like the I Survived books will love this action-packed tale."
Annie Tipton, author of the Diary of a Real Payne series, including the award-winning title True Story
"The distinct Christian worldview is refreshing in a genre that, at times, can be diluted in an attempt to draw a larger audience. Young readers who want a fun, clean read will be curious to see what comes next in the "Imagine" series."
