Go back in time to see what it would be like to live with Noah and his family on the Ark!
See what their living quarters may have looked like, what they could have brought on board, and even what kinds of clothing they wore.
At 510 feet long, 51 feet high, and 85 feet wide, Noah's Ark stretched an American football field and a half long. The Ark built in Kentucky is the largest timber frame structure in the world, built from standing dead timber, in part by skilled Amish craftsmen. Whether or not you have visited the Ark Encounter, this book will guide you step-by-step through this faith-affirming wonder. Many of the animals that lived during Noah's lifetime didn't look much like the animals we see today. Prepare to have your expectations challenged by a host of incredibly lifelike sculpted animals, along with exotic live animals from around the world in Ararat Ridge Zoo. Plus, you'll learn how Noah could have cared for all the animals and how the Ark was big enough to fit them all on board. 96 pages, hardcover.
Have fun coloring detailed images taken from the original sketches of the Ark Encounter! These inspiring pages also create convenient points of biblical discussion; brief text descriptions reveal deeper insights into historic aspects of shipbuilding, life on board during the journey, and more. Images include Noah's wood shop, the library, the blacksmith shop, animal areas, and more. A great stress reliever and a relaxing way to engage with Scripture! 32 pages, softcover.
Within this engaging, fun, and educational book, you will:
- See what a dog's life can tell us about kinds
- Clarify the issue of kinds versus species
- Study actual cases of animals that show the reality of adaptation versus evolution
With the guidance of various authors and researchers, you will discover how Noah would have only needed a few thousand animals with him, and how he and his family could have cared for all life on the Ark over the course of the year's voyage. Though it is often considered a difficult concept to understand, these pages clearly show the historical reliability of God's Word and how He saved two of every kind of living creature, along with Noah and his family!

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.
Inside Noah's Ark: Why It Worked reveals ancient technology and systems sustainable for the Ark! Learn about:
- How critical issues of fresh water and waste removal are solved
- How labor-saving minimal designs aid in the care of the animal kinds
- About simple tools and strategies for repairs and maintenance of the Ark itself
Refuting the most common arguments against the viability of the Ark, learn how ancient knowledge of bamboo pipes, cisterns, gears, ropes and pulleys, animal-powered machines, and more show how the ship was not just seaworthy, but an actual working vessel. The book also explores how a crew of just eight people could have housed, fed, and watered all of the representatives of the animal kinds.

The book created to address the countless questions asked about the Flood!

This perfect "starter book" on the flood addresses the top questions about the flood in a way that's easy to read but not too simplistic. 336 pages, softcover.
