It's a scholarly book about the Genesis Flood. Why it is important to believe it, why it is true, and other such facts.
The book is broken down into sections.
Exposition (four chapters)
History (Three chapters)
Science (seven chapters)
Fiction (one chapter of short stories)
Exposition (two chapters).
I have to admit that I found the first couple of chapters tough slogging and I didn't really understand the need for some of the suppositions he made. I just didn't. I needed to more than once ask my pastor hubby just what in the world was this guy talking about. He helped. :) And at times pointed out that a supposition being made was one of MANY different ideas people can have about that particular topic. That was eye opening to me.
The rest of the book followed along fairly well. I learned a lot of science, I learned facts I didn't know before .... such as how animals that didn't need to go on the ark didn't. For instance God didn't have to put worms, centipedes and what not on the ark. They are known even today as being able to survive floods. God put air breathing animals on the ark. I hadn't even THOUGHT about that before so this attention to detail was appreciated.
It was interesting to read the short stories. Based loosely on the sons of the Lamech in Genesis 4. They would have been contemporaries of Noah's children. Not very believable, but interesting none the less. :)
At the end of the book there are a lot of discussion questions. If you were going to read this book as part of a bible study, the questions would be a excellent source for additional thinking.
The book does contain some typos, but nothing bad enough to detract from reading it. It's a decent book that will give you an excellent understanding of the flood and give you a greater appreciation for the need to believe that it was indeed a true event. :)
