The Reimagining of Noah
Posted on 11/19/2011 4:22:45 PM PST by truthfinder9
Whether or not you read the Bible, Genesis is a fascinating part of ancient writings. Especially the chapters prior to Abraham as these seem to reach back into prehistory. The style and content indicates that were not getting a year-by-year history, but major highlights of a vast and largely undocumented period in mans history. Hebrew scholars will confirm that the the genealogies in these chapters are unlikely to be complete. Genesis 6-8's talk of Nephilim, sons of God and a massive flood barely outline what was going on in this lost world. Wouldnt it be interesting if someone went back and filled in the details?
Now someone has.

Imagine the last, wild days before the end of a high-tech civilization and a cast of familiar characters thrust into unfamiliar settings. This is the story of Noah and the Ark like you’ve never read it before. About ...

(The denial of original sin is the root of liberalism.)
Yes, liked it. Kind of a “historical fantasy.” Fantasy fans and “Christian fiction” fans should enjoy it.
I would be curious to see how they treat Noah's bloodline and his family being perfect in his generation.
