Review:Don't Miss The Boat by:Paul Taylor

 Don't Miss the Boat: Facts to Keep Your Faith Afloat
About the Book:
Don't Miss the Boat provides various perspectives on the biblical account of the Great Flood that speak to both the technical and scientific evidence we see around the world today. This book contains information for the layman who wants to know the basics, as well as the solid evidence that can be shared with anyone. Theological considerations, historical essays, and scientific implications are included, as well as fictional representations that convey the emotional power of God's judgment on a wicked pre-Flood world, rounding out this unique resource.

My Review:
 There is so much information out in the world about Noah&the flood whether its from a religious standpoint or a secular one.  We as believers just believe and that is really good enough for a majority of us. But others want to understand it more fully and more in depth.

 Paul Taylor author of Don't Miss the Boat, has gathered together several pieces of information from several different standpoints and combined them in one book for you to come to your own realizations on the subject. The book contains several different sections that the author felt would help break down and explain everything better for the readers. Below is a summarized outline:

Exposition:(beginning) Explains the how and why the flood came to be.

History: The history behind the flood as well as the history of the world in Noah's day.

Science: Science behind the flood including explanations of the animals, ark design, flood facts, and the Ice Age.

Fiction: Merely fictional stories derived from names and events from the Bible. Placed in and written by the author to create a further understanding of the events and how they occurred.  And hopefully convey the thoughts and feelings of the people involved and how they may of reacted.

The Gospel According to Noah: a final synopsis of how Noah felt about this whole thing.

And if you would like to study this book in a group setting there has been some discussion questions added at the end of the book.

 I see Noah as a man full of sin just like you&I, but God saw something in him that made Him take notice. God gave him a chance to redeem himself, his family and future generations. Noah went against many people, people that wanted to denounce what he was trying to warn them about. Thank God Noah did as he was commanded. How different would the world be had he not done as God called him to do?
