Review: The Flood of Noah:Legends & Lore of Survival by:Hodge/Welch
About the Book:
Cultural accounts of a wicked world, destroyed by a global flood, have been relegated to myth - even the history of Noah's ark revealed in the Bible. Yet, in every corner of the world, you find these legends of a vastly destructive, worldwide flood event. Similarities include: mankind is almost wiped out, some animals are chosen for survival, a craft or other escape mechanism is provided for survival, and water covers everything. Now discover:
*What are these legends, and what intriguing clues do they contain?
*Why do they reveal about their possible common origin?
*Even more great details with this interactive experience of flaps, mini-books, foldouts, and more!
For over a hundred years, scientists have been dismissing the
Bible as a reliable source of information - despite the civilizations
discovered and history revealed that support the history God's Word contains.

Everyone believes they know the story of Noah and the great flood that God descended down among His creation. something that destroyed all of God's children that were misbehaving all but the ones that were abiding by God's word---Noah and his family. Not only do many believers read and know of this mighty act of God, there are many other legends and folk lore throughout history that have referenced this great act of correction.

The authors have researched and collected this information to give you a final synopsis on all things flood-like. Complete with pull outs, fold outs, and many other neat things---this book is a fully functional interactive book. This very large book, but contains very knowledgeable information that to me just proves that the Bible is a true account how anyone ever doubts it is beyond me. And judging by some of the beliefs of other people and religions it seems that they believed in in some for or fashion as well.
This book has 24 pages and is a book that could be used for upper elementary school aged children but could be read and explained to younger elementary students.

My boys and I used the book to gain further knowledge on Noah, the Flood and what others aid or believed in concerning this mass event. We were unaware just how far this all expanded and how many generations believed the same. Even though many of them do not believe exactly as Christians do, it is great knowing how much of an influence God has over so many.
