The great deluge is recorded in the early chapters of Genesis, but was it a universal flood or a local flood? Were all the mountains covered, or just those in that area? And what about the animals? Were these representatives of all animals from the entire world, or just those who were local? Or did the ark take only domestic animals?
There is evidence throughout the world of great flooding, but did it all take place at the same time? And what other evidence is there for a flood? Why have so many cultures a flood narrative as part of their ancient history?
In her usual thorough and fair manner, Sylvia Penny presents the evidence that supports, and questions, these two main views.
All Christians will profit and learn from this book.
