The Biblical catastrophic judgment on mankind echoed in the flood legends that survive to this day!
Hundreds of legends — possibly as many as 600 — seem to point to many of the details familiar to those who have read the Biblical account of Noah and the ark. Why are there so many similarities in these legends among so many diverse cultures? Why are there differences? What can we learn of pre-Flood history from ancient and archaeological records? From the astonishing historical flood account of a remote people group in China to the flood legend of Transylvania gypsies to many other examples from almost every continent, discover a fascinating journey of truth! These legends are what we would expect to find as remnants of a historical event on the scale we have never seen before or since!
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 chose for survival, a craft or other escape mechanism is provided for survival, and water covers everything.
• What are these legends, and what intriguing clues do they contain?
• What do they reveal about their possible common origin?
• Exciting details presented with an 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.
About the Author:
A speaker, writer, and researcher for Answers in Genesis, Bodie Hodge has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
His specialty was a subset of mechanical engineering based in advanced materials processing, particularly starting powders. He is the author of The Fall of Satan, The War on Christmas, co-author of Dragons: Legends & Lore of Dinosaurs and The Flood of Noah. During his years at SIUC (a secular college), he continued his personal study of biblical apologetics, and even began teaching this topic to a junior high church class. While at SIUC, he was the president of one of the few Christian RSOs (Registered Student Organizations) called Christians Unlimited, and was also an officer in the student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. After earning his master’s degree, he accepted a position of Visiting Instructor at SIUC and started in the fall semester of 1998. He was only 24 years old when he began teaching undergraduate engineering courses at the university.
After working for SIUC for a couple of years, Bodie accepted a position as a test engineer through Aerotek Engineering to work for Caterpillar Inc. in Peoria, Illinois at the Peoria Proving Ground. While working at Caterpillar, he taught apologetics to junior high and high school students at his local church, which was a natural outcome considering his love for science, history, and theology. He did this until taking a position with Answers in Genesis in 2003.
