Noah's ""Hill of Salvation"" has now been found!! You can examine it for yourself using modern satellite imagery! ""The True Story of Noah explores the origins of this well known biblical story from a unique angle. Using related literature and information provided, Barger probes further to understand the likeliest resting spot of the ark. In the process, he provides a deluge of enriching historical information that revolves around Noah and the origins of man. Barger's discourse is intriguing and would particularly spark engaging conversation in a college humanities lecture... references to many familiar figures from creation myths and stories, such as The Epic of Gilgamesh, will keep the reader involved. This book is just as much about the story of how Noah came to be as it is about the final resting spot of the ark. For serious readers of the humanities who have a passion for ancient, biblical history and how it came to be, Barger's story is a worthwhile read."" --Mihir Shah, The U.S. Review of Books

In 'The True Story of Jesus the Christ', author Thomas Kerrins examines the validity of the Story of Creation. To validate the Old Testament narrative of our history, that Jesus himself exists only because of Mankind's rebellion toward God starting with Adam, Thomas uses as evidence the Flood; the trials and tribulations of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and the clues found beneath the sands of the Middle East. He also looks at the followers of Jesus, to find out who they were and what role they played in the beginning of Christianity. Many experts and theologians are quoted, such as Dr. Juris Zarins, who shows through satellite imagery of Iraq, Iran, and Syria, the existence of fossilized rivers pinpointing the possible existence of Eden. Also quoted is Henry Rawlinson, who discovered the Behistune inscription that provided a tool to read another version of creation from a civilization 800 miles from where the Old Testament version of Genesis was written. Furthermore, archaeological evidence will be presented to validate such events as the Exodus, the Kings of Israel, and the invasions from Babylon and Persia. Understanding Jesus was to know who he was and what was his mission.

A far cry from his typical work as a professor, he suddenly finds himself plunged into a battle of worldviews, at war to define how we view history. What if archeologists found something that could change the world forever? What if the world came face-to-face with an artifact so ancient and so controversial that some would go to any lengtha "even murdera "to hide it? With the help of fellow archeologists, the support of a wealthy, God-fearing senator and an insatiable interest in finding the truth, Dr. James is on a quest to uncover one of the most important archeological finds in all of history. But things are not always what they appear, and supposed safety can quickly turn into a fight for their life. An inner-circle of ACLU members will attempt to thwart Dr. James at every turn. Some will stop at nothinga "even murdera " to make sure that Noah's Ark will never be recovered. In "The Search for Noah's Ark," see the battle for truth unfold, as men of wealth and power collide to either reveal the truth they've always hoped existed, or to destroy it forever."

Children's Bibles have been among the most popular and influential types of religious publications in the United States, providing many Americans with their first formative experiences of the Bible and its stories. In Children's Bibles in America, Russell W. Dalton explores the variety of ways in which children's Bibles have adapted, illustrated, and retold Bible stories for children throughout U.S. history. This reception history of the story of Noah as it appears in children's Bibles provides striking examples of the multivalence and malleability of biblical texts, and offers intriguing snapshots of American culture and American religion in their most basic forms. Dalton demonstrates the ways in which children's Bibles reflect and reveal America's diverse and changing beliefs about God, childhood, morality, and what must be passed on to the next generation. Dalton uses the popular story of Noah's ark as a case study, exploring how it has been adapted and appropriated to serve in a variety of social agendas. Throughout America's history, the image of God in children's Bible adaptations of the story of Noah has ranged from that of a powerful, angry God who might destroy children at any time to that of a friendly God who will always keep children safe. At the same time, Noah has been lifted up as a model of virtues ranging from hard work and humble obedience to patience and positive thinking. Dalton explores these uses of the story of Noah and more as he engages the fields of biblical studies, the history of religion in America, religious education, childhood studies, and children's literature.

There is a paradox in American Christianity. According to Gallup, nearly eight in ten Americans regard the Bible as either the literal word of God or the inspired by God. At the same time, surveys have revealed gaps in these same Americans' biblical literacy. These discrepancies reveal the complex relationship between American Christians and Holy Writ, a subject that is widely acknowledged but rarely investigated. The Bible in American Life is a sustained, collaborative reflection on the ways Americans use the Bible in their personal lives. It also considers how other influences, including religious communities and the internet, shape individuals' comprehension of scripture. Employing both quantitative methods (the General Social Survey and the National Congregations Study) and qualitative research (historical studies for context), The Bible in American Life provides an unprecedented perspective on the Bible's role outside of worship, in the lived religion of a broad cross-section of Americans both now and in the past. The Bible has been central to Christian practice, and has functioned as a cultural touchstone, throughout American history, but too little is known about how people engage it every day. How do people read the Bible for themselves outside of worship? How have denominational and parachurch publications influenced the interpretation and application of scripture? How have clergy and congregations influenced individual understandings of scripture? These questions are especially pressing in a time when denominations are losing much of their traditional cultural authority, technology is changing reading and cognitive habits, and subjective experience is continuing to eclipse textual authority as the mark of true religion. From the broadest scale imaginable, national survey data about all Americans, down to the smallest details, such as the portrayal of Noah and his ark in children's Bibles, this book offers insight and illumination from scholars across the intellectual spectrum. It will be useful and informative for scholars seeking to understand changes in American Christianity as well as clergy seeking more effective ways to preach and teach about scripture in a changing environment.
