Although written for adults, this book has pictures that bring the Bible story to life for elementary children. Using both maritime science and biblical truth, Lovett gives insight and analysis into what the ark may have looked like - as well as revealing the remarkable skills and techniques needed to build it.

"Remaining faithful to the biblical dimensions, Lovett's updated design, similar to that of ancient ships, is based on established principles in ship design and cutting-edge research. He reveals a feasible ark design, explores the impact of flood waters on the vessel, and provides remarkable insight and analysis into the skills and techniques needed to construct it"

Beautifully illustrated book is a fast read, but one that will be read again and again. The Bible gives very limited information on the design of the ark, but Lovett extrapolates what is there. He shows that any other dimensions to the ark would have sacrificed strength, stability, comfort, or safety. He adds other design features that aren't included in the Biblical description, but were certainly necessities (ventilation, food and water distribution, cage design). Other sections summarize Biblical and geological evidence of a worldwide, as opposed to local flood. Recommend buying the book with 1/2 hour DVD. They are companions, but despite the phrase "DVD Edition" here and on Amazon, there is no DVD included.

This groundbreaking book asks you to "think outside the box" as you consider new research by naval expert and mechanical engineer Tim Lovett. Presenting an innovative new study on Noah's ark, Lovett builds on traditional research into this historic event using the latest techniques in computer modeling and testing. Remaining faithful to the biblical dimensions, Lovett's undated design, similar to that of ancient sailing vessels, is based on established principles in ship design and cutting-edge research. The beautiful illustrations and fascinating facts given in the book will assure believers of the truthfulness and infallibility of the Bible. Using both maritime science and biblical truth, Lovett gives a compelling new insight and analysis into what the ark may have looked like - as well as revealing the remarkable skills and techniques needed to build it.
