Take a unique and amazing trip around the globe exploring legends of the global flood of Noah!

Did you know almost every culture has a worldwide flood legend? It’s true! Hundreds of accounts of a wicked world, destroyed by a global flood, have been dismissed as mere myth — even the historical account of Noah’s ark revealed in the Bible. Yet, in every corner of the world, you find these legends of a vastly destructive, worldwide event. They include similar details, such as mankind is almost wiped out, some animals are chosen for survival, a craft or other vessel is provided for safety, and water covers absolutely everything.

  • What are some of these legends, and what intriguing clues do they contain?
  • In what ways do they reveal insights about their possible common origin?
  • What can we learn of pre-Flood history from ancient and archaeological records?

Many point to 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 different cultures? From the astonishing historical flood account of a remote people group in China to the flood legend of Transylvanian gypsies to many other examples from almost every continent, discover a fascinating journey of truth. This is exactly what we would expect as they echo the historical event that devastated the world on a scale never seen before or since. Start your family’s learning adventure today!

My kids and I enjoyed reading this interesting book but I wish it was longer, I was surprised that it was so short even though the pages are very large, thick and full, I would have liked to see more details about every flood legend
Beautiful book!!

We picked this up at the Creation Museum. Beautiful colours and very informative. A great book to have on hand for kids and adults alike. Love how it teaches about flood legends around the world and shows how all these and more help prove the validity of the Biblical Flood.
Beautiful book!

I was a little hesitant to purchase this book because we own many resources on the sub just of Noah’s Ark. So glad I did, the illustrations are beautiful and the content is great too. Interesting book for children and for adults too.
It REALLY happened!!
Review by
So we know the flood really happened, simply because we accept and believe the Word to be true ... but to be faced with real life science, fantastic facts and information, and tidbits from around the WORLD to bring it all to life makes it all come to life in a whole new way. Thanks SO much for this wonderful resource!
