"Some of the author's conclusions: Noah's flood was a local river flood about 2900 B.C.; the ark was a commercial river barge; Noah was a king of the Sumerian city Shuruppak; the river flood lasted only six days; the ark grounded twice but not on a mountain; after grounding, Noah met other survivors of the flood; the site of Noah's altar has been found and excavated; Noah lived to be 83 not 950."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
