This book is odd in that it talks of mythical beings and flying transports that I never thought of being in Noah's time. It also challanged my thinking about ancient man, God and His Word and His provision. I would call this book interesting, but not one of my favorites. Read full review

Very interesting premise. "Greek" gods are with the bad guys - descendents of Cain. The "gods" had aircraft and ships with internal power supplies - could they be internal combustion engines? A geode with a internal spark plug has been discovered (see Is this an artifact from Noah's time as fictionalized by Traylor? Over all, very interesting book. Nothing in this book is in discord with the Bible. It expands the framework of the story with good fiction.
