The fact that Miller classifies his tales as "historical" requires an explanation. One of them, his accounts of the first murder recorded in Scripture, is historically accurate in its spirit and its conscription of evil. His second "historical" tale narrates the story of Noah and the construction of his ark, precedent to the global flood. That Noah, by faith alone, constructed his massive ark in the middle of a rainless desert marked him for "strange" and for the ridicule of his village. The balance of the tales deal with the histories of their central characters, and for that reason, the author includes them in his parameter of "historical". This collection marks his fourth volume of short stories.
