A beautifully illustrated book that explains the story of Noah beautifully.
Noah was a God-fearing man and had three sons. One day, God told Noah to build an ark for all animals and his family as he was going to send a frightening flood to wipe the world clean. Noah started to build an ark and to his surprise, people started to laugh at him. Noah started gathering the animals and birds inside the ark two by two. It started to rain for forty days and forty nights.
After the rain stopped, Noah sent a raven it didn’t return to the ark until the water receded from the earth. Then he sent a dove to see if the water had dried, but that dove returned with nothing. After some days he sent the dove again and it bought back an olive leaf. After seven days, he released a dove again, but this time it didn’t come back to the ark.
Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease
They came out of the ark and saw the ark resting on the top of Mount Ararat. A beautiful rainbow was in the sky and God made a promise to Noah that “All the world I’ll flood no more. And when you see a rainbow, of my promise you’ll be sure”
