In his new book, Don’t Miss the Boat – Facts to Keep Your Faith Afloat, Paul Taylor looks at the flood of Noah from several standpoints including the Bible, history, and science. He gives many proofs to help build your faith in the Word of God and strengthen readers to defend this truth.
Taylor digs deep into Genesis chapter 6-8 He breaks the chapters down into sections a provides commentary, quoting from many writers such as John Calvin, John Gill, Matthew Henry, John Bunyon, and others. The topics he discusses include the world before the flood, the sons of God and the daughters of men, the flood prophesied, giants, wickedness of men, God’s wrath on man’s wickedness, what it means for God to repent and God’s grace, the ark, Noah’s faith, the flood itself, God’s activity during the flood and remembering Noah, the rainbow, God’s covenant with Noah, what the world was like after the flood, and more.
Taylor looks at the history of ancient civilizations and their flood legends and shows evidence from post-flood civilizations that the Bible is authentic. He also looks at the history of our society and shows why our society as a whole has stopped believing in the flood.
He covers many scientific points that support the flood and shows that study and position of Creation science is valid. He also discusses Creation scientists and their arguments and shows the positive and negative arguments. He discusses the design of the ark, radiometric dating, and the ice age.
The book concludes with some short stories and questions for personal or group study.
Taylor raises many good points about Creation and the flood. This is one of my favorite topics, so I’ve read many books on this topic. This is one of the better books on the subject. I like how he brings it all to the Bible and shows where and how it all fits in Scripture. He covers a lot of science in this book. It’s easy to read and follow and would make a great resource for the study of Creation science and the flood. Highly recommended.
