Description
According to the Bible there once lived a race of giants. The giants were greedy and violent and they turned away from God. Only one man pleased God at this time -- Noah. God chose Noah to tell the giants to change their ways, or e would destroy the world with a great flood. But the giants just sneered, so God instructed Noah to build an ark and collect a male and female of every creature on the earth. Miraculously, the ark helped to build itself, and the animals came on their won -- even some no one knew existed, such as the og and the rayeem. It rained for forty days and forty nights, drowning the giants and leaving only Noah, his family, and the animals alive. On the day the rain stopped, God gave Noah an important promise in the form of a special sign that would serve as a reminder of their pact until the end of time.

Mordicai Gerstein uses legends that have arisen around the story of Noah to create a richer, more detailed version of this familiar Biblical tale. His intricate oil paintings further enhance the drama of the text, making this a refreshing and valuable telling of an old and cherished story.
