6. The Sinners and the Sea: The Untold Story of Noah’s Wife

Kanner, Rebecca. The Sinners and the Sea: The Untold Story of Noah’s Wife.

51ux4ywxubl._sy346_

The young heroine in Sinners and the Sea is destined for greatness. Known only as “wife” in the Bible and cursed with a birthmark that many think is the brand of a demon, this unnamed woman lives anew through Rebecca Kanner. The author gives this virtuous woman the perfect voice to make one of the Old Testament’s stories come alive like never before.

Desperate to keep her safe, the woman’s father gives her to the righteous Noah, who weds her and takes her to the town of Sorum, a haven for outcasts. Alone in her new life, Noah’s wife gives him three sons. But living in this wicked and perverse town with an aloof husband who speaks more to God than to her takes its toll. She tries to make friends with the violent and dissolute people of Sorum while raising a brood that, despite its pious upbringing, develops some sinful tendencies of its own. While Noah carries out the Lord’s commands, she tries to hide her mark and her shame as she weathers the scorn and taunts of the townspeople.

But these trials are nothing compared to what awaits her after God tells her husband that a flood is coming—and that Noah and his family must build an ark so that they alone can repopulate the world. As the floodwaters draw near, she grows in courage and honor, and when the water finally recedes, she emerges whole, displaying once and for all the indomitable strength of women. Drawing on the biblical narrative and Jewish mythology, Sinners and the Sea is a beauti­fully written account of the antediluvian world told in cinematic detail.

7. Then The Deluge Comes

McAdoo, Caryl. Then The Deluge Comes (The Generations Book 2). Caryl McAdoo, 2015.

51jzmzlwyql

Obedience assures the preservation of life.
Nine hundred and thirty years have passed. Evil has overtaken the sons of Cain and fills the earth with lasciviousness and violence. God declares He will not contend forever with man. Eight generations surround Adam’s deathbed. Sixth generation Jared fathered Enoch who begat Methuselah.

These grandfathers plant a forest of gopher trees though they don’t know why except that God put it on their hearts. Methuselah rears his son Lamech who becomes father to Noah, the only one of the tenth generation to walk perfect before the Lord and hears His word.

MAKE THEE AN ARK OF GOPHER WOOD; ROOMS SHALT THOU MAKE IN THE ARK, AND SHALT PITCH IT WITHIN AND WITHOUT WITH PITCH

Evil, too, heard the word of the Lord, and Lucifer and his angels war in the Heavens to destroy the earth’s inhabitants. With each child that is passed through the fire, their battle songs grow stronger, but the Lord works in mysterious ways.

Noah’s wife bears him three sons, Japheth, Ham, and Seth, and together all the men embark on the massive task of building the giant ark. Methuselah means ‘when I die, the deluge comes’, and as the vessel of their salvation nears completion, he joins the grandfathers in Paradise. One week later, the rain–which has never fallen on earth before–begins.

8. Replenish the Earth

McAdoo, Caryl. Replenish the Earth (The Generations Book 3). Caryl McAdoo, 2015.

51jzn9zfu3l

God always has a good plan for the righteous.

Sin fills the world with violence, but faith carries Noah and his family above the flood through the storm. In the harshness of Mount Ararat where they disembark, nothing compares to the lushness of Adam’s Valley—their home left behind. And troubles surviving the thirteen months on the Ark can’t match the struggles they face to forge new lives in a hard land where the mist no longer rises up every evening…where instead of a protective covering cloud of water above, the brutal sun beats down and unpredictable storms batter the inhabitants. Still, the Lord has given the sons of Noah a mandate. REPLENISH THE EARTH

9. Flood: The Story of Noah and the Family Who Raised Him

McPherson, Brennan. Flood: The Story of Noah and the Family Who Raised Him (The Fall of Man Series Book 2). McPherson Publishing, 2017.

51ezzv0di2l

What if the story of Noah and the ark isn’t what you thought it was? What if, instead of being a story about God’s judgment, it’s actually one of the most powerful illustrations of God’s mercy?

Nearly two thousand years after Adam and Eve eat death into existence, the flavor still echoes in their descendants’ tongues. War is sweeping the world from the iron throne of a man who calls himself the God-King.

Caught in the crucible is a young family broken by loss and carried along by the prophecies spoken over the infant boy who fits in their hands.

Will little Noah grow to be the savior the world needs? Or will bending his bow come easier than bending his knee to the God who holds his destiny?

Beginning before Noah is born and continuing on until the world is washed clean, FLOOD is a stunning story about family and forgiveness in a world filled with pain.

Noah strains to hear the voice of God, through the warnings of a prophet, through the kind teachings of his grandfather Methuselah, through the loving concern of his family, and ultimately through personal confrontation. The message he receives is terrifying. Will he find the courage to obey?

Opposition intensifies to the call he has received, but a precious medallion handed down from ancient times reminds him of who he is, a man with a heart of a lion.
