My husband really wanted this book, but our oldest son took off with it. He is enjoying reading about the size and dimensions of the Ark. Hopefully dad will get to read it soon.
Great companion book to the Ark Encounter book

This book answers questions my son had about the Ark Encounter book and how this ark was constructed in modern times. Really shows why building the Ark during ancient times was such a process.
Great book!

My family and I have visited the Ark and it is AMAZING! What a gift from the Lord to put it on Ken Ham's heart to build it and make the way for him to do that. This book is cool because it shows the process to which they went through to build it. Awesome to get and idea of what Noah was looking at as he and his family worked on the ark.
So interesting!!

We visited the Ark a couple of years ago and were just amazed at its sheer size!! Love the detail in this book of how it all happened. I am so thankful for the vision and obedience of Ken and his team to reach the world through these exhibits!
