Item Description...
The story of the Deluge - or the Global Flood of Noah - permeates nearly every culture in the world in some way, shape, or form. While details vary between the different cultures, the same basic element, occur in all versions. In Flood Legends you will discover:
Detailed analysis of myth, legend, and historical details that are clues for a common, global event

Unique research from a comparative study supporting the biblical history

Despite the striking similarities of these accounts, some mythologists have looked at the minor differences in the stories and declared: "This never happened!"

There is another alternative - to accept that the different versions all refer to the same event - passed on from generation to generation, through various developing cultures. Through these legends, this epic event has remained woven into the tapestry of cultural history - sharing not just the story of survival, but the power of obedience, and the fulfillment of God's enduring promise.

Take an informative and revealing journey across the globe as you explore legends from: Africa, Australia, Babylon, British Columbia, Burma, China, Europe, Greece, India, Indonesia, New Guinea, North America, South America, & more.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Enjoyable and educational.  Jan 14, 2010
This book simply goes through 3 major flood myths and juxtaposes them. While there are other flood myths that he cites, the core of the book revolves around 3 specific ones. Very interesting and worth the read.
Investigates the seemingly common coincidence of stories of a great flood in many disconnected societies  Oct 10, 2009
The flood of Noah is the flood of many other men. "Flood Legends: Global Clues of a Common Event" investigates the seemingly common coincidence of stories of a great flood in many disconnected societies throughout the ancient world. All six of the populated continents have a flood legend of some sort, and Charles Martin looks deeper to find the bigger historical significance of this shared trait. "Flood Legends: Global Clues of a Common Event" is of wonder to any with a love for ancient history and mythology's roots.
Short simple introduction to the global (in more ways than one) Flood Legends  Sep 7, 2009
Flood Legends by Charles Martin

In a short 120 pages (and appendices with translations of flood legends), Charles Martin introduces his readers to interpreting mythology. Can myths be true? If they are, how would you know? Focusing on three accounts of a global flood taken from cultures around the world, Charles Martin compares the similarities and differences. Did the legends, and dozens like them, have a common origin? The comparable details indicate not only that the legends are derived from the same story, but that the tale is a common memory of an actual event. Which versions are most likely to be accurate, and why?

On page 119, the author states his reason for investing time in research, translation, and writing Flood Legends: "Contrary to what many may believe upon reading this work, this is not about `proving' a global flood. It reaches deeper, asking us to abandon preconceived ideas and to think. We should be willing to look for connections - not only those connections that dwell in metaphor, but also the kind that dwell in history." By taking the case of the flood legends, so universal in traditional lore across humanity, he demonstrates the prospects that come when we take stories at face value, first testing the possibility of truth before disregarding them as imaginative inventions.

I appreciate the immense effort and talent of the researcher, Charles Martin, whose passion led to this book. Though he was repetitive at times, he made some important points in a simple, straightforward way. The true value of this book to me is the intriguing sample of flood legends found in the appendices.

To God be all glory,
Lisa of Longbourn
