Item Description...
The Greeks knew exactly who Noah was: they called him Nereus, the Wet One. Noah was not some vague figure remembered by a few maverick Greek artists. Greek artists and sculptors actually defined the rapid growth of their contrary religious outlook in direct relation to Noah and his loss of authority. Greek artists portrayed the VICTORY of their man-centered religion as the simultaneous DEFEAT of Noah and his Yahweh-believing children. The 12 labors of Herakles (the Nimrod of Genesis) sculpted on the temple of Zeus at Olympia (Section III), in and of themselves, chronicled and celebrated mankind's successful rebellion against Noah and his God after the Flood. The most important part of this book may be Section IV which explains why the scholarly world remains blind to the obvious and simple historical truths expressed in ancient art. The book includes over 130 illustrations, including computer reconstructions of ancient sculptures by Holmes Bryant. You will understand the meaning of ancient Greek art once you've read this book.

Mythology's Origin in Reality  Jul 15, 2009
Author Robert Bowie Johnson has hit on something facsinating. This book, Noah in Ancient Greek Art, and his previous book, The Partheon Code are a must read for anyone interested in ancient civilizations, oral literature, ancient mythology, and even the big question posed by Paul Gauguin in his painting Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? When I was a student in college studying literature, I was amazed that the scholars could find no better explanation for the origin of Greek mythology than that the Greeks dreamed it up. I did not believe that such a civilization that produced so many great thinkers and artists could be duped into believing fantastic fabrications or dreams devised by clever story tellers or a priestly-king class. Or, that their curious and rational minds could be satisfied by implausible explanations. The ancient Greeks were very rational people. The origin and meaning behind ancient Greek mythology has been hidden in plain view for centuries until now. Every so often someone has a remarkable insight into a mystery that has puzzled many. I think Mr. Johnson has had such an insight.
Noah in Greek art  May 9, 2009
This was a great book! I have been reading history books for fun for over 60 years and nowhere have I ever read a more intelligent and sound assessment of ancient greek art. It was truly eye opening. The author obviously had a very good education and comprehension of his subject and wasn't just making it all up as he went along.
noah in ancient greek art  Jun 21, 2008
very good... Brings LIFE to the Bible. Made me look at and rethink Greek History and 'myth'. Includes some Bible references for matching and comparison. Makes a necessary point that 'scholars' refuse to make these comparisons or to EVER even consider the creator theory and shows how ridiculous the evolution theory really is. The more science knows... the more likely the creator theory is the truth. Also has photos of Ark site and matching Biblical references.
Genesis Describes Noah; the Greeks Depicted Him  Dec 28, 2007
This is a great, great book. I couldn't put it down. One astounding surprise after another, presented with illustrations of ancient art in a plainspoken, matter-of-fact way. Finally, ancient Greek art makes sense. As the Noah book avails itself of the "Look Inside" feature, you can see the front cover full-size. Those are ancient images of the Greek version of Noah! Please think about that, and its implications. Also, check out the images and text on the back cover. If that doesn't make you want to read the book, nothing more I can write will. I also highly recommend the author's hardback: THE PARTHENON CODE: MANKIND'S HISTORY IN MARBLE The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble.
