What I read just reinforced that I didn't need to see it to know that it hadn't stayed true to the book...but I'm not really surprised. After all it's Hollywood....poetic license and all that.
I find it interesting that a Hollywood Director would choose one of the great Biblical stories of all time on which to base a movie. But like many movies based on books, it's always good to go back to book and read the whole story!
So I did just that! I went back and read the book, the biblical account of Noah in Genesis 6. As I read, these verses stood out in my mind:
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.....Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. (vs 8,9)
If someone was recording my story, what would be said about me? Would it say that I had found favor with God? That I was righteous, blameless in my time and walked with God? Something to think about!
And just for fun, I did a bit of research and found this neat article, The Sixteen Grandsons of Noah from Australia's Creation Ministries. It's a great read! Check it out!
