For biblical scholars, arguments in support of the historicity of Noah’s flood collapse when we focus on a literary and theological analysis of the story. In this presentation we will look at flood stories from the ancient Near East, and focus, in particular, on the Genesis flood narrative. Some questions we'll explore: What kind of literature is the flood story? What is the point of the story? And what input does archaeology have to offer?

George Orwell did it perfectly (especially in Animal Farm and 1984), Aldous Huxley brought a very perspective to his epic Brave New World. More recently, Margaret Atwood has given us The Handmaid’s Tale. All three help us in our current struggle to understand fear and hope.
