The Mountains of Ararat

Ever since I was a child I have always loved the story of Noah's ark.  Seeing the cute little photos of the animals going in two by two and imagining how it must've been to be in the ark with them for such a long time can set your imagination running wild.

When you read the story you find the account to be so amazing that it couldn't possibly be true but it is!  It really happened and Lutheran pastor Aaron Simms took a trip around the world and up the mountain of Ararat to prove it.


I have to say that I really enjoyed this book.  I love Pastor Simms simplistic writing style and the entire account of his trip with his son and follow brothers in Christ to find the ark.  Interwoven through the story of the treacherous climb up Mount Ararat, Pastor Simms ponders different aspects of the story of Noah and the parallels to the Christian faith.

Many say that this account is a fabricated story and that the proof isn't proof enough but I say that's where faith comes in.  Even if you don't believe the story of Noah's ark to be true, this book is still a wonderful tale of adventure, brotherhood, and overcoming major odds.  Highly recommend!
