A Commentary On Genesis 1-11
by Carl J Lawrenz and John C Jeske
2004 by NPH

Carl Lawrenz and John Jeske, have, between them, taught courses on Genesis to every class of students at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wisconsin, for half a century. Each author brings a scholar's knowledge of biblical Hebrew, a high view of Scripture as the verbally inspired and inerrant written Word of God, and a keen understanding of God's plan of salvation centered in Jesus Christ.

About Genesis 7 they write, "The preceding paragraphs are not an attempt to prove in a lawyer-like way the truthfulness of the Genesis flood account or to somehow make it more believable.  Our purpose is to help the earnest Bible student visualize more clearly this important chapter of world history, and especially of Bible history.  Finally, what God says is true whether it seems reasonable or not.

The People's Bible series
by John C. Jeske
1991 / 2001 by NPH

Excerpt:  "Many Bible students today treat chapters 1-11 as symbolic, as sort of a parable.  But as you read the flood narrative, you recognize at once that this does not read like a parable.  The precise dating of events by year, month, and day of Noah's life, for example, convince us that this is historical narrative.  ... If I am free to call the flood narrative a parable, what's to stop me from calling the teaching of Christ's virgin birth, the account of Christ's bodily resurrection, or the prophesy of his second coming a parable?"

The Vast Wastelands of Unbelief
by Jeffrey Stueber
2014 Tate Publishing
This book surveys and critiques the claims made by dozens of well-known atheists.  Learn through actual atheist quotes how they claim morality, conscience, and belief in god came about through unguided evolution.  Study the claims you may hear while witnessing to atheists, skeptics, and free thinkers.  Quotes are documented in 192 endnotes. 

The author serves on the LSI Board of Directors.  He writes:
   “So God is worth ruminating on to such a degree that even skeptics cannot stop thinking about him.” (page 22)
   “What I have clearly done here is show her [Susan Blackmore] beliefs are internally inconsistent –as much as if I had issued a statement to a friend of mine that everything I say is a lie and then told him that I was lying.” (page 47)

by Delmar Dobberpuhl
2011 by Delmar Dobberpuhl

Noah - Obedient Builder
by John A. Braun
2004 by NPH

quote: "Those who believe what the Bible says about Noah and the flood are not a group of demented fanatics.  They are rational people. Some have advanced degrees in sciences.  But the test for truth is not whether or not it sounds reasonable, but whether or not God has revealed it. 

Answers the questions:
-- Did the flood actually happen?
-- How could all the animals fit on the ark?
-- Did dinosaurs make the trip?
-- Is the ark still on Ararat?

Review and summary by Krug
Review by Lawrenz
Review by Sponholz

How can we explain the coming together of all the animals and birds from all parts of the world at one time?  How was it possible for eight people to feed and provide drink for all the different animals in the Ark for over a year?  How was it possible for them to clean the Ark?  Where did all the water come from?  Is there actually enough water on our planet to cover the entire earth?  What became of all the water when the Flood subsided?  Did the Flood waters rise to an elevation to cover such lofty heights as Pike's Peak, Mount Everest, Mount McKinley?
