It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

AND NOW...THE FIRST CHAPTER:












My Review: This book was quite interesting. I first thought that the book was about The Ark of The Covenant and then was pleasantly surprised that it was about Noah's Ark. My issues with this book are that it is not a Christian book. There are curse words in this book, WAY, WAY TOO MANY! In good concience I can't recommend this book. I am giving it a ship wrecked boat as this will ship wreck your faith.

I like your last comment - how true. Not sure how this one slipped in, but guesssing it is one of the "controversial" ones they mentioned in a recent email

Thanks Mark! I'm not sure if you have seen my reviews before but I use a lighthouse if the book is good and shine a light on the book if it points a path to God, hense the name of my blog Radiant Light. That is why if a book is not truthful or could damage someone's faith I use a shipwrecked boat and say it will shipwreck your faith. I feel that God is using my blog to inform good choices in reading.
