Theology and Illustrations

March 14, 2012 by Rieshy

I was reading the story of Noah to my 5 year old out of an illustrated children's story Bible this morning.  While I read my son was busy counting.

"Mom, who are the men building the arc?"

"That's Noah and his sons," I answered as I attempted to turn the page.

"Wait a minute, Noah didn't have 5 sons.  Who are those other guys?  They are working really hard and they don't look evil."

The story of the flood is not really a cuddly, pastel-colored children's story.
