    Although a version of the Flood myth that pre-dates the Old Testament by a millennium was discovered in 1872, how the story came to be incorporated in Genesis remained shrouded in mystery until Irving Finkel encountered the 'Ark Tablet' in 2009. In this very engaging book, he describes the detective work that revealed a tablet of cuneiform writing giving instructions for building the Ark and he explains how the old story found its way into the Bible. American-cut pages. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
