I was searching through Pfeiffer’s A Biblical World and was surprised that there was no reference to be found of Noah’s Ark, but several references to Noah himself.

Here’s another link which addresses the disparity within Christian circles who argue over various perspectives on creation. I thank Jasvir Basi for posting this excellent article which addresses how a dangerous modern gnosticism has entered into this debate. The article is a studied response to a talk by a Wheaton Professor. A link to his speech is included if you desire to catch the entire context.

“God made history and history matters. Apart from the conviction that our faith is a historical faith, we are left only to cast about. But, when we are fully persuaded that sacred history meshes with the history in which we live and move and have our being, that is when biblical faith becomes a real possibility…. The heart-and-mind value of reconnecting the biblical world with the ‘real world’ can hardly be overstated. Somehow in our confused modern-day thinking, we have managed to put asunder what God has joined together.”
