Noah and the Flood


As the link to my blog post “Re-Writing Noah: Seven Things You Might not Know about theBiblical Flood Story” ┬áslides off the main Seedbed page, I thought a link to the article here would be handy!

Feel free to comment here or there. I’ll see it wherever you put it.



I'm 60 years old, professor of Old Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky. I love my wife of 36 years, my three adult children and children-in-law. I love our three horses, two cats, and whatever other creatures decide to call our place home. I hate mowing grass, hanging pictures or shelves, or anything involving punching or drilling holes in walls. I love my job of studying and teaching the Old Testament. I've recently contracted a fierce interest in archaeology. I also enjoy guitars, jazz, vintage firearms, airplanes, photography, drystone masonry and, visiting the lands of the Bible.


  1. Hello,
    There was an article/blog post you had made in 2005 “Creation 1-Starting at the Beginning?” – I can’t seem to find it online anymore – Is it still available anywhere, or do you no longer believe that article? Thanks, Stewart

    • Hi Stewart,
      You give me a false dichotomy here! It not being available doesn’t mean I stopped believing what I posted. It’s possible I prefer only to leave posts up for a limited period of time. Or it’s possible a publisher wants me to turn it into a book, and copyright issues make it more convenient to leave it offline. It’s also possible I’ve changed my blog hosting service twice since posting that piece and just haven’t gotten around to freshening it up and adapting it to the new format. If you have some specific concerns about the post, you could always drop me a personal e-mail or message with your question and I’ll be happy to reply. Thanks for reading!
