Noah the Movie: True or False


Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. Genesis 6:9

It was interesting to watch how an atheist director interprets a Bible story.  There was a flood and a boat, but there was no real sense of connection between Noah and God. It was by far more Hollywood fiction than biblical truth, but at least people of all walks are dusting off their Bibles to see what the Bible really says.  Here is a list for those that are trying to sort the fact from fiction to help you keep it in perspective.
