Enter to Win This Retelling of the Flood Story by Caryl McAdoo

      The great flood of Noah's day; whether you're a Christian or not, you've probably heard of it. Towers of water rising, ever rising, thunder clapping, and one giant boat floating above the fray. This week you can enter to win Caryl McAdoo's retelling of the flood story, Then the Deluge Comes.

This week only, the prequel to Then the Deluge Comes, A Little Lower than the Angels, is free on Amazon. Get your free e-copy here: http://www.amazon.com/Little-Lower-Than-Angels-Generations-ebook/dp/B00P4UXEU4/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Series: The Generations series brings to life the famous men of God’s Word beginning with the first Adam and ending before the birth of the second.

THEN THE DELUGE COMES

        Obedience assures the preservation of life. By Adam’s death, evil overtakes the sons of Cain filling the earth with lasciviousness and violence. God declares He will not contend forever with man. But, Noah, the only one of the tenth generation to walk perfect before the Lord, hears His word.
MAKE THEE AN ARK OF GOPHER WOOD;  ROOMS SHALT THOU MAKE IN THE ARK, AND SHALT PITCH IT WITHIN AND WITHOUT WITH PITCH
With the help of his father Lamech, and Grandfather Methuselah—whose name foretells when the deluge will come—Noah and his three sons embark on the massive task of building the giant boat with no idea why except that God said.
Evil, too, heard the word of the Lord. Lucifer and his angels war in the second heaven to steal, kill, and utterly destroy the earth’s inhabitants. With each child passed through the fire, their battle songs grow stronger, but the Lord works in mysterious ways.

Look Inside When the Deluge Comes
        [The flesh of earth’s first man has just died after nine hundred thirty years of living. His soul and spirit descend now to Paradise.]

Downward, Adam floated. Eve’s arms wrapped tight around him, but seemed so much stronger now. He held her firmly. Winged men surrounded him slowing his descent, and his wife snuggled in closer, covering her scar in his side like she had so many times in the past. Blue sky, greenery, and flowers…just as he’d seen in the vision.
Then it all vanished, and he found himself back in Eden. The Great I Am Himself, bent down on one knee and scooped a handful of clay.
The Father’s heart swelled with love as he fashioned his man. Tears welled as Adam witnessed his own creation and knew Abba’s overwhelming, everlasting love. What a wonderful gift, being allowed to see such a marvel. Then the first time he successfully climbed onto Lion’s back and raced through the garden with his hands flung high into the air. He laughed aloud. What fun!
How he had missed his old friend, yet so many years passed without thinking of him in the valley. Hadn’t realized how lonely he was without his Lion and all the rest to run and romp with. And now, he’d see Him again and be able to thank Him for His great sacrifice, repent for his sin that had separated him from the best friend he’d ever known.

What Others Are Saying: 
I loved Then the Deluge Comes! Great job! Well worth the read! Terrific, terrific, terrific. Great story!
--Leah Jones, reader, Morrow, Arkansas

Then The Deluge Comes by Caryl McAdoo is beautifully written. This novel concentrates on the story of Noah, leading up to the flood. She takes nothing away from the biblical story, but enhances it. The characters are fully developed, becoming more three dimensional than in the Bible.
As with book one, not only does the reader see the earthly version of the story, but there are glimpses of the heavenly one too. This helps to remind the reader that all of life is a spiritual battle against the forces of darkness. One must always be ready and wearing the full armour of God.
Then The Deluge Comes can actually help to understand the original Bible story. Parts of the Old Testament that can be confusing, are made much clearer. There is so much beauty in Caryl McAdoo's retelling of the traditional story that the reader just revels in the language. It will leave you feeling calm and peaceful, and you will be glad that you picked it up.
--Julia Wilson, teacher and reader, United Kingdom
