I have read books on this proposed Ark location first proposed by Ron Wyatt. Read his book and have his VHS tape on it. Read Fasold's book, Deal's 2 books, and other DVDs as well. Nissen's book does not cover everything that the others have, and I recommend them all, but it is my firm opinion that Nissen's book is the best of them all, having the benefit of hindsight in publishing in 2004, after all the others. Nissen did a good job of following up the many loose ends and discrepancies between various parties.

I bought this book wondering if it would bring new material or just live off the work of others. Nissen had added to it. As well, h gathered some of the better bits from the others. He sort of held court amongst all the contestants to settle why there is such disagreement. And listen, the religious world is a full of nasty lying thieves as any other field might have. They are no exception. Nissen wades through it all admirably.

Nissen did what none of the others really have in exploring the reasonableness of the flood account and not just the ark. It is a very good coverage as well, not neglecting Velikovsky and many other directions. Very sound. I did not find any crazy ideas as I have in some of the others. Whether you are a Christian or just like solid reasoning, I think this is your best bet by far. It's the best of the entire genre. If you only want one book about this site in Turkey, this is that one.

I was happy to find a book that advocated the Durupınar site as the resting-place for Noah's Ark. As a sometime "Arkeologist" or "Arkophile," I read these books for fun in hope that the Ark will be found one day. Since reading David Fasold's brilliant "The Ark of Noah" as a young teen I have been convinced that the Ark was not on Ararat as the "experts" supposed, but miles away. But...

My, my this is a horrible book. The 1 star I give it is for the pictures and certain few chapters in Part 3.

Here we go. [Remember, my call for public beatings are metaphorical in nature. Mostly.]

First, the book is beautifully put together: great photographs, glossy photo paper, and the like. But... But, Henri Nissen, the author, is Danish and a journalist. He proves that, as a general rule, most journalists shouldn't try their hand at writing history. There are exceptions. Nissen is not one of them. His narrative is unfocused, his presentation follows no general scheme, and he brings up things that do not touch but tangentially to the story. He should be dragged into the street and publicly beaten for taking a great topic and killing it. He is also proof positive that books should have editors. The rest of the problems with the story must be laid at the feet of the translator: Tracy Jay Skondin (only mentioned in the front matter. I assume from "Tracy Jay" that English is her first language, but you couldn't tell that from her translating work. There are more grammatical and spelling errors here than in a freshman history essay. And I know about that. My favorite misspelling is from page 216: "ostragon.

This book carefully and successfully integrates Biblical scripture with geography and scientific investigation. The reader is neither asked nor required to compromise any fundamental beliefs in order to follow Mr. Nissen's conclusions. It's a GREAT book, albeit slightly overpriced (in my opinion).
