DeFuniak Springs, FL (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
The human race consists of many different types of people, and sometimes, these differences can cause contention, strife, injustices, and unspeakable inhuman acts. Yet, the frailties of being human have not been powerful enough to destroy the beauty of Noah's Family.
Noah’s Family: The Story of Mankind, written by Alonzo Holmes, investigates and closely examines biblical passages, historical evidences as well as weighs the validity of sources with regards to God’s creation of a diverse humanity that struggles to live in harmony and far from the will of God.
From 1991 to 1996, Holmes served as a correctional officer in the Florida Department of Corrections through which the Holy Spirit began to impart to him the Noah’s Family revelation. He later understood that the descendants from Noah’s three sons resemble the prison population that he was assigned to. The diversity in color and ethnicity among its inmates was quite obvious and cannot be ignored. Such was the diversity and variety that it often presented problems. Conflicts would arise as a result of the population’s diverseness.
During the Biblical times, Noah's Family wrestles with the will of a loving Father, who desires the best for His creation. It reflects how human beings still attempt to have a viable future apart from their Creator and Heavenly Father. Holmes believes that hatred, bigotry, and extreme variance are still major obstacles to harmony. Everyone should understand that mankind was created to be powerful and have dominion on earth but not apart from the will of God.
Even today, the United Nations makes an effort to make the world a better and more peaceful place to live despite a diverse humanity. Many great men and women have lived and died since the days of Noah’s generation. They have tried their best but their efforts resulted only with minimal success and not one that is long lasting or everlasting. However, this book teaches readers to continue to strive to live in a better world. After all, man is created in the image and likeness of God. His creation of humanity is beautiful in all of its diverseness, notwithstanding the flaws of human nature. By reading Noah’s Family: The Story of Mankind, readers will also learn that the ultimate human potential is possible only through the grace and truth of Jesus Christ.
