Nicki writes in a very personal manner that makes Flooded a very easy read. She draws on personal experiences to connect with the story of Noah found in Genesis. She includes practical advice for Christian living through each of the examples.
Nicki did her research for the book including a trip to the Ark Encounter which features a full-size Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions given in the Bible, spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, a modern engineering marvel.
As a part of the review I did not use the workbook, which may have been beneficial as I felt like something was missing as I read the book. I kept wishing the author would go deeper - the surface was just being scratched and then she would move on to the next chapter. The personal stories could be shorter so that the topics can be discussed further.
Also as I read the book I had no desire to pick up my Bible - this is a pet peeve of mine. I feel that Christian authors and teachers should inspire us to open our Bibles, to seek truth. (I am a big fan of the Bereans) At the beginning of the book the author could have asked the reader to read the account of Noah in scripture. Many only know the abbreviated version that they learned in Sunday School.
I know, I could have chosen to do that on my own initiative but I am frustrated with the pop culture version of Christian living, I want to go deeper and raw about life.
So I would suggest that you read this book along with the study guide because I think you would benefit from it. There is also a video study that includes 6 sessions, the first one is below. All these videos can be found on YouTube.
