The New York Times has published an interesting article about a Dutch businessman who is nearing completion of a full-size replica of Noah’s ark. Yes, it is 450 feet long, three stories high, 75 feet wide, and made of Swedish pine.
Johan Huibers, owner of a construction company and builder of the ark, explained his reason for building it: “It is to tell people that there is a Bible. And that, when you open it, there is a God.” Huibers is apparently a man of few words, but he makes them count!
According to the Times, Huibers has discussed his project with business associates in Israel. Huibers reports: “They say it’s not a Christian ark, it’s a Jewish ark. They say I stole it.”
