This is a pretty well written tale about the world prior to Noah's flood. You probably think right away of some primative society: wrong! Antediluvian sets the Noah story in a high-tech world where much of the solar system has been colonized. In that world, Noah's family is a ruling dynasty of the Solar Union, the King Priest and his family. This family governs the warmer inner planets while the Outer World Federation controls the worlds from Jupiter outward. All these outer world people live in cities under domes, and they long for a "warm world." Thus a huge war begins. The characters are really rather well developed and the story is engaging. There are high tech elements and science fiction style equipment, but they do not dominate the book. Instead the human interactions are where this author shines. The book is fairly accurate to the spirit of the Genesis accounts, but is not a Bible study, although God (Adam's God) does make some appearences in the story. Indeed, I found this book to be a good read and worth the money.
