8 O'Clock at the Ark

Penguins love a debate. This includes various issues regarding God. Does God see everything? Does he lay down rules? Or maybe he doesn’t exist after all? Three penguins are having a heated debate when it begins to rain: The Flood. They manage to secure two tickets for Noah’s Ark, but what about Penguin No.3? Without batting an eyelid the other two smuggle him on board the Ark. An eventful journey begins...

In a manner both wonderfully comic and rewardingly substantial this book asks many important questions about God and life in general without rushing to easy answers.
