Description

The end of the Flood story is often overlooked and Noach's choice to send two birds out is enigmatic. Why does he deliberately choose a raven, then a dove? What was he trying to find out? What did he, in the final analysis, learn from these avians? The importance of the reader putting himself into the "shoes" of the actors - "POV" - is underscored in the resolution of these questions.
