Excellent Theological Fiction!

This book has to be the best out of the entire saga of the Murray family! Not only is it original and through provoking, but it managed to include morals and fascinating Bible characters without being preachy or lame. Though there are a few aspects of the novel that tend to be "mature" -- for example, the Nephilim, who are angels that abandoned heaven to marry the daughters of men -- it really is aimed at readers of all ages. L'Engle truly is a gifted and poetic writer, and I savor all of her wonderful descriptions. The characters, though based on actual people, still manage to retain a certain uniqueness that is no doubt created by the author's wonderful use of the English language. I adore theology, and coming across a rare gem like this was an absolute joy! I highly recommend it for anyone who would love to read something other than the usual ficiton novel.

Biblical fiction and a new book in my favorite series.

I was slightly sceptical when I was given Many Waters as apresent. I had read the three other books in the series, and was seton being a purist with the trilogy. I finally gave in and read this story which took me by suprise. Her story finally gives Sandy and Dennys a chance to experience something deeper than their limited minds had allowed them to in the last 3 books. On top of that, Ms. L'Engle weaves the twins into the fictionalized "behind the scenes" version of Noah's story in Genesis, pre-flood. I finished it in a matter of two nights. This was for me, as another reviewer noted, the first realization that Ms. L'Engle is a Christian writer. I immediately re-read all three original books with a fresh understanding of the underlying idea she was getting across. It was an instantaneous blessing for me. If you like these books, C.S. Lewis' Narnia Chronicles & Space Trilogy are musts. It really doesn't matter how old you are, there are blessings in these books for the young and the not-so-young! But don't take my word on it. Read it for yourself!

Read this book!

I am a big fan of Madeleine L'Engle, and I've read most of her books. I liked every one, especially Many Waters. I believe that Madeleine was very imaginative in telling the story of Noah and the Ark. If you are looking for an adventure, read this book!


I read this book a number of years ago and by far this is my favorite book by Ms. L'Engle. This is the story that I always remember of hers, an author whose writings I began reading in fifth grade and continue to read as a college student. Many Waters is particularly special for me because it was the first mainstream novel that I read during young adulthood that dealt with an entirely biblical story and I was incredibly impressed with the accuracy of the retelling. After reading Many Waters I re-read the biblical story of Noah and found that although L'Enlge took artistic lisence in her fictional reproduction, her story actually was very closely related to the history. Although the space/time travel is fictional, her account of the time period is beautiful and inspiring. I also love the story because it was what first made me realize that L'Engle is a Christian. Having always loved her works and then discovering that she has many works specifically about Christian faith, devotionals, and her own personal thoughts and reflections is wonderful. She is my favorite author, but she is also a very popular author in many age groups. She was inspiring to me because she is a very public personality who shares my most personal faith. But more than that, she is willing to open up her heart, her mind, and a piece of her soul to share The Message. Not only is this extremely important for those young adults for whom this story is geared, but her writing is bold, inspiring, and lovely. Her words are read by so many and her message so personal that not only does it influence those who have not heard the Word, but those who have, and who cherish it.
