Noah is a biblical figure who is familiar to nearly everyone. Jews, Christians, and Muslims consider him the hero of the Great Flood, when God destroyed His creation. Because of Noah's righteousness, he and the members of his family were saved from the flood. Thanks to Noah's virtue and trust in the Lord, humans received a second chance. When the waters receded, Noah and his family inherited the entire Earth and all its bounty. The story of Noah provides modern readers with valuable lessons about the importance of faith in God and the requirements of human stewardship over His creation.
