Noach, the innovator, the preacher, the builder, the savior of mankind, was, indeed, a vast and complex personality. In both his strengths and his tragic foibles, he proved very much to be a figure recognizable in our day. While he may have been a righteous man in his generation alone, the breadth and depth of his character make him a giant for all times.
