Noah by André Obey( Book )

64 editions published between 1931 and 1979 in 5 languages and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noah, his wife, his three sons and three of the neighbors' girls embark with the animals on God's ark. When the rain ends, the grand beauty of the great waters fills them with rejoicing and they dance around the deck in the dawn of a golden age. But Ham, the canker of the old world, has crept on board. He doubts. He taunts his shipmates with old misgivings and Noah becomes the story of a kindly old man who grows lonely in his faith, who pilots his craft safely to shore in the midst of doubts, and who is rudely deserted by the young folks the moment they touch foot to land. Noah shouts at the heavens, "Are you satisfied? The answer is a rainbow in the sky." -- Publisher's description

Twelve angry men by Reginald Rose( Book )

8 editions published between 1958 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A blistering character study and an examination of the American melting pot and the judicial system that keeps it in check, Twelve Angry Men holds at its core a deeply patriotic belief in the U.S. legal system. The story's focal point, known only as Juror Eight, is at first the sole holdout in an 11-1 guilty vote. Eight sets his sights not on proving the other jurors wrong but rather on getting them to look at the situation in a clear-eyed way not affected by their personal biases. Rose deliberately and carefully peels away the layers of artifice from the men and allows a fuller picture of America, at its best and worst, to form."--Publisher description
