Book Details

Book Information

Written by a creationist scientist as a narrative exposition rather than a critical verse-by-berse analysis, this unique commentary on the whole book of Genesis is equally useful to both the theologically trained and the layperson.

Sometimes it's hard to find resources that uphold the literal, historical nature of the Bible's account of creation. However, this book went far beyond even that expectation. With strong scientific backing and an awareness of the cultural and historical backdrop, Henry Morris approaches the text of the Genesis respectfully and practically. His perspective, while well studied, does not read or feel like a stuffy scholarly essay. It is almost as if he has stepped refreshingly into the pages of Scripture to look only at what it says, apart from the baggage of criticism and the burden of man's conjectures or theories. Like his Creationist views, his interpretations are sometimes counter to the voices of the majority, if only because they desire to see the text as the text presents itself. This is often to his benefit, but on occasion, he argues from silence, or more rarely, his reading something into the text, in a way that yields an odd result. Many of his conclusions, even then, I absolutely agree with, while others may need further study. While I picked this volume up primarily for its notes on the first portion of Genesis, it has remained one of my favorite resources all the way through. It is an inexpensive, yet invaluable resource for any conservative preacher or teacher. As an added bonus, he upholds the beauty and accuracy of the KJV, using that within the body of the commentary

Evangelical commentary written by Young Earth Scientist from ICR. His grasp of Hebrew vocabulary and introductory grammar is good, but it becomes evident that his grammar is limited and his understanding of Hebrew syntax is amateur.
