The Very Best Commentary on the Book of Beginnings  Apr 22, 2004
Henry Morris is a gifted writer, researcher, and scientist and all of these God-given attributes come out beautifully in his classic commentary on Genesis. I often preach, teach, and write, so anytime the subject is in the first book of the Old Testmant, I immediately reach for my copy of The Genesis Record. It is a thoughtful, accurate guide written from the Creationist Perspective.

And even though Morris is a reknowned defender of the young-earth perspective and the accuracy of the Bible, he also knows quite a bit about the Old Testament. It was very valuable to me for a series of messages I did on the life of Moses.

I would keep this in your library as the first reference on the book of Genesis. It is Henry Morris at his finest.

Analyzing the Genesis Record  Jan 18, 2004
When my instructor told me to read the Genesis Record, I became very excited as I thought I would read about early Phil Collins music. Then I realized, I was actually supposed to read a book by Henry M. Morris. If Biblical scholars were sold at K-Mart, K-Mart would have shelves full of Morris. This guy is an engineer who thinks he can interpret the first and most important book of the Bible. He believes in literal interpretation of the Bible. He takes the big risk of discussing only the obvious passages of the Bible. As if those passages needed interpretation.

While many would say, "Morris allows the Genesis text itself to refute ... stupid theories", I believe Morris has succeeded only in writing 700 pages of speculation, peppered with biblical passages. Still, there is no reference to Phil Collins.

Very enlightening commentary on the ENTIRE book of Genesis  Jan 7, 2004
You'd think that this book only covered the first 2 chapters of Genesis from reading the reviews. Debating aside, I think everyone ought to read the book of Genesis all the way through. It is truly a book of beginnings, and the human experience. There are many interesting explanations presented here, such as the "closing signatures" of each section "these are the generations of <>" fill in the person who wrote that portion. There is the novel explanation of Abraham and Sarah's bodies being miraculously rejuvenated back to youth to have Isaac, instead of the usual picture of two elderly parents. Then there is a long section on Jacob and an attempt at a scientific explanation of the spotted/speckled recessive traits and the striped rods being some kind of cattle and sheep aphrodisiac. The section on Joseph is rich and full of interest, with a detailed analysis of the brothers' two trips to Egypt and how Joseph's harsh questioning and tests brings them to repentance and finally reconciliation. So there is a lot to this book than just the 6 days of creation, if people would read further, they'd find many interesting interpretations to help them gain a better understanding of the events in Genesis and hence the Bible.

Morris does tend to explain away some of the doubtful behavior of the main characters which differs from other commentaries. For example, he excuses Jacob and Rebecca's deception on Isaac as saying that perhaps they thought to save his life, for had he blessed Esau against God's will, maybe there would be repercussions. He also explains Rachel's theft of her father's idols as perhaps it was a way for her to lay claim to any inheritance she felt was due. Meanwhile Dr. J. Vernon McGee tells it like it is in his "Chicken's Come Home to Roost" sermon series where he talks about Jacob's trickery being revisited on him at Uncle Laban's School of Hard Knocks. Dr. McGee doesn't excuse Jacob's behavior nor put on a false-pious veneer. But rather shows how God works with Jacob to bring him into spiritual maturity, by teaching him lessons.

Highly recommended, if I got through this book by reading a little every day on the Stairmaster, you can too.

The Young Earth'ers strike back!  May 7, 2003
Apparently the Young Earth crowd, having lost their stronghold in evangelical churches and clinging to an ever shrinking base among American Fundamentalists, need to do damage control. Let me dispense with one reader's "defense" of Henry Morris:

Point 1: Gen. 1-11 is quoted as literal, journalistic, historical fact by Jesus and the New Testament.

Truth: It is not. Jesus merely said that God made people "male and female" from the beginning - hardly a "proof" that Genesis 1 means a literal 24-hour day. No one is doubting that mankind had a beginning. In fact, both Paul and John say that Genesis 1-3 was an allegory - the snake represented Satan.

Point 2: The 6-day creation theory wasn't original to the 7th Day Adventists. It was held by Luther.

Truth: In a book about creationism endorsed by Morris himself (The Creationists), it is plainly acknowledged that modern young-earth theories stem from the SDA denomination. That people living centuries ago during the dark ages may have misinterpreted Genesis is irrelevant; Luther was an anti-semite who retained most of the Roman Catholicism's false doctrines, suffered from obsessive-compulsive and bipolar disorders, and his church tradition has long since petered out - modern evangelicals are rooted in the Anabaptist tradition and owe next to nothing to Luther. Luther prompted the reformation, but no one considers him a great thinker or theologian, merely a catalyst. By contrast, Augustine, Origen, and other church fathers whose intellectual prowess far outstrips Luther's held Gen. 1 to be symbolic, and this view reigned among theologians for more than 1,000 years. It is worth noting that most common people of Luther's time believed the earth was flat and the sky was made of metal - Chick Little accurately portrays the beliefs of that time period. Do we trust their view of the earth's age?

Point 3: Henry Morris doesn't promote King James Onlyism.
Truth: Henry Morris wrote a LETTER to his followers saying his ministry would only use the KJV because modern Bibles are full of "evolutionary assumptions." This letter prompted a public rebuke from James White.

Henry Morris is scientifically and Biblically unsound. Charges stand!
