Item description for Biblical Creationism: What Each Book of the Bible Teaches About Creation & the Flood by Henry Morris...
Overview Does it matter whether Christians believe in a literal 7-day creation? Morris, father of the modern creationism movement, believes it does---in fact, he considers this doctrine to be central to our faith. To prove his point, he illustrates that creation is mentioned in every book of the Bible---from Genesis to Job to Revelation.
Publishers Description Many Christians consider the doctrine of creationism to be a marginal issue -- perhaps not important to our faith. But do you know that the Bible speaks on the subject . . . in each of its 66 books? Henry Morris, the father of the modern creationism movement, has meticulously researched the subject and his classic Biblical Creationism stands as a powerful witness that creation is anything but a trivial issue. From the fall of creation in Genesis, to creation restored in Revelation, we are given insightful clues about God's mighty work. Be amazed at the dialogue Job and his friends have concerning Noah's flood, or Peter's assertion that future generations would scoff at the idea of special creation. This book will enrich the faith of clergy and laity alike.

Good Zeal, BAD Science Apr 21, 2005
This book is revealing a Typical Young Earth Creationism (YEC). These people have a good and great zeal to defend the Christian Faith. I commend them for that. But I must say in a loving way that their method is UNSCIENTIFIC. It is misleading and untruthful. We cannot defend truth by using part-truth. Either way, this is still lying! How can anyone defend a good cause with bad tools? This will destroy the Christian witness of the gospel.
As a theologian and Scientist I must refute the young earth creationist movement. Many Christian Leaders and Theologians are opposing young earth creationism because of their lies. The scientist community (including Christian scientists) rejects the kind of pseudoscience promoted and distributed by YEC.
Today, the evidence against Young Earth Creationism (YEC) continues to accumulate. This leads inevitably to a general conclusion against all Christianity. I am so grieved when I see atheists laughing at the kind of science that is propagated by YEC. Christ's name is being hurt. Why do young earth creationists have to twist facts and lie so much? Well the answer is simple. They do NOT have ANY evidence in science whatsoever! Then, they have to invent it somehow.
This is how they do it. They Say God created the universe (this is right). By using Usher's Genealogy they believe the Bible says the earth is young. (The Bible does NOT say that) Then they say: "We have to prove what we believe by means of science (after all God created science)". But the Science is not helping them. Then they are forced to dig around to find any flaws in science that they can use and abuse. They continue by accumulating anything they can find to make a case (bits and pieces of unresolved issues, like little discrepancies in scientific data and so on). By using scientific language (and their degrees in science) they go out of their fields of expertise and continue their propaganda by misinterpreting and manipulating scientific data, twisting and ignoring facts, misquoting various writers, using the wrong tools for different kinds of measurements, etc. This is lying. If they find one discrepancy out of, lets say one hundred, they choose to ignore the 99 in order to stress the one that fits their theory. This is NOT integrity. Do you call this science?
By doing sound apologetics we need to bring the unbelieving scientists to faith in Christ. Unfortunately this kind of YEC propaganda is doing exactly the opposite. One day they will be held responsible before God. Zeal is not enough; you need wisdom too. YEC do not have any! This is SAD.
A good book with one flaw Jul 11, 2004
This is a good book that clearly shows that creationism is an important part of Christianity instead of just a few contradictory sentences that can be easily abandonded. I just think that Morris goes too far when he claims that every single reference to creation in general supports the idea of creation having happened the way told in Genesis 1. If you use common sense and think critically, this book certainly is worth reading.
Creation from Genesis to Revelation Jun 25, 2003
To those who believe that they can perform an exegetical lobotomy on the Bible and discard the first eleven chapters of Genesis this book comes as a disapointment.
Morris takes us through the many passages in the Bible that speak about creation, the curse and the flood, from Genesis to Revelation, including the teachings of Jesus, the disciples and the apostle Paul. One cannot really make sense of any other of the central doctrines of the Bible, such as sin, death as a result of sin, the need for salvation, the physical encarnation of Jesus, His physical ressurection, the promise of a new heaven and earth without curse and death, apart from the doctrine of creation and the fall.
As I read this book I took the opportunity to read and mark all the quoted texts in my Bible and even found more interesting texts. I had never studied the biblical doctrine of creation before, and I must say that the simple reading of the relevant biblical texts is quite conclusive: theistic evolutionism and progressive creationism just cannot be made compatible with the Bible.
If Jesus, the creator Word, can get himself a new ressurected and special body in a matter of seconds, he can create the whole universe in six days. The opposite also makes total sense.
What's more, when Jesus multiplied the fishes and the loaves of bread and ressurected Lazarus, he didn't need trial and error nor randomness. He just did it right there. After all, the Bible makes it clear that he his the creator and sustainer of the universe, just by his Word. I just don't see why I should have more confidence in human scientists then in their creator.
It takes a lot of argumentative acrobatics to even try to harmonize the hipothesis of evolution with the Bible, but in the end it just won't work. The Bible presents a creator that knows exactly what to do and how to do it. Random mutations is just not his way of creating things. Nor mutations nor natural selection are able to generate all the complex specified information present in living organisms.
The reading of this book made it clear to me that there are good and irrefutable theological reasons to support the biblical model. It also made it clear to me that we are dealing with an whole powerful God that is not very impressed with the science of the guys at Harvard, MIT or Oxford. The Bible says, in the book of Eclesiastes, that there are things that God has done that will never be understood by human beings, no matter how hard they study them.
But what about scientific reasons? In my opinion, you have to start by accepting the biblical account by faith, puting aside all materialistic and antimetaphysical assumptions. No doubt about it. But it is not a blind faith. There are good a priori reasons to this faith. I don't advocate just any kind of blind faith.
But once you accept the biblical notions of special creation, fall, curse, flood, Babel, dispersion and speciation, you will find that it makes sense of the origins of matter and life, the fine tuning of the universe, the fossil record, living fossils, good and bad design, DNA, homology, mutations and natural selection, speciation, irreducible complexity, complex specified information, apes and men, cave men, the emergence of languages and races, the ice age, continental drift, plate tectonics, radiometric dating, etc.
Most of all, it makes sense of the rational, moral and spiritual nature of man and of his longing for God and for eternity.
Thorough and revealing exegesis Nov 16, 1998
This is not a science book, it is a Biblical commentary. As such it is thorough and comprehensive, and the author clearly has extensive Biblical knowledge and not inconsiderable Christian wisdom.
Certain individuals seem to make a hobby of rubbishing books they have not read by authors they dislike. This is an unfortunate irritant we must live with, alongside the benefit of internet book reviews.
Many Christians think that since science has 'proved' evolution, the Biblical creation account must be myth or allegory. However, by examining the many references to Genesis and Creation throughout the Bible, this book shows that such a view is not easy to reconcile with the scriptures. In fact, to anyone who holds that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, belief in evolution or an old earth is untenable.
Many people avoid the issue, by trying to come to some sort of compromise, or more likely, not thinking too much about it.
Be warned, this book could be dangerous. Armed with the Bible's references to a recent creation, you will soon reduce a progressive creationist to bluster and reference to scientific 'facts'. The more committed someone is to a compromise position, the more aggressive they are likely to be. Be careful talking to your vicar/pastor!
Understanding the reality of a recent 6-day creation, brings new understanding to the whole of God's Word, to the Gospel, and to evangelism.
