The Genesis Record is the only commentary on the complete book of Genesis written by a creationist scientist. Written as narrative exposition rather than a critical verse-by-verse analysis (although discussions on all important historical and scientific problems are woven in to the narrative), The Genesis Record is equally useful to both the theologically trained and the layperson. Dr. Henry M. Morris writes from the conviction that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are as truly historical as the remaining thirty-nine. This conviction is based not simply on faith but on many years of scientific study as well as the interchange of ideas with many other scientists, (both creationists and evolutionists). In The Genesis Record, you will be conducted by a capable guide through the corridors of earth's early history, providing the background so necessary in understanding all of Scripture. This exploration of the beginning of all things will offer insight into human character and will impact the application of biblical truth to your life in the twenty-first century.Publishers Description
The Genesis Record is the only commentary on the complete Book of Genesis written by a creationist scientist. Written as narrative exposition rather than a critical verse-by-verse analysis (although discussions on all important historical and scientific problems are woven into the narrative), The Genesis Record is equally useful to both the theologically trained and the layperson.
Dr. Morris writes from the conviction that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are as truly historical as the remaining thirty-nine. This conviction is based not simply on faith but on many years of study of the scientific aspects of the Genesis record as well as the interchange of ideas with many other scientists and theologians (both creationists and evolutionists).
Dr. Morris's løgic is compelling in its affirmation of a young earth and universe; he advocates a tight chronology in his exposition. His commentary on the worldwide Noahic Flood reflects his expertise in hydrology and geology.
In The Genesis Record, the reader is conducted by a capable guide through the important corridors of earth's early history, providing the background so necessary in understanding all of Scripture.
Dr. Morris does not neglect application of the Genesis, account to the Christian life. More than thirty years of teaching Bible classes are reflected in the author's insights into human, character and his application of biblical truths to life in the twenty-first century.

|Incredible research for both science and Scripture! Oct 7, 2009|
|Probably one of my favorite books of all time, The Genesis Record is a great book for those who have a hard time understanding Genesis as well as how it relates to mankind and the rest of Scripture. Featuring scientifc interpretation of each passage of the book of Genesis, this book is excellent for devotions and research! Plus, the book is very long, so you will be busy having a fun time reading all of it. It took me a while, but I got through it and was amazed at the vast amount of research Morris did and the unique theories he makes that is still accepted by many theologins and creationists even today! A must buy!|
|outstanding high-quality work Apr 11, 2009|
|I've always been familiar with the story of Genesis and believed in a six-day creation as outlined in Gen 1. This book gave me a lot of new insight into the account of Genesis from a scientific and logical perspective. No matter how much you know, I guarantee you'll learn something interesting or be challenged to think about something in a new light.|
Since the book was originally written in 1976, some of the arguments made are slightly dated. Like anything, it's good to independently research anything that does not immediately click with what you already know. And another downside of the dated writing is that the book does not include the vast amount of evidence discovered over the past 30 years that support the Genesis record (like Mt St Helens, the RATE project, etc).
Of course, if you are not a Christian or are not willing to consider that an all-knowing and all-powerful God might have created the universe like it says in the Bible, then the book might be a leap for you. But if you approach it with an open mind and are willing to consider evidence for God, creation, and the accuracy of the Bible, then it will surely be very interesting to you.
|The Genesis Record Feb 15, 2009|
|I purchased this book titled "The Genesis Record" by Henry Morris due to recommendation by fellow bible teachers as an excellent source of commentary regarding the most controversial book of the bible. My was I amazed at the intense Spirit filled reflection of the book of Genesis by Henry Morris. Although he has gone home to be with the Lord, Mr. Morris has left behind a treasure trove of in-depth information that will aid any serious student of the book of Genesis especially needed in this age where there is rare good expository bible teaching found.|

|Sits next to my Bible. Feb 2, 2009|
|What an amazing book. It is written in a style that keeps your interest high. I'm not just reading this great book, I'm studying it. I wish he had written a commentary on all the books of the Bible. A Pastor can put me to sleep but not this book.|
|Amazing! Dec 6, 2008|
|This is the only commentary that I own. I'm not a big fan of them normally, but as a scientist, I found this commentary to be insightful and applicable. |
