Possibly the only book of its kind, Creation and the Second Coming captivates the reader by linking our origins with our destiny. Blending biblical stories like Noah andJesus teaching His disciples, Dr. Henry Morris weaves an intriguing resource for prophecy and creationism buffs.
A prolific and influential scholar known to believers and skeptics alike as "the father of modern creation science," Dr. Henry M. Morris truly was a man of science and a staunch man of God. He was even said to have set the terms of debate about evolution for the second half of the 20th century by one Pulitzer Prize-winning academician. Dr. Morris began his serious study of the Bible in the 1930s and authoring books in the 1940s, but it was his landmark work, co-authored with Dr. John Whitcomb, titled The Genesis Flood in 1961 that influenced generations to begin discovering the fallacies of evolution and the biblical truth of creation.
With over 60 books, founding and leading the Institute for Creation Research (ICR), Dr. Morris death in 2006 was a profound loss to millions.
Dr. Morris created a thriving legacy that continues to equip many Christians to be able to defend the accuracy and authority of Scripture today. The new Henry Morris Study Bible and other resources that he developed remain essential sources of knowledge and understanding for believers.

Debra BrinkmanYoder, COAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Respectful tone, w/o "I have all the answers" toneJuly 31, 2011Debra BrinkmanYoder, COAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've had the chance to read Creation and the Second Coming by Henry Morris here recently, and this is a unique book. End Times prophecy, of course, you can find all over the place. Creation resources are pretty common now too. But combining the two? End Times prophecy in light of the Creation account? I'm sure I've not seen that before.
This book was a nice change of pace for me aesthetically -- a normal-sized font with some actual white space on the page. That made for a pleasant reading experience.
I'll start off with my biggest "issue" with the book... that being that it was written in 1991, which was a bit jarring in all the talk about "current events" in the Middle East. Had I realized what "current" meant before I started reading, things would have gone a lot more smoothly.
One thing I really appreciated about this book was that I never really felt that Dr. Morris was telling me that he had it all figured out and this is exactly the way it is. The tone was more of a friendly (yet serious) chat where Dr. Morris is laying out his studied and educated guess as to how various prophecies are being fulfilled (or are going to be fulfilled), along with carefully explaining why he believes that.
On many of the issues (like who is the Antichrist) he talks about what the church has believed over the centuries, without belittling those beliefs. In fact, when speaking of Nero being thought to be the Antichrist, his parenthetical statement is "naturally enough." I don't know, it just felt like he respected the early church, even though their interpretation of that particular prophecy has clearly been demonstrated to have been erroneous.
Respectful. And open to the idea that later on, biblical scholars could be pointing out where he missed the mark. That sums up the overall tone of this work.
I'm glad I've had the opportunity to read this book.

Randy A BrownTNAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Shows how the end-time is connected to CreationJuly 4, 2011Randy A BrownTNAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Creation and the Second Coming is unique among both Creation and Prophecy genre's in that it shows how the two are intertwined. Morris shows from Scripture that in order to understand the end-times you must understand the beginning.
Morris covers topics such as evolution, Darwinism, slavery, apostasy, occultism, and even science and technology, and shows how they correspond to the end-time events.
Morris also steps through the end-time events such as Gog and Magog, Israel becoming a nation, Babylon, the seven-year tribulation, Daniel's 70th week, the two witnesses, the image of the beast, the woman in the wilderness, the anti-christ, the millennium, the final judgment, and more, and shows how this war of Satan's began at the beginning.
This is primarily a book on prophecy, but instead of only focusing on the end-times Morris shows events in history, such as the trouble in the Middle East, and how they all tie together with end-time events. Morris shows how the signs that are given in Scripture of the second coming directly stem from humanism. Morris even explains why we can't know the time of the rapture.
This book is a fascinating look into end-time events. I was especially interested in the points about science. This book is much needed because it not only covers the Ã¢â¬Ëhow' of the end-time, but also covers the Ã¢â¬Ëwhy'. Without the Ã¢â¬Ëwhy', the purpose of the tribulation and second coming loses its impact. I highly recommend Creation and the Second Coming by Henry Morris.

Jey Mosley4 Stars Out Of 5Worth ItMarch 23, 2011Jey MosleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This book didn't deal as much with Creation as I thought it would. He did incorporate a lot of end-time material in the first few chapters which was great reading, but it wasn't what I was looking for. The real prize was the last two chapters; they really hit home, especially the chapter incorporating science, Creation, and the Millennial Reign of Christ. He showed how Creation and the Millennial Reign resemble each other in simple yet grand fashion. Overall, I would recommend this book.
