CREATION, THE FALL, & THE FLOOD WITH THE PROMISE OF CHRIST
They are cornerstones of the Christian faith. They are events that literally changed the world forever. Yet, the foundation of these biblical truths are rooted in Genesis, a book that too many in the Church now treat as an allegory or a metaphor, as anything but the precise and inerrant Word of God.
As these attacks on scriptural authority and relevance escalate, it seems that man's theories supersede Scripture when there is conflict, sowing confusion and undermining faith in the accuracy of biblical history and the Bible itself. In The Big Three, learn:
- How the Scriptures negate the concept of theistic evolution
- Why a living faith and a saving faith exemplify a solid belief in a special creation
- The challenges and confusion in academia regarding scriptural interpretation
Within this remarkable exploration of faith, Dr. Henry Morris III reveals a consistent and powerful thread throughout the Word of God. After Eden, the Gospel message became the overreaching message of the Scripture; after Eden, the Creation became the foundation for the Gospel message; after Eden, the promise contained in Creation became the hope of the Gospel.
Dr. Henry Morris III holds four earned degrees, including a D.Min. from Luther Rice Seminary and the Presidents and Key Executives MBA from Pepperdine University. A former college professor, administrator, business executive, and senior pastor, Dr. Morris is an articulate and passionate speaker frequently invited to address church congregations, college assemblies, and national conferences. The eldest son of ICR's founder, Dr. Morris has served for many years in conference and writing ministry. His love for the Word of God and passion for Christian maturity, coupled with God's gift of teaching, has given Dr. Morris a broad and effective ministry over the years. He has authored numerous articles and books, including The Big Three: Major Events that Changed History Forever, Exploring the Evidence for Creation, 5 Reasons to Believe in Recent Creation, and The Book of Beginnings: A Practical Guide to Understand and Teach Genesis.
Timothy Smith5 Stars Out Of 5September 3, 2010Timothy SmithGreat Book! Well written and shows the reason Bible believing followers of Christ need to accept the first 11 chapters of Genesis based on comparing Scripture with Scripture. Deals with creation from a doctrinal point of view more than evolutions (science theories) VS Creation.An easy read that sets the foundation fore the rest of the Bible!
Stephen Sims5 Stars Out Of 5March 31, 2010Stephen SimsThis book is astounding! It emphasizes the argument that God created the universe and its contents in six twenty-four hour days. Even though I am a scientist and a Christian, I have no trouble believing this. I believe it because that is what the Bible clearly teaches. The book challenges you to think whether we can interpret the Genesis account of creation in ways other than literally without doing damage to the Gospel message. The answer to this is a resounding "No!" The Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about a creation that is drastically different from the original one. Dr. Morris is absolutely correct to argue that death could have never been a part of the original creation. However, any other reading of the Genesis account of creation must accept death as a normal aspect of the original creation. But how could death be a normal aspect of a creation that has been called "very good" by God? I believe that this argument is the thesis of this book, and Dr. Morris does an absolutely superb job expounding on this thesis. This book also argues correctly that if Jesus Christ came to undo the horror of death, then Jesus came to undo something that did not need undoing if Theistic Evolution is the true explanation of existence. I highly recommend this book to Christians who are uncertain about the true explanation behind the existence of the universe and its contents.
