Logically compelling and eminently readable, The Genesis Record is the first commentary on the complete Book of Genesis written by a creation scientist. Through engaging narrative rather than a critical verse-by-verse analysis, Dr. Henry M. Morris explores the important historical, scientific, and theological information and implications found in the first book of the Bible.

Writing from the conviction that the first eleven chapters of Genesis are as truly historical as the remaining thirty-nine, Dr. Morris helps both the scholar and the layperson develop a fulsome understanding and firm affirmation of a young earth and universe, a real Adam and Eve, a catastrophic worldwide flood, and more. 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 creationist and evolutionists).

Dr. Morris is a capable guide through the important corridors of earth's early history, providing the background so necessary in understanding all of Scripture, and showing how a faithful reading of Genesis affects our Christian life in the twenty-first century.
