This book is a very good starting point for a person who seeks defend the Christian answers to the three fundamantal questions of life: Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going?
As with any book of human origins there are some things that I did not agree with - such as the Author's explanation of chapter 6 Nephilim. But it does give overall good scientific explanations of all the book plus practical commentary applications. Furthermore the author usually points out that the explanations given are his opinion and encourages the reader to study and decide for themselves.

Highly Recommended! Henry Morris has done an excellent job
of researching and explaining the scripture in Genesis.
Many questions as to the meanings of Genesis are answered.
Those topics which are open for different possible interpretations (there are a few)
are noted as such but also, logical possibilities are offered
and explained. Recomended to Anyone studying the bible, especially those
interested in Genesis, the book of beginnings.

This is a very conservative commentary, holding to the traditional Christian faith and more. If you are looking for an adequate defense of the historical truth of Genesis, and an analysis of the leading interpretations of each passage, this is an excellent guide. It is primarily 'technical', in that it fully explains what Genesis says and means, but only about 10% of the text is devoted to life applications for today.

An extremely well-written book being, as the cover says, both a scientific and devotional commentary on the 'Book of Beginnings. Whether the reader is a believer in six literal days of creation or believes in God but "evolution is the way He did it" the book is a useful tool, exploring every aspect of the narrative thoroughly. The latter often believe it doesn't really matter if the Genesis record is taken literally or not but this book will make you really consider that position afresh.
You don't have to accept all that the author says, of course, and the material is presented in such a way that you can turn to any of the 22 itemised chapters to study and contemplate any particular area you are studying.
Having read the reviews before purchasing I was a bit skeptical but the book proves to be an extremely good buy.

This is an excellent commentary on the origins of all peoples. It was first written in 1973 and amongst the treasures Mr Morris deals with some aspects of technology and science that were in use for various reasons at that time and busts the myths of there use. Again it is an excellent work full of truth and detail and I would recommend this to anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding (with the help of the Lord Jesus) of the book Genesis.
