He is president of the Master's University and Seminary and can be heard daily on the Grace to You radio broadcast (carried on hundreds of radio stations worldwide). He has authored a number of bestselling books, including Twelve Ordinary Men, and One Perfect Life.

Really helpful book through 6 x 24 hour day creation.

MacArthur really knows his bible and this is well written and easy to read.

Slightly repetitive and with Macarthur he uses many illustrations in most of his books.

I will no doubt re-read this again in a few years.

This book offers a very intelligent account of how our world came into being by creation based on biblical text.
I found it to be far more feasible than the theirs of natural evolution.
A very straightforward and easy read

Unfortunately there are not many men left in Christianity who hold fast to the scriptures as the word of God. John MacArthur is one of them. In this book, The Battle for The Beginning, the author does as excellent job of encouraging believers to hold fast to the Bible, mostly through demonstrating that a literal reading of Genesis 1-3 is the only rational position to hold.

5.0 out of 5 stars An expository of the first three chapters of Genesis 27 Mar. 2014
By SueB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
the theme of his two-hundred some pages is: if you doubt that the Lord can create this entire universe - of which this small speck, called Earth, is the center of the Lord's attention - in a period of six twenty-four hour days, then ripping pages from Scripture won't end with the first chapters of Genesis. We have a choice - either we believe man's changeable science or we believe unchangeable Scripture. In short, old earth creationism bowes the knee to men.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Work. 29 Nov. 2013
By Rob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent response to Hugh Ross. I love this book and have referenced it many times while preaching through the first chapters of Genesis. MacArthur makes it very clear one cannot hold a literal view of Genesis while holding to a non-literal view of the 6 days of creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars dougv 28 Dec. 2012
By douglas van antwerp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An essential book to read. No other book on the meaning of Genesis 1-3 can compare with it.
Excellent comments on evolution vs. creationism.
It's loaded with new insights--rarely seen in a Christian book.
You'll find the book hard to put down. It's that good.
Also the book is very biblical and devotional.
Don't miss reading this book. I loved it.
Caution: Be sure you get the hardback copy. The print in the paperback is too small to read. I first ordered
the paperback and then I ordered the hardback, which has readable print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth 30 May 2014
By j - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Once again MacArthur isn't ashamed to break down the truth of Scripture. He shows exegetically why millions of years philosophy cannot fit into the Bible if one believes in Scripture alone. MacArthur isn't against science, science is interpretation of facts and there's overwhelming evidence for a global flood.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would recommend this book to anyone. 30 April 2016
By Kenneth Eldon Cronk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book to anyone, believers as well as unbelievers. I've already recommended this book with my family and friends, with positive results. John McArthur always does his homework before expressing his thoughts on Scripture. And this book is no exception.
