I've been on a bit of a prophecy kick lately, and I also love creation science and teachers who can tie the big picture of the Bible together in an understandable way. This book covered all of those bases, and did it in a very conversational and understandable manner!
Morris is well known in creation science circles as the author of the classic The Genesis Flood, and he has also written a commentary on the book of Revelation. Combine these two areas of personal study and expertise, and it makes Creation and the Second Coming a unique and insightful read.
As the book states, in order to understand the end, we must understand the beginning. With this premise, Morris weaves together an argument for Christ's imminent return based on a vast overview of Biblical prophecy, discusses "current" world events in light of prophecy (this book was published in 1991, so these sections are dated but still insightful), and gives his unique perspective on what Christ's millennial kingdom and New Jerusalem may be like. I read this book in two days, highlighting and marking frequently as I went... and I had many "aha!" and "interesting..." moments along the way!
One of the parts of this book that I most enjoyed was Morris' look, from a Christian scientific perspective, at how the creation was groaning under the curse, and how it very well might be restored to antediluvian (pre-flood) state for the millenial kingdom.Read more ›
Like other doctrinally-sound books on end times prophecy, Dr. Morris explained the specific events that are to happen before the triumphal return of Christ. Unlike the aforementioned types of books, Dr. Morris linked these prophetic truths to the very beginning of creation and explains that God has a plan that was put into motion at the very beginning of time.
I found "Creation and the Second Coming" not only an insanely-interesting read, but an important book to pass on to other Christians. Prophecy makes more sense when understood within the context of God's grand scheme. It's both refreshing and reassuring!
I have to admit that the first half of this book was slightly dry. I struggled through it. Although the content was interesting, it was written with a textbook style that I just could not relate to. The second half, however, changed things for me and grabbed my attention in such a way that I had trouble putting the book down! I don't necessarily think that the writing style changed, but to me the content had me captivated. Dr. Morris laid out the rapture, tribulation, and the 1,000 year reign of Jesus in such a way that quite honestly had my heart pining for that day when He returns!
All in all, this is a great read for anyone wanting to learn more about the prophesies in Revelation and how they relate to the Creation and the last days. I do feel that I should point out that this book was first published in 1991, so some information is slightly outdated.
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 `how' of the end-time, but also covers the `why'. Without the `why', the purpose of the tribulation and second coming loses its impact. I highly recommend Creation and the Second Coming by Henry Morris.
