Creation and the Second Coming by Henry M. Morris
Creation and the Second Coming by Henry M. Morris is a timely book on biblical prophecy, published by Master Books. Countless books and, documentaries and movies on prophecy have been written, especially within the past few years, in light of new economic, scientific, atmospheric, political and environmental developements. Morris' book, in particular, does not appear very modern in accordance with modern professional printing press techniques- with its stiff, cardboard like pages, and antiquated type- setting/ font. Nevertheless, the text itself is very biblically based with its extensive use of scripture to back up the author's assertions. The author relates the old testament writing as well as new testament writings to modern events which are actually taking place. Political events such as those in the Mid-East, as well as religious/ spritiual trends such as the Islamic and New Age movements are considered as well. Old testament prophecy such as that from the book of Daniel are considered in great detail. If you can get past the bold, black font, and stiff pages, then this book is sure to shed light on biblical prophecy and how modern day events fit in. Perhaps a more modern update and newly designed cover for this book, might make it more appealing and professional to modern day readers. In its current form, it looks like the quality one might expect from a self publishing company or a personal computer. As a blogger for New Leaf Bloggers I recieved a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review. The opinions expressed are my own.
