Product Details

To understand the end, you must understand the beginning. Dr. Morris shows how Creation is tied to the Second Coming.

The Bible's prophetic writers give key "signs" of the return of Christ. The author shows how each "sign" is an outgrowth of evolutionary humanism or pantheism.

God's plan for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ began in the book of Genesis. The political upheavel in the Middle East, the New-Age movement, and the call for a one-world government were all foretold in God's Word.

About the Author

Morris was born in Dallas in 1918 and grew up in Texas in the 1920s and 1930s. He graduated from Rice University with a bachelor's degree in civil engineering in 1939. He married Mary Louise on January 24, 1940, and they later had five children. After his graduation in 1939, and through 1942, he was a hydraulic engineer working with the International Boundary and Water Commission. He returned to Rice, teaching civil engineering from 1942 until 1946. In 1946 he wrote a short book entitled That You Might Believe, in which he made an effort to attack evolution. From 1946 through 1951, he worked at the University of Minnesota, where he was awarded a master's degree in hydraulics (1948) and a Ph.D. in hydraulic engineering (1950).

In 1951 he became a professor and chair of civil engineering at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He then served as a professor of applied science at Southern Illinois University, 1956—1957, and subsequently as professor of hydraulic engineering and in civil engineering at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Virginia Tech, again serving as the department chair.

In 1961, Morris and John C. Whitcomb wrote The Genesis Flood, which advocated creationism and flood geology. In it he cited an influence by George McCready Price, a Seventh-day Adventist schoolteacher and defender of creationism in the early 20th century. In 1963 Morris and nine others founded the Creation Research Society. Morris resigned from his position at Virginia Tech in 1969. In 1970, he founded the Institute for Creation Research in Santee, California and his son, John D. Morris, took over the presidency of ICR when he retired.

While the greater bulk of his published writings address creation science and evolution themes, he also wrote Many Infallible Proofs, and The Bible Has The Answer, which are both works of general Christian apologetics.

On February 1, 2006, Morris suffered a minor stroke and was hospitalized. Morris was moved from the hospital to a rehabilitation facility near his son's home in Santee, California where he died just a few weeks later.
