In 13 chapters, Dr. Morris examined Genesis 1-11 to showcase the truths of biblical creationism while simultaneously exposing the hypocrisy of highly regarded scientific theories--specifically the Theory of Evolution. At the end of each chapter, appropriate study questions are posed to the reader which help to solidify the truths of that particular chapter.
Written in an easy-to-understand way, I would suggest "The Beginning of the World" to any young adult or older adult who wishes to learn more about those vital first chapters of Genesis as a way to counter the theories society so readily accepts as truths.
He wrote in the Introduction to this 1977 book, "In this book, both the scientific and historical aspects of these chapters (Genesis 1-11), as well as their evangelistic testimonies and practical spiritual applications, will be discussed at some length."
He argues, "The whole world thus had an 'appearance of age,' even though newly created. Creation of apparent age is inherent in the very concept of creation. No deception is involved, since God has plainly told us these events of creation." (Pg. 25) He counsels, "There is nothing unreasonable at all about the Biblical perspective, which views the earth as the center of interest in the physical universe. The stars in the heavens... were prepared by God with a view to the great history of life and redemption that would soon begin on the earth." (Pg. 26)
Interestingly, he admits, "The quotation in Jude (14-15) seems to have been taken from one of three apocryphal books... At least Jude, by divine inspiration, incorporated this particular fragment as of true Enochian authorship." (Pg. 87)
He suggests, "All human languages are separated by an essentially infinite barrier from the sounds made by animals, although the vocal organs as such may not be greatly different. The origins of language in general and of language in particular, are thus inexplicable in terms of evolution, and yet it is impossible to overestimate the importance of articulate, propositional ... speech in the life of mankind." (Pg. 136)
Morris's many books are of lasting interest to "young earth" creationists.
