About the Bible

The Henry Morris Study Bible is “an invaluable tool for the defense of the Christian faith” according to Dr. John MacArthur. With over 10,000 study notes, no other resource offers the comprehensive analysis of biblical creation and authority of Scripture as this one presents.

The written Word of God is under attack in our culture like never before. The annotations of this King James Version of the Bible will:

  • explain the Bible’s difficult passages
  • resolve its alleged contradictions
  • point out the evidences of its divine origin
  • confirm its historical accuracy
  • note its remarkable anticipations of modern science
  • remove any doubts about its inerrancy, authority and ability to meet every human need.

This 2,215 page uses a 10 point font and a two column format making it easy to read. Inside you will also find the Words of Christ in red, 22 total appendices, full color maps and a concordance. The hard cover offers an noble and gentle design that both men and women will find attractive. The professional smyth-sewn binding gives this reference tool a life that will span generations.

Dr. Henry Morris is known as the father of modern Creation science, the founder of Institute for Creation Research (ICR) and the author of many well known apologetic books. His thriving legacy continues to equip Christians to be able to defend the accuracy and authority of Scripture today.

My Thoughts

I will admit that I am not too excited about this Bible simply because it is a King James version.   I always have trouble with that specific version of the Bible and I still have not gotten my head around it yet.    I’m sure it is a well made version as I know that numerous Christian throughout the world trust it and only read this version.  But for my this old English way of reading is just too much – English is my second language…

But I will take the time to explain the benefits of this Bible as best as I can.  Dr. Henry Morris himself has undertaken the task of incorporating the annotations found in this Bible.   Every day for a period of 60 years, he has study the Bible and came to the conclusion that it was the very Word of God.   He considered the histories authentic, the science accurate and the wisdom found in it to be of highly importance for living well.     The annotations in this Bible will explain the difficult passages, resolve the contradictions often mentioned by people, point out to evidence to its divine origin, confirm the historical accuracy, demonstrate how the prophecies were fulfilled and hopefully remove any doubts about its inerrancy, its authority and its ability to meet our needs as human being.

The Henry Morris Bible also support the literal Biblical creation account which will help the reader to understand earth history with scientific understanding.    Also, this Bible follow a literal approach to the Bible.   Essentially, this Bible has been put together in the hopes that it will help many Christians to be able to better defend their faith and stand on firm ground when facing adversity in their beliefs.  

I have read some of the annotations found in this Bible and found them historically sound.   I particularly like the fact that you also learn about various ancient practices when you read the notes.   I am not sure that at this point in time I am reading to read a KJV Bible but I am quite  impressed with the quality of the notes written but he “Father of Modern Creationism”.    I am sure this Bible will be very useful for us as we learn to defend our faith as we continue to learn more about God.  This Bible is quite thick and contains red lettering for highlighting the words of Jesus Christ.
