The Defender's Study Bible Notes from Dr. Henry Morris -- Now for e-Sword!

NOTE: This is a Commentary resource, with 21 additional appendices under Reference Books.

This acclaimed resource provides a solid defense of the accuracy, integrity, and inspiration of the Bible, a seven-day creation, and Jesus as God's incarnate Son. Now every Bible student can understand and defend the critical issues of their faith. It is full of insights and facts that every believer needs know. Written in a style that is easy to understand and read, it includes great study helps for archaeology, reference, and life application. Dr. Morris's views on the validity of literal Bible interpretation and the infallibility of the Bible are represented eloquently throughout the more than 6000 annotations. He strives to explain difficult passages in a clear and concise manner. He refuses to compromise in order to maintain the authority of true biblical Christianity and doctrine, and applies what the Bible says to modern life.

One of the greatest aspects of this study Bible is its clear views on controversial matters. Where other study Bibles and other commentators will take a neutral stance, Morris clearly presents what he believes to be the truth--what the biblical authors meant. Then he tactfully and thoroughly defends his beliefs while presenting and disproving those of others.

"The Bible does have the answer; its gospel can be defended; and it is hoped that this Defender's Study Bible will prove of significant help in this great cause to those who use it. Its annotations 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, demonstrate its fulfilled prophecies and in general remove any doubts about its inerrancy, its authority and its ability to meet every human need."—Dr. Henry M. Morris


"Dr. Henry Morris, our generations foremost spokesman for biblical creationism, has given students and teachers an invaluable tool for the defense of the Christian faith...matters related to geology, earth history, astronomy, biology, and other sciences. Dr. Morris' clear insight and doctrinal integrity combine to make this one of the most helpful study Bibles available." Dr. John MacArthur, Jr.- Author and President of Master's College and Seminary

"No other study Bible offers a more direct or immediate scientific and doctrinal foundation for biblical creationism and biblical infallibility." Dr. Tim LayHaye - Author, President of Tim LaHaye Ministries

"This now-classic study Bible is very unique, not only due to its strong emphasis on apologetics but also because it highlights the foundational truths of Genesis in the other 65 books. Dr Morris...one of my heroes of the faith, takes an uncompromising stand on the literal six days of creation and a young earth." Ken Ham - President and CEO of Answers in Genesis, The Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.

A great resource (12/18/2023)
Reviewed by (Bobby Hearn, Taunton, MA, United States) - As I have only recently purchased this resource, I have not had much time with it. However, I am a big fan of Dr. Morris as a Christian apologist for creation. As a scientist and one of the founders of the Creation Research Society and the Institute for Creation Research, he is considered by many to be "the father of modern creation science. I consider him to be one of the great sources for how the bible and science are completely complimentary. At our church we will be starting both a bible study and preaching series through the book of Genesis. Both the study and the preaching are expository, and this resource I am confident will be a valuable tool most especially in regard to the creation topic.

Clear Defense (3/11/2023)
Reviewed by (Ralph Key, Town Creek, Alabama, US) - I read Morris and Whitman “The Genesis Flood” many years ago. I found Henry Morris to know what he was talking about. He nailed the best explanations of what actually happened. I like having his comments on my iPhone.

An excellent commentary (6/9/2022)
Reviewed by (Kosta Philologos, Babylon, ON, Canada) -

This commentary is written from a conservative, young-earth perspective, to which I subscribe. The writer takes a literal approach to Bible interpretation, from which many commentaries and churches are moving away. With the literal approach comes a broad perspective, so Morris includes topics from science, archaeology, eschatology and history or customs of the era. The notes are short and concise, making study easy. It is well formatted and conforms well to the e-Sword commentary divisions of book, chapter and verse. I highly recommend this it.

Concerning e-Sword I have much to say, but will try to keep it brief. As far as ease of use, breadth of support, available resources and cost effectiveness, e-Sword is unsurpassed in my opinion. I use it every day for my own personal devotions and study. I also use it for presentations during online Bible study and for quick reference during teaching. I am talking about e-Sword for Mac & iOS.

The e-Sword application has one major flaw on iOS & Mac. I have managed a work-around on Windows, but I hardly use the Windows platform anymore. This flaw is that there is no automatic synchronization between devices. This feature would help me tremendously in my personal study and outreach. To keep notes, tags, comments and highlights current between all Apple devices, one has to use Airdrop, which is not a synchronization technology.

Because of frustration with this, I just went thorough a trial of the most popular Bible study softwares (except for Logos, which is overkill and too expensive) and then came back to e-Sword. On the iPad, e-Sword is the best Bible study software, in my opinion. The Mac version interface lags behind although the same features are there. The iPhone version is good, but a couple of minor features are missing.

With this shortcoming I still recommend e-Sword, although if you plan to use multiple devices, I would recommend to start with Olive Tree before you add too many annotations and reach the point of no exit. Once you add many of your own annotations to one software it becomes too hard to switch.

Packed With Useful Information (2/5/2022)
Reviewed by (Tony Anderson, Midland, TX, United States) - I've been a long time fan of Dr. Henry Morris, ever since his book, 'Scientific Creationism' came out. I just recently installed the e-Sword software and when I saw that the Defender Resource download was available, I knew I must have it. If you're a Biblical Creationist, then this is a must-have addition to your software library. Dr. Morris explains in full detail the flawed logic of evolutionary thinking and using his own scientific background and knowledge, debunks their historical observations and narrative, especially in the context of the 6-day Creation Week and Global Flood of Noah's day where special emphasis is given. Complete with over 20 in-depth articles with many pertaining to the scientific nature of Scripture, it also provides sound biblical commentary on the books and verses of the Bible.

Really Good Study Aid (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (Deborah Holley, Franklin, Tennessee, United States) - I've only used this resource for about a month but already I'm routinely consulting it for occasions when the biblical wording is unclear. The Defender's Study Bible is full of clarifying comments and explanations that enlighten my understanding and helps give me the language to convey ideas to my bible study classes.

Reviewed by (Patricio Kelly, CABA, BUENOS AIRES, Argentina) - This Commentary has SUBSTANCE. I don't agree with everything it says, but I love that it has few words but a lot of [inspired] common sense. That makes it very apt to be used as the first commentary you use.

I believer it will help you understand what the Preacher is preaching about.

It has dated Copyright © 1955, 2004, but is the only one with the perspective of believing God's Word from it's verse as literal! Wonderfully refreshing & insightful commentary, indeed!!

Defender of Literal-normal Interpretation (12/8/2020)
Reviewed by (Thomas Nite, Ringgold, GA, United States) - Dr. Morris, known as the founder of modern Creation Science, has done a masterful job of defending the truth not only of Genesis, but also of all that the Bible says when taken in its most natural and normal way. When he was one of my instructors in Bible College and I learned a tremendous amount from Dr. Morris. He was both a world-renowned hydrologist and also a conservative theologian. His commentary on Genesis is superb and from what I have already seen in the Defender's Study Bible notes, his notes on all of the Bible are extremely well done and consistent with his firm commitment to the truth of God's Word. As a pastor and seminary professor, I highly recommend this book.

Excellent spiritual defence (12/8/2020)
Reviewed by (ARISTOTLE PAPADATOS, Athens, Attiki, Greece) - Very helpful and an excellent spiritual fortress for those who found themselves in serious debate with the counter thinkers having a different opinion. This book provides strong and undoubtful support for the arguments against these counter thinkers. Also, it helps the defender of genuine faith in Christ strengthen his heart and illuminate his spirit before others.

Amazingly Clear and Concise (11/24/2020)
Reviewed by (Ken Russell, Sydney, NSW, Australia) - I am greatly enjoying this commentary and I rank it at the very top of my collection. It is a faithful exposition of God's Word from a seven day creation perspective. It will help in understanding the importance of creation in the overall presentation of the gospel.
