Some think the Reverend Henry C. Heffren was a great doctrinal preacher-author; He did write more than 40 books and pamphlets, lead a correspondence school, and serve as a mission pastor and executive, as well as radio preacher in Manitoba. Others think he was not too great a bible scholar. I happen to be one who held him in high esteem and I know he was highly esteemed by the Church of God in both Western Canada and Stateside.
Dr. Heffren, as he was honored by Gulfcoast Bible College, was a pioneer pastor of the Church of God in Western Canada. He got involved in radio and operated a faith radio ministry that also became a publishing-teaching ministry that was global in time. I was introduced to his ministry when I was a rookie pastor in West Texas; he lectured in Houston on the Kingdom of God and the church, and I was hooked from then on.
The numerous writings of H.C. Heffren will soon available in a 4-volume compiling o his more than 40 publications. That project is nearing completion at Reformation Publishers. I believe many pastors and lay people will find it not only helpful but quite useful.
I post this from Reformation Publishers so that any readers will know I have not left the scene; I have just been toooooo busy. Thus, I take this occasion to let some of you know I will resume my regular ramblings again, but for now I will use this to alert some of you to the coming Heffren series from RP. They "should" be available for the first time at the coming May Pastor's Fellowship in Winchester, KY.
This is an off the cuff announcement while I am doing a late-night printing job at RP. Watch for Dr. Heffren's compiled volumes and I'll give more details when they become available. In the meantime,
