Henrietta Mears was one of the 20th century’s most “influential mentors of young Christian leaders in the country!” Along with evangelist Billy Graham; Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ; Dawson Trotman, founder of The Navigators, to name a few!
Her venerable book, “What the Bible is All About,” has been reprinted multiple times since becoming a best seller in 1953.
In her years as director of Christian Education at Hollywood Presbyterian Church, she implemented a Sunday School curriculum, geared from children to adults.
In just two years Sunday School attendance soared from 450 to 4,200 a week!
She formed Gospel Light Publications in 1933, which has translated her Bible study material into dozens of languages.
She said: “. ..the important thing is answering the need. . .”
And quoting from Ecclesiastes 9:10: “Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do it with all thy might.”
