Publisher's Description

In three years, 1931-1933, Henrietta Mears grew Hollywood Presbyterian Church’s Sunday School from 450 to 4,500 children, youth and adults. Dr. Mears not only knew the Bible, as generations of readers of What the Bible Is All About can attest, she also knew the supreme importance of Sunday School for forming the next generation in Christ. In this never-before-published book, Dr. Mears shows church leaders why Sunday School is the greatest investment their church can make to reach the next generation for Christ, and offers practical tools for organizing and training leaders for effective Sunday School outreach. Why is Sunday School big business? Because it is God’s business.
 

Author Bio

HENRIETTA C. MEARS was one of the great Bible teachers of the 20th century. While Christian Education Director at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she built one of the largest Sunday Schools in the world and wrote curriculum that was in such high demand that to publish it, she founded Gospel Light in 1933. Such notable Christian leaders as Richard C. Halverson, Luis Evans, Jr. and Bill Bright were among her students. Billy Graham said of Dr. Mears, "Her enthusiasm for the Lord Jesus Christ was contagious."Miss Mears went home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 20, 1963.

Editorial Reviews

One of my favorite quotes comes from Henrietta Mears: "There is no magic in small plans.  When I consider my ministry, I think of the world.  Anything less than that would not be worthy of Christ nor of His will for my life."
 
Somewhere in the midst of the conversation, confusion, and debate, the value of Sunday School has been lost. Do you realize that a person in a Sunday School class is five times more likely to be assimilated and discipled in a church than a person who attends worship only? Did you know that Sunday School increases biblical literacy and encourages personal Bible study? Are you aware that churches with the healthiest Sunday School organizations are likely the healthiest churches evangelistically?
 
The evidence of the efficacy of Sunday School is clear if not overwhelming. Yet for many church leaders, it’s not edgy or cool. And it therefore is devalued and minimized.
 
Henrietta Mears will bring back our passion for Sunday School.  Though she has been with the Lord for a half a century, her words are fresh and powerful.  Read this book and be inspired.  Read this book and be educated.  Read this book and be challenged.  Read this book, implement the principles, and see how Sunday School can truly change the world.
