Quotes by Carl F.H. Henry


The gospel is only good news if it gets there in time.


The transformation of the bloodstained wooden cross of Calvary to the diamond-studded gold cross of a cathedral may well signify man’s attempt to remove the offense of the cross.


Whoever only speaks of God, but never or seldom to God, easily leases body and soul to idols.  The Christian thus places his whole future in jeopardy by a stunted prayer life.


How can anyone be arrogant when he stands beside the cross?


Numerical bigness has become an infectious epidemic


The early Christians did not say “look what the world is coming to!” but “look what has come into the world!”


The three years of Jesus’ public ministry have stimulated more comment and literature across nineteen centuries than any other comparable segment of human history.

About Henry, Carl F.H.

Carl F. H. Henry (1913-2003) was a Christian theologian and the first Dean of Fuller Theological Seminary in 1947. He was also the founder of the magazine Christianity Today in 1956. His magnum opus is his six-volume God, Revelation, and Authority (completed in 1983), which has perhaps the fullest exposition of the doctrine of biblical inerrancy.
