Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

A word from Larry Luby my publisher

1 Comment

  Quoting from the preface of Ed Hird’s newest book, RESTORING HEALTH,

“We have all been painfully stuck. Being at a key transition-point in our lives,

we do not know how to move forward, finding ourselves immobilized.”

However, as we all know The Lord works in incredible ways, thus my introduction to Ed. We met while attending a conference in Houston, Texas where the two of us shared a common bond–the Anglican Mission in North America. My Pastor, the right Reverend Philip Jones, was being inducted as the Apostolic Vicar for the ministry and I had agreed to attend in a volunteer capacity. So a Canadian Pastor meets a Texan Publisher. No, I didn’t have my boots on and I left my horse at home, but during our conversation I learned he had written the very successful book, Battle for the Soul of Canada, and was planning a second book. To which I excitedly replied, “I have a publishing company.” The possibility of publishing Ed’s book for distribution in the United States seemed to fulfill a recent prayer request. I had recently felt the Lord’s urging that my main focus as a publisher should be to pastors, evangelists, speakers, and the like. I prayed, “Lord you are going to have to bring them to me, I don’t know how to canvass such a group.”

Upon Ed’s return to Canada we began corresponding over the internet through that wonderful medium called Skype. Don’t you know the internet can be a wonderful communication tool? After getting to know each other, praying together, and Ed gathering all of the facts the decision was made to move forward. The Lord had begun to answer my prayer leading me to publish Ed’s new book, RESTORING HEALTH – Body, Mind & Spirit – Strengthening a New Generation of Healthy Leaders. Since publishing Ed’s book I have begun to work with other pastors and speakers confirming that prayer is a powerful tool. Our Lord is good all the time.

I offer the following about HIS Publishing Company in the event any of Ed’s readers would like to discuss a book project or be in need of a trusted publishing partner.
