God's Wake-Up Call
Ervin H. Hershberger
Vision Publishers Llc
My bags are packed, I am ready to go. These were the words of Ervin N. Hershberger when he was asked how he was. He was a man of prayer and a man of the Book. This book reflects his life. He saw this work as his last testament on Earth. Upon hearing of his death, the publisher wondered where the manuscript was. His daughter looked for it but could not find it. The day following his funeral it showed up at the publisher's mailbox with Hershberger's final corrections. God's Wake-Up Call represents a summary of Hershberger's lifetime of study in the book of Hebrews. The applications to the contemporary scene are pertinent and much needed in the church today. The book reveals the author's deep concern that people understand the need to follow God fully. In ten penetrating chapters, the author warns, instructs, and admonishes the reader in the most holy faith. He who earnestly reads is wise.
Ervin N. Hershberger was an energetic and diligent student of Scripture. In his lifetime, he wrote many articles for publication. He was the founding editor of Calvary Messenger and served in that capacity for many years. He also taught at Calvary Bible School in Arkansas in many of his active years. His teaching specialty was the Old Testament and the study of the Tabernacle. He was active as deacon in his church until his age and health caused him to lay the work down. Hershberger had a love for people, especially young people. He remained active in faithful Christian service until his death.
