Eugene, Oregon—December 22, 2011— Harvest House Publishers was honored to receive the John F. Walvoord Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pre-Trib Research Center (PTRC) at the 20th Annual Pre-Trib Study Group Conference. The award was presented to Bob Hawkins Jr., president of Harvest House, on December 5th in Dallas, Texas.
The John F. Walvoord Lifetime Achievement Award was established by the Center as a tribute to recognize Walvoord’s legacy of faithfulness to God by engaging in the publishing of His prophetic word. Walvoord was a longtime president of Dallas Theological Seminary, and one of the most prominent evangelical scholars of his generation. He is considered perhaps the world’s foremost interpreter of biblical prophecy.
Traditionally presented to a scholar or teacher, this marks the first time the award has been given to a publisher. After receiving the award, Hawkins remarked, “We are truly humbled by this honor and very grateful for the ongoing ministry of the Pre-Trib Research Center. Both Harvest House and the Research Center share a sincere heart for the significance of the pretribulational interpretation of Bible prophecy and publishing resources that bring forth genuine hope and purity as we live out our Christian faith.”
The PTRC was founded by Dr. Tim LaHaye to encourage the research, teaching, propagation, and defense of the pretribulational rapture and related Bible prophecy doctrines. The Center seeks to impact pastors and individual Christians with the important place that Bible prophecy should have in the life of the church.
