Not to be confused with H.C. Morrison the founder of Asbury Theological Seminary, Bishop H.C. Morrison (1842-1921) was a pastor and bishop in the Methodist Episcopal Church South. Born in Tennessee, he served as a chaplain in the Confederate Army during the U.S. Civil War with the 8th Kentucky regiment before becoming a circuit rider in Kentucky. He continued his ministry as a pastor in Tennessee before moving to the North Georgia Conference, ultimately serving for four years as the pastor of First Church in Atlanta. In 1890 the General Conference named him one of three Missionary Secretaries for the General Conference and Senior Secretary in 1894, where his efforts at fund raising helped eliminate a large debt that was hindering the mission work of the church. He also served as editor of The Christian Advocate for eight years, finally being elected Bishop in 1898, where he went on to serve in a number of areas before his death. He had two books published through the Pentecostal Publishing Company. One was his autobiography, which also contains a large segment of sermon materials called Gospel Talks, as well as a two-volume set of sermons called The Simple Gospel. It is with great pleasure that we reintroduce these works from a former Bishop of the Methodist tradition to a new generation.
