My hero, Dr. Henry Morris, went home to be with the Lord.

I just heard that Dr. Henry Morris died on Saturday. Dr Morris is the major reason I am a Christian today. He was a wonderful man and an excellent teacher. I learned a lot from his books. His teachings will live on in his books.
Here is more information from his ministry’s website:
Dr. Henry Morris is home with the Lord.
Feb 27, 2006
After a series of minor strokes in recent weeks, Dr. Henry Morris, founder and president of ICR was peacefully ushered into the presence of his Creator, Lord, and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday, February 25, around 6:30 p.m.  He was 87 years old.
Henry Morris was considered the “father” of the Modern Creation Movement, authoring well over sixty books on biblical creationism, scientific creationism, and commentaries on the Bible.  His most recent work was the New Defenders Study Bible (released last month) which contains thousands of annotations in support of young-earth creationism.
Dr. Morris was a brilliant scholar and theologian who was used by God in many marvelous ways to launch and encourage the Modern Creation Movement on a global scale.  But for those of us who had the privilege of working with Henry Morris, he was a gentle, humble, and faithful servant of God who modeled what it means to finish well as he consistently looked unto Jesus and ran with patience the race that was set before him (Hebrews 12:1–2).
Plans for a memorial service are being arranged for this Thursday (3/2/06)  at Shadow Mountain Community Church.   Please pray for the Morris family and the entire staff at ICR during this transition.
