Prairie Lion: The Life & Times of Ted Byfield

Jonathon Van Maren

For more than a half-century, Ted Byfield was one of Canada's most significant public Christians, and his life's work included the founding of a religious order, the formation of several Christian boarding schools for boys, a series of influential newsmagazines, laying the groundwork for a political movement, writing books, and serving as editor on a magnificent 12-volume history of Christianity, The Christians: Their First Two Thousand Years. He gave voice to Western alienation when few others would, and helped create the consensus that resulted in the first Conservative majority government in decades.

Christian Heritage Press was founded as the answer to a question: What can we do to address the growing need for good literature in our post-Christian society? As mainstream publishers increasingly focus on both nonfiction and fiction by authors hostile to our heritage and values, the need for independent publishers producing new books and republishing classic and time-tested literature has increased.

Christian Heritage Press seeks to address this need by publishing books on a wide range of subjects. In the nonfiction category, we hope to release books dealing with culture, history, biography, and religion from new authors as well as established writers. These books will tell the other side of the story and provide resources to help us understand the current culture as well as how to respond.

In the fiction category, there are many wonderful stories by some of the greatest writers of the past several centuries that have been out of print for decades or are only available from small publishing houses. We hope to bring many of these works back into print in order to make them available for children (and parents!)
