GRAIn 2013, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary held a centennial conference to honor and reflect on Henry. See the address by SBTS President R. Albert Mohler, Jr. here.

In recent years, a number of helpful works have appeared on Henry’s life and thought. See Carl Henry, Confessions of a Theologian: An Autobiography (Waco, TX: Word, 1986); Bob Patterson, Carl F. H. Henry (Makers of the Modern Theological Mind; Waco, TX: Word, 1983); Russell D. Moore, The Kingdom of Christ: The New Evangelical Perspective (Wheaton: Crossway, 2004); R. Albert Mohler Jr., “Carl F. H. Henry,” in Baptist Theologians, eds. Timothy George and David S. Dockery (Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 1990), 518–38; Carl F. H. Henry, Gods of This Age or God of the Ages?, ed. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. (Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 1994). The Journal of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary devoted its Winter 2004 edition to evaluating and honoring Henry. Read a 1998 interview Moore conducted with Henry here.

In terms of Henry’s own writing, the cornerstone theological work of his career was the six-volume work God, Revelation, and Authority (Waco, TX: Word, 1976–1983), hereafter GRA. The six volumes in order of publication: Henry, God, Revelation, and Authority, Volume One: God Who Speaks and Shows, Preliminary Considerations (Crossway, 1999 [Word, 1976]); idem, God, Revelation, and Authority, Volume Two: God Who Speaks and Shows—Fifteen Theses, Part One (Crossway, 1999 [Word, 1976]); idem, God, Revelation, and Authority, Volume Three: God Who Speaks and Shows, Fifteen Theses, Part Two (Crossway, 1999 [Word, 1979]); idem, God, Revelation, and Authority, Volume Four: God Who Speaks and Shows, Fifteen Theses, Part Three (Crossway, 1999 [Word, 1979]); idem, God, Revelation, and Authority, Volume Five: God Who Stands and Stays, Part One (Crossway, 1999 [Word, 1982]); idem, God, Revelation, and Authority, Volume Six: God Who Stands and Stays, Part Two (Crossway, 1999 [Word, 1983]). In conjunction with Crossway, SBTS President R. Albert Mohler, Jr. oversaw the reprinting of these volumes and is in large part responsible for reigniting interest in Henry’s corpus.

There are currently two other centers related to Henry: the Carl F. H. Henry Center for Theological Understanding at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and the Carl F. H. Henry Institute for Intellectual Discipleship at Union University.

Capitol Hill Baptist Church of Washington, D. C. has for over a decade sponsored “Henry Forums” on theology and culture in honor of its former member, Sunday School teacher, and mentor to pastor Mark Dever. Listen to an interview Dever conducted with Henry at CHBC in 1997 here.
