Mission Statement

In my own efforts to secure homiletic resources, I found that this area is usually covered only minimally by most publishers and that those resources which are available are spread over a multitude of publishers. This page is my effort to consolidate as many of those resources as possible into one place.

Please be aware that we offer what other internet sites out there cannot: personal service and a knowledge of the resources which we sell. Who knows better what a preacher of the Word needs to help their ministry than a fellow preacher?? We are here "to serve" and will do everything we can to provide the best service we can at the most reasonable prices possible.

ONE LAST NOTE IN THIS REGARD: What we have found most rewarding in what we do is the chance to talk by phone to you, our customers, with recommendations about what has worked for us and what may work for you in your own ministry. It is even better when we get messages back saying that someone is enjoying the resources which we have recommended. This is truly a win/win situation: we get to put some meager food on our table along with the opportunity to help others in a special way. So please don't hesitate to call or send a message if you have any questions. After all, there really is a Deacon Sil at the other end of the phone or that e-mail! Thanks for your support!

Price Guarantee

We will do our best to give you the best price we can on anything you order from the HRC. If you find a better price out there anywhere, we will match it! And you are also getting something which those other guys don't offer: a first-class web site with resources for all of your preaching needs. So order with confidence. Satisfaction and price are guaranteed!! Thanks ever so much!

Ordering Information

You may place an order by using the catalog itself or by perusing the listings and then calling our toll-free number above. If you don't see something offered for sale which you are interested in obtaining, we will be glad to see what we can do for you. Hopefully, we will be able to meet any competitor's price.


We are constantly adding new products to these pages. We would be very interested in your recommendations for products you would like to see offered on this page and why. So please feel free to speak with us directly on our toll-free number. Thanks again!


Orders totaling over $25 in books (excluding other merchandise and the tax and shipping shown on your order) will qualify for free ground shipping within the US. These shipments will be made via USPS book rate and will normally take from one to two weeks, depending on your location in relation to our store in New Jersey. If faster shipment is desired, the free shipping offer will not apply. We compare rates and delivery times before calculating shipping. (This offer does not apply to other merchandise we sell, including vestments, apparel, software, etc. We do provide free ground shipping gift certificates to repeat customers of these items at our discretion.) In all cases, we will provide you with a tracking number on your order via email.

Please be aware that if any merchandise you order is in stock, it will go out no later than the day after we receive your order. If an item is not in stock, we will advise you of when we anticipate receiving the item and will await your further instructions about whether this is acceptable to meet your needs.

As a family owned business, we try to provide what the big guys cannot: personal service. You can always contact us and speak to a real person (or as real as we ever get!) via our toll-free number at 877-432-6745 (US and Canada) or internationally at 732-714-7796 with any questions. Unfortunately, because of the excessive cost, we have found that we cannot accept collect calls for any reason. However, you may email us from anywhere at We sincerely thank you for your patronage.

As you peruse this sight, just click on any item to find out more about that selection. If prices for any items vary from the price shown on your order (such as differences for e-mail, disk or printed versions of some resources), we will adjust the price accordingly when we receive your order. Any suggestions, just give a holler!
