The Seventh-day Adventist Church was founded upon an apocalyptic message that needed to be preached to the entire worldimmediately and at any cost. But does the church today preach that same message with the same urgency? Has the Adventist Church become irrelevant because it has sought to be more relevant to the world? Knight challenges us to go back to our roots, to examine the prophecies that fueled the early Seventh-day Adventists' determination to evangelize the world.

In this unique devotional George R. Knight reintroduces us to our spiritual ancestors. They werent perfect. They werent all easy to get along with. But they shared one common goaltelling others about the soon-coming Savior.But as in any family, its all too easy to forget where weve come from; to forget the struggles endured by those who have gone before us; to take for granted the inheritance they left to us. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder of the true value of their legacy. In shaping the future of Adventism, these intrepid pioneers molded not only our history, but our present. And as we reflect upon our past, perhaps we should also contemplate the future to which we are each contributors.

Der Autor geht auf Fragen ein, die jeden Adventisten interessieren (sollten): Wie kamen die Adventisten zu den Glaubensüberzeugungen, die sie heute vertreten? Wie haben sich die Lehrauffassungen im Laufe der Jahre verändert? Würden die adventistischen Pioniere alle 27 Glaubenspunkte unterschreiben wollen, die heute von der Gemeinschaft der Siebenten-Tags-Adventisten als verbindlich anerkannt werden? George Knight bezweifelt das. Er legt in wohltuender Offenheit die unterschiedlichen Strömungen innerhalb der Adventgeschichte dar und verdeutlicht, dass Adventgläubige nicht aufhören dürfen, Suchende und Lernende zu sein. So aufwühlend dies klingen mag, so beruhigend wird der Leser feststellen können: An allen untersuchten Beispielen wird erkennbar, wie wunderbar Gott die Adventgemeinde geführt hat. - How did Adventists come to believe what they believe? How have those beliefs changed over the years? With compelling candor George Knight captures the ebb and flow of the doctrinal currents within Adventism, including controversies over the shut door, the law in Galatians at the 1888 General Conference, the Trinity, pantheism, Fundamentalism, the nature of Christ, and inspiration. The Adventist Church was founded by independent thinkers who would have disagreed with several of the church's current 27 fundamental beliefs. But over the years strength arose out of contention, and consensus out of debate. From William Miller to Desmond Ford, Knight catalogues the colorful personalities who shaped the discussion, and shows how God has led Adventism into a broader and deeper understanding of His eternal truth. - A Word to the Reader, A Note From the Author, List of Abbreviations, Chapter 1: The Dynamic Nature of "Present Truth", Present Truth: Fluid Rather Than Static, The Avoidance of Creedal Rigidity, The Pathway of Progressive Understanding, Chapter 2: Adventism Wasn't Born in a Vacuum, The Theological Roots of Adventism, Millennial Visions, Chapter 3: The Millerite Theological Foundation, Miller's Use of the Bible, Miller on the Second Advent, The First and Second Angels' Messages, The Seventh-Month Movement and the Great Disappointment, Chapter 4: What Is Adventist in Adventism?

The Bible s Answers to the Sabbath Question

The Bible points out, firstly, that the Sabbath was God's exclusive sign between Him and the Nation of Israel. No other group, race or nation can make claim on the Sabbath unless they are Israelites or Jews. Secondly, the Sabbath is only a shadow of things to come. An object or a substance has cast that shadow and that Substance is the Person of Jesus Christ who invites one and all when He said, "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you REST." He is the true SABBATH. If we rest on a day, we cannot rest. If we try to concentrate on the law, we will be judged by the law.

"Earliest Seventh-day Adventist Periodicals" reproduces in full the very first doctrinal and apologetic publications of the small group of Sabbatarian Adventists who had emerged out of the Millerite movement. Whether read for information or inspiration, this volume will edify all with its frank and vigorous presentations, and thus demonstrate the inexorable development of early Sabbatarian Adventist thought. Each document is presented as a facsimile reproduction, so the original visual character is well preserved in quaint typestyles, tight leading, and full columns. The scholar's introduction by George R. Knight traces the historical development of the use of pamphlets and periodicals among Sabbatarian Adventists as a precursor to a huge publishing operation within a half a century. It also provides a helpful content analysis of each of the periodicals, highlighting the importance of each to the emerging identity of what soon would become the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
