Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering the Millerite movement of the 1830s and 1840s, sabbatarian Adventism prior to organization of the denomination, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church since its organization in 1861-63, this volume provides a comprehensive history of the denomination. The first major element of the book is a chronology of Adventist history that begins with William Miller's conclusion in 1818 that the Second Advent of Jesus would occur about 1843 and extends through the Science and Theology Conferences of 2002-04. The interpretive introduction that follows places the emergence of Adventism within the context of the Second Great Awakening, describes the development of sabbatarian Adventism from its early opposition to church organization to its highly institutionalized and bureaucratically structured contemporary form, and examines the denomination's geographical expansion from a small North American sect to a global church. The dictionary entries that constitute the bulk of the volume address individuals, organizations, institutions, and doctrines that have been important in the history of the church, including dissident movements and individuals who have emerged as critics of the denomination and its beliefs. Second, there are entries on the development and current situation of Adventism in many individual countries. Finally, thematic entries on such subjects as art, music, literature, health care, and women address other elements important to understanding church life. The dictionary entries are followed by a bibliography of scholarly and popular works published by the denomination, commercial and academic presses, and individuals and organizations.

Book News Annotation:

Land, who teaches history at a Seventh-Day Adventist school listed in the dictionary (Andrews U., Berrien Springs, Michigan), has compiled a work based in part on the Seventh-Day Adventist Encyclopedia. A chronology of the church's history since 1818 and introduction to SDA's American origins, beliefs, and growth as a world religion prefaces entries from "academy" (SDA secondary schools) to "Zimbabwe" (noted to have 678 SDA churches). The extensive bibliography includes general works; primary source material; general and country-specific histories of the church; auto/ biographies; literature on beliefs, practice and polity; libraries and archival repositories; Adventist responses to critics; and Web sites. Originally published under the title Historical dictionary of Seventh-Day Adventists. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
