While Andrews was not one of the original inner threesome of Adventism’s founders, he was nonetheless the first of Adventism’s notable and enduring pioneers to join that inner circle on a full-time basis.  Within a short time, as his writing and speaking skills matured, the respect in which he came to be held by the community gave him a status as second in leadership only to James White.

This thoroughly researched biography tells the story not only of John Nevins Andrews but also the story of James and Ellen White and of the development of their beloved Adventist Church.  J.N. Andrews was totally committed to “the cause” of Seventh-day Adventism.  It was his life,  and it shape him even as he helped shape it.
