A look at how the “little flock” grew into a worldwide denomination.
A classic work of Adventist history revised and updated for today’s reader. More than 20 years ago Richard W. Schwarz chronicled the exciting story of how a “little flock” grew into the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist denomination with some 10 million members operating churches, schools, hospitals, publishing houses, and other institutions in the book Light Bearers to the Remnant.
Now Floyd Greenleaf, for many years a professor of history at Southern Adventist University, has revised and updated the book to deal with the developments in the world of Adventism since the earlier edition was published. The result is Light Bearers, a carefully researched, contemporary history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church that shows how continuity despite change, unity in diversity, and singleness of purpose amid an expanding breadth of activity have combined to produce an Adventist world that the pioneers could never have imagined.
