Written for pastors and theologians striving to gain a better understanding of the Adventist movement, this is the first full exegetical and theological study of the remnant as it applies to Adventist ecclesiology.
“The simplest definition of the remnant may be ‘what is left of a community after it undergoes a catastrophe.” (Page 23)
“so Adventists recognize that not all members of the Adventist church are faithful” (Page 40)
“The deliverance of the remnant is an act of divine grace.” (Page 30)
“The Adventist self-designation as God’s remnant people is based on a historicist reading of Revelation, on the characteristics of that remnant recorded in Revelation, and on the mission of that remnant.” (Page 226)
“The church should be ready to express in a clear and persuasive form its identity and mission, its reason for existence” (Page 19)
