SDA for Me: Doctrinal Essays and Interactions

Format: Digital


In this volume, Martin Weber addresses major challenges to Seventh-day Adventist fundamental beliefs and dialogues with other Christians. Inspired by a public forum at which Adventism was critiqued without the opportunity for discussion, Weber presents SDA beliefs in a grace-based context. He also explains how Adventist doctrine can and should be grounded in Scripture alone.

Weber candidly acknowledges that many of his fellow SDAs suffer from legalism in promoting the Sabbath with a cultish view of Ellen G. White and the pre-Advent judgment. He testifies to his own experience of emerging from suffocating legalism to embrace truth from a biblical, Christ-centered perspective. This book is based on his website
