The Seventh-day Adventist Bible Students’ Source Book is the successor to the Source Book for Bible Students published in 1919 and revised in 1922. Like its predecessor, this Source Book includes only material by authors who are not Seventh-day Adventists. The object of the collection is to provide background information and documentation from primary and secondary sources on various subjects relating to the Bible and Biblical topics. Users can find topics in the alphabetical headings running through the body of the work or in the general index. At the beginning of each extract is found information as to where the material was obtained: author, title, edition, and inclusive paging of the portion presented.
The encyclopedia was first published in the 1960s, revised in 1976, and revised again in 1996 when the material expanded so much that it was divided into two volumes. The articles can be divided into six main categories: Church History, Church Organization and Operation, Institutions, Biographies, Beliefs and Practicesm, and Miscellaneous Topics. Definitions are required to explain various names or phrases of organizations, methods, and activities–such as church school, Ingathering, Bible studies, pathfinder Clubs, and Medical Cadet Corps.
