Reviewing Adventist World, NAD Edition

October, 2012
Vol. 8, No. 10

Adventist World is free online. For that reason, I only review or comment on articles that I believe to be of special interest. Online readers can now read the entire print edition. Just click on the cover in the bottom left of the home page, and every page of the entire magazine is yours! Editors, way to go!

I’m confused! A United Nation’s representative reports that CONGOLESE ADVENTIST REFUGEES ARE STREAMING INTO RWANDA, but many are refusing transport on Saturday! What are these members being taught about Sabbath keeping?

Ted N. C. Wilson will contest to the bitter end the right of individual Divisions to ordain women. And he may stake his presidency on his conviction that all the Divisions of the church must agree to ordain women before official church policy can be changed. To that end, Wilson is advancing what he calls “Following the Biblical Way.” WORKING THROUGH OUR DIFFERENCES is an administrative, tour-de-force designed to give him the ability to call the shots as the President of the Executive Committee that meets between General Conference sessions.

Docs Handysides and Landless demystify PARKINSON’S DISEASE.

Unfortunately, THE POWERFUL BREATH, Frank M. Hasel’s riff on Fundamental Doctrine #5, is cliché riddled, poorly written, and more confusing than enlightening.

FOR PEOPLE BY PEOPLE: A VISION FOR MEDICAL EVANGELISM reported by Chantal and Gerald Kingbeil is a MUST READ for anyone interested an evangelistic project that showcases Adventist community outreach at its very best.

Nathan Gordon Thomas is interested in obscure church history. PART II: MICHAEL BELINA CZECHOWSKI chronicles the European saga of this American born evangelist that preached The Three Angel’s Message in the 1860’s after he lost the official sponsorship of the church.
