Adventism Confronts Modernity
An Account of the Advent Christian Controversy over the Bible’s Inspiration
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Prepare yourselves for an intellectual feast! In his well-researched, reliable, and winsome account, Mayer provides his readers with a rare glimpse into a fascinating new world: a world that may be filled with lots of unfamiliar faces and even some interesting new places, but that is also populated by lots of surprisingly familiar issues. By allowing his readers to view these old issues through new lenses, he helps us all to see the challenges and possibilities more clearly."
--Garth M. Rosell, Senior Research Professor of Church History, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"This fine book offers a fascinating window into the Protestant battle for the Bible through tracing the Advent Christian Church's theological journey. Mayer's overview of the modernist/fundamentalist controversy and post-WWII Evangelicalism's influence upon the Advent tradition provides a unique window for understanding how views of Scripture's inspiration shape the church. A great introduction to the trajectory of twentieth-century Protestant theological diversity."
