What Evangelistic Preaching Is Expected to Do

THE HEARTTHROB, the very life, the center, the core of real evangelistic preaching, is found in Dob bins' statement that "Christ is the center and circumference of disciple winning.

There is the kind we ordinarily think of, those questions associated with skepticism and doubt. But there also has to be room for the questions that must be asked if faith is to grow.

How the "Mustard Seed" Grew

EIGHTY YEARS have passed since the messenger of the Lord laid the foundation of our health food work in the year 1895. It was at a public address, in a powerful message, on the first Sunday afternoon of the Victorian camp meeting that Ellen White called the attention of God's people to the necessity for reform and to the great need of warning the world of the intemperance that would prevail to an alarming extent. . .

Entropy (Part 2)

AS DISCUSSED in last month's article, entropy is qualitatively equated to probability.

THE ESTABLISHMENT of Avondale College was a significant development in the rapidly expanding work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia in the final decade of the past century.

Wonderful Beginnings

On January 3, 1875, before a distinguished congregation of Adventists in the United States, Ellen White was given a vision that proved in later years to be of tremendous interest to our people in Australia. It was the vision of the lights. In this she beheld an ever-enlarging work of evangelism depicted by jets of light shining like stars in the darkness, ever increasing until the whole world was illumined with their glory. . .
