What is done in the present creates both history and future. 1832-One middle-aged farmer began preaching that Jesus was coming soon. 1844-One frail teenage girl related the first vision given to her by God. 1846-One retired sea captain published a little book on the seventh-day Sabbath. 1849-One penniless itinerant preacher created an eight-page pamphlet to bring light to those in darkness. And so it began. Ordinary people-who lived extraordinary lives of dedication to God-pioneered a little movement that swelled into a worldwide denomination that is now comprised of more than 15 million members. In this unique devotional George R. Knight reintroduces us to our spiritual ancestors. They weren't perfect. They weren't all easy to get along with. But they shared one common goal-telling others about the soon-coming Savior. But as in any family, it's all too easy to forget where we've come from; to forget the struggles endured by those who have gone before us; to take for granted the inheritance they left to us. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder of the true value of their legacy. In shaping the future of Adventism, these intrepid pioneers molded not only our history, but our present. And as we reflect upon our past, perhaps we should also contemplate the future to which we are each contributors. George R. Knight, Ph.D., is a professor of church history at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary and author of many books, including Angry Saints, Anticipating the Advent, The Pharisee's Guide to Perfect Holiness, From 188 to Apostasy, A User-friendly Guide to the 1888 Message, Millennial Fever, and the four volumes that comprise his Ellen White series, Meeting Ellen White, Reading Ellen White, Ellen White's World, and Walking With Ellen White.
