Felix Lorenz traces the development of the doctrine of Laodiceanism in the Seventh-day Adventist Church through the writings of Ellen G. White and other historical documents. He shows how the church has risen or faltered spiritually according to whether it has accepted or ignored the Laodicean teaching and the concept of righteousness by faith. But even more, he brings the reader to the realization that each one of us must apply the implications of these teachings to his own personal life if the church is to accomplish its divine goal. Pastor H. M. S. Richards calls it "the most hopeful and stirring appeal for the reception and proclamation of the Lord's message to Laodicea that I have ever read or heard."
Lorenz writes from many decades of research and teaching on this subject. He has served as a conference official and as a college and academy teacher.
