Do you know who you are? “Of course I know who I am! I am Professor John Smith of Someplace, USA, born to Bob and Patty Smith.” But I’m not talking about your name, your profession, where you live, or who your parents are.
Let me reword the question. Do you know who you are in terms of your religious beliefs and relationship with God? “Of course I know who I am! I am a Seventh-day Adventist.” OK, but what does that mean? Dr. Max Hammonds proposes that it goes beyond simply saying that we obey ALL of the Ten Commandments and that Jesus is coming back to take His followers home to heaven.
Presented in this book is a carefully reasoned and biblically sound exploration of familiar topics that we always thought we understood. With warm personal stories told in the style of a private conversation at a quiet retreat, Dr. Hammonds works through the basic fundamentals of what it means to be a Christian and a Seventh-day Adventist in the real world, living for God during the Time of the End.
This is not just another book about Adventist doctrines. This book gets at the heart of Christianity while focusing on the special calling we have as Adventists.
Available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook.

Is there a better use of time in the times we are in than to read to know who you are? Makes the case from scripture that we have a job to do and what the job is, not to earn salvation, but because we've been saved. God is counting on us to tell the world! Clear, simple, important read.

If you like stories it maybe a fair book. But if you are looking for spiritual reading about what Seventh-day Adventist believe, save your money.
