The writers in this book describe the present experience of awaiting the advent, compare it with the experience of the New Testament and mid-nineteenth century Adventist communities, then suggest what the future purpose and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church might be. The reader is taken from biblical studies to historical research to constructive theology; from reflections on present and past to future expectations of the Second Advent. This volume does not turn the Second Advent into an outline of dates and figures. Rather, it shapes passions, calls to action, and inflames the imagination. This book is for the pilgrim of hope.
