View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In this meticulously researched volume, Calvin W. Edwards and Gary Land collaborate to provide the first in-depth scholarly examination of a revealing, if nearly forgotten, episode in Adventist history. Acting in part as a biography of the public figure of A. F. Ballenger, Seeker After Light also necessarily presents a portion of the history of the Seventh-day Adventist Church within the context of the larger story of religion in the United States.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1905, Albion Fox Ballenger, a popular Seventh-day Adventist preacher, was released from employment for advocating views in conflict with Adventist teaching about Christ’s ministry in the heavenly sanctuary. Three quarters of a century later, another popular Adventist preacher again questioned the church’s sanctuary doctrine, with similar results. In some important ways, the Ballenger case may be seen as a foreshadowing historical footnote to a doctrinal controversy that shook Adventism in the early 1980s.

About the Author:

Calvin W. Edwards has provided executive management to several ministries and private companies. His scholarly interest in Ballenger began when he was a student at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University in the early 1980s.

Gary Land, editor of Adventism in America and author of other works in Adventist history, is professor of history at Andrews University.
