The Seventh-day Adventist Church emerged from the revivals which swept the United Stated of america in the 19th century. It was radical in its holistic perspectives and concern for physical as well as spiritual well-being. It has become known in Australia for its health food and hospitals, as well as its education system and churches.
This book describes the origins of the Church in the US and its development in Australia. It outlines the beliefs and practices of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and examines its forms of organisation.
Drawing on the National Church Life Survey and the Census, The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia details the community, its demography and its involvement in the Church. The information is clearly presented, easy to read and is supported by many tables and figures. This book will be of interest to those who are members of the community, providing them with a standard reference on the life of the community. It will also be of interest to all who are interested in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and its role in Australian society.
