Overview

The completely revised second edition further explores one of the most successful of America’s indigenous religious groups. Despite this, the Adventist church has remained largely invisible. Seeking a Sanctuary casts light on this marginal religion through its socio-historical context and discusses several Adventist figures that shaped the perception of this Christian sect.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The first edition of this book was one of the few must reads for academics interested in the Seventh-day Adventists.... The new edition expands several features of the first: it places more emphasis on regional variations, offshoot groups, and ethnic diversity. Bull (Oxford) and Lockhart (London-based journalist) situate Adventist history in the larger context of American history and, just as importantly, trace the evolution of Adventist doctrine. Recognizing that Adventists form their own subculture, they also provide sociological analysis. This book gives full attention to internal theological conflicts of recent decades. Finally, Seeking a Sanctuary is well written and comprehensive. Any library collecting material on American history or religion should have it.... Essential." —Choice

"A masterpiece. It is by far the best book on Adventism that has ever appeared." —Ronald L. Numbers

Sanctuary' is an ambitious sociological study of the church from its origins in the mid-19th century to its current institutions.
