While a number of excellent histories of the Seventh-day Adventist church have been written, The General Conference Confronts Aspotasy is unique. No other historical volume has documented in detail the manner in which Church leaders have dealt with apostasy in our midst from its earliest times. Commencing with fanatical worship services, moving to the Messenger and the Marian offshoots, the entry of what is now commonly known as the New Theology with the defection of Pastor Dudley Canright, this book takes up the earth-shattering 1888 General Conference Session, the promotion of Pantheism, the Holy Flesh Movement of Indiana in 1900, hierarchical church governance, the issue of self-supporting work, the military issue of World War I, and the trend-setting 1919 Bible conference. The General Conference Confronts Apostasy examines each one in detail, presenting the impact upon God's Church in the twenty-first century.

The book is highly educative.
It is not easy to review in short a book of about 650 pages, but anyway I think it is very interesting and informative. I have instead one question. On page 429 you can read as follows: "In a few cases Seventh-day Adventist young men were drafted into the army and were assigned to hospital work or other noncombatant service". Could you please tell me the source or provide evidence of this claim? Thank you very much in advance and God bless you for your good work!
The book is factual in its treatment of insperation. It gives adventist a historical background to issues facing the church
