This minimalist booklet provides the student of biblical Hebrew with a panoramic view of the morphological forms of the language. The focus is on the panoramic reception of tables rather than any detailed explanation of morphological features or functions of verbal tenses and prepositions. Its convenient and concise format is ideal for supplementing textbooks in the preparation for quizzes and exams. Using this booklet will greatly facilitate the learning process for anyone eager to dive into the original Hebrew of the biblical text. Rehearsing the paradigms on a regular basis will make the reading of the Hebrew Bible easier, and the task of exegesis can be carried out more efficiently.

God’s salvation of humanity, as presented in the Scriptures, will always be the highest, most sublime, and more rewarding of all theological subjects. It is a truth that is both startlingly simple and profoundly complex—as simple as knowing that “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so,” and so complex that the Apostle Paul described this intricate cosmic drama as “the mystery of godliness” (1 Tim. 3:16, NKJV).
Throughout Christian history, many debates have raged about this greatest of all topics, often resulting in schisms, anathemas, and bloodshed. And the debate continues among Christians today.
In this landmark volume, organized by the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, nineteen scholars collectively present the most comprehensive treatment of this topic to be published in the Adventist world.
Salvation strongly affirms Adventism’s Protestant soteriological roots, further refined by the work of the seventeenth-century Reformer Jacob Arminius. Built on the Protestant principles of sola gratia et fides and soli Deo gloria, this book is organized according to the five tenets of Arminianism: Conditional Election, Unlimited Atonement, Total Depravity, Resistible Grace, and Christian Assurance/Sanctification. The first part of the book addresses the Cosmic Controversy, God’s foreknowledge, and predestination. The second part wrestles with the problem of sin and human nature. The third part presents a biblical understanding of the work of Christ. The fourth part explores the teaching of God’s grace, including His prevenient or initiating grace. The fifth and final part illumines our assurance of salvation. This is a book for our time on the great theme that will be our study for all eternity.

William G. Johnsson
William G. Johnsson draws from his many years of firsthand experience teaching about Jesus in a university setting to provide educators with this invaluable teaching resource. In it he seeks to impart eternal lessons from the gospel account of Jesus’ earthly ministry. This textbook contains a wealth of historical information from both scripture and nonbiblical ancient literature that will help students fully appreciate the impact of Jesus in human history.
The book is the first in a series of specialized textbooks in Adventist biblical studies and theology developed by the Biblical Research Institute and published by Andrews University Press for use in undergraduate and graduate programs in Adventist colleges and universities.
William G. Johnsson (PhD Vanderbilt University) has served as professor of New Testament at two Seventh-day Adventist universities, editor and executive publisher of Adventist Review for twenty-four years, and a member of the Ellen G. White Estate Board of Trustees. A widely noted speaker and writer, he has authored nearly thirty books and more than 1,000 articles, and has specialized in interfaith relations.
Calvin B. Rock
Calvin Rock has produced a landmark book on race relations and leadership in the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America. As an acclaimed leader himself, Rock writes with a pastor’s heart and a prophet’s passion to remind the church of where we have been, where we are, and where we must go. He first gives an overview of history by discussing the successes and failures of four major Black Adventist leadership protest movements: the push for administrative integration, which failed; the push for Regional conferences, which succeeded; the push for Black union conferences, which failed; and the push for a separate and equitable retirement system for Regional conference employees, which succeeded. Rock’s personal participation in some of the events adds rich character to the story. Building on that history, he makes his case for the effectiveness and necessity of the current Regional conference system of mission that administers resources according to racial and cultural opportunity.
Calvin B. Rock has been a major leadership voice in the Seventh-day Adventist Church for more than six decades as a pastor, church administrator, and writer. He was president of Oakwood University from 1971 to 1985, and a general vice president of the General Conference from 1985 until his retirement in 2002. He has been an active participant in North American Adventism’s continuing discussions of race relations. He holds a BA degree in theology from Oakwood University, an MA in sociology from the University of Detroit, and DMin and PhD degrees in religious ethics from Vanderbilt University. He is the author or editor of ten books. In retirement in Las Vegas, Nevada, he returned to active pastoring and has a heart for helping the church better understand the full meaning of the Righteousness of Christ.
“This is one of the most important books that I have read in a long while. Written with unswerving honesty, it traces the struggles of African-American Seventh-day Adventists for justice and equality. I found much to admire and applaud, but much that made me sad. Highly recommended, indispensable for administrators and Seminary students.”

The second volume in the Inspirational Classics series, this book features the enduring Christian literary classic Steps to Christ by Ellen G. White, which has been translated into approximately 160 languages since its first publication in 1892. It is the most widely read work of its author, whose prolific literary productions are recognized as significant contributions to Christian literature of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
The publication of this landmark 125th anniversary annotated edition of Steps to Christ was specifically designed to coincide with the 500th anniversary of one of the most important events in the history of Western civilization. In the autumn of 1517, Martin Luther first disseminated the Ninety-Five Theses—an ardent remonstration against the abuses and errors of the church of his time.
This special edition includes a historical and theological introduction giving a brief history of the book. Each chapter has a brief introduction, which includes a list of recommended further reading and a description of the antecedents of that chapter. Each chapter also has annotations to clarify or expand some of the thoughts expressed in the chapter. A helpful appendix cross-references Ellen White’s other writings.
This edition’s outstanding book design includes comfortable, hand-sized dimensions; cloth cover binding; classic, highly readable type design; and elegant foil stamping and gilded edging.
Ellen Gould White (1827–1915) is the most translated woman writer in history, and the most translated American author of either gender. She was the author of forty books and more than five thousand periodical articles. Through numerous compilations based on her manuscripts and articles, more than one hundred book titles are available from her writings. In 2015, Smithsonian Magazine, the main publication of the Smithsonian Institution, named Ellen G. White among its “100 Most Influential Americans of All Time.”
Denis Fortin is professor of historical theology and a former dean of the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University. He is an expert in Ellen White studies, having written and taught extensively in that area.
Earthly Shadows, Heavenly Realities: Temple/Sanctuary Cosmology in Ancient Near Eastern, Biblical, and Early Jewish Literature
Kim Papaioannou and Ioannis Giantzaklidis
“In antiquity a religion without a temple was unheard of. Christianity had no earthly temple, yet had a strong temple theology. Christianity chose to interpret the very basis of its theology with a process that it opted to abandon!”
So whatever happened to the temple? In this unique collection of essays, the writers direct our attention to where the early Christians looked—to the reality of the sanctuary in heaven. An obvious and often overlooked theme endemic to both testaments, it has profound ramifications for faithful Christian theology today.
Kim Papaioannou holds a PhD in theology from Durham University, England, with an emphasis in the New Testament. He has written extensively on issues of biblical theology and practice, including the monograph The Geography of Hell in the Teaching of Jesus. Ioannis Giantzaklidis is a ThD candidate at the University of Helsinki. His dissertation is entitled “The Fate of the Nations in the Book of Revelation.”
“The earthly sanctuary of the Israelites, together with its services, is quite clearly described in the Bible. We also know quite a bit about Solomon’s temple and its services. Our information on the heavenly sanctuary, however, is rather sparse. This book provides not only the biblical description of the heavenly sanctuary but also a description of the important functions of that sanctuary. The topic has been considered from several different angles. Its authors have brought the heavenly realities to our earthly eyes.”
Nancy Vyhmeister Professor Emerita of Mission Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary Andrews University
En el mundo actual, ninguna parte de la Biblia inspira tanto interés, especulación, sensacionalismo y confusión como el libro del Apocalipsis.
Esto parece extraño para un libro que pretende ser una revelación de Jesucristo.
Pero no tiene que ser de ese modo. En esta concisa introducción para los lectores, el expero en el Apocalipsis, Dr. Ranko Stefanovic lo hace que todo sea claro y sencillo.
De una manera directa y razonable, el autor nos conduce, capítulo tras capítulo, sección tras sección, escena tras escena, a través de ese sorprendente panorama de guerra y gloria cósmicas. Y a través de todo, vemos el cuadro asombroso de Creador que supera todo con justicia y amor cuando Jesucristo es revelado claramente como Rey de Reyes, y Señor de Señores.
Ranko Stefanovic es profesor de Nuevo Testamento en el Seminario Teológico Adventista del Séptimo Día en la Universidad Andrews. Antes de su carrera académica, sirvió por dieciocho años como ministro ordenado Adventista del Séptimo Día en la antigua Yugoslavia. Es el autor dela revelación de Jesucristo: Comentqario sobre el libro del Apocalipsis, un comentario muy popular que es un libro de texto en muchos colegios y universidades adventistas. Su enseñanza del Apocalipsis se destaca en una extensa y larga serie en la red de televisión 3ABN. Es invitado para dar conferencias y sermones en seminarios teológicos, asambleas de ministros, reuniones de reavivamiento e iglesias alrededor del mundo.
“Aunque todos los libros de la Biblia fueron inspirados por Dios, ningún otro libro de las Sagradas Escrituras presenta a Jesucristo como su autor, ni muestra el futuro como lo hace el Apocalipsis. En esta versión abreviada de su Comentario del libro del Apocalipsis, el Dr. Stefanovic transmite con fluidez y claridad los conceptos principales de su obra original. Este libro debiera ser leído por todos aquellos que vivimos en la undécima hora de la historia de nuestro planeta”.
