I’m heading out a week from Sunday to go to Walla Walla, Washington; this will be my first trip to the Pacific Northwest. I’ll be taking a week long intensive course on the Development of Seventh-day Adventist Theology from George Knight. I’ve been doing lots of required reading for the class last week and this, including:
- Knight, George R. A User-Friendly Guide to the 1888 Message. Hagerstown, MD: Review and Herald Publishing Association, 1998.
- Knight, George R. Millennial Fever and the End of the World: A Study of Millerite Adventism. Boise, ID: Pacific Press Publishing Association, 1993.
- Knight, George R. A Search for Identity: The Development of Seventh-day Adventist Beliefs. Hagerstown, MD: Review and Herald Publishing Association, 2000.
- Whidden, Woodrow. Ellen White on the Humanity of Christ: A Chronological Study. Hagerstown, MD: Review and Herald Publishing Association, 1997.
I enjoyed meeting George a year ago at the conference at Andrews University on the 50th anniversary of the book, Seventh-day Adventists Answer Questions on Doctrine. He was once pastor in Galveston, and did his doctorate at the University of Houston.
While in Washington I’m looking forward to spending a day with Lynn Nordhagen, who I met on the AOL message boards a dozen years ago. A number of years ago she had me write a chapter for her book, When Only One Converts; and in 2002, she was the one who got me to start blogging. Yet we’ve never met in person.
