The issue of Adventist identity is crucial for an adequate understanding of what it means to be a Seventh-day Adventist today. This, even more so, in an environment that is decidedly skeptical to absolute principles and transcending meaning.

The Pillars of Adventism in the World Today deals with this crucially important question and clarifies the issue of identity for the Seventh-day Adventist church in the 21st century. The message and mission of the church hangs on this issue. The Pillars of Adventism in the World Today identifies the landmark doctrines of the Second Advent, Sanctuary, Sabbath, Gift of Prophecy, and Conditional Immortality of the Soul as identity-markers of Adventism and traces their historical-theological development during the formative years of the church. It then identifies and traces the development of thought patterns in contemporary culture (philosophical, theological, and scientific) that, undermine the landmark doctrines of Seventh-day Adventists at a foundational level. The implications of the different worldviews that are at play in contemporary culture and in Seventh-day Adventist theology are discussed and the relevance and meaningfulness of Seventh-day Adventist thinking and theology, as defined by its pillar doctrines, are clarified, and presented. The Pillars of Adventism in the World Today is recommended to all who are interested to better understand the foundations of Seventh-day Adventist thinking and theology in the context of the challenges of the 21st century.
