Summary

"Beyond Ellen White: SDAism in transition is a comprehensive and scholarly sociohistorical and sociocultural analysis of changes in SDA culture and practice based on a doctoral thesis by Michael Chamberlain. Its focus is the relationship between the teaching and writings of Ellen White, the SDA prophet and the founding and development of the senior Australian SDA college, Avondale College from the late 19th century to the present day. Particular attention is devoted to the social, cultural and curricular changes and controversies across that time, and the apparent concomitant increasing secularisation of the institution. At the same time, the broader canvas of a similar process of change in first-world SDAism is also developed. It is the most extensive study of its kind on this topic and constitutes a significant and controversial addition to the scholarly literature on the rise and development of Seventh-day Adventism."--Provided by publisher.
