Synopsis : Covering the Millerite movement of the 1830s and 1840s, sabbatarian Adventism prior to organization of the denomination, and the Seventh-day Adventist Church since its organization in 1861-63, this volume provides a comprehensive history of the denomination. The first major element of the book is a chronology of Adventist history that begins with William Miller's conclusion in 1818 that the Second Advent of Jesus would occur about 1843 and extends through the Science and Theology Conferences of 2002-04. The interpretive introduction that follows places the emergence of Adventism within the context of the Second Great Awakening, describes the development of sabbatarian Adventism from its early opposition to church organization to its highly institutionalized and bureaucratically structured contemporary form, and examines the denomination's geographical expansion from a small North American sect to a global church. The dictionary entries that constitute the bulk of the volume address individuals, organizations, institutions, and doctrines that have been important in the history of the church, including dissident movements and individuals who have emerged as critics of the denomination and its beliefs. Second, there are entries on the development and current situation of Adventism in many individual countries. Finally, thematic entries on such subjects as art, music, literature, health care, and women address other elements important to understanding church life. All entries emphasize historical development but where relevant also describe the contemporary scene. Following the dictionary entries, a bibliographical essay introduces the most important or representative works in both the history of Adventism and the expression of Adventist beliefs and practices. This essay is followed by an extensive categorized bibliography of scholarly and popular works published by the denomination, commercial and academic presses, and individuals and organizations. In addition to books, the bibliography includes listing

Critique: Though not as widely known as some smaller denominations, Seventh-day Adventists have played an important role in American legal and cultural history, not least for their fight for freedom to practice their religion, which involves beliefs (e.g., the Saturday Sabbath) that are unusual among Christians. Adventists' ideas about health are linked to the development of Kellogg cereals. Land is a professor of history at Andres University, an Adventist institution. His status as a believer confers both benefitsfor and limitations on this reference work written for outsiders. This book's level of detail is commendable, and the doctrines particular to the Adventists are clearly described. Land provides good coverage and a clear explication of various Adventist institutions, individuals, country histories, and art forms. Readers looking for information on controversial issues will find few entries, even on doctrinal matters. For most beginning researchers, however, this will be a handy reference tool. No other similar reference work exists other than the much larger, two-volume Seventh Day Adventist Encyclopedia (2nd rev. ed., 1996), which is published by the denomination itself. The bibliographic essay and the accompanying schematic bibliography are excell CHOICE Entries are informative and well written...This work is recommended for all collections. American Reference Books Annual ...useful and concise...The Historical Dictionary of Seventh-day Adventists is a specialist reference resource, and will be relevant to libraries supporting courses or research that includes Seventh-day Adventism. Reference Reviews The amount of material that is densely packed into this four-hundred page book is impressive...anyone interested in Adventism, and especially Adventist history, will find it an indispensable reference work. Seminary Studies, Vol. 44 (Autumn 2006) Land, who teaches history at a Seventh-Day Adventist school listed in the dictionary (Andrews U., Berrien Springs, Michigan), has compiled a work based in part on the Seventh-Day Adventist Encyclopedia. A chronology of the church's history since 1818 and introduction to SDA's American origins, beliefs, and growth as a world religion prefaces entries from "academy" (SDA secondary schools) to "Zimbabwe" (noted to have 678 SDA churches). The extensive bibliography includes general works; primary source material; general and country-specific histories of the church; auto/ biographies; literature on beliefs, practice and polity; libraries and archival repositories; Adventist responses to critics; and Web sites.
