I have the privilege of putting together books that reuse articles from the vast repertoire of Adventist Review and Adventist World. Over a period of years several articles will appear on a related topic and bless thousands of readers online and in the print magazines. Separately, each article was helpful, but drawn together, these related articles can be shared with a new audience in a new format, and the blessing is multiplied many times over.
An example of this beneficial reuse is the recent book 28 Ways to Spell Your Faith, which started out as a series of articles in Adventist World on the 28 fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Each of the articles was written in a timeless way to introduce new believers (and as a review for other church members) to the precious Bible truths we hold dear. With authors from all over the world, the series was well received in the magazines. Why should those articles go into a drawer or the rubbish bin, one by one, over several years? Why not put them together in a book and give them new life to minister in many other ways?
Now that book is at your disposal by simply scanning this QR code:
Adventist World and Adventist Review are committed to inspiring and edifying members of the Adventist Church, and a book collection of articles is an invalu- able way to expand the reach of the ministry.
