SOUTH LANCASTER, Mass. (PRWEB) February 24, 2021
Dr. Ernan Norman, a minister of the gospel with the Seventh-day Adventist Church for more than thirty-eight years and actively involved in pastoring the churches, evangelism, disciplining, and nurturing those under his care, has completed his new book “God’s Magnificent Eight: 8 Essential Non-negotiable Pillars of the Faith Centered in Christ”: a gripping and potent exploration of fundamental Seventh-day Adventist principles and the fight to maintain them.
“As a Seventh-day Adventist minister and fellow member of the Seventh-day Adventist biblical community, I know that we are not immune from the ever-growing skepticism concerning the certainty of the pillars of the Christian faith. This ever-growing skepticism is happening and has been happening for some time, among evangelical Christians at an alarming rate. Liberal theologians, liberal schools of theology, seminaries, and Bible schools, established for the training of clergy are denying a literal six days of creation, the virgin birth, the reality of the resurrection, to name but a few,” writes author Dr. Ernan Norman. “Many spiritual thought leaders are teaching things that undermine the historical evangelical understanding of the inspiration of the Scripture and the fall of man into sin. While in general, we, as a Bible-believing, Seventh-day Adventism community of faith, have not succumbed to these liberal theological positions, we do have, and have had in our relatively short history, some supposedly learned minds and a steady growing number of grassroots believers that question and challenge the foundational pillars of our faith. They have called into question, for example, the ‘spirit of prophecy’ in the life and work of Elen G. White, our position on the 2,300 days, the year 1844, the heavenly sanctuary, and the investigative judgment, and more recently, the Holy Spirit as a member of the godhead. We are not immune.”
Published by Page Publishing, Dr. Ernan Norman’s insightful book is a fascinating look at the eight major tenets of Seventh-day Adventism, as intensively studied by Dr. Norman throughout his career as a minister. The seven traditional pillars of the religion are previously laid out by Mark Finley in his writings. Dr. Norman, in this book, adds the church itself as an eighth pillar. Taken together, the eight pillars are completely fundamental and essential for a complete and total understanding of the Seventh-day Adventist religion. These pillars are rooted in Christ and define Seventh-day Adventists as members of a biblical community of faith.
Tragically, however, great uncertainty concerning the pillars abound. These non-negotiable aspects of the religion are under direct assault, which will intensify into a mighty sifting siege over time. Dr. Norman’s book seeks to correct and inspire confidence in the traditional understanding of Seventh-day Adventism, creates a resolve to add guidance to the pillars.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “God’s Magnificent Eight: 8 Essential Non-negotiable Pillars of the Faith Centered in Christ” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
