Few Christian groups straddle that fine line between sect and denomination as does the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church. On the one hand, its more than 20 million members profess belief in many tenets of Christian orthodoxy, including the Trinity and Christ’s sacrificial atonement on the cross. On the other hand, its murky origins and collection of eccentric doctrines and practices place it on the fringes of Christianity.

In The Great Disappointmentnamed after the failed eighteenth-century prophecies of Christ’s return that sparked the Adventist movement—Tim Staples takes a deep dive into SDA history and theology, giving you a thorough understanding of its key beliefs and how they stack up to Catholic truths.

Although Seventh-day Adventism may be best known for its insistence on a Saturday Sabbath and traditionally strict rules about diet and lifestyle, Staples says we should pay more attention to the seven major errors in its doctrines. In this thorough but characteristically engaging and accessible four-disc set, he takes you through each error (God has a body, Ellen Gould White was a unique prophet of Christ’s return, the human soul is not immortal, etc.) and refutes it with solid scriptural evidence and commonsense philosophy.

The SDA Church has influenced modern Christian culture in ways well beyond its numbers. Listen to The Great Disappointment and be able to respond to that influence—and to the Adventists in your life—with knowledge and skill.

    The Great Disappointment - Understanding the False Doctrines and Failed Prophesies of Seventh Day Adventism

    It is very informative and factually referenced. The complexity and philosophical nature of some the info makes it hard to immediately grasp. For a slower brain like mine, a printed version would be much better.

    The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that I thought is was a video DVD. No wander my DVD player could not play it, but my computer does so I listened to it while resting my old worn out eyes. I love you all!
