The European Seventh-Day Adventists Mission in the Middle East 1879-1939


Baldur Pfeiffer

The history of the European S.D.A. Mission in the Middle East presents itself as a complete chapter of mission history. It demonstrates the strength and weaknesses of a western mission encountering the complexity of the Middle Eastern people, their religions and cultures. It analyses the theological and sociological changes brought about to the mission itself and to the people it served. The problems presented may be helpful in the search of a modern mission theology.
