Item description for Lest We Forget: Daily Devotionals by George R. Knight...
Overview What is done in the present creates both history and future.1832 One middle-aged farmer began preaching that Jesus was coming soon.1844 One frail teenage girl related the first vision given to her by God.1846 One retired sea captain published a little book on the seventh-day Sabbath.1849 One penniless itinerant preacher created an eight-page pamphlet to bring light to those in darkness.And so it began. Ordinary people who lived extraordinary lives of dedication to God pioneered a little movement that swelled into a worldwide denomination that is now comprised of more than 15 million members.In this unique devotional George R. Knight reintroduces us to our spiritual ancestors. They weren't perfect. They weren't all easy to get along with. But they shared one common goal telling others about the soon-coming Savior.But as in any family, it's all too easy to forget where we've come from; to forget the struggles endured by those who have gone before us; to take for granted the inheritance they left to us. Sometimes we need a gentle reminder of the true value of their legacy. In shaping the future of Adventism, these intrepid pioneers molded not only our history, but our present. And as we reflect upon our past, perhaps we should also contemplate the future to which we are each contributors.Watch part of an interview with George Knight from Hope Channel's Between the Lines series:

Well Read May 24, 2010
This is a must read for every Seventh day Adventist. For Seventh day Adventist to truly get an understanding of who we are where we came from and how to get where we are going, this is a must read, especially for historians.
Lest We Forget Mar 11, 2010
For anyone with any interest or curiosity at all about the development of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, this book is awesome! It certainly illustrates how God guides patiently and wisely in the life of any Christian, taking him one step at a time, and no faster or slower than the person can go. This is the way God deals with a developing church and it's the way He deals with the individual Christian.
Inspiring Nov 22, 2009
This is a wonderful devotional book that chronicles the history of God's leading in the Seventh-day-Adventist church. It is both historical and spiritual. I've just started to read it, but skimming through it I love what I see.
