Literature Evangelism - A Key to Reach the World
The publishing ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is a sacred calling, whether writing, publishing, or circulating the material that have been printed.
Our publishing work was established by the direction of God and under His special supervision. It was designed to accomplish a specific purpose. Seventh-day Adventist have been chosen by God as a peculiar people, separate from the world…. The greatest wealth of truth ever entrusted to mortals, the most solemn and fearful warnings ever sent by God to man, have been committed to them to be given to the world; and in the accomplishment of this work our publishing houses are among the most effective agencies."-Testimonies for the Church, Vol.7, p.138.
Our publishing ministry will always be needed until probation closes.
"If there is one work more important than another, it is that of getting our publications before the people, thus leading them to search the Scripture."- Testimonies for the Church, Vol.4, p.390; (Colporteur Ministry p.7.)
"Many who will not be induced to listen to the truth presented by the living preacher will take up a tract or paper and peruse it." Review and Herald, December 19, 1878; (Colporteur Ministry p.8.)
"More than one thousand will soon be converted in one day, most of whom will trace their conviction to the reading of our publication." Colporteur Ministry, p.151.
