The history of Seventh-day Adventist education From Marthy Byington's church school for five New York families in 1853 to the more than 6,700 elementary - through college-level schools the church operates worlwide today, the history of Adventist education is a story of struggle, tenacity, faith, and blessing. In Passion for the World, by retired professor of history Floyd Greenleaf, gives readers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the growth of an identifiably Adventist system of schools. This book is an inspiring testimony to the power of God and to the vision of true education.
