Topics include hermeneutics, Old Testament and Testament precedents, and insights from the Spirit of Prophecy and church history. The first chapter is available as a free download on the ABC website.

The book is available from your local Adventist Book Center or online at www.tinyurl.com/WObook . It is also available in Spanish.

Dr. Hanna is a professor at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. Dr. Tutsch served as an associate director of the Ellen G. White Estate at the General Conference.
