Acerca de


In 1883, a $500 prize was offered for the best essay adapted to counteract "the numerous and powerful influences constantly active in drawing professed Christians into fatal conformity with the world, both in spirit and practice." The theme of the essay was "The Perpetual Obligation of the Lord's Day." The winning essay, entitled The Abiding Sabbath, written by the Rev. George Elliot appeared in 1884 and was issued from the press of the American Tract Society in the winter of 1884-85 in the form of a 280 page book.
Another essay, this time with a $1,000 prize, was awarded to Professor A. E. Waffle of Pennsylvania. The 418 page essay, entitled The Lord's Day; Its Universal and Perpetual Obligation, was approved by the board of the union, and was printed and copyrighted by the union in 1885.
These two authoritative discussions of the question as to why Sunday should be kept as the "true Sabbath" are strongly refuted in this book by Adventist pioneer Alonzo T. Jones.

About the Author:

Alonzo Trevier Jones (1850-1923) heard the Adventist message while serving in the United States Army in the State of Washington. He began at once to study history as it related to prophecy, a theme of much of his writing of articles and books. This study also prepared him for his activity on the subject of religious liberty. He participated in the hearings of the Blair Sunday bill in 1889 and became editor of "The American Sentinel."

Elder Jones was a powerful speaker and one of the strong voices in the revival of 1888 within the Adventist denomination. For a short time he was a Bible teacher at Healdsburg College. From 1897-1901 he was the editor of the "Review and Herald," and he served on the staff of the "Signs of the Times."

"The Empires of the Bible" and "The Great Empires of Prophecy" are companion volumes on history and prophecy. "The Two Republics" deals with Rome and the United States. In addition to these books, Elder Jones wrote books on Christian living and religious liberty.
