This book is a response to a commission by the officers of the Trans-European Division (TED) of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA) to take stock of the TED’s history. The occasion was the TED’s ninetieth anniversary (1929‒2019). The goal was to commemorate it and evaluate how the church’s leaders “tried to shape the development of Adventist mission and ministry” in that period of nearly one century. The hope was, and is, that this will inform and, hope-fully, instruct and inspire present missional politics. The author set out to reach a “modest goal of analysing the higher levels of Adventist Church structure” (p. 12).
