One Thing I Know is a collection of short essays, originally written editorials that address aspects of spiritual life from the perspective of a Seventh-day Adventist. James Coffin brings order out of the chaos of changing ideas theology, and Adventist mores. His lucid, commonsense approach to Christian living will set the windmills of your mind awhirl. How he asks, can we avoid becoming inoculated against Christianity? What about formal dress in a changing culture? Music? Loyalty to the 27 fundamentals? Essay titles include "Silence the Trumpets, " "Bringing Up Junior, " "Concerning Camels, " "Effective Dissent, " "Myth of the Open Mind, " "Goat Tales, " and "Does Suicide Preclude Salvation?" And don't miss the award-winning "By Their Loot Ye Shall Know Them."
