Story by V. Michelle Bernard

Summertime is a great time to relax with a good book. We found several books from LivingWell, Potomac Conference’s Adventist Book Center in Silver Spring, Md., and at, as well as podcasts that are perfect for deepening your knowledge of Adventist history this summer.

Adventist Pioneer Places: New York and New England by Merlin D. Burt takes readers north of the Columbia Union Conference to learn about where Adventism began.




God’s Love for You, a beautifully packaged compilation by Ellen White, reminds readers of God’s deep love for them.





We Stand on Their Shoulders: A Historical Legacy of Adventist Pastors by Michael W. Campbell digs into the history of Adventist pastoral ministry and shares the stories of nine Adventist pioneer pastors.




Adventist History Podcast, streamed on, offers various podcast series covering Adventist history as a whole, the academic side of Adventist history, and the life and legacy of Ellen White.


Below are some other summer-worthy reads beyond Adventist history:

The Garden Within, by Anita Phillips

Only Light Can Do That—60 Days of Martin Luther King Jr.—Devotions for Kids, by Martin Luther King Jr., Lisa A. Crayton, and Sharifa Stevens

The Perilous Fight: Overcoming Our Culture's War on the American Family, by Ben Carson
