Friesen-Hossack’s book sounds like she has Seventh Day Adventists all wrong


Your August 17 issue (of the Southwest Booster), reviewed a book by Darcie Friesen-Hossack which although  fiction, contain religious elements supposedly reminiscent of her own experiences. 

She characterizes Seventh Day Adventists as having a religion of communes.

If this is true anywhere which I doubt, I don’t think it’s common. The church and denomination to which my Adventist relatives belong, reflects the style of most other Christian churches.

These people are some of the kindest, most socially-conscious  as well as spiritual Christians I know. 

I think I’ll find something else to read.
