Sabbath Watchman 1919-2019

In the period from 2001 to 2010, The Sabbath Watchman was published occasionally by the General Conference and consistently by individual Unions, especially the German Union and the Netherlands Field.

Although the German Sabbat-Wächter had been published by the German Union with support from the General Conference, the 1990s saw the push for the General Conference to assume responsibility for the official organ of the church as an international body.

In the 1970s, particularly in the American Union, there was a push to expand the publishing work. It was at this time that the Reformation Study Course was produced and sent to Adventist workers all around the world. The Sabbath Watchman was even produced monthly part of the time.

The Sabbath Watchman in the 1940s reflected conditions in the church during World War II and its aftermath. There were actual, everyday examples of the Reform Movement’s correctness in its stand with regard to military service and government relations. Prayer for those who were caught in the strife between nations was earnest and ongoing.

The decade of the 1930s reveals the story of the development of the work in the United States. The Sabbath Watchman also contains reports of developments of the work in other parts of the world, especially in Europe and in Germany. Some issues are missing pages.

The Sabbath Watchman in English was first published in the United States in 1925. Unfortunately, some actual archive copies are missing from the physical folders. Those available reveal some of the early history, especially those issues that are translations of articles from the German Sabbat-Wächter. The German edition, with the name Wächter der Wahrheit,was first published in 1919 and continued for six years until the movement was more fully organized, consolidated its resources, and established its first official Principles of Faith and Church By-Laws in 1925.”
