■ ADVENTIST HERITAGE SERMONS RE-ENACTED — “The Collected Works of Pioneer Preachers” is a collection of six sermons that were delivered by Adventist pioneers in the late 1800s. See re-enactments of J. N. Andrews, William Prescott, Roswell Cottrell, Uriah Smith, and James and Ellen White, dressed in period costume and delivering these historically significant sermons. The 3-DVD series includes bonus presentations by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and Ella Eaton Kellogg, highlighting the beginnings of the Adventist Health Message. The “pioneers” were filmed in historic Adventist Village in Battle Creek and at the former Battle Creek Sanitarium. Learn the historical significance of the sermons from the booklet included with this timeless Volume 18 of Adventist Preaching.
