A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma. That is the way Sir Winston churchill once styled the Soviet Union. Similarly, the origin, history, and present situation of Seventh-day Adventism in the largest of the world's nations has been little understood outside that country. What's this we hear about the 'official church' and the 'underground church'? Who's in charge? How many members? Alf Lohn has made many visits to Russia during the past few years, first as a private individual and then as an official visitor, a guest of the church. He has crisscrossed the country, spoken in many Adventist churches, and had conferences with government officials. Perhaps no one is so well qualified to write this book as he. At the time of his first visit he was secretary of the Northern European Division of Seventh-day Adventists. Subsequently, he traveled as a general vice president of the General Conference. Now retired, he and his wife make their home in their native Norway.
