Brand New Desmond Doss Movie, and other updates

New Desmond Doss Theatrical Movie
A new Desmond Doss Feature Film is in the works! And no, we're not talking about the 2004 documentary, "The Contentious Objector." Adventist filmmaker Terry Benedict (writer and director for "The Contentious Objector") will be working with Bristol Bay Productions and Walden Media to create the new movie. Walden Media co-produced "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."

Desmond Doss was an Adventist medic in the US Army during World War II. He saved the lives of more than 75 soldiers by lowering them over a 400 foot cliff in the midst of extremely heavy fire. Despite being ridiculed by his fellow soldiers, Doss refused to carry a gun. He received the United States' highest military award, Congressional Medal of Honor.

New Multilingual Bible Begins Journey Around the World


¹As of December 31, 2006 (www.adventist.org/world_church/facts_and_figures/index.html.en)

What language is your Bible in? Perhaps you have an English or Spanish translation. Maybe you read your Bible in French or Swahili... You may even have a copy of the Bible written in more than one language. The Adventist Church truly is a world church. With over 15 million members in more than 200 countries, you will find over 800 languages being used to spread God's Word.¹

Only "about half of Seventh-day Adventists have a daily Bible study program." This is really something... If we're gonna be telling people that Jesus is coming back, we really need to be studying God's Word! Today the Adventist Church leaders and members from around the world met in Manila, Philippines for the Annual Council, the church's fall business session. During the Sabbath worship service at Araneta Coliseum, a new program was launched to help address this.
