His father served in its ministry in the United States. Pastor Kramer himself eventually entered the worker force of the Reform Movement and, together with his wife, gave many years of dedicated ministerial service both in the field and later in responsible administrative posts. In these pages pastor Kramer recounts his pilgrimage of faith which eventually led him and his family to leave the church of his childhood and active labors to become a Seventh-day Adventist. In telling his experience he examines in a kind and honest manner the basic doctrines which separate the Reform Movement from the Seventh-day Adventist Church. If, after reading this booklet, you hear the call of the Lord to change the direction you have taken in the past—if even to just say, Lord, I want to study these matters further—Pastor Kramer would like to hear from you.
