Abstract: This dissertation deals with the gap between education of practice and vision in Seventh-day Adventist education. It describes and analyzes the conflicts between its religious vision and particular cultural and social demands placed upon its education program. The first chapter provides the historical setting for the Seventh-day Adventist church and a look at the elements which gave birth and legitimacy to Adventist education. In particular, the chapter focuses on the necessity for Adventist educators to respond to the existing social cultural context.
