CZSS Apr. 20: “Seventh-day Adventism and Social Change in the Peruvian Andes”

This Saturday, April 20, the Choir Zoom Sabbath School meets at 9:30 AM, PST. Yael Mabat will present “Seventh-day Adventism and Social Change in the Peruvian Andes.”

This presentation will feature the unique success story of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Puno, Peru, between 1900 and 1925. Specifically, we will look into the social and political backgrounds that converts and missionaries came from as well as the relationships they forged with each other.

Dr. Mabat is a lecturer at Ben Gurion University, Israel. Her research focuses on modern Christianity in the Americas with a particular interest in transnational religious encounters and how they shaped local social, economic, and political structures. 

Her book, “Sacrifice and Regeneration: Seventh-day Adventism and Religious Transformation in the Andes,” was published in 2022 by Nebraska University Press
