Ronald L. Numbers Memorial Service at Loma Linda University Church


Ronald L. Numbers’s life will be celebrated on September 2 at 4 p.m. (Pacific Time) at Loma Linda University Church. The service will also be livestreamed. https://www.lluc.org

For those wishing to linger after the service, visit among themselves, and offer informal remarks on their relation to Numbers, there will be a light supper at the church.

Numbers, a leading American scholar in the history of religion and science whose 1976 book Prophetess of Health challenged the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s belief in Ellen G. White’s work, died on July 24. He was 81. A great raconteur who uniquely contributed to the upper echelons of both religion and science historiography, he served as a president of both the American Society of Church History and the History of Science Society.
