Welcome to the Association of Adventist Forum’s Spectrum magazine archives. This archives is hosted by the Andrews University Center for Adventist Research.

As long as you click on “Back to Results” you will remain in the results list from your search of Spectrum. Please note that if you step outside of this initial search you will be in the full library catalog and no longer focused on Spectrum. Also note, the search performed here is a full text search of only the index record, not of the whole Spectrum magazine. Once you find an indexed article in most instances you may click to access the full issue or the article. Once you are in a PDF of the issue/article, you may use the search features of Adobe Acrobat to search for a word or phrase.
