One of the most famous documents in the twentieth-century history of the Adventist faith has been republished in a new edition with some recent annotation and documentation. Daniel 8:14, the Day of Atonement and the Investigative Judgment was written by Dr. Desmond Ford, then a visiting professor at Pacific Union College (PUC) in California and long-time chair of the religion department at Avondale College in Australia, in 1980. The year before, a furor resulted from a talk he gave on the topic at an Adventist Forum chapter at PUC. He was brought to the General Conference to do research, and the paper was the central focus of the Glacier View Council, a gathering of the denomination’s Bible scholars and administrators. In November 2018, Adventist Today published an excerpt from one of the introductions to the new edition.
