Loughborough’s ministerial career spannedseven decades and propelled him tens ofthousands of miles around the globe.Although diminutive in stature, he providedenormous and enduring contributions toAdventism.

It was my duty to make known to others, in a public manner, the great truths I had learned.” —J. N. Loughborough.

John Norton Loughborough took his commission seriously. At age 17 he embarked on a ministerial career that would span seven decades and propel him tens of thousands of miles around the globe. Despite a bout with tuberculosis, crushing personal sorrows, impossibly demanding schedules, and recurring ill health, he persevered in the work God asked him to do.

That work included, among many other things, visiting scattered Adventist believers, speaking at camp meetings, writing articles and books, editing periodicals, entering debates, and conducting evangelistic programs. His administrative abilities were greatly utilized by his adopted church, and during his years of service he pioneered tent meetings, selling tracts, Systematic Benevolence, fund raising, big-city gospel efforts, ship ministry, and numerous other innovative ideas.

This intriguing biography reveals a man who did not revel in controversy, yet did not shy away from standing his ground. His close friendship with James and Ellen White did not exclude him from receiving rebuke from Ellen concerning his character flaws. And his diminutive stature did not prevent him from making enormous contributions to the mission and structure of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
