Ultimately, the doctrine of the investigative judgment tells us about God—that He’s reasonable, He’s fair, and He’s on our side in the judgment. It tells us about ourselves, too—who we are and why we’re here. Can you afford not to be able “to exercise the faith which is essential at this time”?

Ellen White called Christ’s ministry in the heavenly sanctuary “the foundation of our faith” (Evangelism, page 221). She said if the people of God don’t understand the investigative judgment, “it will be impossible for them to exercise the faith which is essential at this time.” (Great Controversy, p 488).

But critics of this doctrine say it can’t be supported by Scripture, and they claim that no one who believes it can have the assurance of salvation.

Popular author Marvin Moore has examined the objections of the critics and the best thinking of dedicated Adventist scholars. In this book, he aims to help the readers understand this foundational doctrine and gain its spiritual benefits – based solely on the evidence from Scripture.

I believe this book has immense potential for dispelling doubts and questions about the Adventist doctrine of the investigative judgment. I consider this book the best synthesis of the major biblical arguments in favor of the investigative judgment, and highly recommend it to scholars and laypersons alike, both to those who are Seventh-day Adventists and to those of other Christian traditions who wish to read an evenhanded treatment of this foundational, distinctive doctrine of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. - Richard M. Davidson, PhD, Andrews University Theological Seminary.
