Title: Evangelica  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: List of defunct American magazines, Progressive Adventism, List of Seventh-day Adventist periodicals
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Evangelica was a magazine started in 1980 following the controversial dismissal of Seventh-day Adventist theologian Desmond Ford. It was published until 1987, and had an "Evangelical Adventist" perspective.

It has OCLC 10234046.


Evangelica was established in 1980[1] following Desmond Ford's dismissal from ministerial and teaching positions over his criticisms of the Adventist church's investigative judgment teaching. Ford soon formed his own non-denominational gospel ministry Good News Unlimited.

The "dissident bimonthly" Evangelica based in Napa, California was founded in reaction.[2] Evangelica promoted the cause of evangelical Adventism.[3] One author describes it as "wholly dedicated to the Fordian view on righteousness by faith, and the first issue gave a blow-by-blow description of the sacking of Ford."[4] It was published alternately with Evangelica update (library number OCLC 9883255).[5] Evangelica update was apparently published from 1982 till 1998, and also in 1993.[5] Evangelica ceased publication in 1987.[1]
