On offer is a superb archive of 15 original early 20th Century manuscript notebooks signed by "Albion F. Ballenger" who along with his brother Edward were rebel preachers and theologians in the Seventh-day Adventist church. [Bio notes detailing their problems with the Church follow the description.] The 15 manuscripts, each about 38 pages, are written in Spanish and the title page reads; "La Proclama de Libertad y el Pecado Imperdsnable (?) Pov Albion F. Ballenger" being the original handwritten manuscripts of Albion F. Ballenger titled: "The Proclamation of Liberty and the Unpardonable Sin" which was published in 1915. Researchers and historians of the Seventh-day Adventist church will find a treasure trove of unpublished information in Albion's handwritten manuscript books as each has his original writings, corrections, printed clippings pasted to the pages, etc. adding an unparalleled depth to this very broad discourse. BIO NOTES: Research finds that Albion Fox Ballenger (1861-1921) and Edward Ballenger (1864-1955) his brother [whose diary #0001987 we list separately] were raised as 7th Day Adventists and later became preachers. Albion started the "Receive Ye the Holy Ghost" movement which helped inspire the Holy Flesh movement in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and later was dismissed from the church. However after a trip to England on missionary work Albion started teaching a "new theology" and because of this and him turning away from the 7th Adventist Church he became somewhat of an enemy of the 7th Adventist movement. That's when he began writing books on the subject (one being the original manuscript in the other archive listed) and was even involved in a trial because of it. Online sources find "On Trial for Heresy, The A. F. Ballenger Story" which is a very detailed history on both of the brothers; Edward and Albion. Another site provides: "Albion and Edward Ballenger were leading critics of the Seventh-day Adventist Church beginning in the early days of the 20th Century and carrying forward to the death of Edward. In Edward's latter years, Donald Mote began helping him in his work. After Edward's death, Mote continued the work until the early 1990's. The trio were primarily against the sanctuary view commonly held by most Seventh-day Adventists. They also opposed the authority and position of Ellen G. White. Besides tracts and small publications their main voice was "The Gathering Call" magazine."
