Insight is a weekly magazine aimed at Seventh-day Adventist young people, published by Review and Herald.[1] It has been described as one of the "most important" Adventist magazines.[2]

History and profile[edit]

The predecessor magazine known as The Youth's Instructor was established in 1852 by James White, husband of Ellen G. White.[3] It was distributed primarily through Sabbath school.[4]

Under the editorship of Lora E. Clement in the early-mid 1900s, the circulation increased from about 25,000 to 50,000.[5]

The Youth's Instructor was replaced by Insight in 1970.[4] The headquarters of Insight is in Hagerstown, Maryland.[6]
