During her 70 years of prophetic ministry Ellen White was given numerous divinely inspired messages for individuals and for the Seventh-day Adventist Church. These messages of instruction, reproof, and encouragement nurtured and guided the church during the darly decades, and were designed to help lead God's people until the day of ultimate triumph.
The present compilation opens with a definition of the church, followed by a call for unity. Succeeding topics include inspiration, the Incarnation, standards, healthful living, education, last-day events, and Ellen White's use of literary assistants. These and other subjects in the volume draw the reader closer to Christ and provide guidance on practical Christian living.
