Early edition of one of the most important books by religious pioneer and co-founder of the Seventh Day Adventist church, Ellen G. White. Mrs. White claimed to have received many visions and dreams from God, many of which were witnessed by others. Her fellow Adventist pioneers took these as proof of the Biblical gift of prophecy, described in the book of Revelation as the testimony of Jesus. This book and others in her Conflict of the Ages series aim to trace the hand of God in Biblical and in church history.
