The Acts of the Apostles is volume 4 in the "Conflict of the Ages" series. It presents the amazing story of the early Christian church through the rest of New Testament times. After Jesus was victorious over Satan and returned to heaven, the enemy turned his attention to Jesus’ church on earth. Here are thrilling stories of fierce persecutions and unswerving loyalty to God. Peter, Paul, James, John, Luke, Barnabas, Stephen, Mark, and the other early apostles carried the wonderful news of the gospel to all of the then-known world. Unwilling to surrender their faith, many gave their lives.
Christ's Object Lessons, a companion volume to The Desire of Ages, presents the parables of Jesus in a fresh light, showing their application to Christian living today. In the devotional classic, Ellen G. White plumbs the depths of the best-loved teachings of Jesus, offering a deeply spiritual understanding of the parables of Christ as they apply to the life today. She provides practical applications in a way that touches the heart. Christ's Object Lessons was written not by a dry historical scholar or a technical commentator, but by a messenger with personal insight of the love our Redeemer has for humankind.
The Desire of Ages, volume 3 in the five-volume "Conflict of the Ages" series, is Ellen G. White's classic on the life and ministry of Jesus–the One who stands at the center of all human history. No one else has had such a profound influence on Planet Earth as Jesus Christ. In this book the author does not set forth the events of Jesus’ life in strict chronological order, but she presents Him as the One who can satisfy the deepest yearnings of the human heart.
Education deals with the unique and challenging idea that "the work of education and the work of redemption are one." The ultimate goal of all learning should be to understand more about our Creator-Redeemer and to reflect that understanding in our personal lives. This unique perspective has made Education an important and stimulating volume for 100 years.
The Great Controversy, the final volume in the five-volume "Conflict of the Ages" series, picks up the story at the destruction of Jerusalem and follows, in broad outline, the major issues of the conflict between Christ and Satan as they have been seen in the history of the Christian church down to our own day--and beyond, based on what the Bible says will yet take place.
Patriarchs and Prophets is the first volume in the five-volume "Conflict of the Ages" series. It presents the story of the conflict between good and evil--between Christ and Satan--from its beginning, starting with the origin of evil, then taking up the creation of the world, the Bible patriarchs, Israel's Egyptian bondage and Exodus, and their establishment in Canaan up to the time of David.
Prophets and Kings, volume 2 of the five-volume "Confict of the Ages" series, opens with the story of Solomon’s glorious reign over Israel and continues through the remaining kings of Israel and Judah including the times of the prophets, and ends with the nation’s exile and captivity. It traces the history of a favored and chosen people, vacillating between allegiance to God and to the gods of the nations around them. In these pages can vividly be seen dramatic evidences of the raging struggle between God and Satan for the hearts of men and women.
Steps to Christ deals with the central issue of how to become and remain a Christian--the concern at the core of Mrs. White's voluminous writing. In just 13 short chapters, Steps to Christ, will help you discover the steps in finding a forever friend in Jesus. You’ll read about His love for you, repentance, faith and acceptance, growing like Him, the privilege of prayer, what to do with doubt, and how to spend your days rejoicing with your new found friend, --Jesus. Thousands have become acquainted with Jesus through this little book, and it has helped many more, including those who have walked with Him for years, know Him better.
Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing is a rich commentary on the greatest sermon ever preached. It offers a study and commentary on the key verses of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Included are the Beatitudes, the Lord's Prayer, and much of Jesus' other instruction. In particular, how to live here on earth with our fellow man and preparing for citizenship in Jesus' new kingdom in heaven.
