Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Messenger of the Lord is the definitive work on how the is the most comprehensive treatment ever produced of Ellen White's prophetic ministry. It prophetic gift functioned in her life and ministry.

Did Ellen White fulfill the Biblical tests and qualifications of a prophet?

How did her roles as wife, mother, neighbor, soul winner, an dpublic personality affect her prophetic function?

What is the relationship between her writings and the Bible?

How should we listen to her writings today? Are they still relevant?

What was the impact of her ministry on the development of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and its doctrines?

How valid are recent criticisms of her and her writings?

Can this Victorian woman speak in a meaningful way to today's computer-chip, transistorized global village?

"I can name an American woman author [whose] writings have been translated into 148 languages. More than Marx or Tolstoy, more than Agatha Christie, more than William Shakespeare. Only now is the world coming to appreciate her recommended prescription for optimum spiritual and physical health. Ellen White. You don't know her? Get to know her!" ?Paul Harvey, on a coast-to-coast broadcast, Sept. 25, 1997.

Herbert Douglass and his team are to be commended and congratulated on completing this massive project. Well done Professor Douglass! This is an incredible piece of work. God bless you and everyone connected with this monumental effort! I just love this book!
In all fairness to those readers who are not members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, or who are unfamiliar with the history and teachings of the Church, it would be helpful to know that the publisher (Pacific Press Publishing Association in Nampa, Idaho) is one of two large publishing organizations of the Church in the United States. (The other being the Reveiw and Herald Publishing Association in Columbia, Maryland.) Also, the general editor of this fine work, Kenneth H. Wood, (to whom the book is dedicated) has been Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Ellen G. White Estate, Inc. and President of its Corporation since 1980, and has served in the past as Editor of the Adventist Review, the general paper of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
For those interested in reading a critical work on the life and times of Ellen White written by a reputable historian not officially connected with the Church and its many institutions, I would suggest as a starting point Dr. Ronald L. Numbers' book entitled, Prophetess of Health: Ellen G. White and the Origins of Seventh-day Adventist Health Reform. (I am very fortunate to have in my personal library a signed copy of the library edition of this work! Dr. Numbers was very gracious in signing my copy in February, 2001 at an Association of Adventist Forums meeting in Loma Linda, California where he spoke about Ellen White.)
I wish to end with a note of caution to those readers looking for more information on Ellen G. White.

This is a classic portrayal of a courageous life lived in great anticipation of the One she loved and taught me to love. I would widely recommend its reading. There are insights into her life--delicate and detailed--which have deepened my appreciation of this lady. The book spans most of her life, showing how the Lord truly called her to be His messenger. Those who attack her inadvertently are against the One who, she taught, would rather die than live without them. Read her classic "Steps to Christ" or "Desire of Ages" and see what passion inspiration drives you to. Thank you Herbert Douglass for this wonderful contribution.

I first heard about this book through listening to some of Mark Howard's presentations on Ellen White and the Spirit of prophecy (which are very good, by the way - you can check them out at audioverse.org). He mentioned Herbert Douglass' book as being a great resource on the subject and I can see why. Throughout the work, Douglass is very thorough, first laying the Biblical foundation for the proper understanding of the prophetic gift, and then proceeding step by step to cover the life, ministry, and teachings of Ellen White. Included is a very helpful section explaining the proper hermeneutical principles for understanding inspired writings (whether the Scriptures or the Spirit of prophecy), as well as another section near the end that deals with some of the more prominent criticisms of White and her work. At nearly 600 pages in length, this educational gem, indeed, deserves the title of being, to date, the definitive work on Ellen White's prophetic ministry.

A really good read. A woman of divine inspiration shares her experiences in a commanding yet heart touching and truly moving manner. The author did an excellent job in sharing the life story of this practical yet amazing woman of God, wife and mother.
