4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Luttrell on September 16, 2003
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best compilations of Ellen White's writings on a specific subject. This book shows that Ellen White (1827-1915) was way ahead of her times in the area of psychology. Even before psychology had become acceptable science, she had experience with the basic fundamentals of psychology and sociology. This book should be required reading for all Christians who work with people, whether you are a parent, teacher, pastor, counselor, social worker or whatever.
Ellen White had amazing insights in the area of personality traits and personality development, the issue of nature and nurture in character formation, mental health, and behavioral modification. While I'm sure she might have reflected some of the current thinking of her times, she still was ahead of her time considering the fact that a lot of the issues she dealt very well with were confirmed by the sciences a century later.
Volume 1 (which is what I've read so far) deals with the study of the mind, how religion helps the mind, emotions, prenatal influence on character formation, parental influence, nature vs. nurture, love, infatuation, sexuality, self-respect, dependence and independence (an important topic), guilt, doubt, marriage, principles of motivation, and principles of education, study and learning.
UPDATE: I previously had doubts about the idea of "prenatal influence on character formation." This was written at the turn of the century, and it certainly did not sound very scientific. BUT, I just attended a panel discussion at Notre Dame between biologists and ethicists, and a study was described that proves that there apparently is a prenatal influence on character formation. Ellen White was way ahead of her time!

Format: Hardcover
This is an execellent book. The author is truly inspired by God. She addresses practically every conflict or controversy that may arise in life. Anywhere from concerns of the roles of a husband and wife in a marriage to how a single person can survive as a Christian or, even how diet effects an individual's mind and spirit. I had searched high and low for this publication. After reading a friend's copy I had to purchase my own personal copy. I think every Christian should have this book as part of their home library.

This book is amazing. So many insights into the mind of humans. It went along perfectly with my psychology class. I would recommend any other books by this author!
