Introduction Literature is remembered and appreciated according to the extent to which it may be lived or experienced. The Conflict of the Ages series by Ellen G. White deals with a subject that touches the life of every human being. No individual can rightly claim to have escaped contact with the struggle between good and evil, both within himself and between himself and his surroundings. The conflict between good and evil is the theme of the most widely read book in the world, the Bible.
The conflict between good and evil is also the paramount theme of all philosophy. In seeking to analyze the problem of human conduct, the meaning of human life and reality, and the ultimate nature of being, the ancient philosophers came to the conclusion that the end of life is highest good, that the ideal life exercises virtue, especially that of self-control, with the higher functions ruling the lower.
Confucius, Aristotle, Epicurus, Augustine, Seneca, Kant, Lessing, Rabelais, Rousseau, Bacon, Locke, Franklin, Thomas Paine, each in his own way, sought to discover truth and to point out error and to formulate principles whereby mankind might guide himself in the struggle against those attitudes and circumstances that are destructive of what seems to be good and right in human conduct. John Livingston Lowes makes this comment: Poets, too, of all times, have felt the throb of the struggle.
The Vision of Piers Plowman was a vision of right triumphant over wrong. O for a lodge in some vast wilderness, Some boundless contiguity of shade, Where rumor of oppression and deceit, Of unsuccessful or successful war, Might never reach me more!
His Paradise Lost is built around the Bible story of the conflict between good and evil. Professor Percy Long comments that the conflict as portrayed by Milton is not the experience of Adam and Eve alone; it is an epic not of man or a hero, but of the whole race of men.
Paradise Regained is another chapter of the conflict story, picturing the vain attempt of Satan to vanquish Christ by the three temptations in the wilderness. History is witness to the struggle. Religion is based upon the knowledge of it.
Philosophy seeks to explain it. Literature is a reflection of it. Those elements are the preparation of the author for such a task, the adequacy of the purposes which guided her throughout the writing of the books, the development of the plan of which they form a part, and the qualities of style which have contributed to the effectiveness of these works in the accomplishment of her purpose in giving them to the public.
The chapters which follow undertake to show the background and breadth of Ellen G. White Encyclopedia, p. A study is made of the unselfish purposes which guided her in the writing of the books of this series, showing how at great personal sacrifice she dedicated herself to a great and real need which she felt divinely called to meet.
An attempt is made to show the unfolding of the plan which binds together in a unified whole the series of five books dealing with different chronological phases or periods of the great conflict between good and evil. But the major purpose of the present study is the analysis of the style: After reviewing the theories and applications of literary criticism as presented by Philo M.
Buck, Jr. Scott Clark, C. Winchester, Louise Dudley, Jay B. Hubbell, and others, and by analysis according to the theory of rhetoric as outlined in particular by John Franklin Genung, the writer seeks in this study to verify the validity of Mrs. In his final report of the comparison of The Desire of Ages with other works on the life of Christ, Dr.
The reader is not left to imagine anything except what it would have been like to have been in Palestine in the time of Jesus and to have faced the realities she is describing. The reader of the DA is hardly ever conscious of the text itself or impressed with the literary skill of the author. One is caught up with the narrative and its meaning and appeal. Public Ministry and Marriage Traveling, Speaking, and Writing Hardships in Writing Plans and Purposes The Author and Her Style Style and the Reader Clearness of Thought Careful Word Selection Forceful, Effective Sentences Forceful by Contrast The Use of Figures of Speech Other Rhetorical Devices Beauty in Style A Challenge to Admiration She was a twin in a family of eight children for whom the father, Robert Harmon, earned a living by the work of his hands.
There may be something auspicious, however, in the time and place of her birth, November 26, , at Gorham, a village not far from Portland, Maine. New England was at that time the educational and industrial center of the Union. Many literary men of the age lived and wrote in New England. Some of these took a leading part in the reform movements that had their beginning in the early middle of the century. The establishment of democracy had brought with it the idea of other reforms.
Child labor was abolished, temperance societies were formed, and missionaries were sent to foreign lands and to the Indians of America. Public education, coeducation, colleges, schools for the deaf and for the blind, were established. Universal education, universal suffrage, and the influence of daily newspapers helped to accomplish other reformations.
In William Lloyd Garrison started the Liberator, a paper dedicated to abolition, which openly voiced the movement which resulted in the emancipation of the Negro slave. Bacon says: From the year an honest Vermont farmer named William Miller had been urging upon the public, in pamphlets and lectures, his views of the approaching advent of Christ to judgment and the destruction of the world. He had figured it out on the basis of prophecies in Daniel and the Revelation, and the great event was set down for April 23, As the date drew near, the excitement of many became intense.
Great meetings were held, in the open air or in tents, of those who wished to be found waiting for the Lord. Though she says of herself that she was converted at the age of eleven, her earnest Christian experience had really begun much earlier than that. She must have understood what prayer means, for she tells of praying 1 Ellen G. White, Life Sketches, p.
She says of the experience: At the age of nine years, an accident happened to me which was to affect my whole life.
I was stunned by the blow, and fell senseless to the ground. A kind stranger offered to take me home in his carriage, but I, not realizing my weakness, told him that I preferred to walk. Those present were not aware that my injury was so serious, and allowed me to go; but after walking only a few rods, I grew faint and dizzy. My twin sister and my schoolmate carried me home. I have no recollection of anything further for some time after the accident. My mother said that I noticed nothing, but lay in a stupor for three weeks.
No one but herself thought it possible for me to recover, but for some reason she felt that I would live. When I again aroused to consciousness, it seemed to me that I had been asleep. I did not remember the accident, and was ignorant of the cause of my illness. A great cradle had been made for me, and in it I lay for many weeks. I was reduced almost to a skeleton.
At this time I began to pray the Lord to prepare me for death. When Christian friends visited the family, they would ask my mother if she had talked with me about dying. I overheard this, and it roused me. I desired to become a Christian, and prayed earnestly for the forgiveness of my sins. I felt a peace of mind resulting, and loved everyone, feeling desirous that all should have their sins forgiven, and love Jesus as I did. On her way to school one day she picked up a scrap of paper that gave an account of a man in England who was preaching that the earth was soon to be destroyed.
She took the paper home and read it. It made such a deep impression upon her mind that she scarcely slept for several nights, praying continually. Her strength returned very slowly. When she had sufficiently recovered to return to play with her friends she became aware of a difference in their attitude toward her, which she realized was provoked by the presence of an ugly scar left on her face. Her scar became a burden, and the years ahead of her seemed dark and hard. Sympathy and pity made the trial the greater to bear, and she sought consolation in being alone.
Her hardest struggle was to give up her studies. Though she had been a normal, happy, intelligent girl, she now found it a physical impossibility to continue her education. Of her health at this time she says: My health seemed to be hopelessly impaired. For two years I could not breathe through my nose, and was able to attend school but little. My nervous system was prostrated, and my hand trembled so that I made but little progress in writing, and could get no farther than the simple copies in coarse hand.
I had a bad cough, and my whole system seemed debilitated. Ellen was still desiring to be a Christian and wondering how to obtain the forgiveness of her sins when, in , William Miller came to Portland and gave a series of lectures on the second coming of Christ.
Ellen attended these meetings, and with others went forward for prayers. This brought little consolation, for it seemed to her too great a thing for God to forgive her, and that she was not good enough to enter heaven. A sermon she heard there gave her the key to her troubles. Though it seemed too great a thing for her to ask it, she believed that God had blessed her and pardoned her sins.
This belief gave her a different attitude toward life, of which she says: My life appeared to me in a different light. The affliction that had darkened my childhood seemed to have been dealt me in mercy, for my good, to turn my heart away from the world and its unsatisfying pleasures, and incline it toward the enduring attractions of heaven.
I asked for a looking-glass, and as I looked into it, I was shocked at the change in my appearance. Every feature of my face seemed changed. The sight was more than I could bear. The bone of my nose proved to be broken.
The idea of carrying my misfortune through life was insupportable. I could see no pleasure in my life. I did not wish to live, and I dared not die, for I was not prepared. It was a long time before I gained much strength. The result is a penetrating look at the factors that make up true education in its broadest sense.
The reader will find in these pages insights to guide not only parents, students, and teachers, but all who seek true education in the great school of life. This comprehensive handbook on evangelism shows how appropriate strategies and personal preparation of both head and heart empower the Christian to lead people to accept Christ and prepare for His soon return.
Faith and Works. Salvation is by faith alone, but faith is never alone. That is the message of these 18 readings written on the topic of salvation. The gem of the collection is an manuscript, perhaps Ellen White's most definitive statement on justification by faith, written during the theological ferment that followed that Minneapolis General Conference of Justification is wholly of grace and not procured by any works that fallen man can do.
Any works that man can render to God will be far less than nothingness. From Eternity Past. Focusing on the time from creation until the last days of King David, this condensed version of Patriarchs and Prophets delves into the origins of the great controversy between God and Satan, chronicles the battle as it transferred to Earth, and illustrates how God's faithful people have fought the good fight of faith through the ages.

From Israel's greatness under Solomon's reign, to her downfall during the Babylonian captivity, and the subsequent history up to the time of Christ, God always had His faithful few who stood for truth in every circumstance.
From Splendor to Shadow is a condensed version of these fascinating experiences, and details the lives of so many godly men and women who have gone before us. From Trials to Triumph.
