Recommended to Jael by: Paul Cole
This book, seriously, one of the most profoundly moving pieces of Christian writing I've ever come across. When I sit and contemplate the battle that is going on for our souls, the simplicity of what God has ever required of His people, and the glorious promise of victory to those who endure to the end, I'm overwhelmed.

Yet there's a definite solemnity about all this, too. In very vivid language, mincing no words, does the author expound on what we can expect if we are of the final generation to

A Must Read Book for Christians

This book is a MUST read for anyone who wants to know the "rest of the story". God has inspired this author just as he has every other bible writer so that we may not be unaware of His plan for us. The content of this book is in perfect unity and harmony with scripture. You will learn things found in the bible that your church has probably never told you. This book is for those who want to discover the truth as it is in Jesus, all the way to the very end.

One of the most inspiring books I've ever read. I definitely hold this book to be like the Bible in that it is from the mouth of God and Ellen White was the instrument in order to reveal His will. A must read for any serious student of Prophecy, regardless of denomination or religion. A masterpiece of literally work, it's no wonder it's banned in certain parts of the world. Satan doesn't want you to read this book!
A sweep across history focused on the conflict between God and Satan. While some of the history is questionable and some of the specific predictions increasingly doubtful I find this to be an encouraging piece of Christian litterature.

“It is Satan's constant effort to misrepresent the character of God, the nature of sin, and the real issues at stake in the great controversy. His sophistry lessens the obligation of the divine law and gives men license to sin. At the same time he causes them to cherish false conceptions of God so that they regard Him with fear and hate rather than with love. The cruelty inherent in his own character is attributed to the Creator; it is embodied in systems of religion and expressed in modes of worship.” 48 likes
“The words of prophecy were fulfilled: “There shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming?’ for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” 609 Many who professed to love the Saviour, declared that they had no opposition to the doctrine of the second advent; they merely objected to the definite time. But God's all-seeing eye read their hearts. They did not wish to hear of Christ's coming to judge the world in righteousness. They had been unfaithful servants, their works would not bear the inspection of the heart-searching God, and they feared to meet their Lord. Like the Jews at the time of Christ's first advent, they were not prepared to welcome Jesus. They not only refused to listen to the plain arguments from the Bible, but ridiculed those who were looking for the Lord. Satan and his angels exulted, and flung the taunt in the face of Christ and holy angels, that His professed people had so little love for Him that they did not desire His appearing.” 1 likes
