Since The Great Controversy is a book that literally changed my life for good, this abridgment worried me. How could a mere 92 pages do justice to the monumental, 690 page work on the scope of Jesus' church from His time to the end of history? In short, the result turned out to be beautiful. The history of Christianity in this world has been cut, but the story is told of the origin of evil, it's significance and inherent delusions. Chief among these are the diabolical idea of an eternal hell for ...more

An amazing book! Eleven short chapters that tell the epic story of God's endless love for His children and His ultimate victory over the Devil and all evil!! This book satisfies my longing for true happy endings! Praise The Lord for this little book filled with heart changing truth! Amen!

A very fast read,
I feel the author is very good at explaining basic principles in explaining Christianity, but I do not agree about her thoughts on Sabbath day being on Saturday and misuse of Hebrews 3:19 on page 62, that among many in Chapter 8 specifically. I do agree that God did mean for us to have a day of rest though, and oddly enough I am a member of a Seventh Day Adventist church.
Forgiveness is another key area where I feel she ( Ellen White ) did not cover with a wide brush.

This book is an adaptation to "The Great Controversy" (TGC) I've attempted to read TGC many times, it's not that I can't get into it. It's a lot to swallow. So I picked this up to warm myself up to it. It allowed me see the bigger picture and get a clearer understanding. Now I'm at ease to pick up TGC. TGC is a book that I want to read and fully acknowledge, and "The Great Hope" gives it great leverage for that goal.

Interesting take on a somewhat difficult subject.

If you already know the winner, would you still be asking yourself which side to pick? . . .

. . . I don't know about you but I already picked.

Blessing and honor and glory and power be to him who sits on the throne, and to the lamb, forever and ever!

This is an inspiring book by a great author who wrote disputing the last half of the nineteenth century. The editors have shortened it from the original version without removing the power. It is about the life of Jesus and the amazing gift of God to mankind.
