This edition of The Great Controversy Between Christ and Satan – Ellen White’s history of Christianity:
Throughout her detailed and lengthy treatise, White focuses upon the conflict between Jesus Christ and Satan across various periods of Christian history. Beginning with the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD, we advance chronologically through the early Christian persecutions, to the Renaissance-era Reformations of Europe, and to the spread of Christian beliefs around the world and particularly to America. In this text, White presents Christian history and events as signifying the cosmic battle of duality between Jesus Christ and Satan. The various incidents described are, according to White, manifestations of this battle on Earth. Key players such as the Papacy, together with various saints and prophets are also described as playing influential parts in the ongoing battle. We are also told that the future holds further conflict, and that eventually – with faith and belief sustained by adherents – Satan will be driven out for good. It is through this process that the world will become again the exclusive province of God, with the Earthly lives of mankind characterized by greater harmony and peace thereafter. Ellen G. White was one of the foremost early leaders within the Seventh-Day Adventist church. It is her doctrine – inspired by many visions she had, corresponding with her intensive study of many Christian scriptures and texts – which holds prominent place in Adventist theology to this day. Of the twenty-eight fundamentals belonging to this denomination, this book represents the eighth: That Jesus Christ arose literally and bodily from the grave.
