Ellen G. White — Messenger to the Remnant


Brochure III — The Ellen G. White Books

Chapter 1—The “Conflict of the Ages Series” *

The revelations given to Ellen G. Harmon (later White) began in December, 1844. Her first written delineations of these visions were in letters addressed to individuals, and a few of these were published by the recipients. During the years 1849 and 1850, seven articles from her pen were published by James White in the Present Truth. EGWMR 55.1

In the summer of 1851, there was printed by the Davidson Printing Company of Saratoga Springs, New York, a 64-page pamphlet entitled, A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White. This, her first book, contained not only articles from her pen that had formerly appeared in print, but also a few chapters presenting other matters which had been revealed to her, but which had not been previously published. EGWMR 55.2

In 1854, a 48-page supplement to Experience and Views was issued, which included several later revelations. These two pamphlets, as reprinted in 1882, constitute the first two sections of Early Writings. EGWMR 55.3
