Christian Temperance and Bible Hygiene, 1890

A volume entitled Christian Temperance and Hygiene Was published in 1890. The first portion, Christian Temperance, was written by Ellen G. White and the second, on Bible Hygiene, was compiled from the writings of James White. In the first 162 pages Mrs. White presented basic health principles in more popular and expanded form. Fifteen years later this formed the basis for the book The Ministry of Healing. Also all or parts of nine of the eighteen chapters by Mrs. White in the 1890 book were reprinted in 1923 in Counsels on Health and Fundamentals of Christian Education. The other chapters were closely paralleled in The Ministry of Healing. MM viii.4
