This volume traces Ellen Whites activities through her developing Christian experience, the Advent movement and disappointment of 1844, and how she became the recipient of visions. It deals with her place with her husband and Joseph Bates in laying the foundations of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and discloses the vital role the visions had in this development.
This volume, as well as those which follow, help Ellen White become better known as an individual–a wife and mother, a neighbor and friend–as well as the messenger of the Lord, laboring tirelessly in the pulpit and on the public platform in declaring God’s message and in counseling often and writing incessantly, with influence felt the world around.
