Volume two of the Ellen G. White biography traces the development of James and Ellen White’s leadership roles in the infant Adventist church. By 1875, their roles were well-defined–James as apostle and organizer; Ellen as messenger of the Lord.
The events covered in this volume include the health reform vision of 1863, organization of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, establishment of Battle Creek College, and the beginnings of a church-sponsored journal, a publishing house, and a medical institution in the West. J. N. Andrews was sent as a missionary, camp meetings were introduced, and Ellen White became a much-sought-after public speaker and a prolific author. James and Ellen became advocates of good health and urged reform.
