FOR SOME forty years, an article from the pen of Ellen White appeared in nearly every issue of the weekly magazine The Signs of the Times, with the grand total of some 2000. Several hundred of these articles appeared later, or had appeared previously, in the Review and Herald magazine, the official paper of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. These duplicated articles, as well as some duplicated in a number of popular Ellen G. White books, are not included in this present three-volume collection. The messages in this present collection need no human praise or promotion for their inspired and inspiring thoughts speak for themselves of their divine origin. They cover a broad spectrum of subjects: family life; the raising of children; education; spiritual life; missionary endeavors; church administration, and many others.
