Excerpt

the scenes of the long-continued conflict between good and evil have been opened to the writer of these pages. From time to time I have been permitted to behold the working, in different ages, of the great controversy between Christ, the Prince of life, the Author of our salvation, and Satan, the prince of evil, the author of sin, the first transgressor of God's holy law. Satan's enmity against Christ has been manifested against His followers. The same hatred of the principles of God's law, the same policy of deception, by which error is made to appear as truth, by which human laws are substituted for the law of God, and men are led to worship the creature rather than the Creator, may be traced in all the history of the past. Satan's efforts to misrepresent the character of God, to cause men to cherish a false conception of the Creator, and thus to regard Him with fear and hate rather than with love; his endeavors to set aside the divine law, leading the people to think themselves free from its requirements;

Eye opening, to say the least. Of special interest is the history of the reformation. It is amazing to see how protestant churches have discarded their early complaints against the Catholic system.

An anti-Catholic eschatology by the founder and prophetess of the Seventh-day Adventist church. Heavy Victorian-era prose, much of it copied from other writers.

Never before has a book impacted my thinking and understanding of subject: The Great Controversy between Chris and satan, as much as this one. There is so much more to our life here on earth than most of us think. The book is clear and took my thoughts "outside the box". The author has incredible insight in this subject that we as humans all struggle with. Definitely a "Must Read".

Kathleen C. Perrin

It has also allowed her to channel her passion for the place into her young adult historical paranormal series, The Watchmen Saga. In this interview she talks about her muse, how she retraces the footsteps of her characters to better understand them and the hardships of life in 15th-century France.
