Complete books

The title of the book tells its mission. It points the reader to Jesus Christ as the only one who is able to meet the needs of the soul. It directs the feet of the doubting and halting to the pathway of peace. It leads the seeker after righteousness and wholeness of character, step by step, along the way of christian living, to that experience where he can know the fullness of blessing which is found in the complete surrender of self. It reveals to him the secret of
victory as it unfolds in simplicity the saving grace and the keeping power of the Great Friend of all mankind.

The five following books form a set covering sacred history from the beginning to the end.

Patriarchs and Prophets, the first book of the series, spans world history from creation to the close of David's reign; the Desire of Ages, the third book, treats of the life and ministry of Christ; Prophets and Kings fits between these two. The Acts of the Apostles, the fourth, portrays the history of the early christian church, and the Great Controversy, the last in the series, traces the conflict story to our day and then on in a prophetic vein to the earth made new.

Patriarchs and Prophets  (Audio version)
But who would not wish to look into the secret causes of so strange a defection; to discern its spirit, to mark its consequences, and to learn how to avoid its results? With such themes this volume deals. it tends to foster a living interest in those portions of God's word most often neglected. It clothes with new meaning the promises and prophecies of the sacred record, vindicates the ways of God in dealing with rebellion, and shows forth the wonderful grace of God in devising a way of salvation for sinful man. Thus we are taken down in the history of this work to a time when the plans and purposes of God had been clearly unfolded to the chosen people.

Prophets and Kings  (Audio version)
This volume, Prophets and Kings, opens with the account of Solomon's glorious reign over Israel, a united kingdom, with the temple of Jehovah--the center of true worship. Here are traced the vicissitudes of a favored and chosen people, torn between allegiance to God and serving the gods of the nations about them. And here are seen vividly, through a crucial period of this world's history, the dramatic evidences of the raging conflict between Christ and Satan for the hearts and allegiance of men.

The Desire of Ages  (Audio version)
It is the purpose of this book to set forth Jesus Christ as the one in whom every longing may be satisfied. There is many a "Life of Christ" written, excellent books, large funds of information, elaborate essays on chronology and contemporaneous history, customs, and events, with much of the teaching and many glimpses of the many-sided life of Jesus of Nazareth. Yet it may be truly said, "the half has never been told."

The Acts of the Apostles  (Audio version)
The Book of the Acts was written by "The Beloved Physician," Luke, a gentile convert, for the whole church, jews and gentiles alike. while it covers a period of a little more than three decades, it is filled with important lessons for the church in every age. In the Book of the Acts God clearly indicates that the christian today shall experience the presence of the same Spirit who came with power at Pentecost and fanned the gospel message into a flame. The acts of the Holy Spirit through Peter and Paul, John and James, and others, can be repeated in the modern disciple.

The Great Controversy  (Audio version)
The book opens with the sad closing scenes of Jerusalem's history, the city of God's chosen, after her rejection of the Man of Calvary, who came to save. Thence onward along the great highway of the nations, it points us to the persecutions of God's children in the first centuries; the great apostasy which followed in His church; the world-awakening of the reformation, in which some of the great principles of the controversy are clearly manifest; the awful lesson of the rejection of right principles by France; the revival and exaltation of the scriptures, and their beneficent, life-saving influence; the religious awakening of the last days; the unsealing of the radiant fountain of God's word, with its wonderful revelations of light and knowledge to meet the baleful upspringing of every delusion of darkness.
