Great Controversy

by Ellen G. White

Summary

In 1858, Ellen G. White felt moved to give her testimony of faith at a funeral she and her husband attended. While giving her testimony, a vision of Christ, Satan, and the apocalypse came over her, and she wrote down everything she could remember when she returned home. She published the documentation of her vision later that same year. The Great Controversy describes what she saw as the ongoing battle between Jesus and Satan throughout the ages, then prophesies about how that battle will end. White's book is considered a foundational text of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, although it has gathered considerable popularity among those of different affiliations.
