"Ellen G. White, Seventh-day Adventist prophetess, ranks with the Mormon Joseph Smith, the Christian Scientist Mary Baker Eddy, and Charles Taze Russell of the Jehovah's Witnesses as one of four nineteenth-century founders of a major American religious sect. Yet, outside her own church of two and a half million members, she is probably the least known."--from preface to first editionRonald Numbers, raised and educated in the Adventist tradition, is uniquely qualified to offer this study of one of the most charismatic, yet least examined, religious leaders of the mid-nineteenth century. In Prophetess of Health he scrutinizes Ellen White's life (1827-1915) from her teenage visions and testimonies to her extensive advice on health reform, which influenced the direction of the church she founded. The resulting biography is a fascinating exploration of an enigmatic religious leader.This third edition features a new introduction and two key documents that shed further light on White's transcripts of the trial of Elder I. Dammon in 1845 and the proceedings of the secret Bible Conferences in 1919.
