In the ministry of Ellen White generations of Seventh-day Adventists have found a priceless gift. Her words draw us toward the Savior. They focus our attention on the values and beliefs that identify Adventists around the world as a spiritual family, united in faith and mission.
The Connecting With Jesus initiative has tremendous potential to open up this rich spiritual resource to millions of church members, especially new believers. And I pray that, like me, they will be led to see their Lord more clearly."
— Jan Paulsen, General Conference PresidentAs coordinator of the CWJ project in the North American Division (NAD), Alvin Kibble knew the unique challenges of the Western world required a different approach.
The 10 Ellen G. White books included in the Connecting With Jesus initiative are:
1. The Acts of the Apostles
2. Christian Service
3. Counsels for the Church
4. Counsels on Stewardship
5. The Desire of Ages
6. The Great Controversy
7. The Ministry of Healing
8. Patriarchs and Prophets
9. Prophets and Kings
10. Steps to Christ
“They went so fast we could have given out 10 times as many,” Kibble says. “On my desk is a stack of requests for more bands. Our young people are wanting Spirit of Prophecy books—that’s what we were dreaming of!”
