“Repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work.”

Ellen G. White
The Review and Herald, May 25, 1905

J. N. Loughborough

The Great Second Advent Movement

“Elder Loughborough’s book should receive attention. Our leading men should see what can be done for the circulation of this book” (Ellen G. White, Letter 105, 1903).

John N. Andrews

History of the Sabbath

J. N. Andrews’ History of the Sabbath is one of the most able defences of the seventh-day Sabbath established by God Himself as the rest-day at creation week. In this book, you will find convincing evidence to settle this long-drawn controversy between Sabbath and Sunday.

Lessons on Faith

“’Many pray the prayer of the disciples, ‘Lord, increase our faith.’ This is well. Yet along with this, it must never be forgotten that faith comes only by the word of God. Therefore, as certainly as your faith shall be increased, it can be only by there being in you an increase of the word of God. And the only way that there can be in you an increase of the word of God is by your harkening to that word, praying to the Lord for the thing which that word says, depending wholly upon that word for that thing and thanking Him that you have received it. Then and thus that word is received by you and lives in you.”
