Ellen White wrote in the late 1860's to a church member that "eggs should not be placed on your table. They are an injury to your children" (Testimonies, vol. 2, p. 400). Then in 1901 she told another member to "get eggs of healthy fowls. Use these eggs cooked or raw. Drop them uncooked into the best unfermented wine you can find" (Counsels on Diet and Foods, p. 204).
How do you reconcile such seemingly opposite statements from the same inspired author? Which one was inspired? Or were both? How do we interpret them–and everything else that Ellen White wrote?
George R. Knight sets forth in a clear, simple manner the principles that will help every reader to interpret and apply her counsel to his or her life.
In the first section of Reading Ellen White Knight looks at the purpose of her writings, their relationship to the Bible, the role of compilations, and how to read her work systematically. The second and longest section examines fundamental principles of interpretation, and the final section explores how to apply Ellen White’s counsel to both our lives and the lives of others. Reading Ellen White is a companion to his Meeting Ellen White.
