The Great Hope - Introduction

The  Great  Hope


What does it take to live with hope amid epic-sized natural disasters, wars, terrorism, nuclear proliferation, political revolutions, constant awareness of global pain, and dizzying information overload?
While facing a future with so many unknowns, we need reminding of the old maxim "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." But what will help us remember the past? Some wisdom from Albert Einstein comes to our aid: our great need for "holy curiosity" Such a curiosity will drive us to understand our present and future in the light of our past.

The book you have is a sampling from The Great Controversy, a time tested classic of both history and prophecy -- exploring what God will do in the future in light of His past interaction with humanity. Although written more than a century ago, the insights found in The Great Hope offer cutting edge direction for the twenty-first century. Its author, Ellen G. White, is considered the most widely translated American author, with one of her many books having been translated into more than 160 languages.
