HERE IS THE AMAZING STORY WHICH WAS TOLD TO US A FEW WEEKS AGO:
On the phone, I told a friend about this project and was astounded to learn this:
As you know, in preparation for the 1988 centennial of the 1888 Conference, the General Conference published some materials. But, unknown to our leaders, Pacific Press decided to print an exact reprint of the 1888 edition, with its 39 illustrations. The sale of this book, at about $20.00 a copy, would provide extra income for the Press; and many would purchase it.
But, after the book was printed, and already shipped to many local conferences in America and Canada, word was sent out to not advertise the book or sell it. Instead, all copies were to be recalled and eliminated.
But a minister at the conference office in an obscure province of Canada quietly offered to sell some of the copies for $1.00 a copy in boxful amounts. A friend of the person I was talking to on the phone bought about seven cases and distributed them to non-Adventists; and my friend bought about five cases, and distributed them all.
Why did our leaders not want an original edition to be sold?
The answer is simple enough to those who have read our book, Seventh-day Adventist/ Vatican Ecumenical Involvement.
The ecumenical contacts (by the General Conference, with leaders on the highest levels in the other denominations, begun in 1965 and deepened since 1980) would be badly damaged if a Great Controversy was published which had pictures on pages adjoining the text which talked about the same subject! Too many people would read the book! Too many would be convinced of its truths. Truths which are not fashionable today.
And what is its key truth? That the papacy, working closely with Protestant leaders, are soon going to enact an extremely harsh National Sunday Law.
God sent me the above 1988 information at just the right time, and it spurred me to even more earnest work on this new edition.
When it is printed, here is what we are going to give you:
A book with larger, easier-to-read print than either the original 1888 or 1911 editions (and somewhat more readable than the current ABC edition).
A book with many more pictures than either of the original editions: the 1888 (39 pictures) or 1911 (83 pictures). (I have original copies of both editions here; and nearly all their pictures are included in this new book, plus over a hundred more.) Most of these 217 illustrations fill nearly an entire page. Additional, carefully researched information is beneath all the illustrations, except those which begin each chapter.
A book filled with additional charts containing historical statements and Bible facts, and they are included at the end of the very chapters discussing those subjects.
A book with a far more dramatic, eye-catching cover than any other Great Controversy currently available. A cover that encourages people to open it.
A book THAT HAS THE LOWEST possible price, in small-count boxful quantities, so you can sell and distribute it to multiplied thousands!
That which men have tried to stop, must go to all the world. And why? Because, apart from the Bible, it is the most important book in the world! vf
