The 64-Page Pamphlet

1852

As they were publishing the Extra for the Review they decided to turn to a pamphlet or book as a means of making the visions available in permanent form. To begin with, they could use the same type already set for the Extra, and a little book would be more serviceable than the periodical.

Even though the pamphlet contained only 64 pages, A Sketch of the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, with more than 20 chapters, is considered the first Ellen G. White book. Most of the chapters were made up of her messages to the church, first published in broadsides or articles. The entire work was republished in 1882 and is the first section of Early Writings.
