Revising The Great Controversy

Changes to the 1911 edition of The Great Controversy and how they were approved

In 1907 the badly worn electrotype plates of the 1888 edition of The Great Controversy had to be patched. A few years later it was clear that the plates could no longer be used. Ellen White decided this would be a good time to make minor revisions in the text.

The steps in this revision are explained in detail in three documents: 1) a July 25, 1911, letter written by W. C. White to the members of the Publication Committee, 2) a statement read by W. C. White to the General Conference Council on October 30, 1911, and 3) a statement by Ellen White approving the completed revisions.
