Ellen Gould White
(November 26, 1827 – July 16, 1915)
"In brief, she was a woman of remarkable spiritual gifts who lived most of
her life during the nineteenth century (1827-1915), yet through her writings
she is still making a revolutionary impact on millions of people around the
world. During her lifetime she wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles and
40 books; but today, including compilations from her 50,000 pages of
manuscript, more than 100 titles are available in English. She is the most
translated woman writer in the entire history of literature, and the most
translated American author of either gender. Her writings cover a broad
range of subjects, including religion, education, social relationships,
evangelism, prophecy, publishing, nutrition, and management. Her
life-changing masterpiece on successful Christian living, Steps to Christ,
has been published in more than 140 languages..."
Quoted from: Ellen G. White: A Brief
Biography, Ellen G. White Estate
“Women have been honored on American postage stamps for more than 100 years;
starting with one woman who was not an American, Queen Isabella in 1893.
Since then, 86 women have been honored ranging from Martha Washington to
Marilyn Monroe; also many women authors like Louisa May Alcott, Emily
Dickinson, Willie Cather and Rachael Carson.
But I can name an American woman author who has never been honored thus,
though her writings have been translated into 148 languages. More than Marx
or Tolstoy, more than Agatha Christie, more than William Shakespeare. Only
now is the world coming to appreciate her recommended prescription for
optimum spiritual and physical health: Ellen White.
Ellen White! You don’t know her? Get to know her!”
