Quick Overview

The Seventh-day Adventist Church has become a truly global movement with almost twenty million members from diverse cultures and backgrounds; many of whom are unfamiliar with the history of God’s leading and the prophetic ministry of Ellen White.  

While it does not attempt to provide the final answer for every question, Understanding Ellen White builds a foundation for interpreting her experience with God and her ministry. Basic to any understanding of Ellen White is her own walk with God. Two golden threads weave throughout her life and experience and are central to who she was and what she accomplished: the love of God in Christ and a focus on Scripture. When these two principles are correctly understood and integrated in examining Ellen White’s life and experience, then all other issues addressed in this book are put in perspective. 

Perhaps the saddest reality regarding Ellen White’s writings is that many dismiss them as irrelevant even before reading her work. A Kellogg’s Corn Flakes advertisement from several years ago is apropos when applied to Ellen White’s writings and ministry: whether you have lived with her writings your whole life or have never read her, the invitation is to “taste them again for the very first time.”

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Merlin D. Burt


Merlin D. Burt, PhD, is founding director of the integrated Center for Adventist Research at Andrews University, director of the White Estate Branch Office, and professor of Church History at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary. He has been with the Ellen G. White Estate since 1993. His dissertation examined the development and integration of the Sabbath, sanctuary, and Ellen White’s role in Sabbatarian Adventism between 1844 and 1849.

Dr. Burt has published numerous articles and chapters and has served variously as a speaker, editor, and organizer of various conferences and symposiums. He is author of Adventist England, and is also in the process of writing a textbook on the development of Seventh-day Adventist theology.

Previous to his academic and administrative appointments, Dr. Burt served as a pastor in Ohio and California in the United States. He and Sarah, his wife of 35 years, have two grown sons and a teenage daughter in college. They also have two grandchildren. Dr. Burt’s hobbies include collecting Adventist-related materials and woodworking. He has a passion that Seventh-day Adventists connect God’s leading in the past to a personal living Christian experience.
