MINISTRY OF HEALING

One of the best things you can do for

yourself is to understand—and follow—the laws of health that govern body, mind,

and spirit.

The Ministry of Healing, Ellen G. White’s classic work on health and healing, has helped

so many throughout the world find a better way and a simpler life filled with

health, happiness, and service to others.



The message of the original book has not been changed, but long sentences have been shortened, and outdated words have been replaced by today’s vocabulary."

Ellen

In the century that

has passed since the book first appeared in 1905, the principles of health and

service outlined in it have not changed. But the words we use and the way we

express our thoughts have changed significantly. Thus, for the benefit of

today’s generation, the Ellen G. White Estate has produced the current volume, The Ministry of Health and Healing, an adaptation of The Ministry

of Healing.
The message of the original book has

not been changed, but long sentences have been shortened, and outdated words

have been replaced by today’s vocabulary. The result is a fresh look at the

principles that make up God’s approach to the happy, healthy life He wants

every person to enjoy. This book offers priceless insights into the many

factors that contribute to a life filled with health and healing.
