While THE GREAT CONTROVERSY BETWEEN CHRIST AND SATAN was originally written in the 1880s, the topics remain relevant for today.

One of the major topics that runs throughout the book is the Biblical Sabbath, or seventh day Sabbath(Saturday).
Mrs. White used a large number of Catholic sources for quotes to expose the origin of Sunday worship.

This book also addressed church history and provided brief sketches of some of the Reformation leaders and martyrs throughout history.
Her treatment of Luther could be viewed as "generous". She accented the positive and didn't delve into the dark side of Luther.

In writing about Tyndale she discussed Bible translations and some of the related inaccuracies.

Mrs. White also identified the "mystery of iniquity" that Paul wrote of in II Thessalonians 2:7.

The "Historical Dating of Chapter" was a helpful feature in the book.

The last part of the book is the author's plausible interpretation of the Great controversy's end.

Along with a mountain of Scripture quotes, Mrs. White offered some memorable advice.

"Those who will not read the lessons from the book of God, are bidden to read it in the history of nations"- page 310.

"...how dare men teach that the Revelation is a mystery, beyond the reach of human understanding? It is a mystery revealed, a book opened."- page 364.

"It is not enough to have good intentions; it is not enough to do what a man thinks is right, or what the minister tells him is right. His soul's salvation is at stake, and he should search the Scriptures for himself."- page 635.

I found the book to be beautifully written, based on Scripture, and sensible.
Read the book for yourself, take the author's advice and compare it with Scripture and decide for yourself
