A LIGHT TO THE WORLD
Ellen White was deeply interested and involved in broadcasting the gospel to the world through the written word. It is no surprise, then, that her counsel concerning the publishing work covers a wide range of topics: fair treatment of authors and workers, literature evangelism, marketing of books and periodicals, Christlike leadership, high standards for materials published and for individuals who work in the publishing ministry, and the careful management of finances—by the institutions and by individual workers.
The history of this vital work is also recounted, including the consequences of following worldly business practices and the purpose for which these institutions were established. “We are not only to publish the theory of the truth, but to present a practical illustration of it in character and life. Our publishing institutions are to stand before the world as an embodiment of Christian principles.”
