Respected historian of science Ronald Numbers here examines one of the most influential, yet least examined, religious leaders in American history - Ellen G. White, the enigmatic visionary who founded the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Numbers scrutinizes White's life (1827-1915), from her teenage visions and testimonies to her extensive advice on health reform, which influenced the direction of Adventism. This third edition of Prophetess of Health features a new preface and two key documents that shed further light on White - transcripts of the trial of Elder Israel Dammon in 1845 and the proceedings of the secret Bible Conferences in 1919. Book jacket.
