 The Prolonged Struggle of Supernatural Forces for Creation’s Loyalty as Revealed In— 

Vol. III.—The Life and Ministry of Jesus Christ — The Desire of Ages.  

Heritage Edition—Over 300 Century-Old Illustrations, 724 pages. 

This third volume—The Desire of Ages—covers the life and ministry of Jesus Christ as recorded in the four gospels. This is the heart-molding story of Jesus of Nazareth, the promised Seed of the Woman which was to conquer and eventually destroy the adversary of mankind—the serpent, the devil. This is the story of the central theme of all Scripture, the account of the life and ministry of the long-looked-for, and yet misunderstood and rejected by most, Messiah, Emmanuel—God with us.

Take time to meditate upon the life of He whom accepted into one’s life, transforms the mind and heart and promises to each repentant son and daughter of Adam time without end—eternal dwelling with Him who during His three-and-one-half years of ministry demonstrated His ability to deliver us from sin, and to wipe away all tears from our eyes.

This edition of this widely translated and distributed book is an interactive PDF designed primarily for download and use in Adobe Reader (free software on the internet) with many features—highlighting, underlining, word and phrase search, sticky notes, select, copy, paste, print, and electronic links to chapters, pages, and illustrations.
I have found this book very informative as well as easy and enjoyable to use. It is considered by many (myself included) to be the best book, next to the Bible, on the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ. I recommend it to everyone.
