This longing is implanted in the very constitution of man by a merciful God, that man may not be satisfied with his present conditions or attainments, whether bad, or good, or better. God desires that the human shall seek the best, and find it to the eternal blessing of his soul.

In fact the curator for religious books at the Library of Congress says that this is the best portrayal of the life of Jesus he has ever come across. Read it! Then buy it and read it. There is just so much to take in that you'll never get tired of going over it! I read this book once a year. The last time I visited the Library of Congress, I learned that they believe it to be one of the best books about the life of Christ, aside from the Bible.

This book made me truly love my God. If there are anyone who misunderstand our God, they should read this book. I really love this book.

The Desire of Ages is the seminal work of Ellen G. Through over pages of wonderful, engaging writing the 33 years of when the The whole of sacred history is centered on one individual, Jesus Christ, either through the prophecies and sacrificial meanings of the Old Testament or the good news of His life and message in the New. Through over pages of wonderful, engaging writing the 33 years of when the Son of God walked shoulder-to-shoulder with man. The Desire of Ages is not a strict chronological retelling of the Gospels; instead it is a more in-depth look into the life and teachings of Christ to reveal the love of God for man.
Alongside the cultural expectations was the hatred of the religious establishment that saw Jesus as a threat to their authority even though mean thought He might be the Christ. And finally the hardest burden Christ dealt with was His disciples whose earthly expectations and resulting disappointment continually saddened their Teacher.
The Desire of Ages is the central volume of the five-book Conflict of Ages series just as Christ is the central pillar of sacred history. At the end of the book as heaven rejoices at Jesus triumphant ascension to rejoin His Father as our mediator, White reveals how the disciples returned to Jerusalem just as joyously knowing Christ reigned with His Father.
Through the Acts of the Apostles the good news of Christ would begin to be spread around the world. Apr 21, Christopher rated it it was amazing.
The 3rd book in Ellen G. White's Conflict of the Ages series though actually published 2nd. The Desire of Ages takes us from the expectant hope of a Messiah, His birth and how the majority of Israel missed it, his life of ministry in teaching humanity who God is, His passion as he willingly laid down His life to pay the price of our redemption, and lastly his resurrection and ascension to the right hand of God's throne in heaven.
No other book has so thoroughly and faithfully dealt with Jesus's The 3rd book in Ellen G. No other book has so thoroughly and faithfully dealt with Jesus's life, ministry and sacrifice. The accounts in the four gospels are interwoven in this over year old classic. This book will expand and deepen your understanding and appreciation of the gospel accounts and will bring you face to face with the express image of God, the Light of the world.
The version I read many years ago was called "The Desire of Ages". An amazingly great book. The search for truth never ends, and this is a great addition in the quest.
My grandmother gave this to me when I was very young, and it sat among my books unread for over a decade. I promised her I would read it, and I will never regret keeping that promise. This is at least my third reading of this amazing book, and definitely a blessing every time I read it. No other book outside of the Holy Bible reveals to love of God for fallen mankind as well as this book. I was touched, amazed, and found myself weeping as I read of my Savior's great sacrifice for me. Read this book, fall in love with Jesus again or for the first time.
