Big Plans for The Great Controversy


Jack Henderson of Hendersonville, North Carolina, used to sell The Great Controversy as a literature evangelist. Now he wants to give it away. To everybody! On January 12, he announced his "Great Controversy Project" on 3ABN's Today show. He plans to send Ellen White's book to every home in the country.

It's an ambitious goal, but people are catching the vision. Donors are calling with small and large gifts to support the project. Already, money has been raised to send several hundred thousand copies.

The staff at the Review and Herald Publishing Association (who prints the books for Henderson and mails them out) has been overwhelmed by calls. "The calls have been coming in at such a rate that as we deal with one call, three others have had to leave a message," says Howard Scoggins, an administrator at the Review and Herald. "The fire has spread to Australia, Canada and England."

A physician called who had worked her way through school selling The Great Controversy. She wanted to send the book to everyone in her zip code. Another caller wanted to blanket the area around his Utah home because this was the book that had brought him into the church.

Employees at the Review and Herald are so enthused that some have pledged as much as two or three week's salary to support the project, according to Scoggins.

Henderson likes to quote a letter written in 1905 by Ellen White in which she said "I am more anxious to see a wide circulation for this book than for any others that I have written; for in The Great Controversy, the last message of warning to the world is given more distinctly than in any of my other books."

"Seeing people respond from all over the world, tells me that people want to see this work finished," says Henderson.

Those who want to support this project can make a donation by calling (877) 721-4300 or visiting www.ReviewandHerald.com. For information on how to blanket your zip code or rural route, call (800) 600-7197.
