Ever heard this before? Have you read them? Used them in evangelizing? Your comment in using these books vs using the 'toned' down summarized versions encouraged nowadays?
Yes, this is true. I have a copy just inches from me as I type. It is indeed a fine hymnal.
You might check with this company.

Other ones may have slightly different information, I am not an expert in this area. All I know is what is in my copy.
The reason the elect will not be deceived is becasue they will not do anything on their own, or anyone elses initiative, but they only do what God tells them to do. That is the ONLY defense against being deceived.
Two things: To answer Scobs question about the Desire of Ages and Steps to Christ, yes I have read both and still prefer the Desire of Ages even if it is much longer. Just gives such a picture of Christ that makes you want to draw near Him.
Several years ago, I corresponded briefly with someone who was trying to translate and distribute the Great Controversy and other books in the area of the Pacfic. Can't remember his name but he was advocating using the originals from the early 1900s. Does anyone have more info on whether these books have been changed or edited enough that we should try to go back to the early versions? They are available through many small publishers as an alternative to the newer versions. The set I have now was given to high school graduates back in the 1970s by our local church. Not sure how much is different in those versions versus earlier versions. Or if they have made more changes since then. Not talking about the modern paraphases like Messiah but the regular Conflict of the Ages series.
