How can I obtain all of Ellen White’s writings at no cost?

Q: I became a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in 2010. I would like to have all of Mrs. White’s books but can’t afford to buy them all. Is there some other way to get them? — Stanley, from Brazil

A: Stanley, we are so glad that you are part of the worldwide family of Seventh-day Adventists! It is also wonderful that you appreciate the writings of Ellen White, to whom we believe God gave the gift of prophecy for these last days. 

She was a prolific writer and, according to the White Estate, “At the time of her death Ellen White's literary productions totaled approximately 100,000 pages: 24 books in current circulation; two book manuscripts ready for publication; 5,000 periodical articles in the journals of the church; more than 200 tracts and pamphlets; approximately 35,000 typewritten pages of manuscript documents and letters; 2,000 handwritten letters and diary materials comprising, when copied, another 15,000 typewritten pages. Compilations made after her death from Ellen White's writings bring the total number of books currently in print to more than 130.” 

Fortunately, all of her books and other writings are available online and for download (in more than 60 languages!) free of charge at ellenwhite.org. In addition to her writings, this new website offers many other helpful resources such as a large photograph collection, sermons and more. I encourage you to visit it today!
