The Missing Chapter from The Great ControversyAbout this book
At age 20, I was loaned the book The Great Controversy in Spanish. Chapter 13 made a great impact in me. Sometime after that I learned that that chapter was not part of the English original. It was included in the Spanish translation with the approval of Ellen G. White. Hence The Great Controversy in English has 42 chapters and in Spanish it has 43. The extra chapter in the Spanish work is chapter 13. It is my prayer, as you read this translation that, as expressed in tracts from the Reformation, faith elevates you to God, and love causes you to reach down to humanity, while still abiding always with God.
The original writing of this work is the result of the research by Clarence C. Crisler, secretary to Ellen G. White, and Harry Harvey Hall, manager of the Book Department at Pacific Press. Their work was presented to Mrs. White for approval and translated into Spanish by Pr. Eduardo Forga from Peru. The work of brothers Crisler and Hall that, with Mrs. White's permission, became part of The Great Controversy in Spanish, is titled El Despertar de España (The Awakening of Spain). Unfortunately, the English original of their work has since been lost. This background was told to me by Timothy Poirier, Vice-Director of the Ellen G. White Estate, just prior to my translating and publishing this work.

In 2004 I was driving to work heading east (in Miami), when suddenly I saw a ball of radiant, white light flying through the sky, coming from the north-east, and heading straight towards me. It came through the windshield of my car and entered my head at a point right above my left brow. That light spoke to me in the form of a thought, and the authority of an order. This it was it said: "Translate into English the extra chapter from The Great Controversy and publish it." Thereafter I called the Ellen G. White Estate to learn how it was that there was an extra chapter in the Spanish version. After learning about its background and that the English original was lost, Timothy Poirier, Vice-Director, also told me that they had been talking about translating it back into English because over the years people occasionally called asking for it. I told him I was going to translate it. He asked me for a copy, and after it was published I sent it to him.
