13 August 2021 | Ted Wilson, the president of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, has announced General Conference plans to distribute a billion copies of Ellen White’s The Great Controversy.
Wilson announced the distribution project at the Adventist-laymen’s Services and Industries (ASI) International Convention held last week in Orlando, Florida.
“The Great Controversy is a marvelous book. I believe every word in this book. I support it and I promote it—the full and complete book,” said Wilson in remarks that were also posted to his Twitter account.
“We’re planning two years of massive distribution of millions upon millions of the full, large Great Controversy in 2023 and 2024. It has already been voted and is called, The Great Controversy Project 2.0. We are talking about distributing up to 1 billion copies,” said Wilson.
The website for The Great Controversy Project 2.0 lists Hope Channel, AWR 360, Review & Herald and the Ellen White Estate as supporting sponsors of the effort.
A call to action on the website urges visitors to “Join the distribution of 1 Billion copies during 2023 and 2024 in preparation for Jesus’ return.”
