Abstract:

You see it all around you every day. You may even feel it in the turmoil within you. The desperate tug-of-war between love and selfishness. The seesaw battle between the principle of giving and the creed of getting. Before the great universal war began, only love reigned. And when the war is over, only love will reign again. But in this long and bitter interim, the conflict rages again. Is selfishness the better way? Would the universe be a better place if each of us spent our energies looking out for Number One? Or is happiness the result of looking our for others? In The Desire of Ages, these two great principles are most clearly revealed to the universe. On the one hand, Jesus Christ comes to this earth in person to live and love--to show what God is really like. On the other, Satan exhibits the ultimate outworking of his rule of selfishness as he goads his followers into murdering his Creator. Here, in stark contrast, you will see the issues of this very real battle between good and evil. And here in this book, you will be challenged to make a choice between them--cover.
