Despite initially dreading a certain required course, Faith-Ann McGarrell  gained “not only knowledge of the gift of prophecy, but also a balanced perspective on Ellen White’s writings in relationship to the Scriptures, a deeper appreciation for her writings and her personal awareness of her role and her own ministry, and an affirmation of God’s plan for each individual human being, especially those who responded to the call to teach.” Read about her professor’s strategy in “Ellen White Said…”. Additional articles in Volume 82, Issue 1 (2020) of The Journal of Adventist Education include:

The Bible, Ellen White, and Fiction: One Teacher’s Journey by Derek Bowe
“My lifelong journey of navigating fiction’s turbulent waters, guided by such biblical and Spirit of Prophecy counsel, has come to an end. I no longer embrace fiction, viewing it as instructive, entertaining, innocuous, or necessary. Instead, I now see it as subtly dangerous, beneficial only when strictly used in the ways Jesus modeled.”
