The audio of this book is available in 4 separate downloads, with file size ranging from 14mb - 25mb.
|There are 37 volumes in the original "Testimonies for the Church" series. Nearly all of the information was put into the current, familiar, 9-volume set, but some was left out and some new things were added. Available for download here are the first 30 volumes. The following are all "image files" in PDF format, meaning that they are scans taken of the actual books. Because they are scans, the file size is large, with the smallest being #11 at 1.4MB, and the largest being #1-10 at 8.1MB. These same books in RTF format that you can manipulate in WORD etc. are either already available in number "8" above, or are in the process of being converted into text, and will be uploaded hopefully sometime in 2010 (perhaps never it seems...) It is hoped that these volumes will be helpful for those studying the writings of Ellen White deeply.|

The original 1858 Great Controversy is also available in Japanese, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Nepali, Korean, Hindi, Bengali, Vietnamese, Tamil, Cebuano, Ilonggo, German, Malay, Georgian, Tagalog, Sinhala, Assamese, Ilocano, Romanian, Thai, Ukrainian, Khmer, Myanmar, Malagasy, Kannada, Armenian, and Chinese.
The Nepali, Hindi, Bengali, Vietnamese, Sinhala, Thai, Khmer, Myanmar, Armenian, and Chinese versions are only in PDF, as many people do not have these fonts on their computers. Everything else is in RTF format (except Ukrainian and Malagasy in DOC format) so they'll open up right into Wordpad or any software that processes RTF format files. Some fonts are available for downloading to display some of the rarely-seen language books. The English versions were updated on 2015-3-29, and the English DOCX version was added. The webmaster will be happy to send any of these books by email if necessary. The webmaster wishes to thank the Sri Lankan brother in Canada who was persistent in getting the Sinhala version into PDF format, and the Romanian Brother who alerted me to the fact that i did not have the Malagasy version listed on this page for downloading even tho it was on my web site - may God bless you both abundantly! The long-desired Chinese version is by permission from the Chinese Union Mission.

As i personally scanned/typed all the old books by hand, and they are all before 1923, there are no copyright violations, and i make all these electronic books available to be copied or printed freely, with no copyright restrictions. The Great Controversy translations here were done with loving care by many people (including myself!) and are also free to use and copy for the glory of God, but i do reserve the right to refuse permission to anyone deemed to be working contrary to the glory of God. Any mention of www.earlysda.com in copied material would be appreciated. :)
