Keith Clouten has comprehensively researched the extent to which the Lord was involved in providing the inspired writings as we have them today. It is made clear that, though He oversaw the whole process, He didn’t puppeteer it. Moses, John, and all the Bible writers in between were God’s penmen, not pen. The principles of revelation and inspiration that shaped the biblical Canon carry over to the prophetic status and ministry of Ellen White. Clouten takes a balanced approach in emphasizing that her faulty humanity didn’t differ from that of David, Jonah, and others, or affect the legitimacy of her messages or fulfillment of the prediction in Joel 2:28.
Readers of this valuable book will be stirred with a fresh appreciation for God and His immeasurable desire to teach His wayward children how He plans to redeem them.
