Counsels on Health, Page 4

In this sordid day, when everything that was once sacred is being commercialized, when the golden calf is being worshiped on every hand, there are and ever will be some men and women wistfully longing for the highest ideals that properly belong with a profession second in sacredness only to the ministry of the word of God. In the hope and with the simple prayer that this volume may contribute to the purest and most unselfish profession of medicine, it is now launched upon its mission.

Preface to the second edition

The trustees are pleased to bring forth the second edition of Counsels on Health. Issued first in 1923, this compilation of E. G. White writings on the subject of health proved to be an indispensable reference work, and the first edition in its several printings far exceeded expectations for its distribution. The text of the book is unchanged, and the original paging has been maintained. A new feature which will be much appreciated by the careful student is the inclusion of the date of writing or of first publication which appears in connection with source reference to each article. That this volume in its reissued form may continue to fill an important place in keeping before the church and its ministerial and medical workers the significant place of our health message is the sincere wish of the publishers and—
