    The Choice of Title for the Forthcoming Book

    James and Ellen White agreed upon the title for the anticipated book as they traveled homeward from the Ohio appointments. It is probable that the idea of the title came from a little volume of 167 pages received at the Review office from its author, H. L. Hastings, of Rochester, New York. That title read The Great Controversy Between God and Man: Its Origin, Progress, and Termination. (Neither then nor now have there been any copyright restrictions on book titles.) Uriah Smith gave editorial notice to the Hastings book in the Ibid., March 18, 1858, and described its contents. Ellen White's approach to the subject and breadth of coverage, based on the visions of the late 1840s and 1858, is very different from that represented in the Hastings book.1BIO 375.2
