Hundreds of thousands of copies of Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing have been printed and distributed in nearly a score of languages since it was first published in 1896. In English-reading countries several editions with identical textual content but with variations in format and pagination have been widely distributed. To eliminate confusion in the use of the volume in reference work, a standard page has been adopted which will serve as the basis of present and subsequent printings.
In several former editions, in an endeavor to achieve a certain format, selections from verses of poetry were, with the consent of the author, inserted by the publishers in a number of places throughout the text. In this edition, only poetry selected and made a part of the text by the author herself is retained. The addition of both Scripture and subject indexes makes this volume more useful.
That the lessons drawn from the teachings of the Master herein set forth may continue to enlighten, encourage, and bless mankind, is the sincere wish of the publishers and
The Trustees of the Ellen G. White Publications.
