The Books: Sanctuary Covers
The Conflict of the Ages by Ellen Gould White is a five-volume narrative Bible commentary spanning the history of the world from creation to the future restoration. Originally written and published around the turn of the 20th century, The Conflict of the Ages reveals Christ’s character of love throughout the biblical story. The Conflict Beautiful is one in a long series of republished editions, and to our knowledge the first to use NKJV throughout all five books, and to be overseen by a design studio.

Easy to read. Pretty to look at. Love them!
I love my copy of the Conflict Beautiful! I have found the books to be of excellent quality, with beautiful covers and high quality pages -- I love the page thickness! I appreciate the way the books are formatted, the selection of font, and thoughtful way in which slight changes were made. Thank you for your commitment to detail!
Beautiful work. A book that is a delight to hold and read. Best of all, is updating the Bible texts to NKJV. Most people spend 4 times this amount for a new phone every few years. A quality book like this can last a lifetime, with eternal implications! Well worth the money!
In "Types and Symbols," the Conflict of the Ages series by Ellen G White comes to life in a new way. The books are high-quality, the paper feels nice, and the font is pleasant; I could see it lending itself to long periods of reading without much strain.
The actual books feel very good and there's a good weight to them without feeling like a brick. The fabric covering also feels good to the touch, and the fabric box that comes with the set really makes it more than just a book set; it's almost like a decoration. The Sanctuary colors especially help the books stand out.
However, I'm not sure this is quite the "heirloom" quality that they were aiming for. The information on the spine and cover is printed on to the fabric (rather than being embroidered) and out of the box already showed signs of deteriorating, and "pulling" away from the fabric. In addition, there is not a lot of space in the margins for notes; as avid readers my wife and I both like to annotate our books as we read.
But overall it's a good set and I highly recommend it. After decades of EGW books being mass printed in middle-to-terrible quality, having a book set that looks and feels good is nice to finally have.
I love the Great Controversy series and specially this one.
