November/December 2019

About this issue:

"Heaven and earth are no wider apart today than when the shepherds listened to the angels' song." Including those words from Ellen White's classic book, The Desire of Ages, the November/December Gleaner feature summarizes her account of the Incarnation — a divinely historic event that brought heaven to earth in the form of Immanuel, God with us.
