E. J. Waggoner Biography

E. J. Waggoner — From Physician of Good News to Agent of Division

By Woodrow W. Whidden II

Ellet Joseph Waggoner — his very name resonates with controversy. Over the years he withstood severe opposition from some prominent Adventist leaders and enjoyed hearty commendation from others. He received both stern rebuke and emphatic support from Ellen White. His theological contributions shaped — and divided — the Adventist Church. His staunch admirers point to him as a defender of unpopular truth, while his detractors reject his doctrinal views as heresy.

But who was E. J. Waggoner, the man? His theology underwent a perilous transformation later in his life, however, and this compromised his ethic. Sadly, the ensuing scandal proved the downfall of a once fervently devoted laborer for Christ.

In this carefully researched biography, Woodrow Whidden delves into the life of one of Adventism’s most controversial personalities and traces the evidence back to the probably content of Waggoner’s lectures at the 1888 Minneapolis General Conference session.
