SDA Web Resources

Introduction

Thousands of free resources are available to Seventh-day Adventist members, many of which are virtually unknown. For example, more than 7,000 issues of the Review are available for downloading. There are hundreds of free books, free Bible Studies, etc. Unfortunately many members are unacquainted with these resources, do not know where to find them, or do not spell English well enough to find them. Accordingly I share many of the more important sites that will prove helpful in your walk with Jesus.—Dan

Legacy Site

legacy.egwwritings.org

When you sign on the website these days, you will come to a new page that looks very different and works very differently. To be frank with you, I haven't figured out how to use it really yet, but hope to eventually. HOWEVER!!!! on the top you will find some things to click on. One of them over on the right will take you back to the legacy egwwritings site that is so helpful for research. I searched and searched to find a way to access the former site and eventually succeeded. Here is the link to the legacy site:
