W.W. Prescott was General Conference Education Director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church when he presented a set of talks at the 1895 General Conference Session, February 1-13 in Battle Creek, Michigan titled The Divine-Human Family.

In developing his Bible theme, Prescott noted, “Adam is the man through whom death came; Christ is the man through whom comes the resurrection from the dead”. This unifying, family theme is a fruitful field of Bible exploration and practical application found in The Divine-Human Family.
