A FINE QUOTE

STORY BEHIND THE TITLE
In the summer of 1890 Ellen G. White was asked to prepare a small book on Christian experience. After her secretary searched through all of Ellen White’s articles and published volumes, selecting those passages dealing with Christian life, Ellen G. White rewrote some of them, and added new material to complete the chapter subjects.
The manuscript was sent to Fleming H. Revell, a famous religious publisher in Chicago. It was an instant best seller: within six weeks of its initial printing a third edition had already been issued (seven editions printed in its first year.)
An enduring Christian literary classic, Steps to Christ by Ellen G. White has been translated to date into approximately 160 languages since its first publication in 1892, being the most widely read work of its author. Professor Denis Fortin, a former dean of the Theological Seminary at Andrews University stated:
“Steps to Christ is recognized to be Adventism’s most significant summary contribution to the great theme of ‘righteousness by faith’ that was the theological cornerstone of the Reformation.”
Ellen Gould White (1827–1915) is the most translated woman writer in history, and the most translated American author of either gender. She was the author of forty books and more than five thousand periodical articles. Through numerous compilations based on her manuscripts and articles, more than one hundred book titles are available from her writings.
In 2015, Smithsonian Magazine, the main publication of the Smithsonian Institution, named Ellen G. White among its “100 Most Influential Americans of All Time.”
