Steps to Christ: Historical Introduction and Notes by Denis Fortin
The second volume in the Inspirational Classics series, this book features the enduring Christian literary classic Steps to Christ by Ellen G. White, which has been translated into approximately 160 languages since its first publication in 1892. It is the most widely read work of its author, whose prolific literary productions are recognized as significant contributions to Christian literature of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
The publication of this landmark 125th anniversary annotated edition of Steps to Christ was specifically designed to coincide with the 500th anniversary of one of the most important events in the history of Western civilization. In the autumn of 1517, Martin Luther first disseminated the Ninety-Five Theses—an ardent remonstration against the abuses and errors of the church of his time.
This special edition includes a historical and theological introduction giving a brief history of the book. Each chapter has a brief introduction, which includes a list of recommended further reading and a description of the antecedents of that chapter. Each chapter also has annotations to clarify or expand some of the thoughts expressed in the chapter. A helpful appendix cross-references Ellen White’s other writings.
This edition’s outstanding book design includes comfortable, hand-sized dimensions; cloth cover binding; classic, highly readable type design; and elegant foil stamping and gilded edging.
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.”
