In the pages of "The Desire of Ages" you will understand, possibly for the first time, the true, underlying significance of Christ's deeds and their bearing on your own life . . . here and now. "The Desire of Ages" is like a harmony of the gospels. In it, Ellen G. White takes Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and combines the stories in chapter form.

Ellen White was a woman of remarkable spiritual gifts who lived most of her life during the nineteenth century (1827-1915), yet through her writings she is still making a revolutionary impact on millions of people around the world.

She is the most translated woman writer in the entire history of literature, and the most translated American author of either gender. Her writings cover a broad range of subjects, including religion, education, social relationships, evangelism, prophecy, publishing, nutrition, and management. Her life-changing masterpiece on successful Christian living, Steps to Christ, has been published in more than 140 languages.

    The book Desire of Ages is not the same as the book Steps to Christ

    The content of the Desire of Age is MISSING. THE CONTENT THAT IS LISTED HERE IS FOR THE STEPS TO CHRIST. CAN WE GET THAT CORRECTED????

    Powerful and Inspirational

    My wife and I have read this and feel that it is the best book written on the life of our Lord, Jesus Christ. As we read, we felt as though we were witnessing each scene.

    Highly Recommended

    I've been through the hard copy edition of The Desire of Ages three times - it's that good! In my opinion it is the most powerful and insightful book on the life of Christ ever written outside of the New Testiment Gospels themselves.

    Very good book for Adventist and Non adventist

    Desire of ages is a really good book for both adventist and non adventist. This book is in a series and can really inspire people to become adventist. I have been an adventist my whole life and this book and other books in the series has really opened my eyes in explaining the bible in better and more detail. Ellen g white was also very inspirational but is not to be taken on the place of god. God spoke to us his people though her and she has written these books to explain what is to happen in the last days here on earth before the lord comes again.

    garbage

    This book is garbage. The cover is completely misleading. The author leads you away from Christ and into bondage. I gave it one star only because I couldn't give it zero.
