Meet the Author

Ellen G. 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. During her lifetime she wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles and 40 books; but today, including compilations from her 50,000 pages of manuscript, more than 100 titles are available in English. 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. Seventh-day Adventists believe that Mrs. White was more than a gifted writer; they believe she was appointed by God as a special messenger to draw the world's attention to the Holy Scriptures and help prepare people for Christ's second advent. From the time she was 17 years old until she died 70 years later, God gave her approximately 2,000 visions and dreams. The visions varied in length from less than a minute to nearly four hours. The knowledge and counsel received through these revelations she wrote out to be shared with others. Thus her special writings are accepted by Seventh-day Adventists as inspired, and their exceptional quality is recognized even by casual readers. As stated in Seventh-day Adventists Believe . . . , "The writings of Ellen White are not a substitute for Scripture. They cannot be placed on the same level. The Holy Scriptures stand alone, the unique standard by which her and all other writings must be judged and to which they must be subject" (Seventh-day Adventists Believe . . . , Ministerial Association, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Washington D.C., 1988, p. 227). Yet, as Ellen White herself noted, "The fact that God has revealed His will to men through His Word, has not rendered needless the continued presence and guiding of the Holy Spirit. On the contrary, the Spirit was promised by our Saviour to open the Word to His servants, to illuminate and apply its teachings" (The Great Controversy, p. vii). The following is a more detailed account of the life and work of this remarkable woman who, meeting all the tests of a true prophet as set forth in the Holy Scriptures, helped f

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

    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.
