Steps to Christ (1892) by Ellen G. White

Book's Pages: 126;

This little amazing book has been translated into more than 70 different languages and has had more than a million of its published copies sold and shared in probably every single country on the planet. My two favorite chapters are the first chapter entitled "God's Love for Man" and the eleventh chapter, "The Privilege of Prayer." The following is a short excerpt from the beginning of the chapter "The Privilege of Prayer:"
"Through nature and revelation, through His providence, and by the influence of His Spirit, God speaks to us. But these are not enough; we need also to pour out our hearts to Him.... Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend. Not that it is necessary in order to make known to God what we are, but in order to enable us to receive Him. Prayer does not bring God down to us, but brings us up to Him."
I think the trustees in charge of the publishing this book described the book best when they stated:

"The title of the book tells its mission. It points the reader to Jesus Christ as the only one who is able to meet the needs of the soul. It directs the feet of the doubting and halting to the pathway of peace. It leads the seeker after righteousness and wholeness of character, step by step, along the way of Christian living, to that experience where he can know the fullness of blessing which is found the in the complete surrender of self. It reveals to him the secret of victory as it unfolds in simplicity the saving grace and the keeping power of the great Friend of all mankind."
