Steps to Christ is an evangelistic book written by Ellen G. White, pioneer and prophetess of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It was first published in 1892 by Fleming H. Revell Company. The copyright was purchased by Seventh-day Adventist publisher Review and Herald Publishing Association in 1892, and was first printed there in 1896. A new first chapter, "God's Love for Man" was added per request of the Seventh-day Adventist publishing house in the United Kingdom (Stanborough Press) in 1893 in order to secure a copyright. This is perhaps the most popular and widely read book by the author, printed in more than 150 languages worldwide.[1]

Steps to Christ discusses how to come to know Jesus Christ at a personal level. It covers the topics of repentance, confession, faith, acceptance, growing into Christ, and prayer.

Publication[edit]

Steps to Christ has been widely published by the Review and Herald Publishing Association and Pacific Press in multiple printings and by other publishers under public domain. Various titles have been distributed over the years with different cover illustrations. Other known titles include Happiness Digest, The Road to Redemption, The Path to Peace and in Spanish El Camino a Cristo.

Versions containing inset boxes with additional inserted comments have been published for youth.

Translations[edit]

Existing Translations[edit]

As has been stated,[1] this book has been printed in more than 150 languages worldwide.[1] A page on facebook was started called Steps to Christ in Every Language with the stated goal of finding out which languages this includes. Steps to Christ in Every Language also has a website, listing over 120 languages, along with a link to download PDF files of the existing translations.

Translation Projects[edit]

Steps to Christ in Every Language has a Facebook page for the purpose and passion of finding out which people groups still await the translation of this book into their native language.

The following is taken from their Facebook page:

When I read things like, "Steps to Christ has been translated into more languages than any other book from Ellen White's pen, a total of 120 (as of May 1985)", I wondered what languages those were, and what language groups are still waiting for this life-changing book to be translated into their own language. As it turns out, a moment of curiosity expanded into this project whose purposes are:

1) to find STEPS TO CHRIST in as many languages as possible,

2) to organize and facilitate translation, and

3) to aid in the publication, printing and distribution of this book in as many more languages as possible.

If you would like to help with this project, you may want to visit their Facebook page.
