Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss


One of the objectives of HaGefen in choosing various publishing projects is to help the young church in Israel to grow. In fact, our goal has always been to support the local churches in their God-given task of Evangelism and Discipleship. For this reason we publish not only evangelistic literature but also various books that will help the Jewish Christians in their understanding of God’s Word. We also try to reach out to the different age groups, each of which has its own special needs.

Stepping Heavenward was written in 1869. In her book, Elizabeth Prentiss shares with us the struggles, challenges and victories of a young lady from the age of 16 until old age. The book is written in the style of a journal style, and eloquently depicts the young lady’s growth in grace, and the struggles and lessons learned in any Christian walk, no matter what time period.

We hope that this book will encourage our young women and especially the single mothers who have much in common with Elizabeth and her battles with life in a fallen world.

The book was published in November 2010.
