I thought this was a great book. It really makes you think about our everyday life pleasures that most all of us take for granted and we go on with our spoiled lives and fuss about the craziest thing's when we all should be as obedient as these people in this book. Very little to know one I know would actually make sacrafices or give up earthly treasures for Jesus. Yeah we try to go to church on Sunday but big whooop! That is nothing. There are alot of hipicrites in the churches that should read this book. I try probably harder than some to live right but this book made me feel bad about my relationship with the man who gave it all for me.It made me want to strive in my everyday life to do better than I was doing before. No one is perfect but we can all find some way's to walk a little closer with Jesus. The book was written well and kept my attention which is saying alot because I do very little book reading usually but plan to read more often after reading this book.
In His Steps is one of the greatest Christian Classics ever written. Most Christians today who have some sort of symbol with WWJD do not realize this phrase, "What Would Jesus Do?", came from In His Steps. The entire book is written to teach Christians how we are to live out our faith and "as we are going, make disciples of all nations." I believe it is the most important book any young Christian could ever read outside the Bible. I highly recommend this book for small group studies as it is divided into wonderful chapter with many online study guides available for download. Hurry and find out how to live your life "In His Steps."
I wasn't quite sure what to make of this book as I stared at the cover. It was a classic. I was in to more modern books. But I was surprised almost as soon as I opened "In His Steps". The weaving tale of the book and the real life experience of the author surprised me. Here was a man who truly believed what he was writing. He didn't write it for fame or glory. He wrote it to share the timeless message. And he succeeded. "In His Steps" is not a book you can simply read and then forget. As you read the last words, you can't help but wonder - what would Jesus do?
