The penetrating and provocative question "What would Jesus do?" in all of life's complex situations, is the central theme of this book. It is the soul-stirring novel of men and women torn between their faith and the demands, compulsions, and temptations of life. Dr. Henry Maxwell, respected pastor of the First Church of Raymond, struggled with the idea that Christian discipleship demanded more than mental assent. He vowed to preface every attitude and action of his own life with the question: What would Jesus do in this situation if He were me? Electrifying his congregation with the same challenge, people responded with agreement to try it for one year. This book is the moving, dramatic story of a handful of Americans--a newspaper editor, a college president, a railroad executive, a pastor, a singer, a writer, a wealthy philanthropist--who pledge to walk in "the steps of Jesus." At each turning point in their daily lives, they must ask: "What would Jesus do?" For decades, readers have been gripped by this narrative and have been challenged by its implications for their own lives. In His Steps is a convincing testimony to the worth and influence of Christian witness in all of life. A Christian classic every Christian should read!
Charles Monroe Sheldon (1857-1946) graduated in the Phillips Academy, Andover. He became a champion of the school of thought knon as Christian Socialism. His theological insight focused in the practical aspects of moral life with much less emphasis in the doctrinal traditions of personal redemption of sin in Christ.
