Description

“What Would Jesus Do?” Here is the book that originally inspired this popular and highly important question, a bestselling phenomenon that continues to inspire Christians everywhere. 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, struggles with the idea that Christian discipleship demands more than mental assent. He suggests an electrifying challenge to his congregation: to preface every action with the question: What would Jesus do in this situation if he were me? This 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.”

Charles M. Sheldon

Charles Monroe Sheldon (1857–1946) was born in Wellsville, New York. After receiving his education at Brown University and Andover Theological Seminary, he founded the Central Congregational Church in Topeka, Kansas, in 1889. He wrote stories that he often read to his congregation. In 1897 he published his highly popular In His Steps. The book was an instant success and for sixty years remained the largest-selling book in the United States after the Bible, with sales estimated at more than twenty-two million copies worldwide. From 1920 to 1925, he edited the Christian Herald. Some of the journalist conventions he pioneered are commonly used in the American press today.
