Listener Opinions

    " I remember when everyone was obsessed with this book ... at the height of the WWJD? craze. It is pretty good from what I can remember. Although, it is by no means a great work of literature. I think it's interesting because the author was a pastor from Kansas. I didn't know that when I read it (as a kid) so I would kind of like to reread it with what I now know of Sheldon in mind, and see if that changes my perspective a bit. "

    " This is a great fiction story about people that live in a small town and how each of the people learned the real meaning of following Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 2/4/2014

    " Really enjoyed this book. Helps to remind Christians exactly what Jesus did and how we are supposed to follow Him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 2/2/2014

    " Life changing--every action measured by the standard of Jesus Christ's actions and teachings. Would you be doing this if Jesus were here now? Would it be something in which He would take part? If not, then I should not say, do or participate in such a venture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 June | 1/31/2014

    " I found this book (published in 1896)to be a real soul searching experience for a work of fiction. It was also interesting to read how the author expressed attitudes and expectations of the population at the end of the nineteenth century, that are very similar to current conservative values. JV "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JenNonna | 1/15/2014

    " This is a great book for those who have the desire to live the Gospel and not just read about it... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalya | 1/14/2014

    " I don't agree with the whole WWJD concept,but if somebody has to write a book about WWJD then In His Steps was a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Casper | 1/13/2014

    " This book is a little old-fashioned, but causes serious reflection as it discusses "What would Jesus do?" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thebarrys10 | 1/1/2014

    " One of my all-time favorite books. It is about people in a town who decided they would do nothing until they had asked themselves, "What would Jeus DO?". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee Bright | 12/26/2013

    " On my yearly reading list. Really challenges me to think about how I live my life! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 12/12/2013

    " This book always leaves me striving to do better. If everyone would contemplate a simple question, 'What would Jesus Do?' How would it be? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tamra | 11/26/2013

    " Good message, but not the best writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Letty Preston Goering | 11/23/2013

    " One of the most thought-provoking books I have ever read. Also an easy read because it has a great storyline and complex, fascinating characters, as well as being startling well-written for it's genre. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LeeAnn | 11/17/2013

    " This was a thought-provoking book, creating a What if . . . scenario in my own mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janie Jackson | 10/31/2013

    " This is the first Christian book I ever read and it really did change my life. It is an exceptional book for anyone to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 8/30/2012

    " A nice attempt to show what could be possible if everyone tries to do better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 12/30/2011

    " This book has a wonderful encompassing idea, which is..."what would happen if you followed Christ in everything you did?" I enjoyed the beginning, but soon the story seemed repetitive. I still love the main idea and I think that world would benefit from people such as these. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana B | 9/3/2011

    " This was a difficult read for me. I DID like how I was forced to consider my commitment to Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Round | 6/12/2011

    " I can't put this book down. My pastor recommended it in one of his sermons and is the basis for the saying, "What would Jesus do?" Can't wait to finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 2/20/2011

    " I really liked this book. It helped me to think about if I could make such a commitment and realized I already make that commitment each Sunday. I need to be more diligent in keeping that commitment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 9/21/2010

    " .. kinda long and repetitive ~ plus hard to follow "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 7/31/2010

    " This book was first published over 100 years ago, but it still rings true today. It is very motivating and encourages you to be better than yourself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenifer | 1/15/2010

    " Really following in Jesus' steps is NOT an easy task! And truly causes complications, offences, misunderstandings, etc. Which is why only He could do it. I often find myself thinking about some of the concepts from this book though and hope I've come away just a little bit better for having read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 8/6/2009

    " I didn't give this book much hope when I first picked it up simple because it was so over publicized at one point. But it was a great book! A real challenge to me in my Christian walk. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carrie | 10/13/2008

    " I pushed through to finish this book, but I really didn't like it. I liked the concept of it, but truthfully, I felt like the author was trying too hard to push the message. I also found the story too unbelievable, odd as that might sound. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rebekah | 8/28/2008

    " Even one star is too high. I HATE this book. "

    " a christian book

About the Author
Author 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.
