In His Steps: What Would Jesus Do? has sold more than 30 million copies, and ranks as the 39th best-selling book of all time. The main character is the Rev. Henry Maxwell, pastor of the First Church of Raymond, who challenges his congregation to not do anything for a whole year without first asking: What would Jesus do? Other characters include Ed Norman, senior editor of the Raymond Daily Newspaper; Rachel Winslow, a talented singer; and Virginia Page, an heiress, to name a few.
Although the book was originally published in 1896, modern listeners will find themes that resonate with the current religious and political atmosphere. What does it mean to be a Christian and a citizen? Does the church reflect the teachings of Christ in daily life, or are Sunday sermons and hymns merely virtuous platitudes? Follow the lives of seven Christians as they wrestle with the practical implications of living the gospel. Download and start listening now!
