Over 100 years ago, Reverend Charles Sheldon stepped up to the pulpit to deliver a sermon to his little flock of Congregationalists. Little did he know that his humble parable would evolve into a novel that would be published in 45 languages and affect the lives of at least 15 million people. A desperate, unemployed printer, looking for help in the mythical town of Raymond, is ignored until he's on the verge of dying. His last words, as he collapses in front of a church congregation, point out the difference between believing in Christianity and actually living it. The death of the homeless man becomes the catalyst for a year-long pact. What happens when an entire congregation decides to stop before every decision and ask itself, What would Jesus do? In His Steps is a book about life. Few books, other than the Bible, have been so widely circulated. Since its first publication, this inspirational classic has never been out of print. Its simple message transcends literature, theology, and religion.

    " I just reread this classic for the third time, and just as always it shook up my view of christianity. It is a novel about a pastor that challenges his church not to do anything without first asking "What would Jesus do?" As each of the doctors, buisnessman, authors, newspapaer editors, etc... do this very thing, it begins to shake up not only their lives but the enviroment of the town in which they live. Ultimately, the movement begins to spread to other cities and states. I wonder what would happen to this country if all of us that claim to be christians, would start acting as Jesus would act? "

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 2/10/2014

    " Such a great reminder of how I really want to live my life and be with my family "

    " I really like the IDEA of this book - a pastor challenges his congregation to not do anything for a whole year without first asking, "What would Jesus do?" and then committing themselves to do that very thing. Half-way through the book, though, I had to force myself to keep going. The author beats you over the head with his agenda so many times that you get sick of it. It also bothered me that he never included a character with kids in the book. What? Only non-parents can become Christ-like? That said, I have been asking myself, "what would Jesus do?" more often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thebarrys10 | 2/4/2014

    " 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 Amanda | 1/30/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 1/27/2014

    " A simple little book about how a congregation becomes inspired to live life as Christ would, and the changes that it makes for them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rainey Turlington | 1/11/2014

    " This is a book I enjoy reading time and again. Although some of the events that take place are locked in their time, the message always reaches into my heart and renews the question of how literally I am following Jesus' commands. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Hostetler | 1/7/2014

    " Such a quick read, but excellent. Challenges you to walk in the steps of the Lord Jesus every day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginger Clausen | 1/2/2014

    " I found this book years ago in a stack of books I inherited from my great grandfather and fell in love with it! This is where the phrase, "What would Jesus do?" originated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Casper | 12/27/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 11/21/2013

    " The concept of the book was great, but it was a little repetitive on its theme to get rid of saloons so at times the book bogged down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 10/29/2013

    " A classic of sorts. A familiar scenario that kept this reader intrigued to the end. A "prequel" perhaps to Warren's 40 day plan. I really like this book and has powerful lessons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica Petree | 6/20/2013

    " **This book is not the same edition that I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 1/17/2013

    " The original story that inspired "What Would Jesus Do?". A great story and worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 12/29/2012

    " You have to remember this was written about 115-years ago. It makes one think what the world would look like if everyone lived like this...I doubt this will ever happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 10/28/2012

    " A very interesting look at what happens when an entire town tries to ask themselves, "what would Jesus do?" before they do anything. It completely changes their lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlotte Tabor | 10/12/2012

    " One of the most stirring books I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 9/23/2012

    " Really good, and very moving. While I think some readers need to remember the era in which it was written, other events seem very universal. I would recommend this to Christians just starting out and for those that have been Christians for a long time. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheryl | 9/2/2012

    " This is one of my favorite books. The original source of What Would Jesus Do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 6/22/2012

    " This was an interesting and challenging read. Challenging as in it causes you to re-evaluate your dedication to God. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fred Rivett | 8/8/2011

    " A good book that provokes thought about the daily decisions we make and the way we use the life we're given. I'm not really a novel man so didn't enjoy it that much, but you can see why it's a popular book. If you're into novels then I recommend it, it's not too long and worth a read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Hoag | 8/1/2011

    " The original WWJD, circa 1900. Perennial question, but I don't consider this to be a serious answer even for its day. More about class issues for the upwardly-mobile and religious "enthusiasm" but these points are equally valid today. "
