In His Steps

One hundred years ago Christians read Charles Sheldon's In His Steps with runaway enthusiasm. Sheldon's story traces the account of the fictional Reverend Maxwell who challenges himself and his congregation to constantly ask, "What would Jesus do?"

Publisher's Summary

One hundred years ago, Christians read Charles Sheldon's In His Steps with runaway enthusiasm. Sheldon's story traces the account of the fictional Reverend Maxwell who challenges himself and his congregation to constantly ask, "What would Jesus do?"

This question puts all of life's circumstances in a new light. Those characters in Sheldon's book who take the challenge of this question seriously live dramatically changed lives.But a changed life responding to Jesus' example of compassion and grace does not always make things easier. People in Sheldon's story learn that acting like Jesus can alienate others who prefer status quo comfort and social respectability. The real challenge of the question, "What would Jesus do?" is not the initial fervor it evokes but the sustained devotion it can produce.

    "Something to think about!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story kept my interest to the end.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Simon Vance has the voice that changes with each character. I recognize the various characters he makes sound so real. I like his technique very much.

    Story
    "Christian book, good moral but not a "page turner""
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, especially for children around late elementary or middle school age.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The sacrifice and loving attitude of some of the characters in the book is great. It will make you and your children evaluate how you are spending your time and money.


    What three words best describe Simon Vance’s voice?

    This is a good story that makes you think about your attitudes and prejudices to those in poverty and different situations in life but it becomes easy to predict after a while.


    Do you think In His Steps needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Probably not but you do wonder what happens to some of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is a good one, but it becomes a little bit predictable and borders on being preachy.
