Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent story though it was written about a different time it is still inspiring to see a life lived well for God with our constant thought on obedience to God.

phenomenal perspective and story.

this was truly inspirational and has caused me to reevaluate my discipleship of Christ.

I struggled to relate and enjoy the reader however the content is Good inspired and is of far greater worth than my preference for a reader.

Historical but awful!

My opinion probably means little, after all this is one of the best selling books in American History! 30 million copies sold!

While I wholeheartedly support following Christ's example, you know, WWJD, it's important to read the Bible and find out what He actually did, not just cite the question and answer it with the temperance movement!

Christ's salvation is from all sin that separates us from Him, not simply liquor, and escaping drunkenness does not make you"saved!".

This is a great book for social history, but a terrible one for devotion.

In His Steps: What Would Jesus Do?

At first I thought that this was outdated and pretentious. As I listened to the story I realized that even though economic and social issues were different (at least for me), the main focus in living was the same. I believe that God calls each of us to make a sacrifice in living which is unique to us as individuals, besides the fact of generally living with Christian attributes. We know and He knows what that calling is and that is what He holds us accountable for. I think that is what this story is about.

In HIS Footsteps

If My People Who Are Called By MY Name Would Humble Themselves . This book was such a reminder about how we as Christians should act. If we just do our part and treat people as God sees them this world would be a better place.

Not the whole story.

A wonderful story on how we should live our lives. What would Jesus do? The reason I gave it only 3 stars is because it didn't read the whole chapter on all the chapters except for 2 of them, it always left off the last paragraph. I only know this because I also have the book and was reading along. So for someone who doesn't have the book in hand, they miss out on the story.

An extraordinary book!

I came across this book when searching for a book about Christian Living. In so many ways it is a clear answer to prayer. Really well written and hugely challenging. Christian’s in the world today should read it.
