Editorial Reviews

Charles Sheldon's classic of popular religious literature exploded the centuries-old question "What Would Jesus Do?" into the American vernacular. A best seller in its day, In His Steps follows the denizens of a small town as they allow their pastor's admonition to imitate their savior in all their actions for a single year to slowly transform their lives. Folksy, optimistic, and quintessentially American, this inspirational tale, first published in 1896, is not only a classic novel of small-town Christianity, but a memorable portrait of America at the hopeful, prewar turn of the century. Accomplished audiobook narrator Nelson Runger brings a quaint, unmannered sunniness to this historic novel.

Publisher's Summary

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.

A tremendous tale!

The narrator was perfectly suited to the story, and conducted a wonderful performance. I was struck by how relevant this story still is, and how engrossed I got with it. You might think that the story would be dated, but the Christian experience transcends time, and the topics of suffering and faithfulness can easily be transferred to our lives today.

I loved listening to the inspiration of the WWJD movement of my childhood, but it was more than that. The characters and lessons presented in this story truly helped me to put my Christian walk into perspective, and have spurred me into more conscious effort and ministry. I highly recommend this great little tale.
