Description
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.

Such a challenge
It's interesting to read this book when I was first saved many years ago and then hear it today. My only prayer is that I will listen to its challenge to do as Jesus would do.

Simon did an excellent job of reading. This is a classic and an inspired work of art. I pray that God will use it mightily.

Amazing!
This is my favorite fiction book of all times! Very thought provoking and convicting, but absolutely what I need to hear! It definitely leaves a lasting impression. I just finished listening to it yet again, and I want to just start back in at chapter 1 again! A great read!

This book sat in my audio...
This book sat in my audio library for months before I decided to listen to it by the recommendation of a friend. Said friend had read it when she was a little girl in the 60's, and said it changed her life. I naturally gravitate toward fiction, and absolutely loved it!

The reading by Simon Vance particularly added to my experience of Sheldon's writing. Simon Vance does an incredible job at adding drama where it is necessary, and changing voices for every single character (even those with only a single line in the story).

I would recommend this book to nearly everybody that is even slightly interested in fiction. Once I realized Sheldon wrote a sequel, I was quick to purchase that as well. I also was quick to listen to other books read by Simon Vance already in my audio library...
