“For more than a century In His Steps has helped Christians live more Christlike lives. I can’t think of a novel that’s had a greater impact on the faith of so many believers."
“What would Jesus do?” When several members of an ordinary American church are challenged to not take a single action without first asking that crucial question, they discover the power of God to transform their own lives—and their world. Charles M. Sheldon’s provocative novel, originally published in 1896 and enthusiastically rediscovered by today’s believers, testifies dramatically to the value of Christian witness in all of life.
Hendrickson Christian Classics is planned to include all the timeless books that generations of believers have treasured. Each volume in the series is freshly retypeset, while thoughtful new prefaces explore their spiritual and historical contexts. For contemporary readers, this is the essential library of Christian wisdom through the ages.
Charles M. Sheldon (1857-1946) is best remembered for his 1896 masterwork In His Steps, the multi-million copy best-selling Christian novel that continues to challenge readers today. But he was more than a best-selling author: At the turn of the twentieth century, Sheldon was perhaps the best-known clergyman in America, a preacher whose avid support of social reforms grew out of his understanding of the Christian's responsibility to his fellowman.
