What would Jesus do? When several members of an ordinary American church are challenged to not take a single action without fist 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.
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.
