WWJD? Do you wonder where the phrase came from? It come from one of the most read books of all times, next to the Bible. That book is Charles M Sheldon's masterful work called "In His Steps." This book originally was weekly sermons that Sheldon preached in his church in Topeka, Kansas in 1896. However, because of the popularity of the writing it was soon put into print for the world to read. What Would Jesus Do? That is the question for us all.
Fine. Only slightly differentiated from a new book. Undamaged cover and spine. Pages may display light wear but no marks. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
If you're looking for one of those rare inspirational stories with so many moral lessons in it that you remember for a lifetime... read In His Steps. To me, it is THE Christian book on how to live a God-honoring life, but in fictional form.
You're told the story of the First Church in a town called Raymond - and how they choose to ask themselves in any predicament: What would Jesus do? It becomes a thinking pattern and lifestyle. It changes countless lives.
In His Steps was originally written as the basis for the phrase "What would Jesus Do?"
Adults & teens should read it. Younger kids should be introduced to it as well. My one note of discretion is that a large percent of the story is about drinking (especially in the town trying to ban drinking) - but this part of the story in no way degrades the book.
I'm surprised at myself for only reading this book just now. It's a lifetime favorite!

Great Gift Item
I've read this book at least a dozen times and plan to re-read it again. It is also a story that challenges me each time I read it. A story of human nature, and the desire to live a life that is above standard. A life that shouts out to others the importance of living your life for others and holding to that higher standard. It is obtainable, but we sometimes have to make sacrifices... but they are worth the personal cost to us. It is filled with business principles, some violence, romance, action, drama, humor, rich and poor people and their situations, all walks of life. I keep a reserve of these books to give away to others. I've probably given away at least 30+ copies of this book. I can't praise it enough. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
