Charles Sheldon

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.
