Overview

In the stirring tradition of his classic In His Steps (over 30 million copies sold), this long unavailable, recently rediscovered, inspirational novel examines the lives of two men, one rich and one poor, who joined together to fulfill Christ's command to serve Him by ministering to "the least of these My brethren."

In the summer of 1895, the mining town of Champion was torn apart by a dispute between mine owners and miners. When the mine owners refused to raise the miners' wages, thousands went on strike. Stuart Duncan, a rich young mine owner, learns that he is truly his brother's keeper when a lifelong friend, Eric Vassall, helps him fulfill that responsibility in practical ways. Whereas In His Steps focuses on one congregation's attempt to live their lives in response to the question, "What would Jesus do?", His Brother's Keeper focuses on the relationship between a rich man and his poor friend and their decision to truly be their "brother's keeper" in practical and spiritual ways. The book is based on real events.
