In His Stepsby Charles Monroe Sheldon
Pub. Date: 02/28/2005
Publisher: Barbour Publishing, Incorporated
The source of the popular slogan "What Would Jesus Do?" - found everywhere today from key chains to the pages of Rolling Stone magazine - can be traced back to the 1896 publication of In His Steps. Soon after its publication In His Steps was popping up everywhere - from comic books to plays - and had a circulation greater than any book other than the Bible. Sheldon presents "a Christ for the common people. A Christ who belongs to the rich and poor, the ignorant and learned, the old and young, the good and the bad." He asks us to consider what Jesus would do if He were in our shoes.
This profound book urges readers in the direction of Jesus' words, "take up your cross and follow Me." Relevant to readers today, it asks us to set our eyes on God instead of being led astray. Chose the path Jesus would have chosen. Live the life He lived. Walk in His steps.

Charles Monroe Sheldon (1857-1946) was a minister who wrote powerful pictorials of the Christian life. Growing up in the Dakota Territory, he was influenced by his father who founded about one hundred churches as the region's first missionary superintendent. Sheldon went to Brown University before graduating from Andover Theological Seminary and becoming so devoted to sharing the Gospel that he labored alongside snow shovelers, made rounds with doctors, and took classes with college students just to gain a better understanding of their lives and win them to Christ.
