Reseña del editor
Reverend Charles Sheldon (1857-1946) was an American minister in the Congregational churches and leader of the Social Gospel movement. He is a graduate of Phillips Academy, Andover (1879). He became an advocate of the late nineteenth century school of thought known as Christian Socialism. In the 1880s Sheldon developed a series of sermons that he preached from the pulpit of the Congregational church in Topeka, Kansas. The theme of the sermons was later fictionalised into the novel In His Steps. Sheldon's theological motif reflected his socialist outlook, and it helped to inspire the theologian Walter Rauschenbusch who is generally credited with creating the Social Gospel. In 1900 he became editor for a week of the Topeka Daily Capital applying the "What Would Jesus Do? " concept. Amongst his other works are: Richard Bruce; or, Life That Now is (1892), His Brother's Keeper; or, Christian Stewardship (1895), Robert Hardy's Seven Days: A Dream and its Consequences (1899), John King's Question Class (1899), The Crucifixion of Philip Strong (1899), The Miracle at Markham: How Twelve Churches Became One (1899), The Heart of the World (1905) and The High Calling (1911).

Originally published in 1896, this fictional story focuses on a church congregation upended by the challenge to live out a calendar year centered on one question: "What Would Jesus Do?". As the chapters unfold, the respondents' lives are chronicled. Several characters face life-changing dilemmas and tough decisions. Some are quick to drop their pledge but others stay the course and watch the power of God unfold through their surrender to His sufficiency. Eventually, the church is caught in a bit of chaos as certain members feel the pressure to put God's word into practice and balk. Seeing others sacrifice all for Christ reveals their empty claims to faith and ultimately drives them away. In the end, this purified church begins to affect the community and spread its message into cities that once seemed far beyond their reach.
In publication for well over a hundred years, In His Steps has resonated with generations of readers. Although written as a fictional narrative, the book is much more than a simple story. It teaches truth. Penned by the hand of a pastor, the prose speaks to the questions often running through the minds of people in the pews. The daily challenge to put the word of God into practice is difficult. Many times, church members wonder how to take a sermon and apply it in a meaningful way. Charles Sheldon has done a great service of outlining the answer to these issues as each of his characters struggles through the same problem. From business men to talented artists the implications of being a Christ follower are examined. From those with wealth to those with little resources, the practicality of faithfulness to God is laid bare. Although the book refuses to lay out a series of action steps for the reader to follow, it does teach one how to consider Christ before undertaking any action. Taken together as a whole, the way Charles Sheldon handles his subject has led to this work's status as a Christian classic.
