IN HIS STEPS
Pastor Charles M. Sheldon tramped the streets of Topeka, Kansas, disguised as an unemployed printer to research the help and concern of Christians and Christian churches. Shocked at how little he received, he wrote a series of stories asking the question, “What would Jesus do?” The stories were about what happened when a handful of Christians began to answer that question honestly, and then do what they believed He would do—regardless of the results. He read the stories from his pulpit on Sunday evenings. Within a few weeks, he was reading to standing-room only crowds of mostly young people.
