In His Steps—What Would Jesus Do?

The nineteenth century witnessed enormous social concern on the part of Christians throughout America. Volunteer movements of every type arose to apply the ointment of the Gospel to the wounds of the human condition. Alcohol and opiate use were rampant, and from this social ill arose the prohibition movement. In addition, rescue missions and other forms of shelters emerged as immediate solutions to the destitute. In a like manner, Christians of this era sought to provide practical solutions to the numerous social and spiritual needs of a hurting world.In His Steps—What Would Jesus Do?The ministry of Rev. Robert Bateman is but one example of this concern. Rev. Bateman was one of eight ministers who remained on the Titanic as it sank and was the inspiration for Titanic’s orchestra playing the hymn, “Nearer My God to Thee”. Returning home to Jacksonville, Florida, Rev. Bateman anticipated the resumption of his ministry at Jacksonville Central City Mission, which he had founded in 1904. One biographer recounted that in one month, Bateman’s mission served 1,284 meals to hungry people, took in 836 homeless men for the night, found jobs for 182 men, sent food baskets to 12 families, helped "five wayward girls" escape the brothels, found homes for four orphan boys, and took care of three babies which desperate mothers had abandoned on the steps of the mission. Such was the deep evangelical concern of this era.In His Steps—What Would Jesus Do?In this time-honored novel, Charles Sheldon unfolds his ideas of Christian social action with the formative question, “What would Jesus do?” In His Steps vividly details various individuals’ responses to this all-important question. Like Robert Bateman, Sheldon believed that personal faith for the Christian must bear public fruit. Few literary works have so deeply impressed themselves upon the minds and hearts of Christians around the world as has In His Steps. For this reason, it is once again sent to press with an introduction by Stephen A. Flick. NOTE: Sold individually.

Hallmark: Benjamin Franklin Calls for Prayer

On June 28, 1787, Dr. Benjamin Franklin rose on the floor of the Constitutional Convention and addressed himself to "Mr. President"—the chairman of the Convention, George Washington. For nearly a month, delegates from the thirteen American states had made little progress in developing a form of national government. Mr. Franklin had been a member of the Continental Congress and called to mind the fact that Congress had started each session by seeking the guidance of the Lord in their deliberations during the War of Independence. Mr. Franklin attributed the rancor in the Constitution Convention to the fact the members had failed to earnestly seek God's guidance. He believed greater progress would be made in their efforts if they began each session by seeking divine guidance.Mr. Franklin's request for prayer at the Constitutional Convention is taken from James Madison's records of the Convention and is tastefully emblazoned upon this print with a cameo of Franklin. This work of art is among America's heritage hallmarks and would make a beautiful addition to your home, church, business, or association center.

When Congress Asked America to Fast, Pray, and Give Thanks

On June 12, 1775, the Continental Congress issued one of its first fast day proclamations when John Hancock of Massachusetts was president of Congress. Hancock, one of the wealthiest Americans of his day, was the son and grandson of Christian ministers and was personally a deeply committed Christian. But this proclamation issued by the Continental Congress over the next decade was only one of the proclamations asking states to fast, pray, and give thanks to God. Congress Asked America to Fast Sixteen such proclamations were issued by Congress from 1775 to 1784, asking states to observe these Christian practices that God's favor might be secured in America's bid for freedom. The sixteen proclamations discussed in our book are a small portion of the thousands of pieces of evidence that demonstrate America's Christian heritage. Get your copy today!

The Origin and Principles of the American Revolution Compared

From the end of the nineteenth century to the opening of the twenty-first century, America’s true Christian heritage has been under attack. Tragically, some Christians have mistakenly joined the effort to attack America’s Christian origin by attacking the spirituality of the Founding Fathers.American Revolution ComparedFor decades, secularists and the irreligious have erroneously insisted that the Founding Fathers were anti-Christian Deists, but nothing can be further from reality. The overwhelming majority of America’s Founding Fathers were orthodox Christians who were members of various denominations. American Revolution ComparedSecularists have attempted to discredit Christian influence in the rise of America by suggesting the Founding Fathers turned to anti-Christian sources when preparing the foundational documents of America. Among the sources alleged to have influenced the formation of America were Enlightenment authors and their writings. But, no place was more thoroughly imbued with the irreligious influences of the Enlightenment than France. While the author of this work, Friedrich Gentz, does not enter into the Christian influence on the rise of America, he does demonstrate the vast differences between the American and French Revolutions. To ensure succeeding generations of Americans understood the differences between the two Revolutions, John Quincy Adams—one of America’s most scholarly presidents and deeply dedicated Christians—translated this work from German into English. Sharing President Adam’s concern, it is once again sent to press with an introduction by Stephen A. Flick. Get your copy today... NOTE: Sold individually.
