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.

Throughout the twentieth century, the true Christian origin of America has been eroded by Darwinists, Marxists, and the irreligious.

But around the world, Darwinism has been the primary cause of human suffering since Darwin's Origin of Species made its appearance in 1859. Co-opting the "teeth and t...
