In His Steps by Charles Monroe Sheldon Summary
"Spirituality involves taking our personal experience seriously as raw material for redemption and holiness, examining the material of our daily lives with as much rigor as we do Scripture and doctrine. The Confessions is the landmark work in this exercise." --Eugene Peterson, from his book "Take and Read" Written in the waning days of the Roman era, Augustine's "Confessions" are the moving diary of a soul's journey. From his earliest memories of childhood, through his turbulent and licentious youth, to his resolute conversion at the age of 32, Augustine traces a pilgrimage of unbounded grace. Throughout, he passionately addresses the spiritual questions that have engaged thoughtful minds since time began.

In His Steps by Charles Sheldon Summary
In His Steps is the dramatic story of a pastor and a small group of Christians who determined in their hearts to react in every situation as they thought Jesus would. Set against the hypocrisy and social upheavals of the 1890s, it provides delightful color and style, and depicts the same sordid plight of churches and Christians today. Founded upon God's Word, its focus is the verse in 1 Peter: "For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps." Because of a sudden and upsetting incident which disrupted the Sunday morning worship service of a small congregation, the world has been set aglow for Christ. Souls have been challenged to find the perfect will of God for their lives, to follow the steps of the Saviour wherever they should lead and despite persecution or crucifixion that might follow--just to know the joy of walking In His Steps.

In His Steps Today by Marti Hefley Summary
"What would Jesus do?" In the classic "In His Steps" by Charles Sheldon, a group of Christians makes this motto their guide for daily living; their lives are set aglow for Christ. But that was in 1890! Would it work in today's world? Another group of Christians decides to try it. Heather, a homemaker obsessed by her beautiful home, is the central character whose experiences and decisions interweave with those of the other members. A professional baseball player and his pregnant wife; an ambitious car dealer; a beautiful, withdrawn matron in a home for adults with mental challenges; a doctor and his sensitive wife; and a brilliant computer expert and his librarian spouse all face inner frustrations and outside obstructions to fully yielding their lives to Christ. Prestige, money, possessions, past sorrows, and personal time have to be sacrificed or at least put in second place. Only then would they gain the spiritual help, joy, and satisfaction God is willing and waiting to give those who allow Jesus to truly live HIs life through them.
Walking in His Steps by Peter Walker,Graham Tomlin Summary
This book takes stock of the relevance of Israel for Christians in the new millennium and provides an informed view of the Holy Land for those visiting--especially those without a spiritual tradition of pilgrimage. Walking in His Steps will help Christians wrestle with the theological and spiritual issues which a visit to the Holy Land raises: Are these really 'holy' places? Can we learn from the 'Desert Fathers'? What are God's purposes for this modern land and for the Jews? As these issues are particularly keenly felt in the UK, the USA and Australasia, an international audience will appreciate the book's content as it covers the history of the Holy Land from the early Church onwards; the traditions of the Desert Fathers, meditation and spirituality; Prophetic issues of Israel and Palestine; the role of an Evangelical witness to Christ in the Land of the Bible; and issues of mission in the Middle East. The book is informative, reflective and theologically backed. It includes an Appendix with food for thought in some particular locations: the Mount of Olives, Bethlehem, the Judean Desert, Golgotha, Galilee and Mount Tabor.

In His Very Steps by Charles J. Williams, Jr. Summary
Everyone thought someone was doing what needed to be done to help the poor and needy, but people were slipping through the cracks. A mother and her children are overlooked, and a child dies.Written for those who believe the Bible is the ultimate authority in all issues of life, this group of Christians feel they totally blew it by replacing God's written instructions with the status quo. Wanting to not make that mistake again, the Reverend Jim Harter leads a faithful few to embark on a one-year Bible study to ensure they apply Christ's model of faith and obedience in all matters of faith, life, business, and love. Sound impossible? It will be without the Holy Spirit's help and a simple question to guide them, “What does the Bible say?” -- but not everyone is happy with the changes.Ten years in the making and reflective of much of the author's 17 years as a Southern Baptist Pastor, In His Very Steps is a new Christian fiction series emphasizing seven disciplines around the disciples cross: obedience, witnessing, prayer, worship, fellowship, service, and discipleship. In "What Does the Bible Say?" Dr. Williams applies conservative theology and years of evangelical ministry to address ripped-out-of-the-headlines topics: evolution, professional ethics, pre-marital sex, contemporary theology, social responsibility, Christian division, Christianity and politics, and more.The stunning ending will leave you rejoicing while considering how wonderful the world could be if people lived by God's precepts instead of mankind's good-boy guidelines. In reality, living in the very steps of Jesus is not only possible but it is a promised, future reality (Rev 21).
