Rev. Henry Maxwell, speaking slowly and determinedly, yet not fully realizing the implications of what lay ahead of him, repeated his astounding proposition: "I want volunteers from First Church who will pledge themselves, earnestly and honestly, for an entire year; not to do anything without first asking the question, 'What would Jesus do?'"
Maxwell never dreamed that among those who responded would be the most influential members of his congregation--the wealthy heiress with her millions at stake, the newspaper editor with his job on the line, the president of the local college, the town beauty. But together they pledged themselves to a new step of faith that would change not just a handful of people but an entire town--for good.
This timeless classic by Charles Sheldon has blessed millions of people around the world who have asked the vital question, "What does it really mean to be a Christian?"

Review title: Saving Souls with the Savior.
If you are looking for a reason to follow the question "What Would Jesus Do?" this novel offers many valuable examples of the power of following in Jesus' footsteps. Readers receive an "inside look" at the pledge and the people that decided to follow the pledge "What Would Jesus Do?" when their minister ask them to "step up" and accept the challenge. This novel offers a great insight into how our world could be changed if every person accepted the pledge and the challenge. *Good for encouraging discipleship in the 21st century and promoting becoming kingdom minded. Two thumbs up for this manuscript.
