This was an excellent book. Mr. Sheldon weaves a wonderful story that teaches us a beautiful lesson about the value of things and our responsibility to each other. The story is set in the town of Champion and takes place during the iron miners strike of 1895. You will meet Stuart, the son of a rich iron mine owner, Eric, a childhood friend of Stuart and a mine worker, Andrew, preacher of a local church, Rhena, a local Salvation Army worker, and my favorite character, Doc Saxon.

This book is good so far. And what a blessing when my mother, who has dementia, asked if I started another book and i told her it was by Charles Sheldon, author of In His Steps. She immediately knew the book, In His Steps, from many years ago. She said it was one that was read at home, probably her mother's copy. What a blessing!
This fictional account is based on a true event. There are many struggles in the book. The Salvation Army played an important part in the story. Strong characters, stor
The original edition of His Brother's Keeper was written by Charles M Sheldon in 1895, one year before he wrote In His Steps, which was the story that launched the WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?)movement. It is based upon real events of a labor struggle that involved the Salvation Army, and a man named Stuart Duncan who had a spiritual struggle between being enormously wealthy and seeing the poverty all around him.

By the same author as "In His Steps" which started the What Would Jesus Do craze. Even though this was written back is still relevant. Character is something we all must continually strive to maintain.
In my opinion, an even better book than In His Steps and deserves to be better known. A clear depiction of what the Christian attitude toward the downtrodden ought to be.

Every bit as good as In His Steps, I probably liked it better. If you can find a copy, read it. I'm not sure that Nelson is still printing it.
I really do like this one. A great inspirational read.

Was an American minister in the Congregational churches and leader of the Social Gospel movement. His novel, In His Steps, introduced the principle of "What Would Jesus Do?" which articulated an approach to Christian theology that became popular at the turn of the 20th Century and had a revival almost one hundred years later.
