Antique book "Jesus is Here!" continuing the narrative of In His Steps (What Would Jesus Do?), by Charles M. Sheldon, Holder & Stoughton, George H. Doran Company, copyright 1914.

Beautiful red cloth cover with title text in a black and white oval and authors name gilded at the bottom, gilded text on spine, wear to edges of book, stains on cover, pencil writing inside, scrolling through the pages they appear to be clean.

The story "In His Steps" was written in 1896 and red one chapter at a time to my Sunday evening congregation. It was first published in the Advance, Chicago, in the Fall of that year, and afterwards published in book form in 1897.

The story "Jesus is Here!" is supposed to begin seventeen years after the close of "In His Steps." It continues the main characters of "In His Steps" with the addition of a few others. It was first published as a serial in the Christian Herald, beginning 1913.

It has not been my purpose to describe what is called the "Second coming" of Christ, but to picture another appearance of Jesus, and describe his action in a modern world. The world to-day is far different from the world into which the historical Jesus was born. It is so different, that entirely new problems relating to human conduct face the modern Christian. It has seemed to me that it was a fair and reverent question to ask what would be the attitude of Jesus as he face the complex conditions of modern society. It has also seemed to be a fair thing to try to bring back to our minds the great fact that Jesus was a very real every-day person. The lapse of time since he was here has removed him in thought with very many people from the everyday life, and very many people have forgotten, or at least do not remember that when he was on earth he worked and ate and slept and grew tired just like any human being. He moved about among people just like any average man. He was not a recluse or a solitary, but he loved the multitude, and above all he was perfectly sympathetic with all sorts and conditions of men. No one ever lived who was more socially democratic than Jesus, and it is reverent to say no one enjoyed life more than he did.
