A film every Christian should see
27 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"In His Steps," is based on the 1896 novel of the same name by Charles M. Sheldon. I have not read the book, although I certainly intend to after seeing this film, so I cannot say how faithfully it follows.

The premise of the film is the inspiration of the origination of the popular modern day question, "What would Jesus do?" It follows a group of Christians, including an aspiring actress and a newspaper publisher as the main characters that accept their pastor's challenge to seek a deeper relationship with Christ, and ask themselves, "Is there more to Christianity than faithfully attending church and being a good person?" I would be giving nothing away in the film by telling of this group's discoveries to the faithful few that already know, but I want to ensure my review is not omitted due to "spoilers."

Concerning film quality, it's not bad for 1964, and although I do not know this for fact, I would venture to say that it was funded and produced by a church group, because I just can't see Hollywood doing it, given the depth of the subject matter.

"In His Steps," falls short of a perfect rating because I felt there could have been much more depth to the characters, and how their renewed commitment to Christ affected their lives and those around them (the film's run time is only 1 hour and 13 minutes). Also, while it did not affect my rating, I feel the story presented in the film desperately needs to be updated to present day, but the message is still there, powerful and true.

The film's key verse: "Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that we should follow in his steps." 1 Peter 2:21.
