When a homeless man interrupts the comfortable routine of First Church of Raymond, life will never be the same for the apathetic congregation.

But as they find themselves opposed by family strife, church politics, and scorned lovers, will they be able to keep their commitment, or will they be dragged back into fruitless lives?Written by
In His Steps is another Christian film started out with good intentions about trying to live as Jesus actually lived. But an amateurish production and an amateurish cast really bog this one down. The acting is on the level of the high school drama club.
A homeless guy who is looking for work gets kicked to the curb by a few people when he's looking for work. At church service he interrupts the pastor and challenges people to live their lives by what they hear and not just save the nostrums for Sunday service. Many try to do just that.
Two things this film doesn't deal with at all. Many of the homeless are mentally ill and that's been so since the 70s when mental health services began to be cut. Not a word mentioned here. Secondly a great many of us more and more also since the 70s live paycheck to paycheck. Many too many live our lives that way and this film never questions the basic assumptions of why our society is that way.
This one is strictly for church folks and their insular world.
