When the mine owners refused to raise the miners' wages, thousands went on strike. Stuart Duncan, a rich young mine owner, learns that he is truly his brother's keeper when a lifelong friend, Eric Vassall, helps him fulfill that responsibility in practical ways. Whereas "In His Steps" focuses on one congregation's attempt to live their lives in response to the question, "What would Jesus do?," "His Brother's Keeper" focuses on the relationship between a rich man and his poor friend and their decision to truly be their "brother's keeper" in practical and spiritual ways. The book is based on real events....

His Brother's Keeper: Updated by James Reimann Reviews
I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. At this time in our nation's history, it was especially poignant. It told a story of a man of great wealth who used his money and power to do good and was much happier in the end.
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. You will journey with Stuart as he becomes a child of God and struggles to understand what that means and what God wants of him. You will learn along with Stuart and the others what it means to be our brother's keeper. This was a wonderful story, beautifully told.
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, story flows well, good descriptions, clear message of personal faith in God. I enjoyed the book. It is thought provoking and motivating, relevant to today.
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 when...it 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.
Historic. A few good men led the way to eventual unions.
I really do like this one. A great inspirational read.
