This play made theatrical history. Presented simultaneously by six companies in America and two in England; enthusiastically endorsed by schools and churches, it has been read or witnessed by millions of people, all over the world, and is still on the "required reading" list of colleges and universities. It deals with a young clergyman who resolves to try "What would happen now-a-days to a man who lived like Christ?" Through a series of intensely dramatic incidents, he learns that such a man might lose the world, but would find happiness. The incident of the healing of the little crippled girl, Mary Margaret, through faith, drew tears from many thousands of experienced theater-goers.
"The most deeply moving and highly inspiring play of our generation." - Bishop Shipman
