Saturate: Being Disciples of Jesus in the Everyday Stuff of LifeJeff Vanderstelt
Many Christians have unknowingly embraced a lie--the idea that "church" is a once-a-week event rather than a community of Spirit-empowered people; that "ministry" is something pastors do on Sunday morning rather than the 24/7 calling of all true believers; and that "disciple... Read More

- This book is not just for church leaders but every Christian wanting to make an impact in God's Kingdom. by Rick on 10/9/2015
This read was getting some rave reviews and was eager to get this book in my hands. I’m glad I was able to get it in front of me because of right away reading a man stating something bold yet was what Jesus said to do in taking the gospel around the world. Hence, the title of the book Saturate should be about how we can take the message of Jesus to everyone around us. I will give a heads up in that this author is very transparent about his own life and may think it’s a biography but this is more of learning what discipleship is, and how to build what is called missional community It’s a great book as well for those who looking to build discipleship with in their church or small group by telling on how to disciple. This book is in truth the journey of being a follower of Jesus and in essence how the local church can be the hope of the world.
- Called to be a Disciple Daily by Lavonne on 5/26/2015
Saturate by Jeff Vanderstelt is exactly the kind of Christian book I like to read. It is practical and well written and I love that I can apply it to my daily life. His writing style is convicting without sounding "preachy". The book has five parts and my favorite one to read was Part 2: Jesus. The whole book is great and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to take their relationship with Jesus and their community to the next level.
Through personal stories and crises we see that Vanderstelt craves a change in how he sees the church and its mission. He encourages us, the reader, that ministry needs to happen in our regular homes and in our daily lives. We should do all things for His glory (1 Cor. 10:31).
I don't know about you all, but I want to be the church that is sent out to the world. It is all our "job" as Christians to reach out and show others who Jesus is, not just the pastor's job. I love that this book tells us that the way we do this is by having a daily encounter with Jesus Christ.
I really appreciate how Vanderstelt shares the importance of following, trusting and obeying Jesus in three key environments: life on life, life in community, and life on mission. To even be able to do this we need the power of God in our lives. That's when the book gets even better - more practical, more transforming, and more necessary.
