Saturate

Jeff’s heart is now in print. Saturate comes loaded with a passion for Jesus and is filled to the brim with the gospel. In many ways it reads like one of his sermons. Frequently, he stops whatever narrative he is recounting or point he is making to challenge the reader personally. Jeff’s philosophy spills out onto the pages of his book through his life story. In the telling we discover a brutal honesty and a raw and refreshing vulnerability. When the gospel has it’s effect, there really is nothing to hide and so Jeff is wide open.

The church is the people of God on mission for God in everyday life. Thanks to Jeff and others increasing numbers of Christian people are coming to this basic conclusion. We are  finally getting the memo that Church is not a place you go to. It’s not a weekly dispensary designed to give religious consumers the goods and services they feel they need. But what does a church for everyday life look like? That’s where this book proves very helpful. Jeff’s teaching on understanding our identity as Christians and his practical helps at becoming intentional about everyday rhythms made alive though his stories are invaluable.

A great companion volume for this book would be Everyday Church by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis
