In Saturate, Jeff practically works out what it looks like to live for Jesus in the everyday stuff of life. He tells personal stories of his community taking God’s call to live as a family seriously. These ideas are expanded in Saturate Field Guide.
“Can you imagine every city, neighborhood, school, extracurricular activity, office, retail center, and industrial hub proclaiming the glory of Jesus in words and gracious deeds?” This is the question Vanderstelt and Connelly put forward in the introduction.
This field guide is eight weeks long and is focused on being disciples who make disciples. Vanderstelt and Connelly’s goal is for the reader to be saturated with the good news of Jesus. But they don’t stop there. The field guide is refreshingly practical. Every week is divided into six sections: “Start,” “Read,” “Think,” “Pray,” “Do,” “Meet,” and “Rest.” There are questions, activities, prayers, and exercises that will push you to becoming a disciple who makes disciples.
There is no doubt in my mind that eight weeks devoted to living in community as “family, missionary, servants” will not only change your heart, but your neighborhood. Saturate: Field Guide is a resource that I myself will use, and it is a resource that you can benefit from whether you just began your relationship with Christ yesterday or you’ve been following him for a while.
