“I’ve always been grateful for Jeff Vanderstelt’s heart for discipleship. Rather than drawing people to himself, he labors to help others understand the power they possess in the Spirit. He does what all good leaders should do: spends his days equipping others to do the work of the ministry.”
―Francis Chan, New York Times best-selling author, Crazy Love and Forgotten God
“Saturate is a compelling and biblically serious picture of Jesus and the mission he has given his people. It is a book that is deeply doctrinal and helpfully applicable. I have known Jeff to faithfully live out the philosophies of life and day-to-day ministry contained in these pages, and have watched firsthand as God produced much fruit. I pray it encourages you.”
―Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Dallas, Texas; President, Acts 29 Church Planting Network; author, The Mingling of Souls and The Explicit Gospel
“Jeff is one of the smartest, most dedicated, and most interesting disciple-makers I know. In this book, and through the medium of his life story, he effectively passes on the key insights that make him one of the best movement leaders in the country. Saturate is a winner.”
―Alan Hirsch, Founder, Forge and Future Travelers; award winning author, Untamed, Right Here Right Now, and ReJesus
“If someone were to ask me where to go to learn about discipleship, I would hand them the Bible along with Jeff Vanderstelt’s book Saturate. Readers will find themselves taking a survey of their lives, seeing the areas that God desires to take captive for his glory. Whether you are a preacher, homemaker, small-group leader, high school student, or new convert, Saturate will spur you on to live a life that will influence others to know Jesus while growing people in Jesus, not just at church, but in all of life.”
―Jackie Hill Perry, poet; writer; hip-hop artist
“This is a thought-provoking, heart-warming account of a body of believers taking God’s call to live as family seriously. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by the details or quibble with the incidentals. This book challenges and encourages all of us to intentionally live on mission in the mundane details and events of everyday life.”
―Steve Timmis, Executive Director, Acts 29 Church Planting Network
“Jeff Vanderstelt uses an ordinary experience to give us extraordinary insight into what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Saturate is a great challenge to all of us to stop doing church and be the church!”
―Dave Ferguson, Lead Pastor, Community Christian Church, Naperville, Illinois; Lead Visionary, NewThing
“In Saturate, Jeff Vanderstelt endeavors to provide Christians with an image of God’s grace that is all-encompassing and inescapable. Whether you are new to the faith or a seasoned believer, Jeff’s words will encourage you and focus God’s gospel on every facet of your life. This book will challenge the way you see your Savior, your mission, and your everyday life.”
―Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Distinguished Chair for Church, Mission, and Evangelism, Wheaton College
“Jeff Vanderstelt’s passion and commitment to the fame of Jesus are as evident in this book as they are in his preaching. It was so refreshing to read chapter after chapter that lifted high the name of Jesus and to be challenged to do the same more and more in my life and ministry.”
―Matt Carter, Pastor of Preaching, The Austin Stone Community Church, Austin, Texas; co-author, The Real Win
“Saturate is a crucially needed and down-to-earth manual for what is most important―loving God and loving neighbors. What Christian wouldn’t want to know what Jeff Vanderstelt has brilliantly and helpfully given us here?”
―Jared C. Wilson, Director of Content Strategy, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

I also agreed with the author most of the time, but sometimes felt that his recommendations on how to interpret the teachings of Jesus for our culture were a bit risky. As an example, I often felt that if young couples were following his recommendations, their children could often be put at risk. I know that Jesus mixed with all peoples, all cultures, all races, all levels of society, but He was and is the Son of God and also travelled with his disciples and followers as he went about. When we freely open up our home to our neighbours (meaning anyone we meet or want to disciple), we are also putting ourselves and our children at risk in the type of society we live in. Christian men are responsible for their families and mothers and fathers need to be there for their children helping with homework, treating them when sick, hugging and cuddling them, and if one or both of them are also working full time, and active in church work or other volunteer work, it leaves little time left to work with sports teams, school communities, etc. Having said that, I agree that we should never retire from "Making Jesus Known" and we need to be doing it on a daily basis from now until we take our last breath.
Thanks to Jeff for a very thought provoking book to remind us of our responsibilities as a child of God and an heir to His Kingdom
