The Importance of Individually Facing the Unique Challenge of Making an Impact on Your World
Steve Vanzant’s book “The Significance of One” evokes phrases like these: a gripping page turner, I couldn’t put it down, captivating, a must read book, moving stories, straight forward, and life changing.
Steve writes of heart breaking tragedy and of the courage of people he has met and ministered to during his experience as fire department chaplain in Haltom City, Texas. He describes the ministry of presence, of being available. He encourages the reader to accept the challenge to be ready, willing, and accessible to meet the needs of their immediate community, their city, and the nation. Steve maintains there are opportunities unique to this generation, as we experience a rise in violence, the problems of drug and alcohol abuse, of sexual confusion, and terrorism.
Steve has a recurring theme of becoming “salt” in the community. I found the “Pass the Salt” applications to be especially rich in material for reflection and application in my own personal Christian walk.
A study guide is included in the book. The guide includes questions designed to help the believer discover practical, personal application of God’s Word. This study guide can be used to meet individual needs, in a group setting, or in a combination of both to encourage spiritual growth and accountability.
Steve is a natural story teller and an anointed writer. His stories touch the heart, are motivating and offer hands-on direction for reaching out to others who are facing tough times, inner pain, or suffering. This is an amazing life-changing book.
