Well known Christian leaders have highly endorsed Steve Vanzant's book "The Significance of One" with words like: gripping page turner, I couldn't put it down, captivating, a must read, moving, straight forward, and faith building. I would like to add "life-changing" to these positive words of praise.

He describes the ministry of presence and challenges the reader to accept the call to be ready, willing, and accessible to meet the needs of their neighbors, city, and nation.

An important study guide is included. It is designed to help believer discover practical, personal application of God's Word as it relates to individually becoming "salt" in their communities. This study guide can be used to meet individual needs, in a group setting, or in a combination of both for reinforcement and accountability.
Steve is a gifted writer and story teller. His stories touch the heart, are motivating and offer practical guidance in reaching out to others facing touch times, inner pain, and suffering. Truly "life-changing."

I received the book on Wednesday, opened it and couldn't put it down. Four hours later, I'd read it cover to cover. These short, true life stories are so powerfully written, and clearly divinely inspired, they changed my life. My priorities have been re-ordered. The study-guide at the back makes this perfect for individual or small group study. Be prepared to be changed.
