Overview

There are few areas of the country that have not been affected by Wal-Mart stores. In many communities, these stores serve not only as retail hubs but also as community centers. In Super Center Savior, Pastor Jeff Noble explores the similarities between the church and Wal-Mart and suggests how the church can become more influential in our lives and communities.

Using stories, personal examples, and cultural events, Noble helps Christians connect their mission and identity with creative analogies to Wal-Mart. He issues a thoughtful challenge for Christians to rethink, reinvest, and repent of selfishness and nudges the western consumer to commit to a faith-filled, dynamic, and influential lifestyle.

Super Center Savior shows what stores get right, what churches get wrong, and vice versa. It communicates how our world needs churches in which ministry happens 24/7 and the contagious joy that is revealed when Christians quit going to church and start being the church. When believers begin to live for Christ and others every day, and not just Sundays, our churches become as influential and important to our communities as Wal-Mart.

    The message in this book is one that Jeff has modeled . . . joyfully pursuing and experiencing Jesus as a way of life.  If joy is based on what is experienced in the church on Sundays, then the true joy of knowing Jesus in relationship will be missed altogether.  In Supercenter Savior, Jeff challenges the consumer mentality that often exists within churches, and encourages those who read this book to allow the Spirit of God to shift their thinking to a Christ-centered, joyous-living daily pursuit.

    In a refreshing and down-to-earth manner, the author presents analogies between Walmart and the church/Christian walk and challenges his readers to avail themselves of the opportunity to experience a joy-filled life through daily communion with Christ. His mixture of serious comparisons, humor, and application of scripture definitely keeps the reader engaged and interested.

    This is a must read for every church goer. "Super Center Savior" reminds us to live our Christian beliefs 24/7 not just on Sundays by using Walmart as an example. Humorous , easy to read, and  and thought provoking!

    Just finished "Super Center Savior". Jeff has really outdone himself with this book. This really exceeded my expectations. I knew it would be good, but WOW! It is a very easy read, as I finished it in a couple of hours. The way Jeff writes makes you feel as if you are sitting around talking with him. This book should be and I believe will be used as a tool for all Christians. It was very inspiring, convicting, and challenging. It's definitely opened my eyes and my heart about things in my life that I need to do and do better. I definitely recommend that you read the book! It's a masterpiece! Thanks Jeff for allowing God to speak through you.

    The book is an extended metaphor or, more accurately, a collection of loose analogies between the Church and Walmart. The analogies are offered up as modern parables with insights relating to the Christian life, the life of a Church, and just human nature in general. Don’t be worried about runaway metaphors. The author seems to understand and even acknowledges the limitations of using Walmart as a metaphor. The content would stand on its own as a great read; the metaphor just amplifies the impact with examples that we’re all familiar with. Which brings me to what I enjoyed most about the book; it turns every trip to a big-box store into a reminder to live out the mission that we’ve been called to as Christians. You can be sure that I’ll be listening for “The Voice” the next time I’m shopping for cauliflower and underwear.

    I thoroughly enjoyed "Super Center Savior". I have been looking forward to its release for sometime and it did not disappoint! For those of us that know Jeff, it is like he is sitting across the table from you at Starbucks speaking these truths to our hearts. I have and will continue to encourage people to read this small book that packs a big punch!
