Using stories, personal examples, and cultural events, Pastor Jeff 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.
If you've ever shopped at Wal-Mart, you'll connect immediately with the analogies of the book, and if you've ever attended church, you'll recognize and appreciate the lessons to be learned. Jeff combines a light-hearted tone with loving correction as he leads the reader to examine how Jesus can be the center of their life between Sundays.

This book should be and I believe will be used as a tool for all Christians. It was very inspiring, convicting, and challenging.
~ Mitch Bettis, Publisher, Gatehouse Media
The Wal-mart analogy drives home the point.. The book is funny, direct and filled with examples of how making a few important changes in our life can result in a significant impact for the work of Christ.
~ Darrell Cook, Campus Minister, VT
Jeff beautifully addresses some of the church's biggest questions. He weaves meaningful cultural insight, humor, and biblical instruction together to make both an approachable and impactful read.
~ Kelly Ann Thomas
This book is refreshing and witty!!! Very clear presentation of the gospel and also challenging... very encouraging. Best read I've had in a while..
~ Amy Lawson
Jeff relayed his message to those who serve the church as an occupational calling and those who may only be weekend attenders...masterfully in this book.
~ Richard Wood
His use of humor to drive points home is fantastic. The scripture that brings home his points is so refreshing. Everyone will relate to the Walmart analagy for that's how we live our every day life.
~ Viktor Orekhov
"…it turns every trip to a big-box store into a reminder to live out the mission we've been called to as Christians. I'll be listening for "The Voice" the next time I'm shopping for cauliflower and underwear."
You'll love the humor and insight behind the comparison of Wal-Mart and the church.
This chapter asks whether the church and everyday Christ followers are really ready for people to ask them about their faith.
Churches have schedules of services, but do their attenders understand the joyful privilege of living for Christ between services?
Hearing your name called over the PA system at Wal-mart is unnerving, but it's also used for announcements. Are we listening?
"The customer is always right" is a well-known mantra, but that can't be true in life always. What do we do when we're wrong?
You'll be challenged and pleasantly surprised by this chapter. Rather than a guilt-inducing lecture, it's an invitation to gracious, generous, joyful living.
