Book Description

Have you ever wondered if there was more to the Christian faith than just “accepting Christ”? Do you feel the need to give your relationship with Christ a boost? “Wholehearted” will show you how, and will also help you make a lasting impact on your family and community.

By looking at three truly life-changing commands given to us by Jesus, Roger Wernette guides the reader to a new understanding of what Christianity is all about. He shows you how just eleven words—love God, obey God, & teach others to love and obey God—will unlock God’s power in your own life as never before. Thoroughly biblical, “Wholehearted” is both challenging and uplifting. Whatever your age and stage in the Christian faith, you will be glad you read “Wholehearted.”

With discussion questions for each chapter, the book is great for groups as well as for individuals.

“You should read ‘Wholehearted’ and then use it to impact those around you.”—Lance Berkman, Major League Baseball Player

“… The Christian life should be simple. Jesus clearly told His followers what they should do. Somewhere down the line, we have made it complicated. Roger brings us back to our roots.”—Norm Miller, Chairman, Interstate Batteries and author of “Beyond the Norm”

“‘Wholehearted’ is a straightforward view of discipleship that will challenge and encourage you to develop the most important relationship you can ever have. Read it. Apply it. Grow!”—Spencer Tillman, CBS Sports and author of “Scoring in the Red Zone: How to Lead Successfully When the Pressure is On”

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I've read this year! May 4, 2011
Format:Paperback
This book brought some clarity to my Christian thinking. It challenged me to be a woman of prayer and to begin to ask God to help me be what He wants me to be. I not only pray the prayers that are suggested; I have started to apply the book's ideas to the rest of my life. "God, help me love my family" and "God, help me to be a better wife" come out of my prayer to love God more. As I have prayed for more obedience, I find myself reading the Bible in order to find what God wants me to do. The prayer to find a disciple has made me aware of friends and family who might benefit from the experiences and the wisdom that God has allowed me to have.

Thanks Roger, for writing such an easy to read, engaging book. Your honesty and your personal stories "flesh out" so many of the points you make. I was changed, not by this book, but by God who used this greatly in my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this- wholeheartedly! May 17, 2011
By Tim G.
Format:Paperback
This book sneaks up on you. Written in a conversational, encouraging style; it is perfect for that friend who is exploring the idea of their faith, but don't want a lecture or sermon. Roger moves the reader thoughtfully through the basics of faith while logically building on the truths of the faith. If you are someone or know someone who has been beat up by too much evangelical zeal- then this is the book for you. For more experienced Christians, you will find a comfortable reminder of truths and reasons why you believe. Like a big comforter it wraps itself around you and you come out the other side refreshed and renewed. The final few chapters on what it means to share your life are powerful and on point. If you only read the last chapter of a book to know where you are going- this one will be a good read.

This is a must read for all - whether you are a committed follower or not. If you are on the fringe and not quite clear what following Jesus truly mean - read the Bible and read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wholehearted: a challenge for Christians May 25, 2011
Format:Paperback
Wholehearted,by Roger Wernette,calls us into a deeper, more intimate and committed walk with the Lord. It takes loving and obeying God to a whole different level which ultimately results in our discipling others to do the same. Thanks, Roger, for the challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read June 19, 2011
By MK
Format:Paperback
I found Roger Wernette's "Wholehearted" to be so engaging I didn't want to put it down. Wernette takes us back to the basic directives Jesus gave us, His followers, to love and obey God and to teach others to do the same. With a sense of humility and humor, Wernette relates his own experiences as practical guidance on how to align one's daily walk more closely to the Lord's calling. The Scriptural references and discussions are insightful and gave me a deeper understanding of what I should be doing and how I can do it, particularly, teaching others to love and obey God. This is really an inspirational read that speaks to the Christian's core purpose and how to live it out in every day life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and meaty May 26, 2011
Format:Paperback
If you have placed yourself under a lot of solid Bible teaching, you likely won't find anything new here. You will just find it ALL here. That is, Roger lays out in a well-written, superbly organized way what we might call the essentials of the Christian walk. If you are a firm believer but a reluctant leader, you should find in this book an excellent resource for facilitating a small group of new/not-yet-seasoned believers as they consider the call of Jesus on their life, according to the foundational teachings of Scripture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wholehearted March 8, 2011
Format:Paperback
This book provides a very good presentation of the basic fabric of practical Christian living. "LOT" - Love God, Obey God, Teach others to love and obey God - is the acrostic that the author uses as a shorthand for the key elements to Christian living. While the first element is commonly emphasized, the latter two necessary aspects for such living - living out one's faith by obediently acting in the manner taught by Jesus in response to and as a consequence of love, and recognizing that the inevitable consequence of a sincere attempt to love and obey God is for every believer (not just a select few missionaries or ministers) to teach others to do the same - are not heard often enough. This book would be a good selection for a small group study with those beginning their walk with God, but it is also a useful touchstone for those more mature in their faith.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wernette adds a great tool
It is good to have an author write a sound, biblically based book. Roger Wernette is obviously grounded in following scripture, not taking license with it.
