Publisher's Description

We're an &quote;instant gratification&quote; generation, but the trouble is, most change happens gradually.

Most of us spend our lives searching and longing for something more than what is in front of us. Whether it's traveling abroad or chasing cheap (or expensive) thrills, we're all looking for medicine to satisfy our restlessness. And, so often, we're looking in the wrong place.

The In-Between is a call for all of us to accept the importance that waiting plays in our lives. In this spiritual memoir, Jeff Goins reveals the unexpected good that came from his times of waiting.And he encourages us to embrace the extraordinary nature of the ordinary and enjoy the daily mundane, what lies in between the &quote;major&quote; moments.

Moments of breakthrough are not where life's greatest transformation happens; the stuff that God uses to shape us often lies in the in-between. It's the bus stops and layovers and DMV lines and moments of unintentional pause that force us to become better people.

That's not to say there aren't moments of epiphany. There are. It's just that most of us find ourselves living somewhere in the in-between. Learning to live in this tension, to be content in these moments of waiting, may be our greatest struggle...and our greatest opportunity to grow.

    In this season of giving, we wait. We wait for the next big thing we have been planning or to get through the line at the checkout. As Christians, we wait for our Savior's return. Much of life is waiting. So how do you wait? Are you restless, impatient, even angry _ or are you hurting, crying out in your waiting like Job in his trials.

    Whatever your circumstance, the waiting is often the hardest part. In his new release, The In-Between: Embracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing, Jeff Goins examines the journey of waiting and looks to the wait as a time of transformation and growth in our relationship with God.

    Goins is an accomplished writer / speaker who gently leads his reader to conclusions that are simple, but thoughtful and poignant. I really liked the personal aspect of his writing. He writes in a manner that is very readable. You can imagine him sitting across the table over coffee telling you about these real life experiences and the gleanings reaped from them. He shares that when we embrace the "In-Between", we learn the lessons of how to:

    Slow Down

    Let Go

    Be Grateful

    In this season of waiting, consider adding this excellent read to your reading shelf or for someone on your holiday shopping list. And blessings to you in your wait!

    Over the past year I have been obsessed with productivity and making sure my time is spent doing the right things and getting a lot done. Other than the scripture, the book Getting Things Done by David Allen has been my playbook.

    So when I got my copy of The In-Between: Embracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing by Jeff Goins from christianaudio Reviewers Program, I was sure that the book would help me be as productive as possible between projects. I couldn't have been more wrong.

    If you are looking for productivity tips, this isn't the book you are looking for. But you should still probably read it!

    Goins takes the time to write about the value of the waiting in between the busy-ness of our productive lives. And he takes his time doing it. This, in my opinion, is what gives such value to this book. Goins is a storyteller and uses stories from his life to highlight the value of waiting during the "in-between" times. Story forces us to take our time to get to "the point" and allows us to enjoy the journey as well. And this is the point he trying to make.

    I listened to the audio version of the book and the author was the narrator. This can often spell doom for an audio book. However, in this instance, the fact that the book is mainly stories from the life of the author, it seems to give even more personality to the stories themselves. It's almost as if these stories were meant to be told rather than read. Goins does a nice job narrating the stories and I found myself looking forward to every chapter.

    If you find yourself constantly searching for the next project, uncomfortable with downtime, this book is for you. If you love to hear a good story told, this audio book is for you.

    I wholeheartedly recommend The In-Between and was glad I had the chance to take some time to slow down and wait.

    "The In-Between" is written about the times in life when we are waiting for something big to happen.

    The stories are from the author's life. He is an excellent story teller. You feel like you are in the middle of the stories traveling along.

    This book will change your view of those times of life when you are waiting. You will be able to see why they are very important times where "real life" happens.

    Warning: The book may make you cry in a good way.
