Publisher's Weekly

Brendle, associate pastor at an evangelical megachurch in Colorado Springs, Colo., aims his first book at 20- and 30-somethings who are in limbo: they may be called by God to be pastors, or gardeners, or parents, but they need more time to mature before taking the next step. Brendle's book is about living faithfully in the time between the call and its fulfillment. Too often, he says, we are tempted to "manhandle" God's plans for us or forget about our call because it seems to take too long to play out. Brendle urges us instead to follow the lead of the biblical David, who was anointed by Samuel, but then had to wait on the Lord until his calling was fulfilled. The life stage to which Brendle draws our attention is important, but the book is flawed. Many readers may not have experienced the same kind of clear call that Brendle presupposes and experienced himself in his career and marriage decisions. Brendle may also one day regret lines like "Okay, wow. That was heavy. I need to take a deep breath now because I'm fired up and the veins in my neck are bulging a bit." Perhaps he could have followed his own advice and let this book coalesce a little longer. (Dec.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for In the Meantime

"This timely and dynamic message has everything you need to transition successfully from one season to the next in your life. The book’s frank style will position, then equip and empower you. Rob Brendle is brilliant, fun, and witty. He is a man who has moved wisely within his years. Read In the Meantime...and reap."

--John and Lisa Bevere, speakers and authors of Drawing Near and Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry 


“Finally, a guide to help us do what most of us do so poorly, wait!  Insightful, practical, and truly witty, Rob Brendle pens the heartfelt path from God's calling until God's fulfillment of His call.  Bravo!” 
–Douglas Weiss, Ph.D, Executive Director of Heart to Heart Counseling Center

“Rob Brendle’s book is an important contribution for young people who are confused about the pursuit of God’s will for their life, and also a great reminder for the not-so-young who need to continue on the journey with the Author who writes all of our stories for His grand plan. Rob has a gift for writing in a both humorous and down-to-earth style, and he clearly is one who is living his calling.”   
–Ed Young, Senior Pastor of Fellowship Church, Grapevine, Texas, author of YOU! The Journey to the Center of Your Worth

“A young pastor brimming with zeal and wise beyond his years, Rob Brendle conveys a fine combination of Christian insight and earthly good sense in this stimulating, enjoyable book.”
–Dinesh D'Souza, author of What’s So Great About America, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

    I happen to be one of the lucky ones to hear Pastor Rob speek every week at New Life Church, and this book is such a blessing to have. It speaks directly to you and encourages you in your walk with the Lord. I highly recommend this book to everybody, especially if you feel as if your are in that place were you are not sure what to do and you ask what am I to do in the meantime.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Rob Brendle
Located in: Colorado Springs, CO
Submitted: February 06, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I serve as Associate Pastor of 12,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs, where I lead our SATURDAY NIGHT congregation. My wife, Mauri, and I have three children and love mountain biking and skiing. We feel privileged to serve God's people, and hope to spend our lives in pastoral ministry.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  After several years of ministry to young adults, a few common themes emerged from the thousand conversations over lattes at Starbucks. None is more prevelant than this: I'm here--waiting tables, framing houses, flipping burgers, whatever--but I feel like God's called me HERE. How do I get from point A to point B? What do I do to live into the calling of God for my life? What they were asking, in essence, is what do I do in the meantime?

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  As New Testament believers, God has a calling for everyone of us. The process of realizing that calling, though, is not typically instantaneous or effortless. The Bible prescribes several practical, proactive ways to live into the calling of God. I hope to unpack and delineate some of those practices for proactive waiting.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Earnest Hemingway taught me to write and Scott Fitzgerald gave me a love for language. Tender is the Night and The Sun Also Rises had a profound effect on me as a college student, and they are probably most responsible for my becoming a writer. C.S. Lewis gave me a love for explaining theology in practical terms, Dietrich Bonhoeffer inspired me to persuade people for Christ, and Ted Haggard showed me that there's no higher calling than a local church.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  You can contact me at rbrendle@newlifechurch.org and check out the work God's given us at www.saturdaynight.org.
