Publisher Comments:

Youre young? Check.

Youve felt Gods tap on the shoulder, like hes got something for you to do with your life? Right.

But youre not exactly sure what it is, or how to get there? Exactly.

If thats you, then heres a great guide to help you find your way to whatever it is God has for you in life.

You may be surprised to learn that a very famous person in the Bible found himself in a similar place. David was just watching some sheep, but God made it clear he was destined to do something a bit more meaningful and important-David was going to be king. As a young man he had to learn how to “live into” his calling-become like a king before ever putting on the crown.

You probably wont be joining the royal family any time soon. But you can still learn a lot about life-your life, your destiny-by taking a good look at Davids life.

David had a dream and caught a glimpse of his purpose. He just didnt know how to realize it, how to live until he did, and how to wait for it proactively. Maybe thats you, too. In this amusing, amazing, and very surprising guidebook, Rob Brendle can help you get there from here.

Review:

"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." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
