The In-Between Blog Tour

Shaun Tabatt —  December 4, 2013

This week the Cross Focused Reviewers are participating in a book review blog tour for The In-Between: Embracing the Tension Between Now and the Next Big Thing by Jeff Goins. Excerpts and links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

“I have read and reviewed a couple of this author’s works, and really enjoy his easygoing writing style. He is a young person who writes well for young people. His narrative storytelling witticisms are a pleasure to read. His ability to see beyond his years is refreshing.”

“The message of this book is to get us to enjoy our wait. When we are rushing to the next big thing we fail to appreciate what is in front of us now. Furthermore waiting is not a static place. It is a place where we are changed: our faith deepens, our vision is clarified, and we discover who we are and who we are becoming.”

Rating: 4 Stars

“This book has taught me to have a different perspective in how I should use my down time in life and find ways to put it to better use. I look forward to those waiting periods for the process of my life because I know God has some great things in store for my life.”

Rating: 4 Stars

“Goins does not really write a book, though. Just as with his other works Wrecked and his blog, Goins tells stories. He tells great stories and draws wisdom from them.”
Reviewer: Doug Hibbard (
Rating: 5 Stars

“I did enjoy listening to it because in a sense it was encouraging and refreshing to see the In-between moments of our lives in this perspective, as Goins delivers. According to Goins, life is waiting and in the waiting we become!”

“Jeff Goins was like you, living a normal life, struggling to find “the next big thing.” We are all looking for “the next big thing.” The thing that will change our lives, rock our world, revolutionize the way we think. The problem is, those “big things” don’t happen all too often.”

“The audiobook was beautifully read by Jeff, not often do we get the very author’s voice reading his own work.  The pace with which Jeff read his book was beneficial for me, considering that sometimes a faster pace leaves me in the dust.  Overall, I was very pleased that the very point of the book to slow down and resonate with the time in-between was applied by the very author who read the book.  I would even recommend that by listening to this book you will be able to digest its contents even better.”

“Life is not about achievements alone, it’s more about how we have live it. We live only once, live it to the best by enjoying it moment by moment… This is a great audio book to listen and Jeff’s voice is pleasant. As the author himself reads this book, it adds so much value for the content. I highly recommend this book for anyone.”

“As Christians, we wait for our Savior’s return. Much of life is waiting. So how do you wait? Imagine Goins sitting across the table over coffee telling you about his real life experiences and the gleanings reaped from them.”

“In today’s culture…both business & religion, people are consumed with vision-casting. There is a great need for vision-casting and holding vision before us often, but there is a pitfall in that, which is looking ahead, while missing out on now. This memoir helps you see the now.”
