Unfamiliar with Stan Toler, the title of this book really peaked my curiosity!
Stan Toler, senior pastor of Trinity Church of the Nazarene, shares encouragement, humor and shows us how God is still at work in our lives even when everything seems to be going wrong. The chapter titles of this book made me laugh, as I could personally relate to just about all of them.
I enjoyed his honesty in the introduction where he tells of the “buzzards” circling as he was writing this book – his mother-in-law pa ...more
The Buzzards are Circling but God's Not Finished with Me Yet by Stan Toler is a deeply insightful look at trusting the will of God told with a light touch. Toler must have taken Mary Poppin's advice "A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down" to heart, because he packs lots of humor as well as wisdom in this terrific book.

Stan Toler provides real life scenarios to go along with the bible verses to help us understand God's always there for us. God is not done with us, until he decides. Even if things look bad, that there is no hope remember God is always in charge. He is our constant always watching over us, protecting us and providing exactly what we need. This book was wonderful, one that could be used as a Sunday school class study.
This book is very encouraging for anyone who feels that God might not be using them for much of anything. Mr. Toler's use of humor and humorous stories do a great job of illustrating certain points we may forget when we feel like there is nowhere left to turn. He has served up a great reminder that God is still at work in the world and our lives if we just let his will take the steering wheel. A very uplifting book and a good, quick read.
I was LOL throughout this book. Very entertaining and uplifting. I appreciated the compilation and understanding of tough times. I coould see that he was sharing from his point of view but feel he could have been more sensitive to other groups....specifically talking about marriage and not supporting those who chose to be single (also biblical). I am sharing this book today.
The Buzzards Are Circling is a cute book, Toler, using humor to guide us through God's love for us even in difficult circumstances. I bought it the day the stock market plummeted. The book gave me renewed faith and hope along with plenty of giggles. I feel better now.
