When Love Won't Wait

By Roger E. Bruner


Pastor Dan has two unfortunate problems: uncontrollable impulsiveness and an unrealistic understanding of the biblical command to honor a parent. Going against domineering widowed Mama Ruby’s wishes is unthinkable.

Totally impatient with Dan’s impetuosity, she plans to choose his bride rather than let him marry someone inappropriate.

Mama Ruby convinced him that continuing the family’s generations-long tradition of a man in the ministry was God’s will. It’s taken years of misery for him to recognize that his mother’s idea had never been God’s.

But what can he do about it? He wishes the commandment to honor his mother had a time limit on it.

Dan has fallen in love, but not with the woman Mama Ruby has been unsuccessfully pushing in his direction. Can he trick his mother into choosing the woman he loves instead?

The humorous twists and turns will keep you laughing and cheering all the way to the end.

Book Takeaway:

Follow God's leading and don't be misled by the good intentions of others because of your respect for them.

Why the author wrote this book:

As a preacher's son, I don't know everything a minister goes through, but I do see the pastorate from a different point of view from people in the pew. I'm not sure how I came up with the idea for this book, but I loved the idea of an impetuous minister who takes respecting his mother too seriously, and--the more I wrote--the more fun I can continuing to write it.
