blurbs: What are others saying about Jeff Allen and his new book, Are We There Yet?
This is Jeff’s story—it’s a great one, and it’s a story for all of us. Reaching the pinnacle of achievements, much of Jeff’s life was lived on a rough and bumpy road. His is a tale of complimentary opposites. It’s funny, yet profound; inspiring and uplifting but deeply thought-provoking. It gives hope, and it answers questions many of us didn’t know we needed to ask.

I claim Jeff as a spiritual child of mine. I didn’t know he could write as funny as he talked, but indeed he can. I also was not aware of all the struggles he’d been through. This book could be called “Tears of the Comic.” It will bless, encourage, comfort, and be an exhortation to any who read it.

Stay with the story as the scene is set in the first half so that you can fully appreciate the payoff in the second half. And as you read, know this: that very same payoff is available for you.

What do you call a person who is hilariously funny, transparent and honest, a close friend and faithful follower of Jesus? You call that person Jeff Allen. What do you call a book by Jeff Allen that demonstrates all those qualities and can encourage men and women to grow in their relationship with each other and Christ? You call that book Are We There Yet? The story of Jeff’s marriage, his addiction, and recovery has always been a part of his side-splitting presentations ever since I met him. None of us are “there yet,” but by reading about the powerful work of God in Jeff’s life, you will laugh and be challenged to hang in there throughout the journey.

Jeff Allen’s story is a fascinating and poignant account of triumphing over obstacles that may seem insurmountable to many. It serves as a testament that when one prioritizes God in their life, blessings are sure to follow.

I’m not making a word of this testimonial up. I was going on and on to my therapist one day, complaining about all my problems, issues and addictions. My therapist looked me dead in the eye and said, “You should meet Jeff Allen.” Dead serious. That’s how we became friends. Since that day, Jeff had been a mentor, golf buddy and friend in my journey of recovery. Y’all all can’t be as lucky as I am and know Jeff personally, but this book will give you a glimpse into the life of one of the best men I know, whether he’s crushing on stage at the comedy club, or lipping out a birdie putt.

Having been honored to know Jeff for years, it’s virtually impossible for me to be objective here…but I’ll try. Jeff has a very unique way of communicating the one thing God pretty much insists on. That thing is humility. The fact that his humor (in particular, his timing) operates at such a high bar, can lead the listener/reader to think that it’s all a very sophisticated act and that the self-deprecating funnyman is just so very good at what he does. While that is the case…he is very good at what he does…the real gem in this treasure chest is that he’s even better at who he is. He is, like all of us who know Jesus, simply a broken human who has been introduced to the Master Repairman and can’t imagine ever being that broken again. His only option is to tell his story and direct everyone he touches towards that Master Repairman. My friend, Jeff, does this as effectively as any friend I have. For that reason and for a thousand others which, I’m told, I don’t have room for here, I invite you to first relax (you can trust him) then lean into this book and the Truth you will find here. Let it help you. If you don’t know Him yet, let it introduce you to someone who can fix your brokenness. Enjoy!
