Book Review - Love Does
As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean’s office for seven days until they finally let him enroll.
Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What follows are paradigm shifts, musings, and stories from one of the world’s most delightfully engaging and winsome people. What fuels his impact? Love. But it's not the kind of love that stops at thought and feelings. Bob's love takes action. Bob believes Love Does.
When Love Does, life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss.
Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.
My Take on the Book
I have been following Bob Goff for some years ever since I read about him from Donald Miller. I watching his amazing life from a distance and being amazed at the way that he has lived his life and shared his passion for life with his own children. I can say that his is an inspiration to any father! This book will make you think outside the box about the way in which you want to live your own life. Do you want to live your life in an ordinary or extra-ordinary way? Do you want to live your life completely engaged, if so, Bob can give you some great inspiration! I loved the part of the story that showed Bob encouraging his kids to write world leaders. I am constantly encouraging our kids to try things they are passionate about and Bob did this and to me was an inspiration. The book was funny and entertaining but more than that it will help you to re-envision the life that you want to have!
