Book Review: Bob Goff’s Love Does

Book Review

Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World by Bob Goff



Two words to describe not only the book Love Does, but its author Bob Goff. Bob Goff’s book invites readers to move beyond concept and into action.

Each chapter in the book shows love doing and the beauty and life it brings. It also gives us Bob Goff and his incredible stories. Some readers may remember meeting Bob Goff in the pages of Donald Miller‘s A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. If you were like me, you were intrigued and fascinated with this man who has chosen to live his life in such an atypical way.

In Love Does you will find yourself delighting in each story and caper Goff recounts. He has a way of making you want to use words like whimsical and caper. He has a way of making you excited about life. About living. About enjoying adventures with Jesus.

I read this book two weeks ago. In the span of 24 hours I read, I highlighted text, and I wrote in my copy. I shared my book with a friend. She read the book in one day and also highlighted and wrote in the margins. As of today, I am rereading Love Does. This book has gripped me. This man’s way of doing life has gripped me. And I am excited to see what capers and adventures are to be had with Jesus. I will continue sharing this book, sharing the joy of one’s man incredible journey, and sharing the message – love is all about doing.

This book is a must for everyone. I mean everyone. This is such a great, fun read parents will have an incredible opportunity to share and discuss with their children. It is a book for young and old. It is a book for the generations. Never has a non-fiction book so captivated my imagination. This book will teach you and compel you to show in your life that love, indeed, does.
