Inside “Love Does”: Who needs an office?

Quote: “Love Does” by Bob Goff

In the introduction Bob Goff explains how he uses Tom Sawyer Island at Disneyland as his office.

I love this for several reasons:

1) He is a lawyer. Who offices on an island. In Disneyland. How cool is that?

2) Bob eliminates excuses. It takes more than an office. It takes a person who is engaging.

3) It shows someone who isn’t afraid to look weird to others. Instead it shows a man of whimsy.

4) He is a dreamer.

This introduction gave me a quick insight into Bob’s perspective and into how he writes. Bob is a storyteller and he weaves his stories around you – from this point on in the book I wanted to know more about how love does.

Bob Goff writes the intro to give us, his readers, the value of living a life full engaged, being present, recognizing God chooses to use ordinary people, and owning your faith.

And as Bob says: “Simply put: love does.”
