Now a New York Times Bestseller! 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 thoughts 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.… (more)

Pretty incredible guy. Inspirational...if not a bit crazy! ( )
  avdesertgirl | Aug 22, 2021 |
Has the distinction of the book that I've owned many times simply because if I loan it to someone, they never return it! Challenging, inspiring stories that stick with you and make you think. What would it like in my situation to love so freely? Being generous with your love is a lifestyle and has no connection to how much you make. Yes, Bob's a lawyer so his impact may seem larger than most, but I find every story still stirs me, especially in days like these, to love more gracious, be more open, rather than fearful. ( )

About discovering that life can be incredible in a very ordinary world. Goff takes an entire chapter to explain that love is a verb, not a noun! He gives some great examples of "love does." This is a short book, but poignant. 222 pages ( )

Favourite quote "I want to leak from having been hit by Jesus". Bob does. ( )

A must read! Speaks straight to the heart about what it means to love as God intended. Readable and at times laugh out loud funny. ( )
