Book Review: Love Does by Bob Goff

posted in: BLOG | 0

Picture your grandfather telling you stories about the adventures of his life…No, not that ‘good old days’ tales. I mean the type that make you go “oooh, I want to do that too!”

Welcome to the world of Bob Goff. Lawyer, father, adventurer, and most of -all a very unreligious pilgrim on the journey of faith.

In his book Love Does, Bob shares wisdom gained through real experiences throughout different seasons of his life.

From a pimple-faced teenager warring with BB guns in a local forest to an ambassador for Uganda to bring justice to child convicts and human trafficking victims, the US citizen and father of three reveals his passion to live a life of love.

“When Jesus invites us on an adventure, He shapes who we become with what happens along the way…He says, ‘Let’s go after those things that inspire and challenge you and let’s experience them together’,” Bob writes.

The reader is not only enticed by his collection of encounters related in the ‘coolest’, most riveting way, he or she is also made conscious of the humble heart behind it.

Continually eager to learn from mistakes, take risks and go bigger to see what love does, he teaches every open mind about the most important thing in life: love.

Whether endurance, failure, judgement or disobedience is your faith walk challenge, Bob’s humourous way of bringing the truth about the Father’s compassion with humans is reflected in the father heart he himself carries towards humanity.
