Love Does Bob Goff epub

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.

Endorsements:

“If this book does not make your heart beat faster, book the next flight to Mayo Clinic!” --Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church, Chairman, Willow Creek Association

“Bob Goff is a one-man tsunami of grace, a hurricane of love.  He doesn't just talk about change, he really is change, as Love Does chronicles in such a vivid way. Yet, Love Does doesn't leave you feeling like you want to celebrate its author, it awakens a sense deep within that you, too, have an outrageous role to play in God's unfolding story or rescue and repair.” --Louie Giglio, Passion Conferences/Passion City Church

“An interesting and compelling story (with Young Life roots) that ends with a practical challenge and punch:  ‘love does’ and God can use you to do it!” --Denny Rydberg, President, Young Life

“Every once in a while someone like Bob Goff shows up to remind us that some things matter a lot more than others.  Love Does has a kind of ‘north star’ effect that will push you to refocus your life and energy on what is most significant. It doesn't just invite you to respond with your God-given potential, it invites you to become a part of what God can do beyond your potential.” --Reggie Joiner, Founder and CEO of Orange

“We liked the book a lot. Mostly, the balloons on the cover. The rest was pretty good too. Lots of stories about how God helps us.” --Aedan, Asher and Skye Peterson ages 13, 12 and 9

“This may look like a book. It’s not. It is an invitation to enter into the greatest adventure you have ever known—your life as it was meant to be lived. Hang on!” --Michael Hyatt,  Author, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, MichaelHyatt.com

“Bob’s ability to love people brings contagious hope and inspiration wherever he goes. The power of love showcased in this book will surely touch the hearts and souls of many people. Read Love Does and find a friend in one the world’s best hidden secrets, a person who shows how love can create connection and make a difference—even across oceans.” --George Tsereteli, Deputy Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia (former Russian Republic)

    Amazing, heartfelt book about how Love is supposed to look, written by a humble and Godly man. I pray that this book blesses you as much as it has me.
  • I’m a better person

    By Joey ggoooo
    Thanks to this book I’ve become a better person. I’m not a man that plans much nor have I written down much about my past. I can relate to Bob’s son and Bob when they speak about just living. Go make memories and write them down when you’re almost all finished. Love is a powerful force and I intend to give more of it as a result of this book.
  • The End of an Era

    I began reading this book as I was coming to a crossroads in my life. I am a divorcée, a single mother of four young girls, and as I started reading this book, I was engaged to a man who I had been in a relationship with for three years. As I was diving into my walk with God, I was feeling a pull away from my fiancé. As I read the first half of Love Does, I reflected on my last three years of life. Unconditional is absolutely an appropriate word for the Love I had for my fiancé but I began to recognize that it wasn’t reciprocated. My engagement has been called off. My heart is broken and his world feels shattered, but because of this book, I was able to approach the breakup through Jesus lenses and he is actively pursuing God as a result. He is searching for answers for what direction his life is supposed to be headed. We care for one another deeply and who knows, maybe one day our lives will circle back around to one another when we are both God-fearing and relentless in our pursuit of Christ.

    No words can express how much this book has touched me! I started reading it this January as my inspirational book of the month so i read one chapter a day and thankfully there were 31 chapters in all so it worked out pretty well. I just finished it today January 31, 2018 and i can say there is no better book filled with wonderful REAL life stories and examples of how living out love is actually an active thing and not just a passive thing to talk about. I am so grateful I got this book and exactly when I did! I hope and pray to take the next step in my life knowing it’s God’s will i reach out to others in my life and around me. And to have fun while doing it! My mantra? Whimsy and Love Does! All the way! Thanks Bob Goff, you really have inspired me and at a time I really needed it. I am blessed indeed! 😊

    Wow.. what an excellent book. It has opened my eyes to how I want to experience life, and how so want my son to experience life.. I love how Mike found God in every aspect of what he was doing and how we can do the same..He allowed God to work in him and through him, putting people and situations in place to align with His vision. I am truly encouraged and ready to move.. I will definitely be sharing this book with others.

    This book, which is an incredible collection of stories, hits the nail on the head when it comes to articulating what "love" really is and more accurately, what it does. It's a light read that will also challenge you to live a life of abundance- the kind of life we were all meant to live.
