You don’t need another Christian message or a self-help book. You need to have your paradigms about the world shifted into truth. That’s exactly what you get in Love Does. Have you ever noticed that the real change in your life-the growth that sticks and becomes a part of you-never happens with a program or the sheer grit of your best efforts? It happens over time, like a glacier slowly carving valleys through the mountains. In this book of compelling stories coupled with eye-opening truths, author Bob Goff shows you a new way to live, a way that’s drenched with the whimsy of God’s love and the spontaneity of following where he leads when he says “Go!” In this book, you learn what it looks like to be secretly incredible and advance God’s kingdom everywhere you are and wherever you’re going.
This book is full of little anecdotes from the authors daily life, but more than that it tells us the reader what could happen if we live every moment like it was our last. Bob lives his life as though every day is a celebration and I would be suprised that when God calls him home there's a marching band, balloons, confetti & streamers! He portrays such a positive picture of life and is a breath of fresh air in such a disturbing sinful world.
The author challenges us to live a life of forgiveness and hope and to be fully aware of the things going on around us and see the good in every situation. There is always an opportunity to help someone and the things that can happen if we just say yes!
I would reccomend this book to teens and adults. It is a great teaching tool as we can all be a bit naieve and skeptical at times but we need a little more Bob in all of us!
