Love Does by Bob Goff

25 05 2012

Whimsy. Simply put, Bob Goff’s “Love Does” is a collection of stories about whimsy. Could all of these stories possibly be true? Did he and his children really send letters to world leaders, inviting them to have ice cream? Does he actually ride a long board to work, because his car was stolen and he wants to learn to be more dependent on others? Yes, I believe so. Bob shares stories about himself, his family, and his friends that demonstrate how whimsical actions of love can change lives and make the world a better place. Along with each story, Bob provides commentary on how it relates to his Christian faith and what it means to follow Jesus. 

I absolutely loved this book. It was well written and an easy read (it felt very much like a Donald Miller book) – one that ended much too soon. At times I felt the way he relates the stories to his Christian faith was a bit cheesy… but in the end it made me love Bob Goff that much more. Love Does compels the reader to get out, love whimsically, and make a difference in the world. I would most certainly recommend this book.

I need to mention that BookSneeze® provided me with a complimentary copy of this book as part of a blogging/reviewing program.
