Love Does Bob Goff Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
The runaway New York Time’s bestseller!
Can a simple concept shift your entire world? Bob certainty thinks so. When it comes to loving your neighbors, instead of focusing on having the “right answers” or checking the “right boxes,” what if you decide to simply do love? To shamelessly show love and grace to those around you--what would that look like? Not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings, Bob's love takes action. Bob believes Love Does.
It might look like spending 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. It might look like taking your kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. It might look like taking a road trip with a stressed-out college student--even though you just got married a few days before.
When Love Does, life gets interesting. Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude in this collection of stories just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.
If you love Love Does, don’t forget to check out Everybody, Always for more of Bob’s delightful and inspiring stories!

User reviews about this book
By Kim Guined
Absolutely remarkable read. Life changing testimonies. I enjoyed every word.
As good as it gets
Bob Goff writes this book in a way that you can’t put it down, but also want to so you can get out and love in the same way that Jesus does. The experiences in this book are hard to overlook and real evidence of Jesus.
Love Does is a must read.
Hands down one of the best books I’ve ever read and. OST influential in my journey to be more like Jesus. I bought this book for every father in my life this Father’s Day and read it to my kids.

This book was entertaining but full of so many lessons. It truly helped me to look at life and God from a different perspective. Hands down one of the best books I’ve read thus far!!!
This book is awesome. Bob Goff not only has amazing and sometimes unbelievable stories, but in each story, he ties it into simply how Jesus loves us. Also simply how we should love others and do things for our friends, family, and even strangers under the right circumstances. This book brings so much joy and ultimately you will enjoy reading it and look forward to reading it.
I haven’t read a book this fast in years! I couldn’t put it down! The pure love of Jesus is truly inspiring. Inspired to ditch the moment by moment plans for a big idea, a little whimsy, and a whole lot of doing!
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...
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! 😊
