Bob shares deeply engaging stories from his own life that lead the reader (or listener!) to learn the same lessons Bob learned as he was living out these stories. Very challenging and hopefully life-changing!
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
No, only because I wanted to reflect on what Bob was saying in certain chapters before moving on.
Even though I did not LOVE LOVE this book, I still got enough out of it to recommend it to other readers. Helps you put things in perspective.
Bob Goff is an incredible person and great writer. His stories are inspiring, making you want to be a better person & live a richer life. I like that he doesn't shove Christianity down the reader's throat but instead SHOWS them how being a Christian has changed his life and his perspective on it in a positive way. After reading it, I bought the book for my son who is not a Christian but know that he will get a lot out of it just because of the way Goff encourages people to take risks in life and as a result, be better human beings.
The story about the woman with whom he had an accident made me cry. It is easy to make assumptions about people's situations but when you dig deeper, you realize that sometimes there is more to them than what you first thought. The story also makes you realize that just because we are in one stage in our lives at any given time, that things change and we could be in that situation someday too.
I think Bob Goff does an amazing job reading this book and I would have rather listened to the Audiobook then read the print.
So many, Bob Goff is a great storyteller. The story about what he did with his children after 9/11 was amazing.
It made me want to do things more intentionally with my family, work, and friends.
You will love this book.
Yes....great read...lots of great teaching slipped in through the cracks when you were least expecting it
Many stories bundled together in a great package
Everything.....You CAN be real and...Godly
Love Does would rank in the top three of all book i have read or listened too.
I would compare this to Blue Like Jazz. just because I can relate to things that are said. Also I felt like the author was in the car and we were have a conversation
Bob as Bob
The 9/11 story
I had the pleasure of meeting Bob Goff this summer in British Columbia at Camp Malibu. He was a wonderful person and could that not by how he inacted with me and my wife but how he was with other people.
One of the top 10 audiobooks I've listened to
The way the author/narrator tells his personal stories
The entire book was very moving and inspirational
I didn't read it...just listened but LOVED hearing the inflection in the authors voice! Made it more personal. I love his tenacity and imagination. He has truly taken his family, and now his listeners on multiple adventures and allowed them to do things most of us would feel were impossible.
The author! He's funny, smart and his message is relevant!
No but I would!
I've laughed at many of his personal reflections!
Love Does is a must read! It's fun and it's relevant. I will recommend it to my friends.
