Love Does shares powerful stories coupled with eye-opening truths and empowers anyone who longs for a better world and a richer faith.
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 paired 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.
For anyone who’s wanted to change the world but thought they needed money, a committee, and permission to get started, Love Does shows what can happen when you decide to do instead of plan, act instead of strategize, and fiercely, invisibly fight for the possibility God has gifted you to uniquely see.

One of the rare audio books I listened to twice in a row. It brought inspiration through the author's joy of sharing his adventures, leaving the listener convinced that anything is possible with a can-do attitude built on moral and ethical principles.A great book to share in the car on long trips. Well written (it's good that the story has benefitted from the help of Bob's author friend) and presented (benefiting from Bob's unique passion and exuberance which draws the listener in to his world).So yes, a great listen, likely to encourage a "let's just do it," healthy and determined attitude.
Yes, twice. It came at a good time when I needed a pick me up to tackle whatever life brings next.
Mr. Goff uses stories from his life and the bible to illustrate a path the avoids the many negatives of modern religion and 'religious people' these days. My teenage daughter and I listened to it together on a car trip. I surprised her with it; she wasn't pleased. However, she liked it so much she went out and bought the book to discuss with her friends (I was pleasantly astounded). I typically can't abide the books found classified in the religion/christianity category these days, but this book is refreshing in its lack of dogma and in its surplus of inspiring ways to live your life to the fullest and in accord with the teachings of Jesus (not any church version of him, but the historical version) without annoying your friends and family and colleagues.
I'm a APP. PROFESSIONAL and love it!! I have over 100 books in my library and not stoping any time soon!! Thanks audible!!
My boss told me to listen to this book and I'm glad I did!!! This book is funny and all around good. It tells the life of Bob Goff a self made man who found The Lord!!! In every walk of life god is with him and he can tell a funny story how he touched the people in his life and also how they taught him new stuff!! Bob is not perfect but everything works out in the end with his life changing stories!! Fun book!!
I loved that this book was a simple concept but really challenged you to change your thinking.
I would compare Love Does to Ken Davis's book Fully Alive. They are both extremely inspiring. I developed a real hope for change after reading both of these. I think anyone would be inspired by either or both of these books.
This was the first book by Bob Goff that I have listened to. I think he did a great job. I really enjoy when an author reads their own work because you get their intended emphasis and emotions as the story is told.
I laughed and cried while listening. It really hit home and I felt a good connection to this book.
Anyone whose questioning where they are at or where they should go with their life would really enjoy and take something away from this book. I would definitely recommend it!
Esse Quam Videri
Absolutely loved "Love Does." Especially since it's read by the author. Bob Goff is my hero!
Bob Goff is one of the best story tellers I've ever heard or read. He is engaging and his stories have quiet an impact. If you want to love people in a deeper, more meaningful way--this book will challenge you to DO it! Because, love DOES!
Bob's humor and use of words. He is brilliant!
I laughed, I cried...I couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter!
Passion Perseverance Faith
Bob's enthusiasm and passion is infectious. Some great lessons in finding the positives in life when they're not readily apparent and making positive things happen through perseverance and faith.
I love listening to books actually read by the author and this one is no exception. Bob Goff lived the stories he shares and those experiences are fully conveyed with an inherent passion for life and the opportunities to live love.
I love that Bob doesn't seem to ever think that anything is impossible. There's a faith and trust that in living life, and making decisions, things will somehow work out. It's less about the destination and all about the journey.
I'm still amazed at the story about his kids writing to world leaders and then actually being invited to come meet them. And then having one of those same leaders come visit them at their house. Crazy!! Who does that and why can't we all live with a little more reckless abandon. Truly inspirational.
I don't normally "listen" to books in one sitting since I listen while working out or commuting. But when I sit to read, which is not as often as I would like, this is a book that I could see reading cover-to-cover just because I was anxious to see what crazy stunt Bob was going to pull next.
If you're in need of some inspiration and a reminder that life is what you make it, read this book. Better yet, read it and then go do. Love Does.
This book is life changing. Our family has already enacted the verb of Love. When we question how we should help others, the statement "Love Does" is always said by someone.
Bob is an inspiration to everyone. If we can only show 1/100th of the Love Bob shows, the world would be a dramatically better place to live. His energy is infectious!
I always love it when the author is engaging enough to narrate their own book. Bob Goff does an amazing job. Hearing it in first person is the only way to get this book!
Yes, the author reads it with his emphases.
None like it!
