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.
A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!
This was just the book I needed right now: an encouraging look at how God loves us and how we can show His love to others. Some of the chapters resonated more with me than others, but I think that is part of what makes the book good: it speaks to you where you are at. It's an easy read or listen and well worth the time.
Love fixes things
I was challenged to Love EVERYBODY better.
A great book to listen to or read.
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!
yes, really enjoyable
yes there were a couple of places that brought tears of joy to my eyes.
I bought this title on a whim, but am so glad I did. This is a collection of some of the most amazing and thought-provoking true life stories of the author. After telling the story he share lessons learned from the experience. If you think these stories are just another "run of the mill" collection of cute stories like I thought they might be, you're in for a big surprise! Most of them are so far-fetched it makes you wonder if they really happened. I highly recommend this book to everybody. This is Christianity at its core and makes me want to free myself of all that binds me from allowing LOVE DOES not KNOWS. If you need to have your faith renewed in what love can accomplish in this sad world in which we live PLEASE don't let this title pass you by!
I can't wait to listen to this again! Very inspiring.
This book is funny, and easy to listen to, and will warm your heart and encourage you to dream big...and to maybe get your butt off the couch and do something important.
Love, love, love this book. I hope you do to.
I had heard that this book would change my life, but I didn't believe it until I read it. Goff's stories encourage the reader to live on whims without social restrictions on love and humanity.
This book is narrated by the exuberant author who probably talks with his hands, so there were a handful of times I had to listen twice, but otherwise the narration is also good.
