Book Review: Love Does

(Chris writes)

Love Does by Bob Goff

 I recently finished reading “Love Does” by Bob Goff as a reviewer for Book Sneeze . This is a book that is a collection of stories from Bob’s life, followed by a lesson or point to ponder about God or our faith.

Bob Goff is an amazing story teller. His stories had me riveted, even resulting in laugh out loud moments. This never happens when I read! He has lived an absolutely incredible life and may rank as one of the most interesting people I have ever heard about . This guy would be a lot of fun to spend time with or have at a party. His style reminds me of Donald Miller.

Unfortunately this style does not impact me. I enjoyed the stories, but the points or lessons they told never struck me. This is me. I am not a lover of stories as application tools. I know many are, and I believe many in this generation will be impacted by this book. For me, it was a collection of interesting stories documenting an amazing man who has lived a unique and powerful life.

If you learn from stories, if you enjoy writings by the likes of Donald Miller, or even the popular leadership fables – then this book is for you. If this is not your style, you could still enjoy this book as I did in the form of a biography.
