LOVE DOES BY BOB GOFF. I would rate this book 10 out of 5 stars if I could. this book is worth its weight in GOLD. check it out ASAP. Bob Goff does an amazing job laying out his thoughts about love and he explains how the word "LOVE" is taken so much for granted in our culture. Love is an action, not a thing to say to make you feel better. in the words of DC TALk "love is a VERB". My favorite quote from the book is: I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I'm more afraid of succeeding at things that DON'T Matter." Boom, Set if OFF. order this book today once you start the first page you will wonder why it took so long for this concept to be flushed out and who better than the ambassador to Uganda Mr. Bob Goff. LOVE DOES.
I received a copy of this book from Thomas Nelson in return for an honest review.
This book is basically about how love can help people and encourage attitudes towards love in how we react to things and how we understand various situations. Bob Goff, a lawyer, has a heart for Uganda and seeking justice for those who are dealing with human trafficking issues. He shares much about his life from childhood to current with how God gripped him towards an attitude with love and persistence for doing right to others. It was a very good book. His stories made me laugh and have left me with stories to use as examples for the future as well. Definitely an encouraging book.
