LOVE DOES: DISCOVER A SECRETLY INCREDIBLE LIFE IN AN ORDINARY WORLD is just about the most life-affirming book i’ve ever read. it’s wonderful. it is the feel-good read of the summer. also, the cover reminds me of the film Up, which i love.

reading LOVE DOES, you’ll smile. you will laugh out loud. you may cry. you’ll look at love and life differently after reading this book.

the author is Bob Goff. he’s a man with his hands in a lot. he teaches. he writes. he’s a lawyer. he founded Restore International, a non-profit that fights injustices committed against children in India and Uganda.

in the foreword for LOVE DOES , Donald Miller, author of the excellent Blue Like Jazz and Searching for God Knows What, says “Bob Goff has had a greater impact on my life than any person I’ve known.”

if you read this book, Bob Goff will have an impact on your life.

this is what good books and good writing does to us: it impacts us. it leaves a mark. good books and good writing leaves an impression on our hearts, minds, and souls.

LOVE DOES is part autobiography, part philosophy. it’s part religion, part real-life. LOVE DOES is a great read.

love acts, love does. love does things for others.

“love lifts us up where we belong.” “all you need is love.” “love is a many-splendored thing.”

love does.

Bob Goff is a character. more than that, though, he has character. it shines through in his stories, his writing, and his love.

LOVE DOES is an excellent book. read it.

and more importantly, make sure our love does…
