The Most Interesting Man in the World
, June 11, 2012
This review is from: Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World (Paperback)
Perhaps the best reaction to Bob Goff's autobiographical devotional, Love Does, is from Twitter user @prophiphop:"I'm convinced @bobgoff's life is who 'the most interesting man in the world' is modeled after." It's an entertaining read, though occasionally off-putting whenever he falls into dissing established churches. I can't recall a single prop to any church, leaving the impression that it's pretty much up to Lone Ranger Christians and parachurch organizations to carry the torch these days. Furthermore, the most obvious inspiration for how love "does" is missing: the cross. I would like to see him use his extraordinary talent for story telling not only to tell us how to emulate Jesus the Countercultural Dude but Jesus the Willing Sacrifice.
