5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible journey and a book you won't want to let go, April 23, 2012
This review is from: Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World (Paperback)
This is unlike any other book you'll read. Because Bob Goff is unlike an other person I've ever heard of.

You'll be challenged to live a better story. You'll be challenged to get up and do. You'll be challenged to look at your world differently. You'll be challenged in your own study of Jesus. You'll be challenged in your perception of church.

Publisher's description: "Love Does shares powerful stories coupled with eye-opening truths and empowers anyone who longs for a better world and a richer faith."

To me, this book was so much more. I carried it around with me each day because I felt like seeing the binding every time I looked into my purse reminded me of what I so easily forget. Love. Does.

Action. Not words.

Take it from Bob, who sat outside the dean's office at a law school for seven days until they finally admitted him. Bob, who encouraged his children to come up with ways to solve world disputes and then followed through by sending letters and then eventually dining and visiting with many world leaders. Bob, who accepted his role as consul for Uganda after believing it was a practical joke.

I can't begin to discuss everything that touched me - not in one blog post. For now, trust me. Get this book the moment you can. (Releases May 1.)

Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for my honest review through Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program. In all honesty, I'd planned on getting this book the moment I heard of it. Check out Donald Miller's A Million Miles in a Thousand Years for another life-changing perspective and more on Bob Goff.

I notice you carry the same last name, though common, as the co-author Donald Miller and hail from the same town as him. As well you have promoted Don's other book in this review. Any disclaimers on conflict of interest or pure happenstance? Just curious.

Greetings! Though I wish I was related in some way to Don Miller (as I wish I'd met him in person), I'm not connected to Don Miller at all. I do hope to run into him on the street in Portland, but it's a big town. I love Don's work and discovered him when I was living in Bellingham, Washington, actually. Funny, pure happenstance, though! Thanks for commenting, S. Salvant! Take care! - Nicole
