As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean's office for seven days until they finally let him enroll.

Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What follows are paradigm shifts, musings, and stories from one of the world's most delightfully engaging and winsome people. What fuels his impact? Love. But it's not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings. Bob's love takes action. Bob believes Love Does.

When Love Does, life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss.

Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob's life and attitude just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too.

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


You don't need another Christian message or a self-help book. You need to have your paradigms about the world shifted into truth. That's exactly what you get in "Love Does." Have you ever noticed that the real change in your life-the growth that sticks and becomes a part of you-never happens with a program or the sheer grit of your best efforts? It happens over time, like a glacier slowly carving valleys through the mountains.


In this book of compelling stories coupled with eye-opening truths, author Bob Goff shows you a new way to live, a way that's drenched with the whimsy of God's love and the spontaneity of following where he leads when he says "Go!" In this book, you learn what it looks like to be secretly incredible and advance God's kingdom everywhere you are and wherever you're going.


For anyone who's wanted to change the world but thought they needed money, a committee, and permission to get started, "Love Does" shows what can happen when you decide to "do" instead of "plan," "act" instead of "strategize," and fiercely, invisibly fight for the possibility God has gifted you to uniquely see.

Love Does has a kind of ?north star? effect that will push you to refocus your life and energy on what is most significant. It doesn't just invite you to respond with your God-given potential, it invites you to become a part of what God can do beyond your potential.? --Reggie Joiner, Founder and CEO of Orange

?There are some nasty rumors out there about treasure. Mostly that's it's buried and needs discovering. Or has to be mined. Or can only be located with a map and a big X. Not so, says the life of Bob Goff. Living from the center of your heart doesn't have to be complicated or elusive. Love just wakes up in the morning and gets busy loving. The treasure is sitting right there next to the pancakes. About 5 pages in, I knew my life and I were gonna have words.? --Nicole Nordeman, Mother and Musician
