Book Review: Love Does (Part 1)

If you watch this video, you won’t regret it. If you watch this video, you might cry. (Fair warning.)

The grand marshal – the beautiful boy with the amazing smile, is a Ugandan boy who fell victim to a witchdoctor. Bob Goff’s law firm brought this case to trial – the first case for trafficking in people against a witchdoctor – and won the case.

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.
