I’ve been remiss in not sharing one of my favourite books with you ladies.
I’ve read Love Does four times in the last two and half years, including doing it as a book study with two different groups. I don’t read books multiple times; this is the exception. I thought to mention it here because I am about to read it again.
The full title of the book is Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World, which describes the book well. Author Bob Goff is all about whimsy, with a distinctly Christ-like flavour. Bob doesn’t see people as projects, he sees them as an opportunity to give and love. Problems are chances to learn, and sometimes closed doors are begging to be kicked down. Bob sees faith as simple and real; you don’t have to be a scholar to feel the truth and depth of the Bible and you don’t have to go to seminary to touch lives with the power and love of Jesus. Bob is also a total nut, in the best sort of way, and he enjoys life in ways most of us can’t imagine. Love Does is wonderfully written, with a beautiful mix of humour, passion, and piercing truth. You’ll laugh, and you’ll likely cry, and you may do both at the same time.
This is an easy read, but you may want to take breaks to dig into what Bob exposes. It’s a great book to share with a group or with your husband. Even if he doesn’t like reading, he may enjoy this book, and it will be a great conversation starter.
