Now a New York Times Bestseller! 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. Endorsements: “If this book does not make your heart beat faster, book the next flight to Mayo Clinic!” --Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church, Chairman, Willow Creek Association “Bob Goff is a one-man tsunami of grace, a hurricane of love. He doesn't just talk about change, he really is change, as Love Does chronicles in such a vivid way. Yet, Love Does doesn't leave you feeling like you want to celebrate its author, it awakens a sense deep within that you, too, have an outrageous role to play in God's unfolding story or rescue and repair.” --Louie Giglio, Passion Conferences/Passion City Church “An interesting and compelling story (with Young Life roots) that ends with a practical challenge and punch: ‘love does’ and God can use you to do it!” --Denny Rydberg, President, Young Life “Every once in a while someone like Bob Goff shows up to remind us that some things matter a lot more than others. 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 “We liked the book a lot. Mostly, the balloons on the cover. The rest was pretty good too. Lots of stories about how God helps us.” --Aedan, Asher and Skye Peterson ages 13, 12 and 9 “This may look like a book. It’s not. It is an invitation to enter into the greatest adventure you have ever known—your life as it was meant to be lived. Hang on!” --Michael Hyatt, Author, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, MichaelHyatt.com “Bob’s ability to love people brings contagious hope and inspiration wherever he goes. The power of love showcased in this book will surely touch the hearts and souls of many people. Read Love Does and find a friend in one the world’s best hidden secrets, a person who shows how love can create connection and make a difference—even across oceans.” --George Tsereteli, Deputy Chairman of the Parliament of Georgia (former Russian Republic)

Faith in God can be exciting, daring, and fun. Love Does for Kids shares some of the Goffs' wild adventures--from holding a neighborhood parade to writing presidents from around the world to creating a town in the backyard tree. Children will laugh, dream, and be inspired to make a difference for God. As a little boy with a big personality and even bigger dreams, Bob Goff had lots of questions, and they didn't go away when he grew up. It wasn't until he learned just how big and wild and wonderful God is that he began to find answers. Once Bob learned about the deep goodness of God, he got to learn about the great power God gives His kids when they live a life full of love for others. Kids everywhere will love Bob and Lindsey's stories about how love does. With childlike faith, enthusiasm, and great whimsy, young readers will feel instantly connected to a love that acts as much as it feels. Children will walk away with a sense of wonder of how great God is and will feel empowered with things they can do that will make a tangible difference in the world. Bob and his daughter, Lindsey, who lived out many of these faith adventures, offer kids an invitation to get to know God better and to see the world as a place designed to be changed as we put our faith in action. In the same way that Love Does strikes such a deep chord with adults, young readers will experience God in new and thrilling ways and see that living out our faith is certainly not boring! Lindsey Goff Viducich is a teacher with a great love for kids. Her daily interaction with kids helped create a book that is perfectly suited for the attention span and interest of 6- to 10-year-olds. Love Does for Kids features 45 true, humorous, and exciting stories, charming four-color art, and an unforgettable message: that love does.

First Corinthians 13, sometimes known as the apostle Paul's "love chapter," is frequently used in weddings and homages to romantic love. But Paul wasn't writing about romance: he was writing as a pastor to a deeply troubled church, trying to help them embody the love of Christ in their life together. Today, the meaning of the word "love" is more ambiguous than ever. Even in the church, expectations of relationships, including those for dating and marriage, are shaped by popular culture. What Love Does and Why It Matters helps us recover Paul's pastoral and practical vision of relationships in the body of Christ. Early chapters address the use of the word "love" in everyday speech and in the Bible, the role of emotion, and the influence of romantic fiction and fairy tale. A transitional chapter explores the fatherly love of God against the background of human suffering. The rest of the book takes up an in-depth exploration of Paul's vision of love and its application to our relationships today. Each chapter includes questions to encourage personal reflection and group study.
