Love Does

Bob Goff is just a regular guy except for he's the U.S. Ugandan consul, partner in a Washington law firm, took his kids on a tour to meet the heads of state of close to 20 nations, has an office on Tom Sawyer island in Disneyland, among other unique and interesting things. He's the type of guy who will jump at the chance for adventure and whimsy because why not? He invests his life into others and has initiated substantial positive change in places such as Uganda and India. He uses his law training to set children free from slavery and fights against injustice.

While he's accomplished some amazing things and interacted with high profile people, he maintains a down to earth attitude and self-deprecating humor that gives you hope that you too can accomplish incredible things.

The book is chocked full of stories from his life and lessons that he learned from God. Make no mistake, while Bob has done some great things for the world, he is first committed to God and serving Him. It is out of this relationship that much of his work flows.

The book is light-hearted, inspirational, and fun. It's easy to read, you'll laugh out loud several times, and will probably wish there were more when it's over.

Awesomeness isn't about accolades, fame, or recognition. It's about being the hands and feet of Jesus to the world. That's the kind of awesome that shapes eternity.
