    I have ... really mixed feelings about this book. There, I said it.

    With all its 5-star reviews, I feel somewhat in the minority (and probably am).

    Certainly, Goff writes engagingly (much like I envision he speaks live/in person), and I understand the appeal of the read. Several of the stories were literally-LOL funny.

    Other stories, though, I just found at best tacky. (The $400 room-service-bill prank on a honeymooning BFF? Really? I kept waiting for him to say, "Don't worry, I did actually cover the bill," but he never did. Like, who does that? Goff, apparently.)

    Still other times, I felt the scriptures or stories themselves somewhat shoehorned into the point Goff was attempting to make. We give "satan" (little-"s" intentional, because Goff made _such a point_ of that) too much credit? How would Goff respond to 1 Peter 5:8, or Ephesians 6:10-17? Maybe we do give the devil a lot of credit, and when he gets more credit than our Savior, I fully agree that's problematic. But ... yeah. I'm still SMH a bit on that chapter in _Love Does_.

    I'd be curious to find out how, exactly, Goff does engage the scriptures, as well--given his aversion to "Bible study." Sometimes the book feels geared more toward Christians already well versed in the Bible, to move them out of head knowledge and into action, living out what they believe. Definitely admirable--I'd also just say ... know the foundation you're built on.

    Perhaps my biggest positive takeaway is from Chapter 21, "Hearing Aid": "Tell me about the God you love; tell me about what He has inspired uniquely in you; tell me about what you're going to do about it, and a plan for your life will be pretty easy to figure out from there." (p. 143)

    Very good book, makes you think and try to look for how God wants to use you to touch someone else.
