James RubergAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Magnificent and InspiringJanuary 17, 2019James RubergAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bob Goff has a great sense of humor that will keep you laughing as you read this book. He also knows how to plug in some spiritual application to make you think and to produce change in your heart, mind, and soul. He communicated well with friends, and the general public, but he doesn't stop there. He goes a step further and puts in to practice Jesus command to "love your enemies." Bob is an attorney and he prosecuted a witch doctor who abused a young boy. After the witch doctor was convicted and sent to prison, the Lord spoke to Bob's heart to go visit this witch doctor in prison. The end result was a witch doctor who learned about God's forgiveness. God used Bob mightily to touch many lives for Jesus. May his example and his story communicate to our heart that God wants to use us to do the same.
Pastor G5 Stars Out Of 5Blame BobJanuary 1, 2019Pastor GQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I was already thinking about serving as a mentor with the Denver Rescue Mission. In the midst of reading Everybody Always, I signed up. That is the purpose and point of the book. "Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves" (James 1:22).
Betsy5 Stars Out Of 5EVERYBODY ALWAYSDecember 29, 2018BetsyThis book by Bob Goff is a "Can't put down book." One I'll read and reread often. Inspiring. Easy to read. Uplifting.... It can be difficult to love everyone, but his book is full of lessons and insights on following the command Jesus gave: Love as I have loved you.
Diane5 Stars Out Of 5Inspirational and ChallengingSeptember 24, 2018DianeBob is so inspirational. He lives what he writes. He is a great example of a Christ follower who has embraced the love of Christ and shares it with others. He tells big stories of how God has done amazing things, starting with small acts of love. He doesn't brag, he just shares examples from his life where he has given love instead of anger, impatience, harshness, intolerance, and the like.
His "day job" as a lawyer gives him position and platform to be in situations that many of us cannot, but we can still follow his example as we follow Jesus' leading in our own lives. We cannot underestimate our little acts of love to people we come in contact with. Bob is also a highly sought after speaker. Between these two jobs he finds himself on airplanes many days of the week. He once befriended and discipled a TSA agent 3-minutes at a time as he encountered him regularly at the airport. Bob and "Sweet Maria" (as he calls his wife) gave away their house to a widow. She became their closest family friend and then they helped her though cancer until she died. With God's amazing power and intervention over the course of many years, Bob was able to help stop the evil practices of witch doctors in Uganda.
His strategy in life is to love people, as Jesus instructed. He says, "If we want more faith we've got to do more stuff". He is not preachy or academic. He is very conversational and down-to-earth. He says, If you know what it is you want, that will direct what you are doing today. Figure out who you are becoming, and let that inform who you are now.
I highly recommend this book and/or audiobook for all teens and adults. You will be greatly inspired and challenged in your walk with the Lord.
