Everybody Always | Reading List

"What happens when we stop avoiding difficult people and simply love everyone?

In his wildly entertaining and inspiring follow-up to the New York Times bestselling phenomenon Love Does, Bob Goff takes readers on a life-altering journey into the secret of living without fear, care, constraint, or worry. The path toward the outsized, unfettered, liberated existence we all long for is found in a truth as simple to say as it is hard to do: love people, even the difficult ones, without distinction and without limits.

Driven by Bob’s trademark hilarious and insightful storytelling, Everybody, Always reveals the lessons Bob learned—often the hard way—about what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity, or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, Everybody, Always points the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating, the seemingly impossible. Whether losing his shoes while skydiving solo or befriending a Ugandan witch doctor, Bob steps into life with a no-limits embrace of others that is as infectious as it is extraordinarily ordinary. Everybody, Always reveals how we can do the same."

By creating a contemporary way of sharing parables, Bob Goff has done it once again with Everybody Always. I had the privilege of being on the launch team of his newest book! Within the first five chapters, I was hooked in his storytelling mode and being encouraged to live a life full of love. Bob has crafted parables based on his own life that share the love of Christ in a way that is bold and as adventurous as God calls us to be. 

While not everyone will have the ability to plan spontaneous trips to Europe or have a place of refuge in British Colombia, Bob's purpose is not to brag about his own means, but to encourage everyone to live to the fullest of their means for a larger purpose. 

This book is written to inspire Christians that are simply doing the bare minimum, to go big and love bigger. Comparing the parallels of John Eldridge's, concept of desires in our heart placed by God, both men and women have an innate desire to adventure. That is why God created a giant blue and green ball for us to live on. Bob simply wants to inspire and awaken this desire in our soul, so that we will find God through creation and people. Bob is retelling the simple lessons he has learned to encourage us to be Jesus in a world full of dark shadows. 

If you are looking for a book of encouragement and of adventures, Everybody Always is for you. Order now on Amazon!
