OVERVIEW

Bob Goff, founder of Love Does, and NYT Bestselling Author of a book by the same name, gives us his highly anticipated follow-up, Everybody Always. He shares with us stories from his life and the hard lessons he gained in the process of learning to love everybody, always, just as God does. Whether Bob is skydiving, making friends with a worker at an airport security line, carrying a bucket around for three weeks, or witnessing to a witch doctor in Uganda, his life is full of grand adventures in the process of learning love. His underlining message, as evidenced in the way he conducts his life, is that opportunities to witness for Christ are in abundance so long as the person sharing the Gospel is open, transparent, honest, loving, concerned, and earnest.

The book inspires its readers with a desire to love dangerously, outrageously, totally grandly! Bob shares how anyone with a heart for the Lord can learn to love everybody, always. The love he shares is generous, meaning he indulges everyone he can with his time and money and influence and education in the most extravagant ways, and he talks a lot about how in the process of helping people they helped him to a greater understanding of himself. Anyone who desires to find a greater meaning in life or who wishes to serve God with greater abandon will find this book to be insightful, entertaining, and challenging.
