Reviews Everybody, Always

  • Molly
    I am reviewing the first five chapters of the book that I received from the publisher. I first "met" Bob when I read Love Does and because I loved that book, when I found out about his new book I was dying to get my hands on a copy of it. While reading the first five chapters, I have laughed and cried - sometimes within just a few sentences. Bob has a way with words - his sentences may be short and simple, but they go so much deeper than the surf...
  • Melinda Greenzalis
    This book is very Bob Goff - he makes things simple but not easy. Uncomplicated ideas that make you think. It (like Love Does) makes you see the possibilities not the road blocks.
  • Rushaunda Diaz
    Bob Goff has a relaxed, conversational style of writing that makes you feel as if you are just sitting down to chat over coffee. He does a fantastic job of mixing deep truth with engaging stories from his own life. One minute you will be laughing out loud, before being brought to tears, followed closely by the need to stop reading to meditate and pray on the concepts presented. Loving others well requires us to step outside our comfort zone, not ...
  • Brienne Coughlin
    Oh, where to start. I’ve had preview access to the first five chapters and this book has hit me like a brick. In Love Does, I cry every time I read (and yes, I’ve read it a lot) two stories: the one about Don Valencia and VIA Starbucks coffee, and the one where Bob and his friends sail to Hawaii. Those come quite late in the book, so I’m prepared and ready for a hard-hit to the feels. This one, however, hit me in chapter three. FIRST THING....
  • Lisa
    If the first five chapters are any indication, then Everybody, Always is a book you won't want to miss. The long-awaited follow-up to Love Does, this book by Goff continues to put on display the extravagant love of God. Somehow Goff manages to be both whimsical and serious. What I read from him makes me want to live out the faith I say I believe. I'm already a better person having read these five chapters, compliments of the publisher.Preorder th...

    Thank you to Nelson Books and Bookish for providing me with an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review.In Everybody, Always: Becoming Love in a World Full of Setbacks and Difficult People, Bob Goff talks about exactly that: the practice of showing Christ-like love to everyone we meet, particularly those we find most difficult. Using anecdotes from his own life experiences as illustrations, Goff reveals simple insights about Jesus, love...

    Walkie-Talkies, Home Improvement, & Faith - Oh, My!All the stars...all the feels..and here's why: I wasn't sure what to expect from EVERYBODY, ALWAYS as I didn't read the first NYT best selling book by Bob Goff. However, the title and the book cover intrigued me, so I decided to read an excerpt on BookishFirst. Then, yay! I was lucky enough to win a copy of the actual book for my honest review. Thank you to BookishFirst, the publisher, and the au...
  • Kelly Martin
    I have a feeling that this book, each chapter, maybe even every paragraph will constantly challenge it's readers to think about love in a new way. It's pure honesty strikes me in a way that many other books have not done. Bob invites his readers into a series of adventure weaving through separate parts of his life story on how to love everybody, always. I am excited to read the rest of this book when it comes out next month. I received an advance...
  • Juliet Campbell
    I am rating this book based on the first five chapter that were sent to me in exchange for an honest review. This book follows in the same footsteps of Bob’s first book, Love does. It gives us details of events in his life and he uses those stories to illustrate a point. In his first book, Bob used his crazy cool stories to illustrate one point or message, love does. This book is no different, the stories are centred on loving people. In the fi...
  • April Noel
    Bob's writing is so wonderful. He seems like he could be a best friend to everyone. He doesn't just admonish us to go out and love everyone-he gives examples and shows us how to go out and put it into practice with even our most difficult neighbors!I am reviewing the first five chapters of the book that I received from the publisher.
  • Mike
    I met Bob Goff in his first book - Love Does. “Met” him is proper, because the book is full of personal stories. Stories that make you laugh out loud - the kind that catch you off guard and coffee shoots out of your mouth and nose. Stories that make you cry - the kind that creep up on you even when you know they are coming and you stop reading and blink because your eyes are filled with tears. Stories that make you change - because they are c...
  • Kathryn W
    I am reviewing the first 5 Chapters of the book that I received from the Publisher. Wow! What a book so far! I feel challenged, encouraged & a lot more willing to take risks with LOVE! Loving others as myself...it's what Jesus told us to do. I'm a follower of Jesus, I want to be like Him & show His love to this fallen world. This book helps! Here's a part that I love from the book, "We're supposed to just love the people in front of us. We're the...
  • Emily P
    Bob Goff is already one of my favorite authors. I read his "Love Does" book a few years ago for the first time. I have since read it many, many times. I have bought other copies to gift to friends and co workers...it looks as though I will be doing the same with this current book, "Everybody Always." I can't really describe Bob Goff to you..both he and his wife Maria, (whom he lovingly calls "Sweet Maria", who wrote her own excellent book) but tr...
  • Sarah
    I received the first 5 chapters of this book from the publisher and cannot wait to read the entire thing. Bob Goff is easily one of my favorite authors. He explains his faith so simply and so clearly that I can't help but want to follow along and see where he's going with it. Jesus' instructions to us are so simple. "Love God" which, to me anyway, is fairly easy. And then "Love People", which is just the hardest thing EVER sometimes. Sometimes I ...
  • Jordan
    I am reviewing the first five chapters of the book that I received from the publisher. Once again, Bob tells stories of whimsical love. He makes loving people so simple, and prods you to take steps to love people better. The age of old question of “Who is my neighbor?” is answered in the title, everybody. And when do we love them? Always.
  • Amber Nash

  • Rebecca
    Bob (or is it God?) does it again! God’s love oozes out of the pages as Bob delivers one of his favorite messages—love!I received the first five chapters for review from the publisher.
  • Penny Lyon
    Currently reading the first 5 chapters (pre-release):Bob Goff once again challenges me to think of things from a new perspective. It's simple and far easier to walk away from difficult people, uncomfortable emotions, and troubled situations than to offer up ourselves to others, than to break with convention and be the weird person who actually stops to listen after asking "How are you?" The truth is, this is what we need to make a mark on this wo...
  • Sandy Cassady
    “Everybody, Always” is definitely going to be one of my favorite books. This book is both a fun, easy read, while at the same time thought provoking. The stories he tells draw you in and hold your attention, so you want to read more of them. His writing style is almost whimsical, yet relevant and life changing. In a world of difficult people, Bob gives us a different point of view, and helps us see people all around us in a different light. I...

    My sincere thanks to the author, Nelson Books of Harper Collins Christian Publishing and Bookish First for sharing this title.Publication Date: 17 Apr 18"God wants me to love the ones I don't understand, to get to know their names." -- Bob GoffThere are many lines that express the goal of this book, but this one explains it best. In a world that is increasingly disengaged with human connection and commitment, it is a wonderful reminder of how imp...
  • Ashley Heriot
    This review is on the first five chapters of Everybody, Always which I received from the Publisher. I was ecstatic to get to read these five chapters ahead of the book release date and have not been disappointed. In typical Bob Goff manner, he paints a beautiful picture of what it looks like to live and love like Jesus did by loving everybody, always. The book follows up after Bob's first book, Love Does, and expands on the idea of what love does...
  • Suzie
    This book is a great reminder of how we simply need to just love the people that we share life with. Mr. Goff has written a book that has a pleasurable reading style. It is easy to read in large sections or small chunks. It does not read like a textbook or a bible study so that was refreshing. It is full of great stories, ideas and characters that I quickly could connect to. I found myself highlighting many sentences in this book so that I could ...
  • Melissa
    I have loved Bob Goff's approachable and challenging words since I saw him speak a few years ago, and then I read Love Does, his first book and have given away several copies. Everybody Always is the best of Bob's approachable and challenging style. He tells stories of loving people and it has a way of moving you to want to do the same-- to live out the gospel without reserve. I do think that there are times when Jesus calls his followers to spea...
  • Brandi Horton
    LOVE this book. Every chapter is like a new story, a different piece that Bob shares from his own life which adds depth to the overall meaning of the book. It makes you laugh and cry and is very relatable. Simple stories and simple words but their means leaves a huge impact on you as a reader. I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone from young adult on up. I am reviewing the first five chapters that I received from the publisher
  • Alison
    I was so excited to preview the first 5 chapters of this book, courtesy of Bob and the publisher. I've read Love Does a few times now, and it is easily my favorite book. Needless to say, I was PUMPED to start in on this book.I tend to complicate my faith and my relationship with Jesus, but Bob's words remind me how simple it should be. Not easy, but simple. Jesus is love, and He has commanded us to love others. That's it. Jesus doesn't add qualif...
  • Zizi
    I am reviewing the first 5 chapters of this book that I received from the publisher. This is a book about love: a global romance of sorts but not like you'd be thinking. A collection of stories from the life of Bob Goff, a man who shares love with everyone he meets, the world over. Through his storytelling we get a glimpse of how to put true love, without conditions, into action - even with people that might be considered unlovable. "Find a way t...
  • Becca
    I am reviewing the first five chapters of the book that I received from the publisher, and the first five chapters did not disappoint for sure. I craved more when I was finished with this first excerpt and I cannot wait for the day it is released. In these first few chapters Bob shares parts of his journey with us that are so beautiful and moving. He encourages us to view everyone around us as our neighbor, even the difficult ones. He reminds us ...
  • Leah Hittie
    I am reviewing the first five chapters of the book that I received from the publisher! 11/10!! WOW, the whimsical Bob Goff does it again. Reading these 5 chapters makes me feel like I just sat at a table with Bob and got to know him for a few hours! His words of encouragement and grace come to life through engaging stories from his own life. And they are full of hope and redemption in Jesus!He admits, "It's given me a lot of comfort knowing we're...
  • Lorraine Reep
    Bob Goff is the ultimate story teller. With ease and simplicity, he talks about taking the extra steps to perform simple yet profound acts of love toward everyone. I was inspired as he shared the story of Carol, of the ordinary ways he made her life extraordinary as she battled cancer. The challenge was gentle, yet bold, to love the people who are hard to understand; those who don’t live like me or talk like me or look like me. I’m fond of pa...
