I picked up this book from the church giveaway table. It doesn’t look like it’s been read :)

I’ve heard the name Bob Goff, but I forgot the context. So I thought I’d give it a try.

It’s an inspirational book, though I don’t agree with all his spiritual reflections about God. I don’t like it when people say, “I don’t think Jesus would…” or “I think Jesus would…” We don’t know what Jesus would or would not do.  We can’t speak for Jesus. We only say what He has said, not what we think He would say. Goff does that a lot in this book.

But his life and adventures are pretty fun to read. It inspired me to live for boldly in obedience to God, especially in loving people. It also inspired me to have more faith in God for miracles.

I would only recommend this book to mature discerning believers to be inspired by another’s life, and not glean theological principles from it. It would help such believers to live passionately for God by taking more risks.
